Just when the angling world thought big reels couldn't get any lighter the Daiwa development team in Japan pushed the boundaries of design and materials to come up with the Daiwa Basiair.
The sublime and beautiful Daiwa Basiair weighs only 445 grams and has given up nothing in performance to achieve it. The Daiwa Basiair combines AirMetal magnesium alloy and ultra light Zaion. The Daiwa Basiair truly takes feel to another level.
With a 45mm spool profile the Daiwa Basiair produces supreme casting and the retrieve of 4.1:1 still brings home a shade under 90cm of line with one turn. Described by some as 'pure architecture' the distinct shape and design carry a futuristic sculpture and really signal that the future of reels has begun.
