Brand new for the
saltwater angler is the Sealine Black Bite N’ Run. Two full sized (4500 & 5500
sizes) saltwater spinning reels built with an all aluminum frame, four corrosion
resistant CRBB bearings, DigigearTM, and a powerful multi-disc drag.
The spool on these reels are built with Daiwa’s Long-Cast design so they can be
used in the surf, but the reel also features a Bite N’ Run clutch making it all
the more versatile for saltwater anglers.

Daiwa branches into the
accessory market this year with a newly designed lure retriever called the Lure
Catcher. This device comes with a 45’ cord and storage reel and is built with
two flanged arms maximizing your chances for the chain to catch the hooks on
your snagged lure and assist you in pulling it out from whatever might be
ensnaring your favorite bait. The Lure Catcher is expected to retail for $19.95.

aftershocks of Daiwa’s 2006 introduction of their Steez and Zillion reels are
evident throughout ICAST 2008 as new, light weight, low profile reels are
introduced all over the show room floor with striking similarities to Daiwa’s
already established product. Yet, even with all that, the Daiwa rod offerings
remain somewhat unique in the Enthusiast marketplace and the trickle down has
finally started this year with the introduction of the more affordable, yet
highly stylized and feature laden Zillion and Fuego rods. No longer will we have
to wait until mid-October for these new products to hit store shelves as Daiwa
promises us, all these products and more will begin shipping before the end of
summer. Even with that brief of a wait, you can bet Daiwa fans are already
salivating for a taste of these exciting new products.
