Product Description


Daiwa Cast'izm 25 QDA Reel

Daiwa is world famous for its constant innovation. The brand is exceptionally driven to do better and a result of that is that it is always bringing out updated technologies and new designs that are set to change the face angling. This latest Cast’izm 25 QDA does just that and it is a real revelation in the big pit reel industry. Whether you are a member of the avid carp fishing community or you’re a surf caster from the sea fishing world, you’ll recognise the importance of a having a big pit reel. Big pits are essential for all distance casting as they are the only reels that are not only large enough to hold the kind of line required for distance casting but also powerful enough to retrieve the huge length of line with a monster fish on the end of it. However, although their size is often their biggest asset, in many respects, it is also their biggest hindrance. Bulky and often heavy, big pits are not only hard to transport in most standard luggage set ups but they are also awkward to balance properly on your rod and can feel like they are weighing your arm down. This is where Daiwa steps in.

The Japanese brand has looked as the surf casters on its shores and has noticed a new ‘compact’ approach to big pit fishing. The team went back to the Daiwa drawing board to try to create a reel which perfectly complemented this new ethos: the Cast’izm 25 QDA is the result of this intensive work. In many ways, this is a design breakthrough in spool geometry. The reel utilises a 25mm stroke with a 65mm spool diameter and 66mm spool skirt – unusual combinations which work perfectly together in order to give you a reel that offers flawless distance casting performance whilst boasting a significantly smaller spool than traditional big pit casting reels. This is where the name Cast’izm comes from and reels fitted with a Cast’izm spool have been known to match the power of a Basia – a feat that was previously considered impossible. This shorter spool allows the body of the reel to be much shorter too, allowing for a more compact big pit setup without any loss in performance. This combines the benefits of a standard compact setup with the casting potential of a classic big pit – giving you the very best of both worlds for the angler who demands uncompromising performance for all their gear. The Cast’izm is truly a revolutionary concept which, when combined with Digigear II digital gearing technology, enables the modest ratio of 4.7:1 to be able to retrieve an incredible 96cm of line.

This incredible concept is paired with a number of Daiwa’s other out-of-this-world technologies. For example, the entire reel is Mag Sealed – a process which was designed by the team at NASA when trying to find a leak-free way of transporting liquids into outer space. They discovered that magnetically engineered oil provided a completely leak free seal for almost any container. For fishing, however, the benefits of Mag Seal go much further. It is a friction-free sealant solution, enabling Daiwa to use it in the rotational elements of the reel – preventing grit and grime from entering the reel at any point. The reel also boasts Daiwa’s famous Quick Drag (QD) technology. This allows you to engage the reel fight instantaneously, with only the slightest shift of the front drag dial. QD gives you complete control over your capture. Other technologies at work in the reel include TwistBuster, which allows you to fish with thin monofilament or braided mainlines with confidence, and an HIP line clip, which ensures that you can cast out with accuracy time after time whilst also ensuring that your line is completely undamaged.
