Daiwa Z 2020H

The technology of the Daiwa baitcaster
concentrates on the evolution of the braking system. In 2010 Daiwa introduces
the most advanced baitcaster braking system for lure fishing – Magforce 3D.

Daiwa has a strong
history of innovation. Our casting systems have set the standard for reel braking
technology. In the early 1990’s Magforce introduced magnetic braking,
delivering unrivalled line control.

By 1999 Magforce V had evolved, further
refining the casting system and allowing anglers to cast lighter lures than never

Then came the new millennium and Magforce Z which
could cast larger lures longer, smoother and more accurately. All these systems
used a spring loaded inductor rotor in the spool that spun outwards between
magnets to control the braking. Though efficient, it did not allow for different
casting techniques or lure weights. Until now – enter Magforce 3D.

Combining the best attributes of the Magforce
family, Magforce 3D features the ultimate in fine cast control. Unlike previous
systems that relied on the inductor spinning into a single invariable magnetic
field, the new Magforce 3D inductor rotor still shifts between the magnets but
varies the strength of the magnetic field by shifting the magnets in the side
plate. With three modes – Maxbrake, All Round and Longcast, Magforce 3D casting
is now possible in three dimensions – Magforce 3D provides ultimate flexibility
in one reel.

MAX BRAKE – in this mode the magnets are shifted towards the spool
inductor to provide maximum magnetic field, which slows the spool. It is
perfectly suited for casting into head winds with large crankbaits, heavy
spinnerbaits or aerodynamically poor lures like swimbaits.
ALL ROUND -in this mode the inductor rotor enters the magnetic field
similar to the previous V and Z systems, providing braking during maximum speed
to avoid over run. As the spool decelerates the inductor retracts allowing the
spool to spin longer.

The perfect all-rounder.
LONG CAST – in this mode the
magnets move the furthest distance away from the inductor rotor, limiting the
magnetic field and allowing unimpeded spool revolution. It is perfect for
casting long distances in open water where there is little wind.

In addition to the three modes the
Magforce 3D system can be set with the magnetic fine tune cast control dial. With
20 fine tune increments in 3 modes it offers 60 stages making it possible to
cast in all conditions and situations. Z2020H introduces unparalleled rotary spool
efficiency producing optimum casting performance never felt before.

Although spool control is the key
to casting, unimpeded line flow is one of the most overlooked features of
baitcaster design. The Z2020H introduces a new line guide design that uses a
funnel shaped line guide with a wide entrance and thin exit. This allows line
to exit more efficiently. By locating the line guide 38mm away from the spool (previous
designs were 28mm) the line exits at a reduced angle resulting in smooth line
discharge with minimum noise or line wear.

A new generation of Daiwa baitcaster
design is here, Daiwa Z 2020H…delivering what anglers want – pure casting pleasure.
