ICAST debut for new Daiwa saltwater baitcaster


Daiwa is introducing a new-sized baitcaster at next week’s ICAST. The COASTAL SV TW 150 is designed for light tackle inshore saltwater enthusiasts.

Small, compact and fitting in the palm of the hand, it has a deeper 150 size spool in a 100 size reel body.

The SV Spool is strong and capable of tolerating the increased pressures of braided line. The T-Wing System allows the line to pass freely, without friction, through the level wind’s eye on a long cast. The small reel is substantial and built around an aluminum frame and aluminum side plate. The innovative Zaion Star Drag is made of a ‘high density’ carbon strain material that is 20 per cent stronger and 50 per cent lighter than traditional nylon and aluminium. A 100mm swept handle makes hard cranking comfortable and natural.

Daiwa’s revolutionary T-Wing System addresses the issue of traditional line guide/level wind systems constricting line flow by delivering a T-shaped line guide that is larger, wider and less restrictive. TWS allows line to exit freely from the spool with minimal line angle and minimal friction, thereby reducing line noise and backlash and delivering more accurate and longer casts.
