Daiwa Improves Legendary Spinning Reel

Daiwa DF18000 features structural and cosmetic facelift

Cypress, CA (March 31, 2022) – The all-new Daiwa DF18000 is an improvement on the heavy-action spinning reel popular with so many jetty and surf anglers as well as diehard catfish fishermen. It’s a no-nonsense workhorse designed to sink barbs and simply catch fish. “Anyone in the market looking for a great value priced reel for saltwater species or that require a large capacity of line, this reel is perfect coming in at $59.99,” says Senior Marketing Manager, Marc Mills. “

The Daiwa DF18000 features all-new cosmetics and a new rubber touch handle. It also features a stainless-steel main shaft, fully anodized corrosion resistant frame, and 3.4 gear ratio. The weight is close to 30-ounces, and it has a fairly high retrieve thanks to the diameter of the big spool. It holds a good deal of line with 39.4 inches per crank. Its monofilament capacity is an astounding 460 yards of 20-pound test and 320 yards of 30-pound test; for J-Braid, the spool holds 600 yards of 50-pound test and 450 yards of 65-pound test. Maximum drag is 33 pounds.

“We had incredibly good response with the predecessor to the reel and are proud to issue this new improvement, which I am sure will be popular with jetty and surf anglers as well as those anglers fishing big catfish; it’s sure to prove itself as a new staple with these type of anglers and with a very good performance to value ratio. It’s a no-frills workhorse that just gets the job done,” concludes Mills.

MSRP $59.99
