There are few fishing methods quite as rewarding as spinning a lure or metal off the rocks to catch prized sportfish like Tailor or Mulloway, and Daiwa’s new SEABASS range of rods is purpose built to excel in these conditions. One of Daiwa’s more popular rod ranges in recent years, 23 SEABASS represents a nice upgrade from the outgoing model, with new blanks courtesy of HVF graphite and Braiding-X producing a lighter weight rod with improved power for longer casts. Fuji’s new anti-tangle ‘O’ ring guides outfit the rod for unmatched line management. A new Daiwa exclusive reel seat is ergonomic and provides increased grip and comfort for an all-day casting session. With an expanded model line-up featuring heavier rated options, there’s now more choice than ever when looking for a rod to attack the stones.

 

Features

BRAIDING X - Daiwa’s latest carbon technology, Braiding X is a low resin, high strength, reduced weight, high density, carbon weave that creates a blank that has maximum density, yet is super light, sensitive, and highly responsiveness.

FUJI ALUMINIUM OXIDE RING - An entry level guide that has been used for many years, Aluminum Oxide guides are diamond polished to an ultra-smooth finish, economically priced and come in a variety of frame styles and finishes.

FUJI STAINLEES STEEL GUIDES - Light, strong, and highly corrosion resistant, Fuji stainless steel guides are tailor-made for Australia's harsh conditions.

HVF - HVF (High Volume Fibre) combines precise resin control with unidirectional graphite fibre to produce a blank with maximum graphite density, making it incredibly sensitive, light and responsive.
