DAIWA 17 GEKKABIJIN EX 1003C SPIN REEL

Generation Black features Magseal for the prevention of foreign matter entering the reel. By using magnetized oil and magnets, a seal is created on metal surfaces. Being magnetized this lubrication system avoids any friction, reduces dust or water intrusion, eliminating oil spray and improving reel life expectancy
The corrosion resistant Zaion body is incredibly lightweight, infact it’s stronger and lighter than magnesium or alloy. This precision engineering supports the Digigear II drive system that produces smoother rotary efficiency and increased cranking power.
Air Rotor is a revolution in sensitivity. The main principle of the rotor is to support the line roller. When line is pulled instantaneously from the spool to the line roller it creates stress and flexing which is concentrated to the lower section of the rotor. To prevent this, the rotor is made of super strong arch form of the rotor disperses pressure to the entire lower entire section of the rotor, dramatically decreasing stress and flexing.

For total drag control Generation Black utilizes ATD or Automatic Tournament Drag. The biggest issue with many drag systems is that they are not smooth at the beginning of the drag. ATD rectifies this issue. The ATD drag starts smoothly, and then increases its pressure to its pre-set drag rating in a fraction of a second, thus eliminating line breakage at the strike.
The Generation Black is the perfect base for Daiwa’s Custom Project, its sleek stylish all black finish will accommodate every colour combination in the range.

Ultimate finesse, light as air is the best description for the new Gekkabijin EX.

 

The precision engineering supports high accuracy Digigear II drive and silent oscillation system to produce smoother rotary efficiency and increased cranking power like never before. The ABS II spool delivers trouble free casting and line management, while ATD or Automatic Tournament Drag is the newest introduction into Daiwa spinning reels. On one level ATD implements structural changes to the spool metal of the reel that provides greater support of the spool across the entire length of the main shaft. This additional support of the spool reduces spool twist under load, promotes more even wear of the drag washers and ultimately reduces “pulsing” of the drag when fighting the fish.

 

The second aspect of ATD, is an improved drag grease that exhibits a low viscosity at rest, yet becomes more viscous immediately after drag start up. This reduces initial drag startup inertia and combined with the structural changes of the ATD Drag System results in a smoother drag from the initial hook up.

 

Given the popularity of saltwater fishing, reducing water penetration into the reel is a major goal to minimize corrosion and promote longer life and better performance. If saltwater infiltrates a reel and dries, it crystallizes, and then erodes gears and bearings. Through years of research and development, Daiwa found the solution – a membrane of magnetic oil, in conjunction with magnets between the body and the rotor of the reel, which greatly reduces the penetration of water inside the body via the main shaft. Being magnetized this lubrication system avoids any friction, reduces dust intrusion, eliminates oil spray and improves reel life expectancy.

 

Not content with Magsealing the rotor/anti-reverse system, Daiwa introduces fully contained Magsealed bearing in the line roller system to attenuate water intrusion, maintain rotation smoothness (reducing line twist) and increase part longevity. The line roller bearings are the first part on the reel to contact saltwater. They are one of the hardest wearing parts in a reel, and are constantly working. The pressure of the line, continual water and salt impregnation destroys roller bearings quickly. Introduced to spinning reels over 20 years ago, line roller bearings have now reached the pinnacle of evolution with the addition of the Magsealed Line Roller.

 

The body is made of “Zaion”, a high-density carbon resin. This high-density material is light, strong, sensitive and resists corrosion.

The hollowed-out construction of the Air Rotor enhances reel sensitivity and the transmission of vibration, whilst reduced weight, a lower centre of gravity and precise centre of axis allows the rotor to spin with perfect balance, transmitting vibration through the Zaion Body with greater efficiency.

 

Gekkabijin EX is one of the lightest finesse reels available.
