Daiwa Crosscast Z rods!

Daiwa’s Crosscast range continues to deliver exceedingly high quality items for a more than reasonable price, so it came as no surprise when its Crosscast Z rods entered the market and jaws began to drop. On first inspection, the exceptionally slim blanks are very welcome indeed, aiding both aesthetic demands and practical applications. In fact, this slim carp rod is beautifully balanced and highly responsive, creating a memorable fish playing action. The Crosscast Z Rods are forgiving when your hooked victim is under the tip but has plenty of backbone in the reserves when needed.

In terms of performance, this line of rods offers exceptional casting power and there is a rod for almost every situation you may encounter. The 10ft 3.5lb test rod is a really good option for short session fishing, close distance and boat work. A reduced overall length in combination with a beefed up test curve gives the angler plenty of options when looking to fish in weedy or snaggy situations where obstacles are likely to be faced. The 12ft 3.25lb is the perfect all-rounder, and a heavier version is also available, which utilises a 3.75lb test curve. The 13ft 3.75lb is the go-to pick should you be looking to fish at extreme range.

The extra length and high test curve allow heavy leads to be punched to the horizon. A high modulus blank allows for a fantastic degree of accuracy, making fishing multiple rods on a spot an absolute breeze. American Tackle TiForged stainless guides help to minimise any friction with the main line, thus enabling effective line release and retrieval. A 1k carbon outer finish situated on the lower half adds to the beauty of this slim build but increases durability when used on unforgiving terrain.

No Daiwa rod would be complete without a Fuji DPS reel seat, which grips any reel with incredible reliability and helps connect rod and reel as if they were one unit. The abbreviated shrink handle provides a secure grip when looking to wind up a big cast, is extremely comfortable and it looks fantastic too. A simple butt cap with the Daiwa logo helps complete the minimalistic design of the Crosscast Z. This rod is sure to impress everybody that passes by!
