Daiwa Dark Water Rods

When anglers head out onto the saltwater lying off the East Coast of the U.S., their needs vary, partly due to geography, partly due to the unknown nature of what they might catch. Such variety from New England through the Mid-Atlantic States and down the eastern coastline of Florida is why Daiwa USA field marketing manager Mark Mills had a total of 21 new rods in the company’s Dark Water rod series to show off to Florida Sportsman executive editor Jeff Weakley as the virtual version of ICAST 2020 got underway. From barracuda to wahoo to kingfish to sailfish and beyond, these new Daiwa saltwater rods rely on HVG technology (that makes them 50% lighter), soft tips to protect leaders as big fish make strong runs, and strong backbones to help anglers crank up hard-fighting species from below. With a 5-year warranty for the rod blank and its components, these Dark Water rods belong in any Eastern Seaboard boat heading out for day on the big blue waters of the Atlantic. They look good, they’re lightweight and durable, and they help get win the toughest saltwater fights on the ocean blue. But what else would you expect from Team Daiwa?
