Daiwa Tournament Master Z-I- New Release

TMZ-I …the new
Super Interline revolution.
 
Imagine the
ultimate sports fishing rods… rods designed with the latest revolutionary
technology…development expenditure is irrelevant and performance is priority.
Then imagine no more….Tournament Master Z Interline.Click here for information on Daiwa Australia website

The fishing rod
has been in existence for hundreds of years, the basic design with the
combination of blank, guides, reel seat and handles has remained the same since
its inception. New technology has seen improvements in materials like graphite,
silicone guides and hypalon but in reality the basic principle design has never
changed.
 

Daiwa’s rod
engineers recognised this and in the mid 1990’s the introduction of Interline
took the world by storm. This revolutionary design concept saw the elimination
of guides and introduced the Interline design – no guides, no tangles, no
stress… the fishing rod evolved into the most advanced design ever…Interline.
 

For the past few
years Daiwa Australia and Daiwa Japan’s rod engineers have been working
together to design the world’s best rods. In 2009 Daiwa Australia is proud to
introduce the most technically advanced rods ever seen, the Tournament Master Z
Interlines. Two years in development TMZ will revolutionise and influence the
rods of the future.
 

Nobody puts
graphite, specialized composites and customized components to better work than
Daiwa, matching and enhancing the properties of each to produce the most
advanced performance rods in the world today. TMZ-I rods utilize the incredible
SVF (super high volume fibre) carbon, combining precise resin control with
unidirectional graphite fibre to make one of the lightest, strongest and most
sensitive blanks ever developed. Uniting SVF with the famous Linear Interline
design, the new “Super Interline” introduces for the first time in Australia “Hyper
Dry” technology – a super water repellent dry polymer that offers the smoothest
casts ever seen in a rod. Internally the raised interline spiralling when
magnified 10,000 times looks like a rough coral reef several microns deep,
capable of holding water and grit, limiting the rods casting ability. “Hyper
Dry” technology, the super high water repellent dry polymer reduces the surface
roughness to only 0.5 microns, causing water to bead at a 160 degree axis,
previous interlines produced a 110 degree axis. The higher the bead axis the
quicker water can be discharged, thus reducing line drag. Developed over four
years, Hyper Dry produces a smooth running line flow, matching conventional
guided rods, previously this could never be achieved without the introduction
of “Hyper Dry” technology.
 

Adding to the
development of Hyper Dry, the newly designed linear spiralling has allowed the
raised convex spiral to have a smaller perfectly rounded peak, decreasing line
contact and drag thus increasing distance and accuracy by drawing the water off
the line and keeping the line centred in the rod.
By increasing the
amount of spirals (up to 200 spiral points in a 1.8m section) and deceasing the
spiral peak, TMZ-I rods have become inherently more sensitive, more contact
points means higher transfer of vibration and movement, compared to guided rods
which only have a minimal number of guides as contact points.
 

The new
generation super interlines are like no other. Like its predecessors it does
away with external guides and uses the famous internal raised spiral blank thus
putting an end to tangling and slack line. Adding to this with the development
of SVF and Hyper Dry, the all new design introduces a fine diameter blank that resists
twisting, eliminating blank stress, creating better casting accuracy, even
smoother drag pressure and greater hook setting power.

The Merits of Interline Technology  

1. Smooth bending
curve – Interline rods bend evenly, no stress points provides maximum blank
strength, unlike guided rods which create an uneven segmented curve with high
stress points.
 

2. 360 degree
axially symmetric tip – completely tangle free and provides equal performance
at any angle, standard tip guides tangle easily and to get full performance
they must be used at the same direction as the line.
 

3. No external
weight – normal guides add weight, thus the action of the blank is degraded,
Interlines guide structure is integrated inside the blank, and no external
weight means the blanks true action is achieved.
 

4. Torque free –
the line is located inside the blank, no guides to provide torque stress
points, with many contact points torque and friction is reduced, normal
external guides create high friction and torque reducing the life of the blank.
 

5. Linear Interline
raised spirals – line is distributed evenly along the entire spiral structure,
providing smoother retrieves and ultra smooth drag pressure.
 

6. No guides – no
tangles, no guide breakages, even line control with convenient no tangling
storage.
 

7. Extremely high
sensitivity – with up to 200 linear contact points directly onto highly
sensitive carbon, Interlines are inherently more sensitive compared to standard
rods, guides are made of materials that absorb vibration “dulling” line
sensitivity.
 

8. No slack line
– standard guided rods can have up to 30 cm’s of slack line due to the
segmented guide distribution whereas interline provides completely even line
distribution, even the subtlest of bites are felt and strikes are
instantaneous.
 

9. Entrance
Guides – silicone entrance guides are located at precise locations to reduce
drag and funnel line quicker than standard guides. The quicker the line is
funnelled the smoother, further and more accurate the cast.
 

10. Cool factor –
ok it’s not a technical benefit like the above facts, but these are the
coolest, funkiest and sexiest most technically advanced rods available.
