Want a Cheap Certate – Grab a Daiwa Infinity Q

Daiwa Infinity QI’ve done this a couple of times and a mate, once more. So now’s the time to share the secret in getting hold of the superb Daiwa Certate dirt cheap.

Search eBay for a Daiwa Certate – especially in the UK – and if you didn’t already know they were high price items, you might get a shock. We’re certainly talking upwards of £200 plus postage for these spinning reels. The price is justified. Arguably the Certate is Daiwa’s answer to the Shimano Stella. In fact some anglers prefer the finesse of the Certate over the Stella.

In time the Daiwa Certate has earned a following. In an auction market such as eBay that generally means fair pricing and Continue reading “Want a Cheap Certate – Grab a Daiwa Infinity Q”

New Daiwa Saltiga 3500 & 4000 Released

New Daiwa Saltiga 4000As far as light tackle fishing news goes, this is right up there… Daiwa have released the new Saltiga spinning reels in smaller sizes, including a baby 3500. Happy days!

When Daiwa released the new Saltiga range of spinning reels back in the tail end of 2010, questions were rightly asked over what this meant for the excellent Daiwa Saltiga Game range. Well our questions (and prayers) have been answered in the form of the new 3500 & 4000 sized reels launched recently in Japan. Unlike the Saltiga Game range, the new reels have kept the aesthetic appearance of their big brothers.

New features such as the lightweight Zaion Continue reading “New Daiwa Saltiga 3500 & 4000 Released”
