The next generation in rod development… Generation Black now in two piece. The design and development over the past three years for the new GB series has resulted in some of the finest rod actions available that we have developed in this price point. The first one piece series are renowned as the best value for money rods available and now with the introduction of the 2 piece models, the series has even more options than ever.
Using Daiwa’s HVF (High Volume Fibre) graphite combined with the blank actions based on our flagship rods like Steez and Black Label, we have created an amazing series of rods but at a fraction of the price. To compliment a brilliant blank, we have finished it with quality componentry, and GB rods feature some of the best available for this price range. Using Fuji’s lightweight Alconite guides so to keep the blanks action, these guides provide superior casting, unlimited line flow and line protection. By combining Fuji’s guide technology with Daiwa’s RR (reduced resistance) guide system, the guide placement and sizing allows for the superior casting qualities available from these blanks.
One of the most important parts of a rod is the reel seat, it needs to hold a reel firmly and be comfortable in your hand, GB rods feature Daiwa’s custom made Tournament Graphite reel seats. The spin models have a screw down foregrips with a removable spacer for smaller reels, EVA insert and grip section for the palm of your hand, while the baitcasters use Daiwa’s TDZ skeleton, it has a super low profile to keep the reel closer to the exposed blank to transfer vibration from the rod and a screw down foregrip. The reel seats are complimented with ultra hard and tough minimalist EVA grips that provide excellent grip and help reduce the weight dramatically.
Finished off in an all matt black finish with minimal styling, the Generation Black series match perfectly with the Ballistic, Freams and Lexa range of spinning reels. Giving you tournament quality tackle without tournament quality pricing. If you ever wanted one series of rods to cover all light tackle lure fishing then the Generation Black series is the series for you.
