Cypress, CA – Daiwa is proud to announce the launch of a brand new website built specifically to announce the introduction of a wealth of new fishing products—everything from reels, rods, tackle, line and fishing accessories. The website was built not only to showcase new product offerings but offer a highly interactive experience for anglers.
What follows in this release is a quick look at many of these products, all of which will be covered in more detail on http://daiwaproductshowcase.com.
Step up to the big time. Daiwa’s completely redesigned Saltiga LD series features the smoothest, most powerful and dependable lever-drag reels available today. Six single-speed models, ten 2-speed models, plus two special-purpose tournament style sailfish designs cover all the bases for saltwater anglers from inshore and near shore to offshore and the canyons.
All Saltiga LD reels feature a one-piece machined aluminum frame and side plate to assure precise alignment of bearings and gears for amazingly smooth performance, less flex, more power and reduced binding even during the fiercest battles. Daiwa’s acclaimed Advanced Tournament Drag System (ATD) keeps each Saltiga LD cool during the heat of battle while providing consistent maximum pressure through the end game.
Backed by Daiwa’s Executive Saltiga Five Year Warranty and Service – the best warranty in the market – the Saltiga LD line provides top shelf performance. These are the reels you need when second best just won’t do.
MSRP $419.99 – $699.99
Daiwa is proud to introduce the next generation of BG spinning reels to saltwater anglers of all stripes, this time with a one piece Monocoque aluminum body. Light and strong like a Formula One racing car, the reels are lighter and stronger through use of Monocoque body technology.
In terms of application, the reels are designed for everything from inshore to heavy offshore fishing—with models like the BGMQ2500D-H perfect for speckled trout to models like the BGMQ20000 designed to withstand the pressures of fishing giant bluefin tuna. The reels also feature an all-aluminum frame and features Digigear technology. Compared to most of the competition, the gears are between 20% to 40% larger. The gears also feature a larger tooth patter, giving the gears a much longer gear life and durability than competitive reels. Tests reveal a gear life that is one to three times the length of competitive reels.
MSRP $199.99 – $279.99
For 2020, Daiwa’s Saltiga has been fully reimagined and redesigned, culminating in the best saltwater spinning reel on the market. For starters, the new Saltiga’s single-piece high-strength aluminum body can house much larger internal gearing, meaning more power to tame saltwater beasts. Housed within the Monocoque body is the new G1 Duralumin cut Digigear system, digitally developed gearing with bigger teeth and more touch points to yield gear strength and torque more than double its predecessors.
Made in Japan and bulging at the seams with exclusive Daiwa technology and design excellence, Saltiga sets the new standard for unfaltering performance, strength and power in saltwater spinning reels.
MSRP $999.99 – $1,099.99
Just when you thought the in-demand Tatula reel family couldn’t get any better, Daiwa unleashes the new Tatula 300, a true 300-size reel for throwing big bass baits. Daiwa’s progressive product development team redesigned the new Tatula to bring anglers a slightly larger option perfect for a variety of applications including outsized, deep-diving crankbaits, swimbaits, A rigs, and more. In short, it’s the perfect option for anglers fishing large presentations for even larger fish… What really makes The Daiwa Tatula 300 so special is the inclusion of the T-Wing System level-wind. When you take the reel out of gear it allows for less resistance on the line, allowing the line to cast further. Daiwa’s spool lets anglers finely tune the spool tension while the T-Wing System level-wind opens up line feed, working together to cast longer, more accurately, and provide stress-free control when chunking into the wind, skipping baits or casting large lures. The T-Wing System is also very efficient at reducing backlashes on the 300-size reel with large spool.
When you’re considering a slightly larger palmable baitcaster, look no further than Daiwa’s new TATULA 300…a reel that is set to bring a whole new level of efficiency to fishing large baits for big fish.
They’ve done it again. Daiwa has just launched another Tatula reel that promises anglers a wealth of performance and value. The reel was specifically designed and manufactured to bring anglers looking for an entry level baitcaster an entirely new standard of performance and aesthetics. Perfect for everything from plastics to cranks to Chatterbaits and more, the TATULA CT (Compact) brings versatility to anglers of all walks. Extremely palmable and a mere 7.2 ounces, the reel feels great in the hand and your choice of favorite rods. Like the other higher priced reels in the Tatula family, what really makes The Daiwa TATULA CT so special is the inclusion of the T-Wing System level-wind. When you take the reel out of gear it allows for less resistance on the line, allowing the line to cast farther and less occurrence of backlashes.
