Team Daiwa makes its debut into heavy-tackle saltwater rods with TD Saltwater. A newly developed series to accommodate the demand for high-quality and affordable saltwater rods.
The heart of TD Saltwater begins with Daiwa’s BRAIDING-X graphite technology, a graphite tape which is applied to the butt section of the blank. Wrapping in this style adds a level of stiffness and rigidity to the overall blank construction without the added weight and diameter of a whole extra layer of the HSD graphite cloth.
BRAIDING-X is used for the bottom half of the blank’s construction, delivering improved lifting power and ultimately higher strength.
TD Saltwater’s actions are tried and tested around the country, featuring jigging and boat-fishing specific models, a number of actions for fishing lures and soft plastics on reefs chasing snapper and pelagic species, and new actions specially designed for the growth in TaiRubber fishing, using lures like Daiwa’s KOHGA to chase Snapper and other bottom-dwelling reef species.
Outfitting TD Saltwater is Fuji’s Corrosion Control (BC) ‘O’ ring guides. When it comes to durable and affordable guide solutions, Fuji’s O ring leaves all others behind. Slimline EVA two-tone grips make TD Saltwater stand out from the crowd, and are a class act paired with almost any large size spinning reel.
