Daiwa Warranty, Service and Maintenance Guideline

This guide is designed to be an aid for retailers and consumers to help clarify warranty, service and maintenance issues and FAQ’s regarding Daiwa Australia’s products.

Daiwa Australia, places a warranty card inside the box of all reels they import and distribute. If your reel does not contain one of these please contact the Daiwa service department immediately on 02 8644 8644 and we will send one to your place of purchase.

No reel will be considered for warranty repair or replacement without proof of purchase. Due to high instances of parallel and self importing, this guideline will be strictly adhered to.

The following are common complaints that will not be accepted for warranty purposes:

  • Worn or noisy ball bearings , drag issues i.e. ; worn, sticking etc
    (the above are classified as normal wear and tear)
  • Corrosion due to saltwater intrusion or neglect.
  • Internal or external damage due to neglect i.e. dropping or treading on a reel.
  • Internal or external damage due to a reel that has been disassembled and/or reassembled incorrectly.

We see many reels sent in for warranty claims that have suffered terribly from saltwater ingress or that have been pulled apart and reassembled incorrectly, resulting in damage that Daiwa Australia is in no way liable for. Our warranty covers manufacturing fault or flaw and over 90% of reels sent back to us for warranty do not fall into this category. Time wasted sorting through non- warrantable issues, directly affects and increases the wait time for your legitimate warranty claim clients.

Despite what some may think, no one knows our reels like we do and one washer or shim out of place or non OEM grease alerts us very quickly that the reel has been apart. We Always Know!!!

Many screws holding Daiwa reels and their components together are assembled using locking agents and should never ever be unscrewed or undone. If they are, damage or failure will only be a matter of time. Many main/drive gears and main shaft assemblies are examples of this.

Reel and Rod warranty can only be assessed by a qualified Daiwa service technician ,so please avoid passing judgement in favour of warranty on behalf of Daiwa Australia. Rather, use this guide to assess what is perhaps not a warranty claim, with your client and if still in doubt, please contact the Service department of Daiwa Australia.
