Locally relevant and regionally optimized, Daiwa’s TD BLACK rods represent Daiwa’s dedication to producing the most well-rounded Australian specific range of light tackle rods on the market.

A HVF Nanoplus blank equipped with X45X Full Shield technology produces lightweight, crisp and responsive actions that feel great in the hand. The high-modulus HVF graphite, combines with Nanoplus resin technology to reduce the overall weight of the rods. Outfitted with Fuji Alconite anti-tangle guides and Daiwa exclusive AIRSENSOR reel seats for optimum comfort and balance.


X45X Full Shield Technology is 25% more efficient than standard X45 technology. With increased torsional stiffness, blanks armed with X45X resist blank twist during casting & jigging. This characteristic prevents the blank from losing stored energy during the cast, ensuring that every bit of force you put into your cast, is transferred through the blank and ultimately to your chosen lure.


Daiwa’s carbon fibre reel seat that’s minimal in weight, yet high in strength and sensitivity. Our ultimate high end, high performance reel seat.


Through the use of nano resin control technology in the blank construction process, Nanoplus allows for increased graphite density to be achieved within a graphite rod blank.


Bias construction within the ferrule allows it to flex with the rod, eliminating the weak, unbending spot caused by ordinary ferrules. The result of this revolutionary technology is a multi-piece blank that matches the performance of one-piece blanks in flex, power and responsiveness.
