Cracking looking Reel there Harold and a good read, Space technology in Reels, Brilliant !Hi lads,
More news from the 2010 Daiwa Certate.
Very good point there about the self service issue.Looks promising - bit wary about the magnetic oil / grease ... sounds like a gimmick and could be an issue with self servicers?
Sadly have to agree, Mike Kennard and I have both spoken to Diawa Reps, About getting more of the japanese gear into the UK. And basically they just don't seemed to be bothered. That is inspite of repeatedly selling out of their lures in the summer-time. It is a shame as Diawa do make some great plugging gear. Rods, reels, lures, lines and even leaders etc.
Have to admit that I am thinking about a decent reel, and the old certate really impressed me. Hard question now, go for the old model that has proved how reliable it is, or go for the shiny new, but as yet unproven model??
I agree on this one,I have the "old" one (a 4000) and love it to bits. I'd love the new one too, we'll see, but I won't be giving up the old one in a hurry!
I would expect they've tested the new model thoroughly before making such claims. It's a bit more hi-tech than a brake pedal isn't it!
