2023 year model

EXIST SF is Daiwa's flagship compact spinning reel designed with the concept of Super Finesse.
It pushes beyond traditional finesse fishing, offering precise control and exceptional maneuverability.

While maintaining fundamental performance features such as Air Drive Design and Full Metal Monocoque Body, EXIST SF has been fine-tuned to cater specifically to bass, trout, and light saltwater fishing. It prioritizes compactness and lightweight design, sacrificing some durability and waterproofing.

With its exceptional casting performance and delicate handling, EXIST SF promises to awaken anglers to a new level of fishing experience.

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.


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


To withstand the harsh environment, the reel needs a strong heart to support it. Tough Digi Gear" keeps smooth rotation longer. The synergistic effect with Mag-Shield refines durability.
