The famous Sol name re-enters the baitcaster realm with the release of the new golden child of the Daiwa range, the TD Sol II. Based on the game changing Tatula released in 2013, the Sol is fashion meets function in one of the most stylish reels to be added to the Daiwa range in many years.
While the Sol’s looks will grab your eye, it’s its performance that will capture your heart with the revolutionary T-Wing System (TWS), Air Rotation, Real Four, Digigear, Magforce Z and UTD of the Tatula combining with a host of new features including, corrosion resistant ball bearings (CRBB), Zaion star drag, duraluminium spool, and EVA knobs to make the Sol II a must-have for every baitcaster loving angler.
Refinement, smoothness and class epitomize the Sol II, and make it a reel to rival the performance of many current hi-end reels. Looking for technology, value and cutting edge performance then look no further than the new Sol II.
At the heart of the Sol II is the finest of Daiwa’s designs and innovations – Real Four.
Real Four – Real Engine, Real Control, Real Endurance, and Real Custom combine to make Sol II technically advanced and a dream to use. A precision designed solid aluminium frame and gear side plate delivers maximum power and unrivalled durability, while the ergonomically designed reel profile fits effortlessly in the palm of the hand.
The superior casting performance and ultimate casting ease of the Sol II all stem from Daiwa’s revolutionary T-Wing System (TWS). A great leap forward over traditional line guide systems; TWS delivers unparalleled casting performance and line control, a reduction in line noise and friction, and improved reel stability and balance.
Featuring a T-shaped line guide that pivots forward and back between the cast and retrieve position, TWS delivers simplicity and ease and now allows for efficient, easy casting every time, and with unrivaled distance and ease.
The Digigear II gear design combines with the new Air Rotation system to create a reel that is silky smooth and effortless on the crank, and flawless and refined when under load. At the core of Air Rotation is precision designed and machined gearing, an advancement in refinement that makes for buttery cranking and unrivalled smoothness. Air Rotation is as light as air and as smooth silk.
Corrosion is now a thing of the past with five corrosion resistant ball bearings (CRBB) and a series of corrosion resistant treated internal components joining forces to make the Sol II as rugged and corrosion resistant as it is striking and good looking.
Equally at home on a tropical estuary in the north as it on a freshwater lake in south the Sol II will be as smooth to use in five years as it is straight out of the box thanks to its unrivaled corrosion resistance and construction.
The ultimate casting control system is now at your finger tips with Daiwa’s legendary Magforce Z magnetic cast control system offering anglers of any skill-level a cast control system to maximize casting ease, distance and performance.
Featuring the best of both worlds, including old-fashioned mechanical braking and today’s advanced magnetic braking technology, Magforce Z easily adjusts to any skill level to control backlash and increase on-water performance. With Magforce Z, spool start up is faster and the spool spins longer making for easier and longer casts. The Sol II takes these Magforce Z attributes one-step further, with a twenty-increment magnetic cast control dial giving anglers more precision and control than ever before.
Your favourite line has a new place to call home with Sol II’s new duraluminium spool lighter, faster and stronger than traditional baitcaster spools. Its positives don’t end there with the spool one of the widest available in a baitcaster of its size.
The wider spool delivers improved castability due to line being able to more freely unwind from the spool. An attribute that is further enhanced by the T-Wing System with the wide “casting area” of the T-Wing allowing unrestricted line-flow from the spool.
Combine these features and the result is a reduction in line angle, line friction, and backlashes, and a significant improvement in overall casting performance. The all-new TD Sol II continues Daiwa’s dominance in casting excellence.
You’ll look like a star with the new Sol II thanks in part to its eye catching Zaion star drag, first made famous on the head turning T3 Air. Made from Daiwa’s lightest, strongest, sensitive and most corrosion resistant material, Zaion, drag adjustment is now right at your finger tips with the micro click adjustment star drag delivering precise drag control and adjustment.
Stopping power is equally at your finger tips with Daiwa’s UTD- Ultimate Tournament Drag giving you the muscle to stop the toughest and hardest pulling fish. With 6kg of drag on offer you’ll have the ability to stop just about any fish that swims, and do so with silky smooth stopping power.
Partnering the Zaion star drag and offering you all the cranking power you’ll ever need is a 90mm swept handle. Comfort and balance is essential for control and power when cranking and there’s no better way of achieving this than with Daiwa’s famous swept hand design.
The 90mm handle delivers maximum cranking power, while the swept handle brings the cranking handle closer to the reel’s centre of balance resulting in increased balance, power and comfort. Large EVA ball-shaped handle knobs offer added comfort and ultimate handle control. A must for when the weather gets wet and the fishing gets wild.
Loaded with features and with a spec sheet to impress including a 6.3:1 retrieve ratio, eight ball bearings, left and right hand models, 6kg of drag, and an impressive 225 gram body weight, the TD Sol II is a baitcaster to impress and the baitcaster that will be hard to forget.
Innovative design, advanced materials and technology, and exceptional strength combine to make the TD Sol II one of the most advanced and best-valued reels available. Economy meets elegance and excellence in the new TD Sol II.
