Daiwa's Innovative T-Wing System
New from Daiwa is a unique, high-performance levelwind mechanism called the T-Wing System, promising improved casting performance.
Heart of the T-Wing system is a unique, T-shaped line guide aperture, designed to reduce casting friction, yet provide precise, level winding of line upon retrieve.
With ordinary levelwind reels, line coming off the spool ends is forced to bend at a sharp angle to pass through the line guide?s narrow aperture during a cast. The result is casting friction, especially noticeable when the line guide is parked to one side of the reel.
When casting with Daiwa?s new system, line flows freely through the wide, upper portion of the ?T? with minimal friction. Tests against some of Daiwa?s own top casting reels showed a distance increase exceeding 5 percent. That translates to over 10 percent more water coverage in a day?s fishing. Lure drop rate after splashdown was also improved by up to 12%.
Upon retrieve, line is channeled through the narrow, lower part of the ?T? for precise distribution onto the spool.
The T Wing System will be available on new T3 (MSRP $429.95) and T3 Ballistic baitcasting reels (MSRP $249.95) beginning in August 2011.
