Black Label V2 Airport Baitcaster

Daiwa’s cutting edge design and unmatched value Black Labels are undeniably impressive and undeniably Daiwa. Light, powerful and designed for ultimate strength, precision and performance this is the baitcaster series that will you have you dressed to impressed, ready for action and now ready for travel as Daiwa introduces the new Airport series.

Perfection begins from the blank, Daiwa’s HVF graphite is the foundation for this impressive blank range.  HVF combines precise resin control with unidirectional graphite fibre to produce a blank with maximum graphite density. Light, responsive, and crisp in action, Black Label blank performance is further enhanced courtesy of X45, 3DX and Bias Wrap Construction blank technologies.

Two of Daiwa’s premier blank wrapping technologies, X45 and Bias Wrap Construction, work seamlessly together to improve rod performance, and eliminate blank twist and distortion to increases rod strength, function, and sensitivity. By eliminating twist and preventing the blank from losing its round form, X45 and Bias Wrap allows a lighter a small diameter blank to be made, and lighter more dynamic rod to be created.

3DX continues the Black Label’s advanced blank design with its three-dimensional woven process adding support to the lower power section of the rod. By knitting densely packed carbon fibres in 3 directions to create a six wrap rectangular weave, the power is distributed evenly in all directions, allowing the blank to maintain its form when loaded.

This process increases the power and eliminates blank twist and collapse, and allows the rod’s power to be located at the lower section of the blank for maximum power and a reduction in angler fatigue.
