New Tackle Warehouse Exclusives from Daiwa!

 

Date: 8/24/15
Tackle Type: Rods
Manufacturer: Daiwa
Reviewer: Cal








Introduction:
Daiwa USA has spent the last few years reinventing themselves. Formerly a company known for their high end product, they've worked hard to bring consumers more budget friendly tackle choices over the last few seasons. Case in point? The new Steez XT and Tatula XT rod lineups introduced at ICAST 2015. But As if that wasn't enough, the manufacturer has been working closely with e-tail giant, TackleWarehouse, to bring an entirely different budget friendly lineup to be sold exclusively at their store.

 


Introducing the TackleWarehouse Exclusive Daiwa DX-Bass lineup!

 

Daiwa DX-Bass : Daiwa's new, DX-Bass lineup features twelve (12) rods total with a breakdown of seven (7) general purpose casting, three (3) crank specific casting, and two (2) spinning rods. All rods in the lineup feature Fuji components and are built upon IM-7 blanks rolled with Daiwa's proprietary, high volume fiber (HVF) technology.

 


Instead of using their own proprietary seats ...

 


Daiwa uses the standard Fuji ECS seats for the DX-Bass casting rods.

 

Almost as much as any other Japanese fishing tackle manufacturer, Daiwa is known for the decorative aesthetic treatment of their fishing rods. The DX-Bass line is a departure from this approach presenting the angler a more conservative motif.

 


The guides are also from Fuji ...

 


... and feature aluminum oxide inserts.

 

There are no fancy or proprietary reel seats on the DX-Bass, but instead, a standard Fuji ACS reel seat on the casting rods and a similarly standard VSS seat on the spinning rods. The full rear grips (but no foregrip) are made of a good quality cork, but there is just the tiniest bit of bling at the butt end of the rod with a little decorative EVA band and metal winding check highlight.

Otherwise, the guides feature a standard aluminum oxide insert all made by Fuji, and are secured to the blank with stealth black thread wrap with silver highlights.


The blanks are built with IM-7 graphite and Daiwa's proprietary HVF technology.

There is just one little tiny hint of style with these rods right at the butt end. Otherwise, they are very conservative in appearance.
