The long-awaited replacement to the Daiwa Tanacom Bull, the Daiwa 23 Seapower Electric Reels are now available and ready to dominate the deep. Fitted with the same Megatorque motor that features in the popular Seaborg reels, Seapower outputs approximately 1.3 times the power compared to a conventional motor design. The Megatorque delivers smooth start up and excellent durability, and is custom designed by Daiwa to emphasise torque over all else. Sporting the same redesigned frame as the Daiwa Tanacom, the motor is now positioned inside the spool. This enables a more direct drive system with a redesigned planetary gear-set featuring much thicker & stronger gears to deliver all that power efficiently to the spool. The Daiwa 23 Seapower Electric reels now give anglers more options than ever to explore the depths of our coastline, with some key upgrades from the Tanacom series the Daiwa 23 Seapower Electric reels are sure to be a hit with deep-drop anglers all over Australia.
Megatorque-Daiwa's unique custom motor that emphasizes torque, yet has a smooth start-up due to the brushed motor construction. Brushed motors unlike brushless offer instantaneous power output exactly what you need to pull fish off the bottom in deep water. Approximately 1.3 times the output power and speed compared to the conventional motor construction.
Aluminium Body -Lightweight and incredibly strong, aluminium allows strength and weightlessness to be achieved without the cost and corrosion issues of other metals.
Line Counter -There’s no need to guess how much line you’ve got out anymore with Daiwa’s Line Counter letting your know exactly. Dropping your back down to the right depth has never been easier.
Power Lever -This lever allows you to go from stop to start to full power with the flick of switch. It’s like stepping on the gas pedal to accelerate.
Dot LCD Display -Dot LCD display to enable clear view from a large range of agles and light conditions.
Metal Ball Knob -Providing maximum contact between handle knob and hand, ball knobs are designed for optimal rotation balance, rotation, and functionality.

Rod - Daiwa Seapower 66XXHST Bent Butt Swivel Tip Rod
The Daiwa 22 Seapower 66XXHST PE 8-12 Deep Drop Rod sports a blank constructed from Daiwa’s Glatech material, a combination of a carbon core wrapped perpendicular to the rod blank and longitudinal single axis fibreglass material which gives the rod the desired soft and shock absorbing nature. Since almost all fights are conducted with the rod in a gunwale rod holder, a softer blank action is desirable for electric rods.
X45X Full Shield is also utilised to further enhance the torsional stiffness, a key component to dendoh rods which further reduces blank twist and eliminates power loss during the fight. Fuji Silicon Carbide SiC guides in a striking gold finish really set this rod out from the crowd. A heavy-duty ALPS swivelling roller tip controls the line from the tip preventing tangles and ensuring a perfect retrieve. A custom Daiwa bent butt has been designed which was about achieving the perfect length for the new Daiwa 22 Seapower 66XXHST PE 8-12 Deep Drop Rod.
Glatech Construction - is a unique process which lays linear fibreglass sheet over a carbon blank to give the shock-absorbing nature of a fibreglass blank without the increase in weight and loss in sensitivity.
Daiwa's custom bent butt - is made to suit the specific needs of Australian anglers.
ALPS Swivel Roller Tip - is made from aluminium, and highly durable and corrosion resistant, this is a tip designed for game fishing and features a highly polished finish and ball bearings for ultimate smoothness and roller function.
Fuji SiC Silicone Carbide Ring - has been the gold standard of guide ring material for over 20 years. Super hard, light, and highly polished and smooth, SiC guides are an excellent dissipater of heat, making them ideal for light drags and/or big fish.
Fuji Stainless Steel Frames - are light, strong, and highly corrosion resistant. Fuji stainless steel guides are tailor-made for Australia's harsh conditions.
X45X Full Shield Technology - is 25% more efficient than standard X45 technology. With increased torsional stiffness, blanks armed with X45X resist blank twist during casting & jigging. This characteristic prevents the blank from losing stored energy during the cast, ensuring that every bit of force you put into your cast, is transferred through the blank and ultimately to your chosen lure.

Line - Dog Tooth Fluidcast X8 8 Carrier 80lb Braid
This line is ideal for deep dropping due to the 8 strand braid paired with the teflon coating, which combine to provide a round, thin and super smooth braid. Not only does the Teflon coating provide extra smoothness to the line, it also has water repellent properties so that the line doesn't soak up too much water and become heavy and lose strength over time.
When deep dropping you need a smooth braid to minimise friction and heat generation in the line due to the heavy weights and fish being hauled up, which is exactly what the Dog Tooth Fluidcast X8 achieves.
