Daiwa Air Edge 802HS
Light and Sharp… that’s the easiest way to describe Daiwa’s latest rod creation. Air Edge is a result of years of research and development, the time taken to create our ultimate rod series combining high-end blank innovation, design and components to release a rod range that delivers ultimate performance yet incredible value for money.
The secret to Air Edge is Daiwa’s carbon design- HVF (high volume fibre), compared to conventional carbon material. The HVF carbon fibres are laid longitudinally with minimal resin use, then rolled at extremely high temperatures and pressure to produce an exceptionally light but super strong blank. By increasing the fibre quantity and massively decreasing the resin quantity it has created increase muscle in a slimmer profile blank, thus resulting in an even stronger, leaner, lighter, sharper rod than ever before. These blanks are incredibly fast and “tippy” but fold away under pressure in an even arch to displace load through the whole blank for maximum fighting power.
Complimenting this great design is Fuji’s highest quality stainless Hardloy guides that deliver superb tangle free casting performance and dissipate heat efficiently eliminating line wear. The customized Fuji VSS/TCS reel seats are painted then baked with a rich metallic flake black paint plus the addition of custom manufactured alloy componentry compliments this attractive and practical reel seat. For ultimate comfort and sensitivity Air Edge uses high quality EVA grips.
There is a huge range of models that will suit all light tackle fishing across Australia, from luring barramundi in the north to bait fishing for finicky whiting in the south. Air Edge sets a new standard in performance for this price point and is proof of Daiwa’s commitment to the highest quality and design innovation.
