The next generation in rod development… Generation Black Travel Series. The main focus on the design and development of this series was to offer travelling anglers a wide range of actions to suit most light tackle species. The Travel versions are our finest multi piece rod actions that we have developed and will suit just about any light tackle species.
Using Daiwa’s HVF (High Volume Fibre) graphite combined with the blank actions based on our flagship rods like Steez and Black Label, we have created an amazing series of rods but at a fraction of the price. To compliment a brilliant blank, we have finished it with quality componentry, and GB rods feature some of the best available for this price range. Using Fuji’s lightweight Alconite guides so to keep the blanks action, these guides provide superior casting, unlimited line flow and line protection. By combining Fuji’s guide technology with Daiwa’s RR (reduced resistance) guide system, the guide placement and sizing allows for the superior casting qualities available from these blanks.
One of the most important parts of a rod is the reel seat, it needs to hold a reel firmly and be comfortable in your hand, GB rods feature Daiwa’s custom made Tournament Graphite reel seats. The spin models have a screw down foregrips with a removable spacer for smaller reels, EVA insert and grip section for the palm of your hand, while the baitcasters use Daiwa’s TDZ skeleton, it has a super low profile to keep the reel closer to the exposed blank to transfer vibration from the rod and a screw down foregrip. The reel seats are complimented with ultra hard and tough minimalist EVA grips that provide excellent grip and help reduce the weight dramatically.
The Travel series come with a shoulder sling bag for protection and ease of travel, finished off in an all matt black finish with minimal styling, the Generation Black series match perfectly with the Ballistic, Freams and Lexa range of spinning reels and baitcasters. Giving you tournament quality tackle without tournament quality pricing. If you ever wanted one travel series of rods to cover all light tackle lure fishing then the Generation Black Travel series is the series for you.
