For Anglers Seeking Delicate and Direct Rotational Feel

Expert anglers pursuing reel rotational performance for area trout, native trout, and bass fishing have an insatiable thirst for improvement. The relentless quest for lighter reeling and higher sensitivity has led to the creation of a special tune focused on rotation—23AIRITY ST (Sensitive Tune). This ultra-light spinning reel, AIRITY, now offers an even more delicate and direct reeling experience.

The lineup, featuring ST and ST SF, includes six models specialized for finesse fishing. Maintaining the fundamental performance of the 23AIRITY/23AIRITY SF, the ball bearings (BB) in the primary rotational parts have been switched from the grease specification of the standard model to an oil specification. By opting for low-viscosity oil BBs, the reel achieves an exceptionally light rotational feel, even at the expense of the high durability provided by grease BBs.

Furthermore, the pinion's Magsealed section, crucial for waterproof and dustproof performance, has been deliberately omitted to achieve slight weight reduction, enhancing the rotational performance to a sharpened level. The result is minimal reeling resistance and an overwhelming amount of information transmitted to the angler's hand through the handle, providing a 'direct rotational feel.'

Differences from the 23AIRITY Standard Model:

1. BBs in the primary rotational parts switched to oil specification.
2. Magsealed not included.
3. Distinctive design identifying it as a Sensitive Tune model.

The 23AIRITY ST, with its meticulously refined rotational performance, is for anglers who seek the pinnacle of direct reeling feel

Low inertia is the key.
The newly developed AIRDRIVE ROTOR is made from ZAION. Maintaining the strength of the rotor from 18 EXIST, DAIWA has been able to reduce the weight significantly. Designed with focus to create a perfectly round structure, trouble free and flawless rotation have been achieved.
The rotor unit itself has seen a 16% weight reduction compared to the previous model (Based on 2500 size reel) and will set the standard for what future rotor design of small spinning reels will be.


Trouble free future.
DAIWA has constructed a bail smaller in diameter whilst providing required strength to achieve a further weight reduction to the front unit. In comparison to 18 EXIST, AIRDRIVE BAIL reduces the weight of the bail by 33% (compared to 2500 size).
DAIWA has adjusted the angle of bail setting to improve the line movement into the roller. Careful attention was given to the roller and slider and individual design alterations were done for each size of 22 EXIST, perfectly adjusting the line management for each size of the reel.


Design reflects the future.
The stand out features of the AIRDRIVE SPOOL would have to be the newly shaped spool skirt and the simple single silver coloured cosmetic. Just by looking at the spool it is clear the structure has been redeveloped, reducing the weight and maximising the feeling of presence.

Reducing the spool weight creates many benefits for a reel; the total weight of reel is reduced, oscillation is improved, less resistance during winding and rotation, better balance when attached to the rod and of course the reel feels light and easy to fish.


Friction free rotation.
AIRDRIVE SHAFT has a non contact structure between the mainshaft and the pinion gear. In addition to this, both ends of pinion gear are now supported with bearings to relay the crank power from the handle to the rotor with a higher level of efficiency. By adding high quality collars to the mainshaft, rotational noise has been reduced significantly.

AIRDRIVE SHAFT creates the feel of smooth, quiet rotation and provides anglers with torque and power.


This design incorporates a one-piece frame and a one-piece threaded side plate. Because screws are not necessary to attach the side plate and hold the main gear, the interior space in the body is greater allowing for a larger more powerful gear held in place by the lighter, sturdier body rather than the traditional side plate
