MAVERICK MQ with the building blocks of what makes this reel unique and truly special. Inside the MQ body sits a G1 Duralumin drive gear, the same exact gear set that is found in the world-renowned 20 SALTIGA and 21 CERTATE SW. This large diameter, G1 drive gear gives MAVERICK MQ unmatched power and strength for its class and pushes the boundaries on giving anglers more affordable options to tackle the world’s largest predators.

The high-spec features don’t end there, with MAVERICK MQ also sporting both a MAGSEAL body and MAGSEAL ball bearing equipped line roller for ultimate saltwater durability. Daiwa’s MAGSEAL is the perfect way to seal a reel’s internal components from damaging saltwater ingress.

A one-piece seamless airbail directs line into the roller for trouble-free usage and is installed on Daiwa’s ZAION Air Rotor, a highly stiff and rigid carbon composite material which is lightweight for low inertia start up but incredibly strong to withstand heavy drag settings. MAVERICK MQ is equipped with an aluminium ball knob for comfort and comes in a range of both XH and H gear ratios to suit both topwater lure casting and deep water jigging alike.

MAVERICK MQ is available in 8000-20000 sizes and will be a perfect accompaniment to Daiwa’s range of DEMON BLOOD rods, a popular choice amongst keen saltwater anglers.



New gear design combined with the G1 Duraluminium material creates the pinnacle of gear strength and precision. The gear design reduces the amount of wear, including twist and deformation to both the drive & pinion gears. New gear design combined with MQ body creates the pinnacle of saltwater spinning reels.


Ultimate protection is delivered to the engine room of the reel with a magnetised oil seal located on the main shaft of the reel’s rotor shutting the door to the elements and unwanted intruders. Dust, water, and salt intrusion into the inner workings of a reel are a thing of the past with MagSeal.


One of the hardest working and exposed areas of a spin reel is provided with ultimate protection with a MagSealed line roller bearing shutting out the elements for optimum line roller protection, performance and longevity.


A one-piece frame eliminates the use of traditional two-piece body & sideplate construction. A single piece body utilises a screw-in engine plate to house the main gear, reducing flex and twist under load creating a sealed mechanism. The elimination of the side plate has also allowed for a more compact body design. MQ technology not only makes reels stronger & better sealed, but also more compact.
