Crossbeat – Baitcaster Rods

With looks to kill and designs to thrill the Crossbeat baitcaster series is unwavering in performance, unflinching in battle, and untouchable in value as the great new avenger of budget baitcaster supremacy.

Stylish yet reserved in looks its true nature lies hidden beneath its mask with a wild and willful temperament delivering both the power and poise to dominate and intimidate.

The  super powers begin with Daiwa’s ground breaking HVF blank technology. HVF (High Volume Fibre) combines precise resin control with unidirectional graphite fiber to produce a blank with maximum graphite density, making it incredibly sensitive, light and responsive.

Crisp and lightweight in the hand, yet powerful and responsive under load to put the power and fight in your hands, the  baitcaster series delivers advanced blank design and unrivalled rod performance at a truly affordable price.

Power and control has never been easier to get your hands on than with ergonomically designed EVA grips, with their low profile tapered profile allowing the rod to blend seamlessly into your hand, while their lightweight design ensures rod weight is kept to a minimum to maximize rod balance and performance.

Daiwa’s famous Surround Hold reel seats provide the ultimate connection between rod and reel, with its low profile vice-like connection delivering ultimate strength and in-hand comfort. Blending seamlessly with the EVA grips they deliver  the ergonomics, connection and style generally seen on more exclusive high-end rods.

Fuji’s ultra light, ultra sensitive O guides allow the full performance benefits of the HVF blank to be realized with their advanced design and heightened performance qualities enhancing the connection between the angler and the rod.

Offering modern design, advanced performance, and contemporary looks the Crossbeat baitcaster series is budget baitcasters brilliance at its very best. With rod lengths, weights and power to suit a host of different species and applications this is the baitcaster series that is as suited to the freshwater lakes of the south as it is to the rainforest streams and estuaries of the north.
