Introducing the Daiwa Free Swimmer BR. Daiwa’s Bite ‘N’ Run Surf Reel has arrived.
A return to the foray of Bite’N’Run reels with Daiwa’s new FREE SWIMMER BR. Bite’N’Run is a key technology for keen live or dead bait anglers allowing fish to take baits under minimal line tension to ensure a solid hookset is achieved.
Designed in collaboration between Daiwa USA, Daiwa Australia, Daiwa New Zealand and alongside Japanese engineers, Free Swimmer BR is a product five years in the making and a testament to Daiwa’s commitment to providing the best products to suit local conditions.
Angler’s will set the Bite’N’Run tension by adjusting the dial on the bottom of the reel, a wide range can be set to suit unweighted baits for finicky feeders such as whiting, up to quite strong settings suitable to live baiting large baits for hard-fighting predators like Kingfish & Mackeral.
Free Swimmer BR is built off a strong & sturdy carbon composite frame and Air Rotor. The internals have been carefully sealed through careful design and implementation of rubber seals to make Free Swimmer a true Saltwater Bite’N’Run reel. Careful attention to detail was paid throughout the design and prototype stages to make FREE SWIMMER BR capable of handling even the largest of New Zealand Kingfish & Snapper.
Free Swimmer BR is equipped with a host of regular Daiwa technologies including Air Rotor, ATD Drag, Tough Digigear & more to round out the best performing Bite’N’Run reel Daiwa has ever produced.
Bite N Run
Bite’N’Run is a key technology for keen live or dead bait anglers allowing fish to take baits under minimal line tension to ensure a solid hook set is achieved. The rear drag can be easily adjusted to provide optimum tension for each scenario.
ABS-Longcast | Long Cast Spool Technology
Compared to conventional spools, the LC-ABS has been shown to increase the average flight distance by approx. 5% due to its reduced weight and modified shape.
Air-Rotor | Lightweight Rotor
Lighter, stronger, and more balanced than any rotor system that’s come before, ‘Air Rotor’ delivers a great leap forward in rotor design and function and delivers the ultimate line roller support. Made from Zaion and featuring a redesigned arch that disperses pressure to the lower section of the rotor to reduce stressing and flexing, the design is further enhanced with a hollowed-out construction reducing weight, while increasing reel sensitivity and rotational balance.
ATD-Drag | Automatic Tournament Drag
Daiwa’s Automatic Tournament Drag uses an improved drag grease that exhibits a low viscosity at rest yet becomes more viscous immediately after drag start up. This reduces initial drag start-up inertia and combined with the structural changes of the ATD Drag System results in a smoother drag from the initial hook up.
EVA Knob | Round EVA Ball Knob
Delivered enhanced angler comfort and contact, EVA knobs provide optimum contact in wet conditions.
Tough Digigear | Larger Diameter – Bigger Teeth
A further evolution of its predecessor Digigear, Tough Digigear is our brand new digitally designed, machine cut gearing system that ensures ultimate gear precision, rotational smoothness, and strength.
Wirebail | Solid Wire Bail
Featured on entry level reels Wire Bail is light, strong, ultra-smooth and protrusion free, allowing line to slide effortless along the bail towards the line roller.
