New Era Fly Fishing

The Daiwa New Era fly reel is a world first and takes the interchangeable cartridge spool system to a whole new era…. Daiwa New Era.

The New Era is unique amongst the fly reels already available, as it’s the only interchangeable cartridge fully machined aluminium fly reel. The New Era comes with 2 spare colour coded cartridges and in a matter of mere seconds a new flyline can be changed. Simply by undoing a self retaining spool cap, the spool can be removed – no tools, no loose parts and definitely no time lost on the water! With each cartridge locking firmly in place, they are entirely reversible, made from precision machined aluminium and finished off with colour coded anodising. This is the fly reel system anglers have been waiting for.

Daiwa’s New Era fly reel is perfectly suited to all fly situations, its ultra smooth performance is powered by corrosion resistant components and stainless steel ball bearings. New Era will handle just about anything that swims from mountain stream trout to oceanic speedsters like tuna or sailfish, and to make sure your tippet won’t part its backed by one of the best drags available. The oversized disc drag system uses carbon washers for smooth powerful line release, and it is quickly adjusted by an ultra large knurled, easy grip dial.

For ultimate performance the reels can now be matched up with Daiwa’s new range of fly rods. Developed to match Daiwa’s highest rod performance these new rods will push the boundaries of power and accuracy.

By creating an all new taper and blending 40 with 30 tonne carbon we have created a fly rod that’s incredibly light, strong and powerful. But more importantly the sensitivity has to be felt to be believed, this allows the angler to feel the line, allowing for better timing and ease of casting.

Daiwa’s New Era fly reels introduce new innovations and unparalleled designs, it’s what you’ve come to expect from the world leader in fishing tackle.
