High-Performance Spinning Reel for Eging with Advanced Operability by "MQ×AIRDRIVE DESIGN"

The 23EMERALDAS RX, featuring the AIRDRIVE DESIGN, elevates operability to a new level, providing significant advantages for eging, which requires repeated "winding" and "jerking."

Built on Daiwa’s reel design philosophy that "lightweight without sufficient practical performance is meaningless," this reel ensures strength without compromise. The ZAION V MQ body guarantees this strength, making it a reliable choice even for the demanding nature of eging. The Tough Digigear and Daiwa’s unique waterproof and durability technology, MAGSEALED, ensure smooth and quiet rotation, maintaining initial performance for stress-free fishing.

The drag system features ATD TYPE-L, significantly improving initial drag response and tracking ability, thus greatly reducing the risk of losing fish or line breakage. It provides confidence even when facing unexpected large squid.

The all-around normal LT2500 model, usable throughout the season, offers high rigidity and powerful winding. The FC model 2500, designed for finesse fishing with 2.5 to 3.0 size egi, is optimized for shallow water and the fall season’s high catch rate. This model achieves significant weight reduction with a smaller body size, enhancing operability.

Lighter and stronger reels. The carbon hybrid resin developed for this purpose is ZION V (V = Versatile). By precisely controlling the amount of carbon used in the hybrid, we have achieved a high level of lightness that surpasses metal and strength that rivals metal, as well as versatility that allows it to be used in a wide range of reels. It inherits the essence of ZION, which can be said to be the MAX spec of carbon hybrid resin.


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.


The Mag Sealed principle is based on special magnetic oil, which has been developed by the NASA to transport fuel to the space ships based on the magnetic principle. Such oil for reel production is not available in the market. It has to be manufactured under most difficult circumstances. The embedded ferric oxide, which is necessary for the magnetic field, has a diameter of 1/100.000mm.
The molecules in this new "metal oil" are capable of changing. If they are exposed to a magnetic field, they change their shape and the oil forms a fluid seal.
Such a seal, based on the principle of liquid magnetic oil produces nearly no friction, isolates perfectly and prevents even penetration of dust particles.
The big challenge for the DAIWA engineers was the development of a reel, which is designed for the principle of the magnetic oil to generate a kind of liquid membrane that prevents water penetration.
The Mag Sealed design is based on the purpose to keep water away from a spinning reel. First of all for sea anglers this is an amazing idea - since delivers a longer life span; no corrosion and better, pro longed function. If salt water penetrates the reel and dries, it crystallizes, corrodes the gearing and affects the ball bearings. Mag Sealed halts the travel of salt particles.
