Daiwa 2016 Plaiso LBD
Daiwa 2016 Plaiso LBD
The new 2016 Daiwa Plaiso encompasses various new additions to technology including the new ZAION body and a 10% decrease in spool weight to reduce the overall weight by 30g. Improved drag with the new ATD system and a highly rigid body for power and stability. The lightweight aluminum machine cut handle is durable and easy to use.
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, and 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, that reduces saltwater penetration. 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, reduces 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.
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 Zaion 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 Zaion construction transmits lure vibration to the angler like never before.
The drag system is called ATD or Automatic Tournament Drag, this is a new introduction into the Daiwa spinning reel range. The biggest issue with many drag systems is that they are not smooth at the beginning of the drag. ATD rectifies this issue. ATD works like this, at the beginning of a strike the drag starts smoothly, then increases to its pre-set drag rating in a fraction of a second, thus eliminating line breakage at the strike.
“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.
