AIRDRIVE DESIGN was created to be the pinnacle, the one which all will follow. DAIWA has developed an innovative masterpiece allowing anglers to be in total control. Reduced weight, smooth rotation and high response allows the reel to spin freely. All of those combined elements come together to create AIRDRIVE DESIGN.

Rotation like you have never felt before.

The future of Daiwa Spinning Reels is AIRDRIVE DESIGN.

By reducing the weight of rotor, spool & bail assembly, a lighter rotation is achieved.

The effortless rotation allows the angler to feel the true joy of trouble free function.

This new chapter starts with 22 EXIST.

 

Airdrive Rotor

Airdrive Rotor

Low inertia is the key.

The newly developed AIRDRIVE ROTOR is made from ZAION. Maintaining the strength of the rotor from 18 EXIST, DAIWA has been able to reduce the weight significantly. Designed with focus to create a perfectly round structure, trouble free and flawless rotation have been achieved.

The rotor unit itself has seen a 16% weight reduction compared to the previous model (Based on 2500 size reel) and will set the standard for what future rotor design of small spinning reels will be.

Airdrive Bail

Airdrive Bail

Trouble free future.

DAIWA has constructed a bail smaller in diameter whilst providing required strength to achieve a further weight reduction to the front unit. In comparison to 18 EXIST, AIRDRIVE BAIL reduces the weight of the bail by 33% (compared to 2500 size).

DAIWA has adjusted the angle of bail setting to improve the line movement into the roller. Careful attention was given to the roller and slider and individual design alterations were done for each size of 22 EXIST, perfectly adjusting the line management for each size of the reel.

Airdrive Spool

Airdrive Spool

Design reflects the future.

The stand out features of the AIRDRIVE SPOOL would have to be the newly shaped spool skirt and the simple single silver coloured cosmetic. Just by looking at the spool it is clear the structure has been redeveloped, reducing the weight and maximising the feeling of presence.

Reducing the spool weight creates many benefits for a reel; the total weight of reel is reduced, oscillation is improved, less resistance during winding and rotation, better balance when attached to the rod and of course the reel feels light and easy to fish.

Airdrive Shaft

Airdrive Shaft

Friction free rotation.

AIRDRIVE SHAFT has a non contact structure between the mainshaft and the pinion gear. In addition to this, both ends of pinion gear are now supported with bearings to relay the crank power from the handle to the rotor with a higher level of efficiency. By adding high quality collars to the mainshaft, rotational noise has been reduced significantly.

AIRDRIVE SHAFT creates the feel of smooth, quiet rotation and provides anglers with torque and power.
