Tell Me About It
Designed in conjunction with Danny Fairbrass, the Daiwa Longbow features a crisp, powerful action that’s designed to give a strong mid-range casting performance, and responsive action when playing in large, hard-fighting fish. A 2.75lb test curves ensures this rod packs plenty of punch, while the Fuji DPS reel seat allows you to feel all the action travelling through that sleek, fast-taper profile.
Featuring a matte silk, low-glare finish, this Longbow rod has a custom build quality to it, that’s presented in striking yet understated style, giving you a rod that looks good, and performs better.
A shrink tube handle and metal finishings give this rod a classic look, whilst the X45 compression zone and Minima 4 guides ensure performance reliability and day-long comfort.
What Discipline Is It For?
Why Should I Buy It?
This is a rod that’s been designed with a near-exclusive focus on quality and performance, and which is virtually guaranteed to revolutionise your angling experience. If the action impresses Fairbrass, it’s got to be good, and this rod more than has the looks to back up any performance.
If you want to command attention from the moment you step onto the bank, and keep it for all the right reasons, then the Daiwa Longbow X45 DF is the coarse fishing rod for you.
What’s The Best Thing About It?
Custom-build quality with an action to match give this rod a must-buy edge, even before you realise who was involved in the extensive field trials that took place during every stage of this stylish rod’s design and development.
