Truly living up to the name of AIRITY, the newest model is officially Daiwa’s lightest ever traditional spinning reel. With the introduction of AIRDRIVE DESIGN for the first time, 23 AIRITY breaks the 150g barrier to deliver never before seen levels of refinement. AIRDRIVE DESIGN incorporates all four elements to deliver a reel which enables precision control from the angler.
AIRDRIVE ROTOR is the most noticeable difference in 23 AIRITY with the flowing lines and smooth design of the new rotor delivering lighter start-up inertia and fluid reeling even under heavy loads. AIRDRIVE BAIL is a one-piece tubular hollow bail arm which has evolved from Daiwa’s original AIR BAIL design. AIRDRIVE BAIL is lighter and thinner than previous models, further improving start-up inertia and to deliver truly refined reeling. AIRDRIVE SPOOL has also been installed and still incorporates Daiwa’s famous Longcast ABS spool lip, but is now lighter than before, reducing the force required from the oscilation system to move the spool up & down, which in turn results in a lower resistance when retrieving.
Finally, AIRDRIVE Shaft is hidden inside the MQ body and is double supported by special collars inside the pinion gear, this further reduces friction and minimises power loss through the drive train of the reel. Ensuring that all that effort you put in is transferred to line back on your spool in an intense fight. The MONOCOQUE (MQ) body remains from the previous model, crafted from a single piece of treated Magnesium, the MQ body of 23 AIRITY is incredibly light & supports a TOUGH DIGIGEAR drive system which is both forged and machined from a high-strength alloy to deliver smooth & reliable performance for years to come.
There is no doubt that 23 AIRITY is one of the most refined fishing reels DAIWA has ever produced, and is available in a range of sizes from 2000-5000 to suit a host of both freshwater, light-tackle & inshore fisheries throughout Australia.
