Daiwa Sensor Sandstorm

By Daiwa

Lightweight surf rods have always been relegated to the higher end of market, but the introduction of the Sensor Sandstorm changes all that. The Sensor Sandstorm surf rod series are designed as a great all-round surf rod series, perfect for fishing from rocky shores, beaches or piers with lures or bait.

Performance starts with a great blank and the Sensor Sandstorm series is true to that philosophy, featuring many of Daiwa’s newest design and blank technologies to create a range that is equally refined, rugged and robust.

Built using Daiwa’s unique HVF (high volume fibre) carbon blank technology. This low resin, high strength, graphite blank is light, powerful and responsive, its regular action distributes the power evenly along the blank effortless casting and fish fighting power.

Adding to HVF is X45, this innovation delivers ultimate strength, power, and weightlessness, resulting in an ultra slim blank that eliminates blank twist and massively increases torque, and blank recoil. By using this design the blank returns to its straight form quickly, inturn delivering faster acceleration, and longer more responsive casting. By combining HVF “High Volume Fibre” carbon with X45 construction we have created a powerful lightweight blank with more responsiveness and sensitivity than ever before.

Comfort and control go hand in hand with low profile EVA grips fitting comfortably and effortlessly in the hand allowing you to reap the full benefits and power of the Sensor Wave’s performance driven blanks. A super light and strong Daiwa Seabass reel seat connects rod and reel with unflinching strength, and features stainless components for optimum corrosion resistance. The trend for quality components continues with Fuji M style O guides delivering tangle free angling and hassle free days on the water. These are lighter and stronger compared to ordinary guides

With a wide range of models the Sensor Sandstorm rods are the ideal choice for light line fishing from piers and in estuaries to heavy tackle spinning for pelagics off the headlands.
