Daiwa  GEKKABIJIN AIR 2003
GEKKABIJIN AIR 2003


Crimson moon shining suspiciously in the dark night. AIR model with the weight balance closely

Not to mention mag shields equipped everywhere, AIR performs light weight reduction ashamed by its name.
Eliminated the line stopper, succeeded in lighter weight than the air spool with a spool skirt which was thinly
thinned to the limit (about 10 g weight reduction compared with 14 moon beautiful 2004 spool).
Synergistic effect with ZAION air rotor can be expected by lightening the head, and operability is improved with
outstanding weight balance. We also line up extremely shallow 2002 sizes that will fit exactly the very fine ester lines,
and go the cutting edge of the light SW scene, which is increasingly demanding. Crescent-shaped
creative engine plate shining crimson proof of AIR.


DAIWA TECHNOLOGY

¡MAGSEALED
Daiwa's original waterproof and durable technology that shuts out the invasion of
substances such as water, salt and sand, which is the biggest factor of the decline in reel
performance, with the wall of magnetic oil and keeps the reel's rotation performance in its initial state Adopted for body and line roller. Furthermore, "Magshield ball bearing" which applied the technology to the ball bearing which is the essential part of the rotation
performance is mounted on both ends of the handle shaft. No matter how excellent rotation performance it is, it will be meaningless unless it lasts long. The advantage that the initial performance lasts for a long period of time is that the more you use it in the harsh Saltwater scene for Lille, the longer the longer you hold it, the stronger you will feel.
¡NEW ZAION made air rotor
Using the rigidity of ZAION (Zion), the rotor realized the extreme lightness by cutting off even more extravagance. When the parts such as the rotor and the steering wheel are reduced in weight, the inertia force at the time of rotation becomes small, and the resistance feeling when turning the steering wheel decreases. This makes it easier to sense the change in underwater resistance, resulting in the merit that changes in movement of Atari and
lure during retrieval are more easily discriminated. The air rotor also features not only lightness but also high strength. The arch structure of the air rotor distributes the load in a well-balanced manner, and can maintain high strength with less mass.
¡ATD (Finesse)
..In addition to the frictional force between the conventional washers, the effect starts smoothly due to the effect of the grease film (like an oil film) of the special grease, keeps working while automatically changing the effectiveness according to the pulling of the fish. Moreover, because it does not become a goulzulu, the fish is not taken the initiative. In light
SW scenes where 1.5 lb and 2 lb are becoming mainstream now, the adoption of ATD which is friendly to fine threads is an overwhelming advantage. By the appearance of this drag, it is easy to prevent the line break even in the schedule of the sudden rake and the ruler meval. Moreover, even unexpected mouth break of weak fish like horse mackerel can be kept to a minimum. It is a level that is not an exaggeration to say that "Finesse drag of the highest in Daiwa history" is its capability.
¡ZAION (Zion) body
It is a carbon resin with carbon fiber woven into high density, and if it is in the same weight ratio, the rigidity (flexural modulus) is not less than magnesium known as ultra light metal. Furthermore, being strong in "rust" because it is a carbon resin is a great merit that can not be imitated by metals. It is no exaggeration to say that it is just "a material born to become a reel". A small signal from underwater, which is felt because it boasts high rigidity while being lightweight. Its high sensitivity becomes a powerful weapon with light SW scene, which is increasingly becoming lighter and more sensitive to tackle.

The specifications details

Function, specifications Characteristic

Thin aluminum spool In order to lighten the spool even 1 g, we achieved weight saving not to be ashamed of the name of "AIR"
by scrupulously thinning it to the extent that it can not eliminate line stopper (instead spool band is
attached) and can not even blank (drill) .

Aluminum machine cut handle High rigidity machine cut handle giving a sense of stable winding up.

Machine cut Digi gear Daiwa's proprietary digital design technology and ultra-duralumin forging machine cut digi gear by high precision machine cutting process produces a smooth and powerful retrieve feeling.

Linear shaft The structure that supports the main shaft and the pinion gear independently eliminates the frictional resistance between them and reduces the power loss to the limit even during winding at high load.

ABS R A spool structure in which the line is released without trouble, and the flight distance extends. By making the
winding surface inversely tapered with a large diameter, the line ahead of the spool is hard to be pushed out, the line trouble starting with the backlash drastically decreases. Large caliber spool also contributes to improve winding speed and drag performance. ABS R is designed exclusively for fluoro line.

Cross lap By adopting a cheese winding method with a large winding angle, a method of
winding up by crossing in order to prevent biting into the spool winding
part and deviation of the yarn. The reduction of line trouble is remarkable
especially when thin threads and PE line are used, and realizing comfortable
flight at the same time.

Air bail Bale shape which drastically reduces trouble of thread entanglement by
sending thread so as to flow to the line roller. Furthermore, by making it
hollow structure, we realized a great increase in strength without changing weight.

Twistbuster II (R) Structure which greatly eliminated yarn sticking caused by roller rotation
which was said to be fate of spinning reel by rolling thread by tapering
line roller

Line rollerBB
(2BB)
By installing ball bearings in the line roller part, it contributes to
further improvement of feeling of rotation and reduction of yarn strain.

Rotor brakes Mechanism to prevent the unexpected veil return marks
by a steering wheel working by the shock in the cast
by braking the turn of the rotor at the time of veil opening.

Real Infinite Stopper Mechanism that eliminates backlash of the rotor handle by the special
one-way clutch inside the body, enabling tight and highly accurate winding up.

Shower cleaning possible Can be washed with running water. (Maintenance according to the instruction
manual is required after cleaning)
