Going Premium - Daiwa Launches New J-Fluoro Samurai
Introduction: Daiwa has a number of new reel and rod launches this ICAST
but one of the products that the company is most excited about is their J-Fluoro
Samurai Fluorocarbon, a new mainline that is designed to be a premium line
delivering exceptional sensitivity, strength, handling, and reliability.
Daiwa's newest line is a premium fluorocarbon that will be
produced in Japan
Fluorocarbon: Daiwa is one of the leaders when it comes to reel refinement,
and when it comes to rod design the company literally changed the sensitivity
game with their AGS guides. Over the years the company has continued to grow
their following in the line category, and has especially made significant gains
in the braided superlines segment with the Samurai Series, and most recently
with their popular J-Braid line. This year the company is launching a new
premium fluorocarbon that is engineered and produced in Japan.
A look at the retail packaging. 220yd spools are marked
with sticker at the mid point so it makes it easy to spool two reels without
guesswork or wasting line
Daiwa’s J-Fluoro Samurai fluorocarbon mainline is designed to
deliver invisibility, strength, reliability, and excellent overall performance
to anglers of all walks. It will be offered in a multitude of sizes with varying
levels of tautness and super small diameters including 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 12,
14, 16, 18, 20, 22, and 25-pound test strengths, so that there is a line weight
to suit every fishing application. For panfish and trout anglers to bass and
walleye to inshore species, J-Fluoro Samurai hopes to impress anglers with its
ultra-clarity and strength characteristics.
Interestingly J-Fluoro has been engineered to be
application specific depending on the test, for example 2-12 lbs. tests are
formulated stouter for better sensitivity, while 14-25 lb. tests are made softer
for better spool management.
J-Fluoro will also be available in
1000yd. bulk spools
All weights of J-Fluoro Samurai will be wound on ergonomic spools
with convenient filler-enabled spool protectors, and the 220 yd. filler spools
are marked with a D-VEC sticker at the midway point, yielding an exact count
when spooling two reels. No more guessing or wasted line! This premium new line
will become available a few weeks after ICAST and 220yd, filler spools will
retail from $20.99-$42.99 depending on the weight, and 1000yd bulk spools will
retail from $59.99 to $159.99 each.
