Reliability and performance for a reasonable price… the Black Widow rod and reel combination gives the angler quality Daiwa pedigree without having to break the bank.
The rod is made from a lightweight carbon blank, with slim DPS-style reel seat for that custom look. Decals have been kept to a minimum to give it a classy look, with 50mm ringing on all but the 10ft version, while super-sturdy stainless steel rings and ceramic guides keep friction to a minimum.
The Black Widow reel complements the rods perfectly. It’s a compact big pit that is finished in a matt black colour scheme. Detailing from the logos is minimal and gives the in vogue black look to your setup. With impressive cranking power and a smooth quick drag system, the Black Widow looks like a reel with a much higher price tag. A high-quality, line-friendly line clip completes the package, giving you a great rod and reel combination. Daiwa currently has a deal where if you buy two rods and reels you get an additional rod and reel free to complete your three-rod setup. An awesome deal that’s perfect for the angler wanting to update their gear this season.
