Vadel

A new standard in light tackle shore game excellence, Vadel delivers anglers one of the most durable and reliable light tackle  shoregame reels for some time in a range of sizes and gear ratios.

Light, powerful, and eye catching in its strong metallic cosmetic its at home shore casting and jigging with its strength and reliability coming from the utilisation of many of the design features of its bigger brothers, Saltiga and Catalina.

Designed to excel and built to perform Vadel integrates many of Daiwa’s most innovative designs and technologies including Mag Seal, Air Rotor and Super Metal, and blends them with proven designs and features to create a reel that has few peers when it comes to light game spin reel excellence.

Heavily refined and meticulosy designed Vadel will allow you to feel more connected to your lures, detect more bites, and fight fish with ultimate ease.

The Vadel’s  design and performance pedigree begins with Daiwa’s innovative Real Four technology, with the combination of Real Engine, Real Control, Real Endurance and Real Custom combining for unmatched strength, refinement and performance.

The Vadel’s super strong, corrosion resistant, Super Metal body houses Daiwa’s most advanced gear system available, Digigear II, with the performance inspired gearing system featuring a high-precision cutting technique that achieves perfect gear meshing and ultra smooth performance. Made from super strong, corrosion resistant alloy, it allows for lighter and stronger gears and flawless gear meshing and operation.

Taking gear stability, power and smoothness to another level is Daiwa’s Engine Plate technology, with the performance enhancing technology providing direct pressure either side of the bearings and gears of the main body to enable the perfect meshing of gears and improved gear performance.

Ultimate protection is provided via Daiwa’s ground breaking Mag Seal technology. A revolution in gear and bearing protection Mag Seal involves scientifically designed magnetized oil that forms a seal that reduces, dust, water and salt intrusion, and eliminates oil spray associated with traditional non-magnetized seals.

Closing the door on reel destroying elements Mag Seal delivers unprecedented protection and improves the performance and extends the life of reels for today, tomorrow and long into the future.

Light as air and as strong as steel, Daiwa’s Air Rotor delivers balance, weightlessness and strength to the Vadel for ultimate reel balance and performance.

Lighter, stronger and more balanced and sensitive than any rotor system that’s come before, ‘Air Rotor’ features a precision engineered arch that provides exceptional line roller support and disperses pressure to the lower section of the rotor to reduce stressing and flexing.

Air Rotor is further enhanced with a hollowed out construction reducing weight, while increasing reel sensitivity and the transmission of vibration. A reduction in weight improves rotational balance, while its lower centre of gravity and precise centre of axis allows the rotor to spin with perfect balance.

Strength, balance and lightness are all rich in abundance and generous in performance with Air Rotor.

Delivering ultimate control is a collection of Daiwa’s finest and most innovative line control technologies.

Daiwa’s famous ABS II spools leads the charge with the reverse taper spool enabling greater line control and increased casting distance. Unwanted line loops and tangles are a thing of the past, particular when using PE and braid lines, with the maximum use of a spool’s capacity now realized, along with unprecedented line control and friction reduction.

Twist Buster II and Air Bail join forces during the retrieve and feed line unencumbered and untangled onto the spooled, allowing for increased line pick-up and maximum casting distance.

Ultimate control and precision is in the angler’s hand with Daiwa’s Real Stopper and Instant Anti Reverse taking reel precision and control to another level, eliminating rearward handle back play to zero for increased sensitivity, solid hook setting and unmatched line control.

Silent Oscillation further enhances the reel’s whisper quiet and silky smooth operation, and delivers increased gear durability and function. Unrivalled in quietness and smoothness Silent Oscillation ensures ultimate gear performance, while at the same time minimizing weight and oscillation resistance.

Daiwa’s UTD (Ultimate Tournament Drag) delivers Vadel fingertip drag control and unrelenting stopping power to control the toughest and strongest fish going around. With silky smooth start up and 8kg of stopping power to rein in the hardest pulling fish Vadel will never see you under gunned in the heat of battle.

The Vadel’s large non-slip EVA ball knobs puts full cranking power in your hands with the XOS knob allowing to grab hold and take control when things really need to be cranked up.

Stunning in looks, design, and performance the Vadel spin reel range opens the door to a new age in light tackle durability and reliability.
