daiwa_logo.gif (3046 bytes)Daiwa Saltwater Reels Daiwa produces some excellent reels, and they've really done some great things with their newest additions to the line. This Japanese manufacturer is very conservative, they are slow to introduce new contraptions, but once developed they stay with a winner. An indication of this is the Black Gold spinning series. I've been using these reels since I lived back in Texas...that's since 1984! The BG series are, in my opinion, as good a spinning reel you can buy for anywhere near the selling price. The conventional style SL20 and 30 baitcasters are standards out here, and very well regarded for their light line handling, casting, and smooth drags.  Diawa has some very strong contenders in the saltwater arena, and their new models really hit the nail on the head. Frankly, Daiwa's quality and innovation in reel design was one big reason why we elected to move away from Shimano's anti-competitive BS.  Daiwa represents a better competitive value, their quality is quite evident and they allow us to offer our clients a better value without the anti-competitive routine of the folks from Shimano. Within the Japanese market, Daiwa has long been considered the best. They don't build bikes, they build fishing reels...properly.

Daiwa Saltist Back Bay
Spinning LT Reels
FREE SUPER BRAID RIGGING

Daiwa makes some great spinners, and the Back Bay Saltist LT's are just a couple that make a lot of good sense for folks fishing inshore, hitting the harbors and bays.  These light weight reels are made like heavyweights.  Very durable materials, made for the harsh nature of saltwater fishing. These reels are based upon the Saltist spinning reels, but reduce the mass a tad. The black cosmetics are great, minimal spool wobble at lighter drag settings, overall feel is very Daiwa - smooth and effortless.  We are also stocking the Back Bay rods from Daiwa, nice matches for these fine reels and well within budget.

From Daiwa: The standard for inshore and back bay saltwater fisherman country-wide has arrived. The Saltist Back Bay LT Reel employs our revolutionary HARDBODYZ design- utilizing an aluminum metal alloy, giving maximum strength and minimizing weight. These design features combine to create one of the lightest, strongest reels on the saltwater market. The Magsealed main shaft employ a magnetic oil that repels intrusion from salt water without compromising  performance. The machined aluminum alloy DigiGear™ assures smooth, rugged performance with digitally milled gearing to maximize the efficiency of the gear-tooth interaction. Ideally suited for 8- and 10-pound test mono and equivalent braid, the Saltist Back Bay LT is Daiwa’s state of the art interpretation of the perfect light tackle backwater spinning reel. 

Key Features
 

LT CONCEPT - light and ridged aluminum construction 

MAGSEALED construction repels salt and grime

Lightweight AIR ROTOR

Stainless steel AIR BAIL technology

DigiGear - Digital Gear Design

7-bearing (6+1) system with instant anti-reverse

MAGNETIC OIL
Magnetic Oil is one of a new generation of Nano Fluids that can change density and shape when a magnetic field is applied.

 

AIR ROTOR DESIGN
The Air Rotor weighs up to 15% less than ordinary rotor designs. Its unique shape reduces unnecessary weight while distributing stress more evenly throughout the rotor for maximum strength.

Daiwa Back Bay Rods

The Back Bay series of rods were designed and tested using the harsh and sometimes unforgiving conditions of East Coast Back Bay fishing. These spinning rods were engineered with East Coast fishing in mind and then made versatile enough to crossover into many other markets. Rods were designed with heavier power ratings to excel at both live bait fishing and casting lures. If you are in the market for a series of dedicated inshore rods designed and tested for fishing the back bays, then you owe yourself a look at Daiwa’s all new Back Bay series rods.

Daiwa Lexa Series

Daiwa's very successful Lexa series reels get some new models and cosmetic changes for 2017. Some nice additions, still many, many, models for different fishermen's tastes and applications.

