The Daiwa Grandwave rod series hits a new peak in design and performance in 2018. The Grandwave now features X45 BIAS Wrap technology through the entire blank with its cross directional wrapping method eliminating rod twist and distortion when under load.

The result is an ultra strong, lightweight blank with maximum function and power. Power and control is further enhanced with a new Winn Grip foregrip, providing optimum connection and control between angler and rod, while a new bent butt section makes the Grandwave more user friendly in and out of the rod holder and gimbal.

Due to the immense pressures placed on the rod when Dendoh fishing, the Grandwave series has been constructed from the strongest materials available, and these combined with Daiwa’s unrivalled designed technologies have given rise to the ultimate rod. The Grandwave is an incredibly strong, light, thin and robust rod that is capable of fishing up to 200lb braided lines, and lift the heaviest weights from the deepest depths.

The amazing power from the blank is support by a detachable aluminium bent butt, Fuji guides that are heavily wrapped for extra strength and a swivelling roller tip to keep the line in direct contact with the roller at all times. The result is strength, power, comfort and function like only Daiwa can deliver.


The 56HFD model is rated for 80–120lb braided line, perfectly matched to our Tanacom 1000, Tanacom Bull 500/1000 or Seaborg 1000 reels. Best suited to water up to 500metres deep this is the ideal model for heavy-duty reef fishing. The rod’s short detachable bent butt also makes it perfect for trailer boat fishing or stand-up fishing on the reefs.

The 511HFD is the most versatile model in the range with the ability of fishing 60-150lb line. Ideal for big and small boats and is best suited to depths of 150-600m. Matching perfectly with the 500/1000 Tanacom, Seaborg 800MJ Megatwin or Seaborg Megatwin 750 reel. This is the one rod to cover both the heavy and light deep dropping situations.

The 66XHFD is the ultimate heavy-duty deep water rod capable of fishing up to 200lb braided line and is best matched with the Tanacom/Tanacom Bull/Seaborg 1000 or the Marine Power 3000 reels. Its long detachable bent butt is designed specifically to being fished directly out of the rod holder and is ideal for fishing the deepest darkest water. If the thrill of chasing the biggest, baddest and tastiest fish from depths well over 1000 metres is your ultimate adventure then matching the 66XHFD to a Marine Power 3000 reel will see you fitted out with the ultimate Dendoh outfit.
