  • new daiwa airity rods

    Has anyone seen the new daiwa tournament airity rods yet?
    I've just seen a picture in the angling times match supplement and in my opinion they look weird! I'm sure they'll be superb to fish with and they'll get a cult following though. They've got a locking reel seat similar to the old bolo rods or beachcasters even. So,no cork handle-the reel seat is fixed to the actual blank itself. They look very futuristic too. The feeder rod looks like its got a small sight bobbin probably an inch or so down from the tip eye instead of a painted tip section. Just wondering what you guys think of it ;-)

      I'll bet they'll be superb to fish with kev-but you're right about the handle-looks weird. I'd have one if they were giving them away,mind you ;-)

                  Yes it was the Shimano Antares Dynabalance feeder rods, which probably one day will be classics???
