Daiwa Longbow DF Rods

If you’re an angler who has been watching on with envy whilst your bankside peers have been casting out with their Daiwa Infinity DFs, but you don’t have the budget to invest in a set of those rods, then this is the rod series for you. Designed by Korda’s Danny Fairbrass, the designer of the Infinity DF, this is a completely revamped version of Daiwa’s original Longbow. Rebranded to show Danny’s involvement, the new Longbow DF has both the look and the feel of the Infinity DF, only at half the price. This huge cost saving represents the fact that the recovery and response levels on this rod are slightly lower than on the Infinity, but Danny himself has admitted that he often struggles to tell the difference between the two!

The Daiwa Longbow DF Carp has been designed to be used on a number of the nation’s best loved day ticket carp fishing venues, including the likes of Linear and Brasenose One. Danny prides himself that this is a carp fishing rod that can handle all-round action in its stride. Easily able to cast PVA bags out 100 yards, this rod is ideal for use in all mid to long range fishing scenarios. It has a maximum casting weight of 4oz, which is more than enough for your average carp fishing session.

The Longbow DF is built on the same high quality blank as the original Longbow rod – Danny loved it some much he couldn’t bring himself to change it. Where Danny’s influence really has been felt is on the fixtures and the rod now features a Fuji DPS real seat and a 50mm butt ring. Fuji is the biggest name in rod fixture and fittings and it is a brand trusted by all the biggest names in the industry, thanks to its production of high quality and highly durable products. The guides on the rod are designed to protect your line, reducing the friction it experiences and allowing you to cast greater distances with increased accuracy. In fact, this rod offers exceptional precision when casting and it can handle mid and long range casts will equal skill. The reel seat holds your reel in the perfect position, locking it into place to ensure that you don’t experience any unnecessary lateral movement when you’re battling an aggressive fighting carp.

Not only this, but Danny has insisted that these rods boast the popular understated graphics that modern carp anglers love – giving this rod a bespoke build look. It is available in test curves between 2.75lb and 3.75lb, ensuring it can be used on any venue with full confidence and it is 12ft in length. The Korda team love it as much as Danny and Daiwa do – they are sure that you’ll love it too.