Basically there are two series of reels in the Lexa Baitcasting Series:
All Lexa reels feature:
Extended line capacity for larger gamefish and heavier lines
Ultimate Tournament Carbon Drag
Swept Handle with weight reducing cutouts
Handle Length: 300 size 100mm, 400 size 120mm
Aluminum frame and side plate - gear side
Magforce cast control
Infinite Anti-Reverse - Dual Stopper
Most models available in lefty as well as standard right hand retrieve

Original/Stanrdard Lexa Reels - offer 7 Bearings (2CRBB, 4 BB, and 1 RB)
HD Series Lexa Reels - Stainless Steel Drive and Pinion Gear, 7 Bearing System (6 CRBB + 1 RB)

CRBB - corrosion resistant bearings, BB - ball bearings, RB - Roller Bearing

We offer FREE BRAID & MONO SPOOLING and FREE SHIPPING on these wonderful reels - both Standard and HD series Lexa Reels
Rigging: given the capability of these reels, there are many rigging options available. Solid Toro Tamer Braid is no charge, white, inshore brown or depth finder multi-color. One of the more popular options makes use of 30-40# Braid which allows the reel to be used with up to 30# leader. We have three versions of Toro Tamer Hollow lines, 8 strand and 16 strand products. The 30# and 40# 8 strand is skinny and works great as a line used with a knot connection where thin diameter is helpful in gaining capactity. It's feel is far superior to standard 4 strand lines, much smoother and more round. The 16 strand 30-40# is best (industry best) for knotless style rigging with the leader run inside the hollow braid. We take that a step further with introduction of ToroTamer's 16 Strand Ultra Thin 20 and 30# Spliceable braids. (The 8 strand carries a +$15 charge, the 16 strand is an additional $30, and the Ultra Thin $40  added expense for up to 300 yds. And, "solid" braid with a tied connection is FREE). 

Daiwa LEXA HD!

300 Yards FREE SUPER BRAID

Get 300 yards of top quality Gel Spun Braid Spooling at no extra charge with these innovative NEW reels.

New for 2015 - first shown at ICAST in July and available now. Six models in the HD series. Two body sizes, 300 and 400. Some significant enhancements, tougher stainless steel drive and pinion gears, AND six corrosion resistant ball bearings (CRBB) plus one roller bearing, custom handle with swept design.

The Lexa HD's take the very popular and well respected Lexa to a new level of refinement and performance, with 25 lbs of drag capable on the 400 and 22 lbs on the 300 you have enough stopping power to deal with white seabass, tarpon, yellowtail, dorado and sailfish (and more). These compact baitcasters can toss a lure beautifully, and they have enough line capacity and drag to deal with most fish you'll encounter. Of course with their levelwind design they make life easier for those doing a lot of cast and retrieve style fishing with artificials. All in all, this is a very nice enhancement/refinement on a great reel and a fine value as well given it's construction. For what it's worth, I own a Lexa 300, I think I've found a good reason to buy a 400. The HD's run $299 for the 400 and $249 for the 300 sizes.

Daiwa LEXA!

300 Yards FREE SUPER BRAID

Get 300 yards of top quality Gel Spun Braid Spooling at no extra charge with these innovative NEW reels.

Daiwa's Lexa series reels have been tremendous values and tremendous reels to own. Relatively small baitcasters with high drag capability make them great inshore reels with some serious offshore capability.

This series first was shown at ICAST 2012, adding models in 2013 introducing a new 400 size, these have proven their merit for applications requiring greater capacity - in several  configurations. In 2016 ICAST Daiwa updated the Lexa series, added some models with asked for features like the clicker which is now available on some models, further refined gear ratio offerings, etc. For 2017 and beyond Daiwa refined the models further, and added new WINN grip handle knobs.
Daiwa's 400 sized reels run $249, the 300 size @ $199

At ICAST 2017 Daiwa did an update to the "standard" LEXA series reels. They've now incorporated new WINN GRIP Knobs to this wonderful series of reels. The standard 10 models now make use of the durable, tacky sure-grip security and positive feel of WINN handle knobs. This represents a very nice enhancement to some wonderful inshore reels.

LEXA W/CLICKERS - CC Models

Daiwa introduced standard series LEXA reels with LOUD clickers, great for slow trolling live baits or bait fishing in general. The new Lexa 300 CC models have all the standard features, but add a nice LOUD clicker. Bait fishermen have been asking for a clicker, and nice to see that Daiwa is listening.

LEXA Line Counter Baitcasting Reels

More often employed by anglers fishing freshwater, line counter version Lexa reels see duty by those fishing vertically as well as trolling.  Anglers targeting salmon make great use of the feature on the troll. Once they find the correct distance from the boat for a successful catch, it's far more accurate and repeatable to make use of an LC to hit the same target.  These reels will not have the same level of freespool performance as the other Lexa reels, the line counter function takes away from the casting ability. So, there's a tradeoff with this feature. LC's also offer a line counter on the 300 & 400 size.

