Daiwa has long been leading the way for light tackle sport fishing equipment. It began with brands like Gekkabijin, evolved to SilverWolf and now has come full circle, with the release of the 20 INFEET rod range. Gleaned from years of experience in creating the pinnacle of finesse rod designs in Japan and Australia, combined with the insights and expertise of top Daiwa Australia Pro-Staff, the 20 INFEET range is like nothing ever released before.
INFEET is the most technique specific rods to ever be released into the Australian market, with three price ranges covering all anglers’ budgets, there’s nothing a serious light tackle angler would need that INFEET can’t deliver. Designed with deliberately shorter butts than all other Daiwa rods before them, INFEET has benefitted from all the hours of experience from Daiwa’s R&D team and group of anglers.
INFEET EX is the flagship of the INFEET family. There was nothing left to chance with the development of the INFEET EX range. Utilising the newest of Daiwa technologies including Next Gen X45 graphite for the full length of the blank, SVF Nanoplus graphite and the latest in Airsensor reel seat technology. The features don’t end there either, INFEET EX features a combination Fuji Titanium SiC and Daiwa AGS guide train, with Titanium framed stripper guides and AGS carbon-fibre tip guides to keep weight to a minimum and maximise sensitivity. Certain INFEET EX models also feature solid-tip constructions for unmatched combinations of light, fast action tips and the perfect fish controlling action down low. Finishing off the piece is Daiwa’s Airfoam grips for unmatched comfort and further reducing the weight.
Weighing a mere fraction of the weight of traditional guides (40% lighter than an equivalent sized titanium guide) AGS guides feature a solid carbon fibre frame construction that minimizes weight, improves casting distance and performance, and delivers faster rod speed, reduced rod vibration and angler fatigue, and greater rod sensitivity.
AIR SENSOR REEL SEAT
Daiwa’s carbon fibre reel seat that’s minimal in weight, yet high in strength and sensitivity. Our ultimate high end, high performance reel seat.
Through the use of nano resin technology, SVF Nanoplus blanks are lighter and have increased sensitivity over standard SVF blanks due to their higher carbon density.
Developed to eliminate blank twist and increase power, X45 features a Bias Wrap Construction, left/right 45 degree carbon weave within the blank. X45 radically improves rod strength and durability by eliminating twist and preventing the blank from losing its round form. The elimination of this twist allows for a lighter, stronger and more powerful and sensitive rod.
A super high-density foam that is as sensitive as cork, but without its short comings such as wearing and discoloration. Strong, sensitive, hard-wearing and attractive.
FUJI SIC RING
SiC has been the gold standard of guide ring material for over 20 years. Super hard, light, and highly polished and smooth, SiC guides are an excellent dissipater of heat making them ideal for light drags and/or big fish
FUJI TITANIUM GUIDES
The pinnacle of metal-framed guides titanium is lighter, stronger and more corrosion resistant than other metals.
A one-piece, single, rear grip that runs from the reel seat to the end of the rod.
Bias construction within the ferrule allows it to flex with the rod, eliminating the weak, unbending spot caused by ordinary ferrules. The result of this revolutionary technology is a multi-piece blank that matches the performance of one-piece blanks in flex, power and responsiveness.
