Cypress, CA – Renowned for its premium spinning reels, Daiwa is proud to announce yet another significant breakthrough in spinning-reel technology with the Luvias LT. Whether you chase trout and salmon, inshore species or bass, the Luvias LT family is designed to offer the utmost in performance, longevity and versatility.
Daiwa’s skilled product development team designed the new Luvias LT with top-of-the-line components, compounds and features. For starters, the Luvias LT features a lightweight one-piece monocoque body made from Zaion®, which collectively offers abundant rigidity, even under the pressure of massive fish.
Monocoque (/ˈmɒnəˌkɒk, -ˌkoʊk/) is a structural system used widely in military and boat building applications, whereby internal loads are supported through the external skin – think of symmetrical design of an egg. Daiwa embraces this design inventiveness in the new Luvias LT series, and moreover, incorporates advanced Zaion material to bolster overall performance of the monocoque structural system.
Zaion, a Daiwa exclusive, is a high-density carbon with anti-corrosion properties that is both lighter and as strong as most metals. Zaion’s engineers set out to build a material that was as strong as metal but light as carbon. Conventional wisdom holds that an aluminum reel offers toughness, while polycarbonate is needed to make a light body and rotor. Zaion is a fusion of these two qualities. While ordinary carbon is made of nylon resin and carbon fibers at 20%, Zaion boasts twice the density of carbon fibers. The result is a unique material that is as strong and corrosive resistant and 50% lighter than aluminum.
Daiwa’s proprietary Zaion compound is also used in the Luvias LT’s Air Rotor and Air Bail system, too, winding line around the spool with silky precision. The reduced weight in the rotor section makes it infinitely easier to turn the handle, so anglers can focus on the lure and technique, not cranking the handle.
The Luvias LT also features a Magsealed body line and roller, tough Digigear, and Advanced Tournament Drag (ATD). Designed and manufactured in Japan, every part of this reel is truly maximized to offer anglers the best spinning reel performance they’re ever experienced.
Magsealed means the Daiwa Luvias LT keeps spinning forever with nearly zero friction and without any special maintenance, while offering unmatched water resistance. It’s a technology that benefits anyone who desires the longevity and smooth performance of a new reel. This is not just an improvement, but true innovation. This is what MAGSEALED is all about. By using this technology and space engineering, Daiwa has perfected the reel’s water resistance and durability by blocking even micro-level impurities.
Digigear is digitally developed gearing for maximum performance and endurance. It smoothly and efficiently transmits the power of the handle directly to the rotor.
When you’re considering a tough, lightweight and comfortable spinning reel, look no further than Daiwa’s new Luvias LT – a reel that very much ups the standards of spinning reel performance.
