Sea fishing reel with ATD drag system
The DAIWA BG reels combine highest strainability and retrieving power with a silky-smooth running and premium design. The HardBodyZ reel body, made of aluminum, cares for a distortion-proof housing of the Digigear II gearing and optimal power transmission during the fight with the fish. Especially for the use of braided lines the ABS aluminum spool has been equipped with a central rubber ring, which completely prevents slipping of smooth braided lines under strain.
The BG reels are coated by a special “no paint” surface procedure, which completely eliminates the threat of chipping paint flakes also at heavy usage and at sea fishing.
The reel handle is firmly screwed into the reel body and is housed distortion proof and securely – perfect when heavy strains have to be transmitted at sea fishing.

Especially for our reels with oil barrier (Mag Sealed reels) mechanism we have developed a complete new Air Rotor.
So the enormous strains, which affect the rotor via the line and the line roller are better distributed. This causes less pressure on the single parts of the rotor.
The new rotor is 15% more light weighted than usual rotors of the same material - this reduces vibrations and enhances the rotational balance thanks to a very low centre of gravity.
Under the same strain, a conventional rotor is much more distorted than a Air Rotor, since here the strain is scattered over the whole rotor and not not concentrated to one point.
ANTI-BACKLASH SYSTEM (ABS® II)
The super system, that allows long casts and prevents line twist reliably. The running of the line from the spool usually occurs in different big loops depending on the reel's type. The best approach for preventing twist of the line is the generation of large windings.
DAIWA reels with ABS have spools, which are constructed in such way that they have a spool guide of very large diameter which is getting bigger towards to the spool's top. Thus there won't emerge any "cones" during winding this spool. Like this the line unwinds in big loops and very evenly from the spool and thus prevents the twisting of the line. Thanks to this system also longer casts are possible.
AUTOMATIC TOURNAMENT DRAG (ATD™)
The biggest issue with many drag systems is that they are not smooth at the beginning of the drag.
ATD or Automatic Tournament Drag is the newest introduction into DAIWA spinning reels. On one level ATD implements structural changes to the spool metal of the reel that provides greater support of the spool across the entire length of the main shaft.
This additional support of the spool reduces spool twist under load, promotes more even pressure on the drag washers and ultimately reduces "pulsing" of the drag when fighting the fish.
ATD - An other milestone of reel technology!
Machined, digitally developed gearing for maximum performance and endurance. Embeded in our HardBodyZ aluminum body, it transmits smoothly and efficiently the power of the handle directly to the rotor. Like this you can concentrate on fishing completely.
Our DAIWA engineers completely perfected the technology of milled gears with the Digigear II.
The shape and surface of the gear teeth enable the construction of gears with extraordinary smooth running, smallest resistance and extremely long lifespan.
We have the perfect metal alloy, we have a more precise processing and we have the knowledge for building precise, durable and very lightweight metal reels.
We call this technology the HardBodyZ Concept.
These reels have a technological advantage and they are not - compared to other synthetic reels - more expensive and in comparison to our traditional reels they have an economic price.
A weak point of many reels - the most reliable part of a DAIWA reel. Only high-quality parts, made of steel with smallest tolerances are used.
The Infinite Anti-Reverse System limits rearward backplay handle movement to almost zero for solid hooksets with less shock to the reel. No handle slap-back on hooksets and nor release of slack line.
DAIWA´s original advanced technology designed to reduce line twist. An essential reason for line twist has been eliminated with this smart idea.
The newest Twist Buster II (Patent-Nr. EP0876760B1) line roller not only minimises line twist, but also reduces further friction between the line and the roller.
