The Daiwa Exist is moulded using a new type of lightweight material called Zaion—it tips the scale at only 185g.

Compared to the previous version of this reel, this one is corrosion resistant and can be used for both fresh and saltwater fishing.

When cranking, you will notice that it is completely silent due to the Digigear II drive and silent oscillation systems.

The cranking strength of this compact spinning reel is something that you have to feel to believe—it has a 7kg drag system.

Add to that Daiwa’s Magsealed technology that blocks out water, this is technically the most powerful reel in the brand’s range.

The black and gold colouring also gives the Exist a luxurious look.

RRP: $940*

Available at authorised Daiwa dealers.
