Cast IZM BR 25A


Daiwa’s compact 25-size surf reel design continues evolving in 2015 with the introduction of a new “bite and run” system. Designed for free spooling and to battle the harsh elements of saltwater, the Cast’izm BR 25A continues Daiwa’s dominance in setting the standard for others to follow.

Packed with Daiwa’s most advanced technologies, the Cast’izm BR 25A is the first surf spin reel to our new BR Trigger plus its packed with other technological innovations like Magseal, Air Rotor and Zaion.

Daiwa’s BR Trigger (Bite ‘n’ Run) has been fully redesigned to fit within the compact body and still maintain the 25mm oscillation stroke design seen in our Surf Basia and Procargo reels. Clicked into free spool and the spool disengages allowing for fish to run with your bait, resistance free, and then with one turn of the handle it sets the hook. With our new system you will experience the crisp operation of the BR trigger and feel the solid engineering instantly.

Keeping it all in place is Zaion, this high-density carbon material, is strong and resists corrosion, far exceeding the strength of traditional reel body materials such as magnesium and alloy in strength per unit weight comparison. Being carbon it transmits vibration more efficiently and is highly resistant to corrosion, a must in the highly corrosive surf environment where salt, sand and corrosion are a constant presence.

A quality reel needs quality protection and there’s no better protection than Mag Seal protection. Mag Seal involves scientifically designed magnetized oil that forms an impenetrable seal that reduces dust, water and salt intrusion, and eliminates oil spray associated with traditional non-magnetized seals. Slamming the door shut on reel destroying elements Mag Seal delivers the Holy Grail for surf anglers, protection and performance like only Mag Seal can.

Light as air and as strong as steel the new Air Rotor delivers on all levels. Lighter, stronger and more balanced than previous rotor systems, Air Rotor features a Zaion made, precision engineered arch that provides exceptional line roller support and disperses pressure to the lower section of the rotor to reduce stressing and flexing.

Despite its compact size and lower gear ratio the Cast’izm BR 25A is quite a line-cranking machine. Thanks to the 5.3:1 gear ratio and over 200mm circumference of a filled spool the Cast’izm BR will crank up to 107cm per handle turn.

Rugged yet refined, and cleverly designed the new Cast’izm BR 25A is the modern surf reel for the modern surf angler.
