Tackle giant, Daiwa, is launching a new sub-brand – N’ZON – to cater for the fast growing feeder fishing trend that is sweeping across Europe. The Japanese-based tackle icon will be revealing all at this week’s EFTTEX trade show (June 13 to 15).
The Daiwa product team has invested the last two years developing and refining a comprehensive range of rods, reels and tackle for match and pleasure anglers alike.
Leading with seven reel models, the LT concept forms the basis of six, offered in 5000 and 6000 sizes in two ranges. For really big work a single model built around a mini big pit 25mm spool is there to serve. All feature distance control line clips.
Across two ranges, over 30 rods from 9’ to 14’ have been designed, covering small, close range feeder work to big river specials that can launch up to 180g.
Organisation of kit and bait has been well considered with two luggage ranges that have seen ‘bags of thinking’ gone into them.
At the business end, a mix of terminal tackle and feeders for all styles has been developed to provide accurate bait placement. These include versions for conventional stillwater work at moderate or big distances to flat base designs that let you nail it to the bottom on a river.
Feeder goes BIG
The 25mm spool configuration, originally developed as a compact mini big pit, had already found its way into the hands of serious feeder anglers who were seeking more distance and power. This evolution has now been embraced by Daiwa reel designers and presents itself in the shape of the new TDR Distance 25QD.
Carrying the same livery of the renowned TDR range, this design brings a whole new feast of desirable features to that stable. The 25mm LC long cast spool can return a five per cent increase in distance.
SCW Slow Cross Wrap
EFTTEX will see an array of new Slow Cross Wrap (SCW) reels launched from Daiwa.
Led by the much anticipated new Basia in carp and surf editions, each come with a 45mm LC spool and shorter body than any predecessor.
Also embracing SCW are Emblem 45 Carp and Surf models as well as a conventional 35mm Emblem Spod reel.
