Some of you might already know about this news.
The eging brand of DAIWA “Emeraldas” has released the iconic eging reel – Emeraldas MX ’17.
Today we are introducing you this very impressive coloured reel model.
Lighter and Smoother Reel
The most important factors you may think, and mostly we agree, are the lightweight and the smoothness, especially when you are jerking the egi lures while squidding.
And those points are what this reel achieved the most.
Comparing to other Emeraldas reels, let’s do with ’14 Emeraldas MX, ’16 Emeraldas, the new ’17 Emeraldas MX is the lightest for all models.
Example, 2508PE – ’14 Emeraldas 210g / ’16 Emeraldas 235g / ’17 Emeraldas MX 200g, ’17 model is the lightest of course, and 10g lighter than the previous model, and 35g lighter than ’16 model.
All models comparison is below:
|›14 Emeraldas MX||210g||210g||230g||230g|
|’17 Emeraldas MX||200g||200g||215g||215g|
And this is achieved by Zaion body, the new carbon material technology by DAIWA.
Smoothness by DAIWA Technology
This ’17 Emeraldas MX also has 2 main technologies from DAIWA – Air Rotor and ATD (Automatic Drug System).
Air Rotor is the new DAIWA’s rotor shape that keeps the same strength but much lighter than old normal rotors. This rotor is more balanced so it spins very smooth.
ATD is the drug system that release the lines smoother than previous, especially when start to drug the line, so squid won’t feel weirdness at first so they won’t fight too much.
Very “Emerald” Body
And of course, as you can see it clearly from the picture… This reel has lots of “Emerald Green” on the body. Much more than Emeraldas ’16.
Spec and Release Date
Those models are exactly the same as Emeraldas ’16, 4 models – 2508PE / 2508PE-H / 2508PE-DH / 2508PE-H-DH. -H is the high gear models, and -DH is the double handled models.
Release date was July 2017, so you can get the reels already!
