The Daiwa's Air Guide System

Dawia have been and always will be a very strong brand with good quality products, but new entrants to the market do pose a threat to market share.

You will find life reviews, where you maybe run a comp to choose an angler from each discipline give them your daiwa gear and film them on a session or two and get them to give an honest review on said gear. Its good/bad points because let's be honest no manufacturers gear is flawless - people would trust this more than a sponsored angler reviewing the gear there paid to promote.

In the case of lure fishing, it really is truly global and anglers are hungry for more and more information.

This should be blended with 'how to' type tutorials. As an example, Daiwa's new Air Guide System is a fantastic innovation, but few no why. Explaining what it is, why, and then 'how to' get the best out of it has to be the perfect scenario.

Daiwa branching

You can to see Daiwa branching out more towards predator fishing, showing techniques and tackle in all disciplines from lures, spinning, and bait fishing.

But,It's hard to define as I love and actively fish for predators, carp and coarse species alike, but if I have to choose one then it would be predator fishing.

Lure fishing

In the case of lure fishing, it really is truly global and anglers are hungry for more and more information. An in depth revue about using baits and the best application of said baits. For instance using a particle baits in a baiting situation either as a pva or spod how much and whats sort of mix. carp

Sea fishing

You will find the Useful tips for servicing your diawa multiplier's ie which oils how often does and don'ts bearing upgrades and where best to purchase these bits.Now things have changed considerably since then it's good to see the company still producing awesome match products.

See more sea fishing - tackle reviews of sea fishing gear, i do kayak angling in both fresh and salt from minnow to shark and skate, this part of the industry has been around for a few years now but still seems highly neglected by most tackle companies.

Tackle testing & Technical data

Here You can find tackle testing,but of gear that we CAN afford. Not flagship £1000 reels or £750 rods. You can see more on the bank shots of the tackle, etc in use with an honest review from the angler using it.

Look at having seasons articles ie bait, tackle, tactics throughout the year, so now we could be looking at clothing, bivvys, bait and end tackle for the winter period. All the seasons bring different ways to look at fishing.

Daiwa's Air Guide System offers technical data about daiwa reels, what materials are used, how they are tested. Do they need to pass some extreme tests before are released - And not the most expensive ones here.

Daiwa videos

Here you can see videos of of products and what makes the product stand out from the rest/carp, match tips and tactics relevant to the time of year or weather, videos about feeder fishing competitions, professional and winner anglers interviews about fishing strategy and much more.

Daiwa's Air Guide System include Videos explaining the product and use of it aswell plus every now and again ask the people what they think of not just new products but products you still do. Real reviews from real people. More product info with pictures of Daiwa products in use in normal fishing situations.

Daiwa Custom colours

At the moment Daiwa are doing a range of red, twilight and black rear covers and these, as well as silver, are available in various options for the reel customisation.

The rods blanks only available in black, but they do have various colours in some of the additional parts such as the butt cap, trim rings and thread wrapping. The colours for some of these parts include red, blue, silver, black and gunsmoke.


the already hugely popular Infinity DF rods. These carried what was at the time of launch an extremely high price tag, but it didn't stop them selling brilliantly well and, for a second successive year, winning our Tackle Awards category of' DAIWA Best Rod.

By relative to budget that if you can afford them then they might just be worth it. The tests have been extremely impressive and I can cast the 12ft 3.25lb version about the same distance as my current DF 12ft 3.75lb rods. That could be as much to do with your ability to fully compress the carbon but, even so, the Basia DF does feel a tad stiffer than other equivalent test curves.

The most obvious difference between this and its predecessor is the slimmer blank - the only criticism about the Infinity DF was the blank diameter, which was not always in keeping with the modern trend for slimmer wands. Slimness often comes at a cost, in that thicker walls are required in the blank to maintain strength. Sadly, this adds weight, but it doesn't seem to be the case with the Basia DF.

The stated science behind the slimmer blank is something that Daiwa terms as: Low-resin fibre armoured with layers of Bias carbon. The tech-heads out there might know what that means, but in reality it results in a much stronger blank for its diameter and this is immediately evident. It's supremely well balanced daiwa carp rod and the tip recovery after even the biggest casts is nothing short of sublime. Fixtures, in the way of rings, reel seat and handle, are of the absolute highest quality and the Basia DF also looks fabulous.

Cosmetically, the finish is a more natural carbon, as opposed to any glossy or 'blingy' wrap finish, and it looks great ,not a priority, but still a factor, especially for the fashion-conscious angler who is likely to be buying these.

First impressions, then, of the Basia DF are mightily impressive, whatever the price, and if you have the money to be perusing this bespoke market then you would do well to check them out.
