A spinning reel for the future, the Daiwa Exist G LT starts a new chapter of engineered performance from Daiwa. The future of Daiwa spinning reels is in Airdrive Design: a new concept designed to maximize control and provide trouble-free functionality at the highest standard. An innovative evolution in spinning reel technology, this is the first reel to showcase Daiwa's Airdrive Design, which features four brand new front-end systems to create the masterpiece that is the Exist G LT.
Daiwa's continued focus on innovation has allowed a refined and improved rotor response. Crafted from a single, solid piece, the Exist's Airdrive Rotor takes the 2018 ZAION-made Exist rotor and reduces the weight significantly, achieving flawless rotation at a 16% reduction in weight from the previous model.
A smaller diameter bail achieves the required strength and weight reduction to make the new Airdrive Bail 33% lighter than the '18 Exist. Daiwa also adjusted the angle of the bail to better guide your line into the roller, achieving the worry-free line management expected in a flagship spinning reel.
The new Airdrive Spool is a standout feature of the Daiwa Exist, being thinner and more compact than any previous Daiwa model. With a newly shaped spool skirt in a gorgeous silver finish, it serves a crucial primary purpose: an overall reduction in weight and perfected balance.
The final new feature of the Airdrive System is the Airdrive Shaft, a non-contact structure between the main shaft and the pinion gear. Now, both ends of the pinion gear are supported with bearings to relay cranking power from the handle to the rotor with the highest level of efficiency. The Airdrive Shaft creates a buttery smooth, quiet rotation and provides anglers with maximum torque and power with each turn of the handle.
Daiwa's Monocoque Body Design (MQ) is extremely rigid, defying conventional reel structure and design. With an ultra light and ultra rigid magnesium frame, there is increased space for a larger drive gear than standard reel frames, delivering a powerful feel and performance. Machine-cut Tough DigiGear is coated with upgraded surface processing to increase the hardness of the gear to further protect the reel from wear and tear. These gears allow for virtually silent rotation and maximum sensitivity for an immediate rotational response.
Daiwa's patented and unique Magsealed design lets you achieve maximum protection of the gears and internal components. With completely closed-off drive gear and pinion shaft ball bearings, magnetism is used to create a mag-oil barrier that prevents water intrusion. The new ATD (Automatic Tournament Drag) Type-L has a further improved initial response of the drag system while maintaining the extremely smooth functionality of Daiwa's original ATD.
A showcase for the future of spinning reel angling and continuing its flagship legacy, the new Daiwa Exist G LT achieves perfection for the serious angler looking for the best equipment available!
