Zillion HD

For the past decade the Zillion baitcaster has established a reputation for strength and reliability. Setting the standard in strength, design and performance the Zillion has blazed the path for baitcaster excellence, and the release of the new Zillion HD shows this trait is stronger than ever.

Inspired by the reputation of its past the new Zillion HD sets the direction for the future and embraces Daiwa’s newest and most innovative design technologies, Magseal, TWS and Air Rotation to set a new agenda in baitcaster brilliance.

Headlining the Zillion’s impressive design and performance is one of Daiwa’s greatest innovations, Real Four. With Real Engine, Real Control, Real Endurance, and Real Custom combining to deliver unmatched precision, power and performance. An ultra strong, alumiminim frame sees the Zillion sit assuredly and balanced in the angler’s hand, and palms beautifully for ultimate comfort and control.

Zillion HD continues Daiwa’s innovation trend by featuring Mag Seal technology. Delivering unrivalled protection in spin reels since it was first introduced in 2010, Mag Seal is a revolutionary system that involves magnetized oil that forms a seal, reducing dust, water and salt intrusion. The later being a major limiting factor and the Achilles heel of saltwater baitcasters. Located on the pinion gear the result is increased protection and performance. Slamming the door shut on unwanted intruders, Mag Seal technology is baitcaster protection and design advancement like you’ve never before.

Daiwa’s advanced gear design, Digigear, delivers it’s tell tale precision, and combines with the new Air Rotation system to create a reel that has few peers when it comes to smoothness. Under load the Zillion HD’s powerful high speed gear box allows for effortless cranking and instant high speed power to muscle bruisers from the snags.

The revolutionary T-Wing System unearths a new age in casting performance for the Zillion with its pivoting T-shaped line guide light years ahead of traditional line guide systems. TWS delivers unparalleled casting performance, reduces line noise and friction, and improves line control, reel stability and balance. Partnering TWS is the Zillion’s performance driven duraluminium spool, with its lighter, stronger, and faster design working in unison with TWS for ultimate casting ease and performance, for a new age in Zillion brilliance.

Casting control has never been more refined or effortless, with Daiwa’s legendary Magforce Z delivering ultimate control and precision. Magforce Z is seamless in design and flawless in performance for total casting control.

Giving you the power to take control is Daiwa’s UTD. Powerful, unyielding UTD gives you the power and poise to take control of whatever crosses your angling path. A new large clicking Zaion star drag puts this control in easy reach, with its super light, ergonomic design making it easier than ever to crank the power up when needed.

Ultimate cranking control is available in the new Zillion with a large 100mm Swept Handle bringing the balance point of the handle closer to the centre of the reel and combines with large, EVA knobs for unmatched cranking power, balance and control.

Heralding a new dawn in baitcaster design, the new Zillion HD uses the pedigree of its past with the innovation and technology of the future to deliver anglers a new age in performance, and a new age in excellence.
