The Free Swimmer features an Air Rotor that stands out for its balance, toughness, and sensitivity. Its arched profile and 15% weight reduction compared to standard rotors offers optimal winding smoothness while eliminating vibration thanks to a lowered center of gravity. Its waterproof, carbon Automatic Tournament Drag (ATD) system uses an improved drag grease with low viscosity at rest that becomes more viscous immediately after drag start-up. The result is a super-smooth drag with low initial inertia and beast-stopping power.
The Free Swimmer is available in both 8,000 and 10,000 sizes, with an all-aluminum frame and features Digigear technology. Compared to most of the competition, the gears are between 20% to 40% larger and have a bigger tooth pattern, resulting in longer gear life, up to three times that of competitive reels. Machined Aluminum Screw-In Handle with a Power Round EVA knob for generating extra leverage, plus an O-ring sealing system to ensure high-quality saltwater performance.
The Free Swimmer has a dual drag system, with the secondary drag specially designed to allow fish to take your bait and swim away without feeling a thing. This feels more natural to the fish, making them hold on to your bait longer, and giving you more time to set the hook. This reel is a must-have for shark fishing, striped bass, catfish, surf fishing, and many other types of fishing applications.
Daiwa’s Automatic Tournament Drag uses an improved drag grease that exhibits a low viscosity at rest, yet becomes more viscous immediately after drag start up. This reduces initial drag start-up inertia and combined with the structural changes of the ATD Drag System results in a smoother drag from the initial hook up.
Daiwa’s first generation of digitally engineered gear design ensures a perfect mesh between ultra-tough drive gear and pinion gears for optimized speed, power, durability and smoothness.
