Australia’s demand for light tackle heavy duty spinning reels is like no other, and Daiwa has redeveloped the Kix range of spinning reels to suit. Now featuring Airdrive Design, Kix’s rotor and bail arm have been redeveloped to reduce overall weight but importantly reduce the winding resistance, making the handle easier to turn. The Daiwa 23 Kix also features key Daiwa technologies like Magseal, to further protect the inner workings of the body. The Daiwa 23 Kix is designed and developed specifically for the Australian market, and perfectly harmonises with the requirements of modern Australian anglers.
Airdrive Design - Daiwa’s new Airdrive Design, a four pillar (Airdrive Rotor, Airdrive Bail, Airdrive Spool, and Airdrive Shaft) design concept that reduces weight, and enhances rotational smoothness and responsiveness to create a reel that is next level in both form and function.
MagSealed Body - Ultimate protection is delivered to the engine room of the reel with a magnetised oil seal located on the main shaft of the reel’s rotor shutting the door to the elements and unwanted intruders. Dust, water, and salt intrusion into the inner workings of a reel are a thing of the past with MagSeal.
Metal Alloy Body - Rock solid in strength and performance, alloy is tailor made for Australian conditions and allows the reel to be light, strong, supremely rigid and highly corrosion resistant.
Tough Digigear - A further evolution of its predecessor Digigear, Tough Digigear is our brand new digitally designed, machine cut gearing system that ensures ultimate gear precision, rotational smoothness, and strength.
ABS Loncast - Compared to conventional spools, the LC-ABS has been shown to increase the average flight distance by approx. 5% due to its reduced weight and modified shape.
ATD - Daiwa’s Automatic Tournament Drag uses an improved drag grease that exhibits a low viscosity at rest, yet becomes more viscous immediately after drag start up. This reduces initial drag start-up inertia and combined with the structural changes of the ATD Drag System results in a smoother drag from the initial hook up.
CRBB's - Lasting 12 times longer than standard stainless steel bearings Daiwa’s CRBBs feature specially treated stainless steel, and a protective shield on the bearing race that seals out sand, fine grit, salt crystals and other abrasives. The result is a longer lasting bearing that’s protected from the corrosive elements that destroy traditional bearings.
EVA Knob - Delivered enhanced angler comfort and contact, EVA knobs provide optimum contact in wet conditions.
