The TD Luna is one of Daiwa’s finest traditional shaped baitcasters, built for those heavy cover and open water top of the food chain fish that demand heavier line and heavier muscle. Built strong the TD Luna for maximum strength and dead on alignment has its mainframe and side plates machined from solid bar stock aluminium by some of the world’s most advanced machining equipment.
Long distance casting is a breeze with Daiwa’s innovations like Centriflex and the Free Floating spool.
Unlike other reels, where the pinion gear constantly rides the shaft, Daiwa’s unique system floats independently on precision, CRBB ball bearings. Because the pinion rides its own separate shaft, the spins freely, unhampered by gear train friction when casting.
Overrun is controlled by Centriflex, this system only applies spool braking at top spool speed, where it is needed most. So there’s no friction from the brake blocks at the beginning or end of a cast to hamper casting performance. As you start your cast, brake blocks are retracted so there’s no braking friction. This lets the spool start faster and reach a higher speed. As spool approaches maximum speed, Centriflex levers automatically push brake blocks against the brake drum for the braking action needed to prevent overrun. As spool begins to slow, brake blocks automatically retract. So the spool keeps spinning longer.
Built for heavy-duty work in the salt, TD Luna features hard anodized finish and CRBB ball bearings. Unlike ordinary corrosion resistant bearings with an unprotected open race, Daiwa’s CRBB bearings are shielded to seal out sand, fine grit, salt crystals and other abrasives for even longer life.
Backed up by the best gears and drag available the TD Luna series is one of the strongest series Daiwa produce.
