The famous HRF name re-enters the baitcaster realm, based on the game-changing Tatula design released in 2013, the HRF delivers the ultimate in performance. The revolutionary T-Wing System (TWS), Air Rotation, Real Four, Digigear, Magforce Z and UTD of the Tatula combines with a host of new features including, corrosion-resistant ball bearings (CRBB), duraluminium spool, and EVA knobs to make the HRF a must-have saltwater baitcaster.
Refinement, smoothness and class epitomize the HRF and make it a reel to rival the performance of many current hi-end reels. Looking for technology, value and cutting edge performance then look no further than the new HRF.
At the heart of the HRF is the finest of Daiwa’s designs and innovations – Real Four – Real Engine, Real Control, Real Endurance, and Real Custom combine to make HRF technically advanced and a dream to use. A precision designed solid aluminium frame and gear side plate delivers maximum power and unrivalled durability, while the ergonomically designed reel profile fits effortlessly in the palm of the hand.
The superior casting performance and ultimate casting ease of the HRF all stem from Daiwa’s revolutionary T-Wing System (TWS). A great leap forward over traditional line guide systems; TWS delivers unparalleled casting performance and line control, a reduction in line noise and friction, and improved reel stability and balance. Featuring a T-shaped line guide that pivots forward and back between the cast and retrieve position, TWS delivers simplicity and ease and now allows for efficient, easy casting every time, and with unrivalled distance and ease.
The Digigear II gear design combines with the new Air Rotation system to create a reel that is silky smooth and effortless on the crank, and flawless and refined when under load. At the core of Air Rotation is precision designed and machined gearing, an advancement in refinement that makes for buttery cranking and unrivalled smoothness. Air Rotation is as light as air and as smooth silk.
Corrosion is now a thing of the past with five corrosion resistant ball bearings (CRBB) and a series of corrosion resistant treated internal components joining forces to make the HRF as rugged and corrosion resistant as it is striking and good looking. The ultimate casting control system is now at your fingertips with Daiwa’s legendary Magforce Z magnetic cast control system offering anglers of any skill-level a cast control system to maximize casting ease, distance and performance.
Featuring the best of both worlds, including old-fashioned mechanical braking and today’s advanced magnetic braking technology, Magforce Z easily adjusts to any skill level to control backlash and increase on-water performance. With Magforce Z, spool startup is faster and the spool spins longer making for easier and longer casts. The HRF takes these Magforce Z attributes one-step further, with a twenty-increment magnetic cast control dial giving anglers more precision and control than ever before.
Your favourite line has a new place to call home with HRF new duraluminium spool lighter, faster and stronger than traditional baitcaster spools. Its positives don’t end there with the spool one of the widest available in a baitcaster of its size. The wider spool delivers improved castability due to line being able to more freely unwind from the spool. An attribute that is further enhanced by the T-Wing System with the wide casting area of the T-Wing allowing unrestricted line-flow from the spool.
Combine these features and the result is a reduction in line angle, line friction, and backlashes, and a significant improvement in overall casting performance. The all-new HRF continues Daiwa’s dominance in casting excellence.
Stopping power is equally at your fingertips with Daiwa’s UTD- Ultimate Tournament Drag giving you the muscle to stop the toughest and hardest pulling fish. With 7kg of drag on offer, you’ll have the ability to stop just about any fish that swims and do so with silky smooth stopping power.
Partnering the 7kg drag and offering you all the cranking power you’ll ever need is a 90mm swept handle. Comfort and balance are essential for control and power when cranking and there’s no better way of achieving this than with Daiwa’s famous swept hand design.
The 100mm handle delivers maximum cranking power, while the swept handle brings the cranking handle closer to the reel’s centre of balance resulting in increased balance, power and comfort. Large EVA ball-shaped handle knobs offer added comfort and ultimate handle control. A must for when the weather gets wet and the fishing gets wild.
Loaded with features and with a spec sheet to impress including a 7.3:1 retrieve ratio, seven ball bearings, left and right-hand models, 7kg of drag, and an impressive 225 gram body weight, the HRF is a baitcaster to impress and the baitcaster that will be hard to forget.
Innovative design, advanced materials and technology, and exceptional strength combine to make the HRF one of the most advanced and best-valued reels available.
HYPER-DIGIGEAR – Featuring, Daiwa’s famous machine cut gear system, Hyper Digigear, results in silky smooth precision meshing between the main and pinion gear. Ultra tough, surface treated, high tensile alloy drive gear and marine bronze pinion gear allow for increased gear teeth accuracy and improved gear meshing, smoothness, and strength.
INFINITE ANTI REVERSE – Daiwa’s advanced system that limits rearward backplay handle movement to almost zero for solid hooksets with less shock to the reel. The result is the elimination of handle slap-back and the unwanted release of line.
ALLOY HANDLE – Light, yet strong, and highly corrosion resistant this a handle that’s the great all-rounder and suited to most applications.
UTD-DRAG – A system that combines ultra smooth low inertia with ultimate fish stopping power. UTD combines advanced carbon washers, alloy and stainless steel drag plates with specially designed grease for ultra-smooth performance.
ALUMINIUM BODY – Lightweight and incredibly strong, aluminium allows strength and weightless to be achieved without the cost and corrosion issues of other metals such as magnesium.
CRBB – Lasting 12 times longer than standard stainless steel bearings Daiwa’s CRBBs feature specially treated stainless steel, and a protective shield on the bearing race that seals out sand, fine grit, salt crystals and other abrasives. The result is a longer lasting bearing that’s protected from the corrosive elements that destroy traditional bearings.
EVA KNOB – Delivered enhanced angler comfort and contact, EVA knobs provide optimum contact in wet conditions.
MAGFORCE Z – The next generation of Daiwa’s magnetic anti-backlash system like Magforce V before it combines the best aspects of modern magnetic and centrifugal breaking, albeit with some slight differences. Unlike Magforce V magnetic braking is only applied at maximum spool speed, as a result it allows the spool to reach a higher peak speed and allows it to spin for longer. Magforce Z is considered to be best suited to longer casting pursuits and heavier weights.
TWS – Daiwa’s revolutionary T-Wing System addresses the issue of traditional line guide/level wind systems constricting line flow by delivering a T-shaped line guide that is larger, wider and less restrictive. TWS allows line to exit freely from the spool with minimal line angle, minimal friction and constriction, thereby reducing line noise and backlash, and delivering more accurate and longer casts.
