Daiwa Surf Rods are definitely the complete package. When purchasing a surf rod, you must make sure that it has the ability to cast extremely long distances in order to get past the breaking surf, where most fish tend to be. Daiwa’s surf rods combine a powerful, fine-diameter HSD (High Structural Density) graphite blank with top quality Fuji Long Cast guides, yet still give you the sensitivity to detect subtle movements. These rods give jigs and poppers great movement. Daiwa is committed to innovation and quality; this company will stop at nothing to ensure that their products help the sport of fishing to advance.
The Daiwa Saltiga Interline Surf rods are a great choice whether you are fishing for redfish to blue fish. The rods themselves are made of Power Slim HVF Graphite and are separated into two or three pieces. The blank works without guides and the Hyper-Dry construction inside the rod enables you to cast lines longer distances and provides the strength required to reel in even the toughest fish. Spinning and casting reels are compatible with these rods and they will sit in the Fuji DPS reel seat. The 360° tip remains tangle free. All the Diawa Saltiga Interline rods have a limited lifetime warranty.
The Daiwa Emcast Surf series of fishing rods are broken down into two groups: casting and spinning rods. Each rod has its own features and are suitable for certain types of fishing. The spinning rods are great for catching fish like catfish, pike and bluefish, whereas the casting rods are suitable for catching heavier kinds of fish and using heavier lines and baits. The Daiwa Emcast Surf Rod’s blank is made of graphite and is both strong and sensitive. It is protected by X-Tube Blank Protection which keeps it from being scratched. The Long Cast Guide system enables a lengthy cast and the guides are lightweight, large and have aluminum oxide ring inserts. Stainless hooded reel seats round out these attractive and sensitive surf rods.
The Daiwa Saltiga Surf series consists of both casting and spinning rods. These rods range in length from 7’ to 15’ and therefore every fisherman will find the right one. Much attention was paid to detail and only high quality materials were used to make these rods. The blank is constructed from Power Slim HVF Graphite, the reel seat is from Fuji and there are adjustable balance weights which make it possible to individualize the rod to personal preferences. Another great feature found on these rods is the Fuji New Concept Alconite Guides. All models come with a limited lifetime warranty.
The Team Daiwa – S Surf Classics series of spinning rods are suitable for catching many types of fish, like salmon or sturgeon. One outstanding feature of these rods is the textured ferrule grip which is located at all separation points so the equipment can be taken down without any problems. The blank is very lightweight and made of HSD graphite. The grips are all high density Duracork and the Polyfluor coating on the rod protects it from UV damage. The guides are all large and made of aluminum oxide. There is also a Fuji DPS reel seat that is both stainless and hooded.
The Daiwa Beefstick Surf, Jetty & Big Cat series of fishing rods all have a very durable and strong blank that is made up of tubular fiberglass with a non-glare finish. There are both casting and spinning rods in this series and with them almost all kinds of standard game fish can be caught, including catfish, pike and even large surf species like striped bass. The heavy framed guides are made of ceramic and that makes them resistant to cutting. Other features of these surf rods include the EVA non-slip grip, Fuji reel seat, protective rubber butt cap, double thread wrap on the guides and the diamond wrap.
