Ultimate casting technology and innovation … the best way to describe Daiwa’s latest superb shore lure casting rods – Labrax AGS. Designed as our most sensitive rocky shore and beach lure fishing rod ever, the Labrax’s unique design and AGS technology delivers unparalleled sensitivity and casting performance.
At the heart of Labrax’s design is one of Daiwa’s greatest design innovations – X45. This new innovation delivers ultimate strength, power, and weightlessness, resulting in an ultra slim blank that eliminates blank twist and massively increases torque, and blank recoil. By using this design the blank returns to its straight form quickly, inturn delivering faster acceleration, and longer more responsive casting. By combining HVF “High Volume Fibre” carbon with X45 construction we have created a powerful super slim lightweight blank with more responsiveness and sensitivity than ever before seen in any shoregame rod.
The highest performance blank needs to be complimented with the same quality componentry – AGS (Air Guide System). Daiwa has never been satisfied with the progressive development of guides made from traditional materials, so we pursued the evolution of the material itself. Our quests lead us to the development of own guides made from the lightest, strongest and most sensitive material available – graphite.
AGS’s main feature is its unique graphite frame that’s more sensitive than metal, lighter, stronger and more rigid than any other guide ever made. By using graphite we have taken rod design and lure fishing to another level that allows for faster casts, greater distance, increased accuracy, decreased rod vibration and a massive increase in sensitivity. AGS is “Technology to Feel”.
Keeping the rod light is essential so minimal componentry is used. Lightweight slim ultra hard split EVA grips reduce weight and increase sensitivity while the surround hold “Seabass” reel seats deliver ultimate comfort, compactness and sensitivity. These ultra slim reel seats transmit the slightest vibration from the rod/reel to your hand allowing you to detect the slightest of bites.
Labrax AGS delivers an all-new level of performance to shoregame lure fishing, one never seen before in Australia. Combine these rods with Zaion base reels like the Surf Basia and you will have the ultimate surf outfit with Technology to feel.
