Daiwa have undertaken a company global first, specifically reserving the launch of a new reel, to the European market first, at EFTTEX. It is the Cast’izm BR.
The Cast’izm concept of ‘mini big pit’ reel was introduced to European customers mid season last year and its groundbreaking spool geometry has been a proven winner.
This concept has now evolved to bring the Cast’izm BR; our first mini big pit, free spool reel.
Developed in close consultation with the UK Korda team, extensive top secret research, field testing and numerous refinements have now resulted in highly compact, distance casting BR. Full and finished samples have recently seen some action in the hands of Darrell Peck, landing some wonderful fish during filming.
Despite its size the Cast’izm BR will still eat up to 107cm of line in one handle turn. Also featuring the unique technology of Mag Sealed the rotor is protected from the intrusion of soluble debris and fine abrasives, resulting in longer lasting smoothness.

CAST’IZM BR 25A
Designed around the proven and groundbreaking spool geometry of the Cast’izm ‘mini big pit’ this BR edition is certain to offer the best of both worlds. Developed in close consultation with team Korda it has been extensively field tested and refined.
Maintaining that ‘compact’ shape, thanks to the 25mm stroke, we have redesigned the Bite ‘n’ Run mechanism to operate within the reduced body size. Experience the crisp operation of the BR trigger and feel the solid engineering at once.
Reach far out casting distances with ease thanks to the balance of a shallow spool taper and high diameter; the Cast’izm concept.
The innovation also extends to the water barrier of Mag Sealed within the rotor. Halting the intrusion of soluble debris and fine abrasives the showroom rotation and precise gear meshing will remain protected and smooth for longer. This technology is unique.
Thanks to the 5.3:1 and over 200mm circumference of a filled spool the Cast’izm BR will crank up to 107cm per handle turn; that’s swift and just as well for those fishing far out.
The manual bail closure is supported by Castlock, securing the bail in place during the cast, letting you apply smooth and controlled closure. The BR also features our HIP line clip and is supplied with a spare spool.
Striking this design harmony between the extraordinary casting values of the ‘mini big pit’ spool, with the free spool function of BR brings to anglers hands the perfect package. This is our new Cast’izm BR25A.
