Introducing the Mid-Class Lightweight Surfcasting Reel Featuring ZAION V

Key Features:

• ZAION V Material:
• First time in a surfcasting reel, ZAION V is used for the body, body cover, and rotor, achieving both strength and lightweight performance.

• LC Spool & Cross Wrap:
• Equipped with a 35mm stroke Long Cast (LC) spool for the first time.
• Cross Wrap technology prevents line dig-in by crisscrossing the line wrap, ensuring smooth and trouble-free line release during casting.
• Spool taper angle: 2°.

• Lightweight Handle Arm:
• Features an 85mm aluminum machine-cut lightweight handle arm.
• High rigidity machine-cut handle provides a stable winding experience.

• Interchangeable Handle Knob:
• Compatible with S-size knobs.

• 35mm Spool Compatibility:
• Compatible with spools from previous Daiwa 35mm stroke reels.
• Spool compatibility is maintained between dragless and QD models.
• Note: There is no compatibility between dragless and QD models.

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.


In addition to the weight reduction of the spool, the spool lip shape has been revised to achieve an increase in casting distance of approximately 5%. We hope you will experience the beautiful parabolic line drawn by the cast line.


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.
