ACCORDING to Daiwa, the new Aird baitcaster is the brand's most feature packed budget baitcaster ever.
Designed for ultimate line and fish control, the Aird features an open access spool and an ergonomic design that makes it one of the best baitcaster reels available for anglers new to baitcasting.
Daiwa's revolutionary Magforce magnetic cast control system is designed to deliver unrivalled line control while eliminating backlashing.
Aird also features Daiwa's original Swept Handle design to keep the reel more closely balanced to the rod, the combination of infinite anti-reverse and Dual Stopper to eliminate back play and set bone jarring strikes, UTD for ultimate drag smoothness and 9 solid stainless ball bearings for corrosion resistance.
Specs: Aird 100H - Gear ratio: 6.3:1 (71 cm); weight 220g Line capacity 4kg/12lb/110m, 14lb/90m.
