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 insight 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.
20 INFEET is the initial range in the INFEET family, consisting of 5 of the most in demand models for serious light tackle anglers. Utilising Daiwa’s X45 and HVF technology, INFEET rods are incredibly light weight, weighing in under 90g for all models. This lightweight design delivers incredible sensitivity, allowing anglers to detect the most timid of bites on light line. INFEET features brand new exclusive Daiwa reel seats, which have been sculpted to perfectly fit into anglers’ hands to provide a comfortable, reassuring fit even in wet and cold conditions. Fitted with Fuji Fazlite guides, the latest in affordable brilliance from Fuji, precise line flow and trouble-free casting performance is a given. Size #5 tip guides provide enough diameter to pass more bulky leader knots while not disturbing the responsiveness of the lightweight sensitive blanks.
DAIWA REEL SEAT
One of the strengths of Daiwa rod design. Designing and producing exclusive reel seats allows Daiwa rods to be unique with functional benefits over the competition. More comfortable, better designs and unique looks is what Daiwa reel seat design is all about.
FUJI FAZLITE RING
A new guide material designed to meet the performance demands of Fuji’s premier K-Series guides, Fazlite has excellent hardness, thermal conductivity and bend strength. Fazlite guides have a beautiful deep blue color, are braid-proof, rod-locker tough and smooth as silk.
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.
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.
FUJI STAINLEES STEEL GUIDES
Light, strong, and highly corrosion resistant, Fuji stainless steel guides are tailor-made for Australia’s harsh conditions.
