Seaborg Megatwin 1000MT

Daiwa’s new Seaborg Megatwin Dual Speed Reels take deep-drop fishing innovation to a whole new level, allowing anglers to shift instantly between high-power and high-speed ranges with the push of a button. Technologically advanced yet easy-to-use Seaborg Megatwin lets you increase either retrieve speed or winding power to suit the particular angling situation. Want to bring up your rig at warp speed to re-bait? No problem – just use the high-speed mode. Need extra torque to move big fish off the bottom? You can turn your Seaborg into a super-winch by simply pressing the “power” button. Having two speed ranges on demand ushers in a new era of functionality for deep drop fishing, making accessing and landing some of the oceans biggest, best eating game fish easier and more efficient than ever.

Like all of Daiwa’s Dendoh Style reels, the new 12-Volt powered Seaborg Megatwin model offers significant advantages over the bulky, unwieldy electric reels previously available to deep-drop anglers. They are smaller, lighter and easier to use than ordinary “electrics.” Yet, despite their sleek, lightweight design, these reels give up nothing when it comes to power and performance. The Seaborg boasts 20kg of maximum continuous (75 kg max. instant winding power) winding power and can retrieve up to 200m per minute!

The Seaborg Megatwin features Daiwa’s exclusive Power Lever for instant control of winding speed and power. The digital readout automatically displays line let out, as well as distance retrieved from the bottom, so you know the depth of your offering at all times.

Upon retrieve, a programmable Auto-Stop feature ensures that the winding stops when your lure or bait reaches the surface. There’s even a special jigging function that can be set to automatically work a lure according to your programmed specifications.

Daiwa’s Seaborg Megatwin reels are not only packed with amazing technological innovations, they’re also extremely durable and reliable, featuring super corrosion CRBB bearings and a washable design with sealed electronics for smooth, long-lasting performance in the harsh marine environment.

Seaborg Megatwin reels can be powered using Daiwa’s compact Dendoh Rechargeable Lithium Battery Packs (sold separately). For up to 8 hours of running time, anglers can purchase the powerful SL8000WP-L portable battery, which connects to the Seaborg Megatwin via “alligator clip” cables that come with the reels. Daiwa’s Dendoh-Style Power Assist Reels can also be powered by connecting these cables to any other onboard 12-Volt power source.
