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.
INFEET Z is the middle tier in the INFEET family and perfectly combines historic Daiwa design with the most advanced materials to produce a truly outstanding finesse rod series. Six models encompass the INFEET Z range and the first thing you’ll notice is the traditional ‘Heartland’ style reel seat. This is indeed a brand-new Air Sensor design that utilises the latest in carbon infused resin materials to produce a reel seat which is hollow in construction yet incredibly durable, resulting in one of the lightest reel seats on the market. INFEET Z’s blank construction utilises the latest in Daiwa’s X45 technology, Next Gen X45 is applied to the butt section of the rod, increasing torsional stiffness and improving blank recovery.
A combination of Fuji stainless steel SiC guides on the butt section of the rod, and Fuji Titanium SiC guides on the tip, makes INFEET Z rods feel responsive, crisp and an absolute joy to use.
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 control technology in the blank construction process, Nanoplus allows for increased graphite density to be achieved within a graphite rod blank.
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.
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 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.
