Newly released for 2023, the Daiwa Salamandura Air TW is an all-new bait finesse reel built around Daiwa’s versatile SV 70 platform (used for the Tatula SV TW 70 in the USA) and packed with the high-end features of Daiwa’s HYPERDRIVE Design for finesse fishing enthusiasts.
Utilizing Daiwa’s Hyper Armed Housing, the frame and handle sideplate are constructed from strong and lightweight aluminum. Salamandura Air TW is durable, comfortable, and extremely palmable.
Equipped with an aluminum 80mm handle, perfectly sized for bait finesse fishing. The I-shaped handle knobs are constructed from Daiwa’s dense carbon Zaion material and are lightweight and sensitive.
Internally, Salamandura Air TW features Daiwa’s Hyperdrive Digigear, a gear design that makes the teeth of the gears more efficient at transferring power, therefore making the gear set feel smoother and more powerful while also reducing gear noise. The Hyper Tough Clutch eliminates false clutch engagements, even under hard casting conditions. Equipped with 7+1 bearings (5 CRBB – corrosion resistant ball bearings), Salamandura Air TW is a pleasure to cast and retrieve and is rated safe for saltwater use.
Armed with Daiwa’s T-Wing System (TWS) that provides accurate line lay on the retrieve while opening up during the cast for minimized friction resulting in increased casting distance and line control. The 30mm shallow AIR spool is designed specifically for bait finesse fishing and can easily cast lures down to 1/16oz when paired with the recommended 30m (33 yards) of light braid or fluorocarbon/nylon line. Salamandura Air TW also has a drag clicker, a must-have feature on modern bait finesse reels.
Finished in a stunning deep red and black colorway that perfectly compliments the fire salamander emblem on the sideplate, giving Salamandura Air TW a stylish and modern design.
