High End Flatty/Bream Combo


In stock

Take a second to really appreciate the value in this one because it is one that will impress you when you first look at the components and then look at the price. Deal 3 is what we are calling a high end flatty/bream combo – an outfit that wouldn’t look out of place on a tournament anglers boat. We all love our fishing here at Hot Tackle and this is an outfit that ticks all the boxes for each and every one of us – and will for you as well. The rod first up is an Abu Garcia Veritas Elite – the most premium out of the three Veritas iterations in the market today – in a 7’0 1-3kg model. The reel is a Daiwa Caldia 2500 – a reel universally loved and beautiful to wind. We’ve added 4 plastics to kickstart your fishing with this combo and drilled the price down to a crazy $350 shipped Australia wide – absolute craziness.

RRP – $680

Daiwa Caldia 2500 Reel

Caldia meets Monocoque (MQ) design in the brand new 21 CALDIA MQ. Undoubtedly one of Daiwa’s flagship technologies, MQ design enables the holy grail of reel design. A reel that is more compact and lighter, yet at the same time provide a larger gear box and increased strength. By equipping Caldia with MQ technology, a significant increase in gear size has been achieved, whilst making the overall reel itself even lighter than previous generations.

At the heart of the new MQ body is a Tough Digigear design that provides smooth & powerful reeling performance. The new ZAION V rotor construction achieves minimal start-up inertia, giving the angler the feeling of almost weightless rotation.

A Magseal body pairs with the MQ design to further inhibit ingress of contaminants into the reel body, prolonging the life of the reel significantly. Daiwa’s ATD Drag system, Airbail & Long Cast ABS II spool design are all present and make this Caldia the best yet.
