Daiwa has always had a long history of innovation, in 2010, Daiwa pioneered the ground breaking technology- Magseal and Air Rotor, a combination that the new set the future standard for all Daiwa spinning reels. Its unparalleled engineering produced Daiwa’s flagship reels – Saltiga and Certate. Now Daiwa expand its innovation with the new Caldia.
Caldia is a new era for Daiwa, an era where the introduction of innovations where Magseal, Air Rotor and Zaion are now available in mid range reels.
Given the popularity of saltwater fishing, sealing a reel is a major goal. No leakage means no corrosion, longer life and better performance. If saltwater penetrates a reel and dries, it crystallizes, then erodes gears and bearings. In the past waterproof gaskets and “o rings’ prevented water intrusion, but they have the disadvantage of, producing friction and thus winding inertia.
In order to increase the durability of the reel, Daiwa had to make the waterproof structure an absolute priority. Through years of research and development, Daiwa found the solution – a membrane of magnetic oil which shuts out saltwater. By using magnetized oil in conjunction with magnets, the oil attaches itself to the metal surfaces to form a seal. Being magnetized this lubrication system avoids any friction, prevents dust or water intrusion, eliminating oil spray and improving reel life expectancy. We call it “Mag Seal”. You’ll call it magic and a transformation to long lasting, smooth rotary efficiency. Water intrusion is now a thing of the past.
Air Rotor is like no other, it is truly a revolution in sensitivity. The new rotor serves several functions. Firstly the main principle of the rotor is support the line roller, line is pulled instantaneously from the spool to the line roller creating stress and flexing to a concentrated section of the lower rotor. The new arch form disperses pressure to the entire lower entire section of the rotor, dramatically decreasing stress and flexing.
Sensitivity is one of the strongest attributes of Air Rotor. The rotor is made from a high sensitive resin that transmits vibration through the reel more efficiently than ever before. By hollowing out the rotor system, a lighter construction is created with more surface area, resulting in increased strength and greater transmission of vibration. With a decrease in weight the balance has been fine tuned, with a lower centre of gravity and precise centre of axis the rotor spins more efficiently with perfect balance. This decrease in weight, increased surface area and new resin construction transmits lure vibration to the angler like never before.
“Zaion” is simply explained as a high density carbon resin. Zaion is a new material, composed of carbon resin and long carbon fibres. This high density material is light, strong and resists corrosion, used in many of Daiwa’s reels, it far exceeds the strength of magnesium in strength per unit weight comparison. Zaion transmits vibration through the reel more efficiently than ever before and it is lighter and stronger than a conventional reel made with similar resins or graphite’s.
The new Caldia introduces new innovations and unparalleled designs, with the combination of Magseal, Air Rotor and Zaion making it one of the most sensitive technically advanced reels available. You will feel more connected to lures, detect more bites and fight fish with ease…. real design and real technological development for ‘reel sensitivity’.