Want to run a Lexa on a Deckhand Style rod?  Hard to do without a reel clamp.

Duran Fishing Products
Problem Solved
2019 New Product Introduction

Here we go again...

One of the funnest aspects to running this business is working with new manufacturers on the way up. Duran Fishing Products is a great example, a small machining company with some very good creative ideas.  The DFP Standard Clamp is their first product, and they have another one coming soon.  For those of us who have bought or wanted to buy one of the newer low profile baitcasters, like Okuma's Komodo, Daiwa Lexa, or some other nameless bike manufacturers large baitcasters, the reel's design leaves out something that most of us want to have - a reel clamp.  It's a profound positive, a requirement, when we fish heavier line tests, and these new designed baitcasters with series drag capability are made to fish heavy. They beg for a clamp, but it's not available from the reel's manufactuer. As the line test increases, a clamp becomes more necessary. Many of us have seen what happens when a reel flies off a reel seat and breaks rod guides on it's way to the deep... A reel clamp is mandatory, not optional, should you wish to put one of these reels on a deckhand style rod.

Every manufacturer missed this key angler need, but there were a few firms that ran with the ball, at lest for a while.  Daiwa had a $55 clamp assembly, but they discontinued it. Tiburon has one, but it's only good on model of a particular manufacturers reel - isn't universal and won't work on lefty reels. This is something different. The Duran clamp is made to fit well over 40 different reels!

In the past there have been several manufacturers who have come to market wih a clamp assembly for use with these new reels, but they've not been compatible across the different reels. What worked for a Lexa would not work on a a Tranx or Komodo. And, to further complicate things, what worked on a right hand retrieve reel would NOT work on a lefty. Ed Duran, the fellow beind these products, solved all those issues. As you can see from the image below, we set up a Lexa 400 lefty with the clamp, works just fine as does the right hand retrieve version.

This patent pending clamp is the most versatile clamping system on the market. It will fit OVER 40 different reels! All components of the DFP Clamp are precision CNC machined out of aircraft grade billet 6061 aluminum, making the single frame design strong and sturdy. All components contain 3D machined surfaces that allow for more contact with the reel foot and rod, providing stronger clamping force. The anodized finish provides resitance to wear and the harsh effects of saltwater, and they look great, too. Even with reels that offer a clamp, you may find yourself running this clamp assembly instead given the way it holds your reel onto the rod. In terms of compatibility, this new design clamp will fit shimano Tranx 400/500, Daiwa Lexa 400, Okuma Komodo 400 series, Torium 14-40, Penn Fathoms, Avet LX/JX/HX, Daiwa Saltist and Saltiga...and many more.

Compatibility

The DFP Standard will fit the vast majority of rods on the market, however if you have an old-school FAT rod, say a Seeker 6480 or an Ulua, you'l need a larger sized clamp. Don't worry, machining has been completed, a larger size is coming soon. But, that's a limited application piece, if your rod is fat you'd need it, otherwise don't go that direction because it's compatibility is more limited.  We'll have these available in a month or so if you need. But, for now, let's rejoice in what we have! We've been looking long and hard for something like this with more compatibility between manufacturers, and we're glad to say we found it in Ed Duran's new DFP Clamp.

Daiwa Luna!

Here's another wonderful reel from Daiwa.   These new Daiwa reels are made for fishing.  Here's a great case in point about the benefits of competition in terms of pressing a manufacturer to build better gear. The new Daiwa Luna 253 and 300 are excellent in design and execution.  These new reels replace the 253 and 300 CVZ's.  There are several upgrades. The reels are made from bar stock aluminum, machined not cast. The exquisite machining is on a level with Daiwa's Saltiga reels, same for the rich anodized gold finish. They feature CRBB bearings for extended service life. (Shielded bearings being less prone to maintenance issues than some other nameless manufacturer's "open" AllRustBearings)

 

Most noticeable with the new Daiwa Luna reels is the free floating spool.  Like the Sealine-X series reels, when the reel is in the casting mode the spool totally disengages from the drive train.  The reel feature five corrosion resistant ball bearings and 1 roller bearing.  The 253 has a massive 7 disc drag, and the 300 features an 11 disk drag system!  Great power from both of these nifty reels.  You'll also notice the handle has been upgraded from the older CVZ's.  These are superb reels, in my estimation better than that other nameless company's TE's (which they have the audacity to try to charge $400 for).
