22‘ Exist LT - The future of modern reel technology!
The new Airdrive design paves the way for DAIWAs future reel technology and offers smooth running and sensitivity you have never experienced bevor. Due to reduced weight of rotor, spool and bail, a softer rotation without starting resistance is enabled, which guarantees an optimally smooth running. The 22‘ Exist is the first reel within the DAIWA range, which is equipped with the new Airdrive concept. The reduction of the rotor‘s weight ensures, you need less effort for starting, as well as faster stopping and thus quicker responses to different retrieving situations. We reduced wall thickness as well as unnecessary weight within the new Airdrive spool - in combination with the reduced weight of the rotor and the bail, this improves the reel balance and thus enables better lure control. In contrast to common spinning reels, DAIWA developed a Low-Contact structure between axis and pinion gear - the Airdrive Shaft. Due to implementing this technology, friction gets reduced and the super soft and silent running is optimized. The new Airdrive concept is a combination of these elements, which enables the construction of extremely-lightweight and sensitive spinning reels. The Airdrive bail is the next evolutionary step within bail design and assimilates perfectly to the new Airdrive concept. DAIWA constructed a somewhat slimmer but nevertheless loadable bail which additionally reduces weight at the reel‘s front. Compared to the 18‘ Exist, the weight of the new Airdrive bail is reduced by 33%. The Twist Buster technology reduces the threat of burdensome line tangling and twist. For the 22‘ Exist, the well-known Twist Buster II technology has been further improved to the Twist Buster III construction. Due to the new construction the compression of the line during retrieving is reduced, which results in significantly less twist. Additionally, a MagSealed line roller has been integrated within the 22‘ Exist, to enduringly resist highest strains even when used at sea fishing.
