Posted by Editor On February - 1 - 2011

Daiwa Morethan Branzino LBDJust spotted a planned addition to Daiwa's Morethan Branzino range of spinning reels on Japanese tackle site plat.co.jp - the Morethan Branzino 2508SH LBD.

I know what you're thinking, it's the current Morethan Branzino reel with an extra lever bolted on. Well I guess it is really. Yet another tackle innovation from Japan sees the Lever Brake Drag (LBD) form factor added to Morethan Branzino range. It's hard to see this being a popular reel outside of Japan, but I shouldn't knock what I  haven't tried.

I've been aware of this type of reel from Daiwa for a few years after seeing some shots in a Japanese catalogue but quite where the origin of this design lies, I don't know. I'm sure your conclusions on the use will be similar to my own - clearly the lever offers more Read the rest of this entry »

Daiwa 2011 | New Tackle – New Logo

Posted by Editor On November - 10 - 2010

New Daiwa Logo2011 is a big year for Daiwa UK. Daiwa has a new logo and a fresh new brand image that it wants to align in every country - we first saw the release of the new Daiwa logo in Australia in December 2009.
