To be a part of Team Daiwa, is to be a part of greatness. 20 Team Daiwa BLACK epitomises everything that has made the Generation BLACK & TD BLACK before it so popular. The release of 20 Team Daiwa BLACK has made the best yet, with the adaptation of Daiwa’s X45 Cobrashield technology, the blanks of Team Daiwa BLACK have never been more sensitive or as refined.
X45 Cobrashield is the biggest advancement in this model and overtakes from BRAIDING-X in the previous iteration. Utilised in the bottom half of each rod blank, X45 Cobrashield increases torsional stiffness whilst reducing overall blank diameter and physical weight. The result of this is a rod that resists the twisting forces which are generated through casting and working lures, meaning every inch you put in, you get out twofold.
Rods featuring X45 Cobrashield are more responsive, cast further, and are more sensitive than rods without, and this is certainly no exception with 20 Team Daiwa BLACK. As has become a staple of Daiwa rods in this price point, HVF Nanoplus graphite is used. HVF or High Volume Fibre is a densely populated graphite sheet, and Nanoplus resin technology allows Daiwa engineers to precisely monitor and maintain precise resin control, allowing them to make not only a lighter weight rod blank, but a much stronger blank as well.
The advancements don’t stop there, moving to the handle section of 20 Team Daiwa BLACK is where many will notice the obvious changes from the previous model. A new Air Sensor reel seat is 40% lighter than a traditional reel seat design and helps maintain a balanced overall setup when paired with a correctly matched reel. An incorporated carbon handle piece not only looks the part, but transfers vibrations through to the angler’s hands on baitcaster models. On spinning models, it has been incorporated low down on the handle, to provide a secure grip on two-handed casts.
As has become a staple in the series before it, Fuji Alconite guides adorn the blank and provide trouble-free performance. Newly released LKW frames on baitcaster rods are lighter than the LN guides from previous versions.
A large part of what has made previous incarnations of Team Daiwa BLACK so popular has been the almost endless options to choose from and again this is no exception. With 37 models in the range consisting of 1, 2 & 3pc models in both spin & baitcast there is sure to be a Team Daiwa BLACK rod to suit your application and target species.
With returning favourites and a handful of exciting new actions the 20 Team Daiwa Black series has been overhauled and is ready for action.
AIR SENSOR REEL SEAT
Daiwa’s carbon fibre reel seat that’s minimal in weight, yet high in strength and sensitivity. Our ultimate high end, high performance reel seat.
Through the use of nano resin control technology in the blank construction process, Nanoplus allows for increased graphite density to be achieved within a graphite rod blank.
Bias construction within the ferrule allows it to flex with the rod, eliminating the weak, unbending spot caused by ordinary ferrules. The result of this revolutionary technology is a multi-piece blank that matches the performance of one-piece blanks in flex, power and responsiveness.
Developed to eliminate blank twist and increase power, X45 features a Bias Wrap Construction, left/right 45 degree carbon weave within the blank. X45 radically improves rod strength and durability by eliminating twist and preventing the blank from losing its round form. The elimination of this twist allows for a lighter, stronger and more powerful and sensitive rod.
