Daiwa Caldia 18 LT

 

The Caldia joins the ranks of the LT

 
 

The Caldia makes its entry into the world of LT reels: stronger and smaller models. The sleek profile hides a reinforced mech while bringing the Caldia 2500 under the 200g mark. This feather weight extends to the Tough Digigear drive gear whose volume, thickness and teeth have been refined for optimal performance: smooth winding and increased durability and strength. These benefits are amplified by the magnetic Mag Sealed oil, a unique Daiwa concept. A final evolution comes in the reinforced pure stainless steel axis.

 

 Features:

  • ATD drag technology, full size drag button
  • Bearings: 6 + 1 incluing 1 CRBB
  • ZAION carbon body and DS4 carbon Air Rotor
  • Aluminium spool with Long Cast profile
  • CrossWrap line lay
  • Ultralight one-piece unscrewable Air Handle in aluminium

Hightlights

  • Ultra-light
  • Smooth
  • Powerful

 

 

 

LIGHT AND TOUGH

LT is a new concept in Daiwa engineering which has produced new sizes of reels that are smaller and tougher than ever. The entirely redesigned Digigear drive is reinforced. 

It’s impossible to part with an LT reel once you’ve held it in your hands!

 

 

NEW COMPACT DESIGN

 

Daiwa engineers have sought to eliminate unnecessarily heavy components and shapes without compromising on the toughness or the capacity of the spool. This totally new compact design with a more powerful Digigear gives our LT reels an unrivalled weight to power ratio.

 

ZAION and DS5

ZAION and DS5 are extremely tough materials which benefit from Daiwa’s own carbon technology. These carbon components make the reel lighter yet tougher than standard graphite. 100% resistant to corrosion even in saltwater environments. Light, tough and durable: these are the best build materials for our reels.

Lighter: Materials have been comapred at a given density

 

TOUGH DIGIGEAR

Inspired by the Digigear, this tougher brother has been optimised in all respects: diameter, thickness, shape and size of the teeth. We have trialled and tested each detail in turn and refined the elements with surgical precision. 

The result is pure technical prowess in terms of toughness.

 

ALUMINIUM AIR SPOOL

We have re-designed the shape, size and thickness of this spool to produce an ultra-light version way ahead of its predecessors. Even lighter than our current ABS Air Spool, which fine-tunes the balance of the reel.

 

ULTRA POWERFUL DRAG

We’ve brought together multiple improvements down to the very finest detail of the spool build, the shaft, the discs, and the braking surface to maximise the benefits of ATD.

LT reels have redefined the boundaries of maximum drag ratings, despite their reduced size and weight.

 

Cross Wrap

This technology cross wraps the line around the spool for optimised offloading on the cast. This is absolutely key to preventing tangles and linespin.

 

HANDLE

We have retooled the handle to bring it into line with the main objective of strength and fishing durability. The new design contributes to the lightness of the reel.

 

 

MAGNETIC OIL

Magnetic Oil is one of a new generation of Nano Fluids that can change density and shape when a magnetic field is applied.

 

ATD Drag

The ATD boasts discs which have been impregnated with a specialist grease to optimise energy yield. This exceptionally high-quality product gives more grinding power at the start and offers a more stable and progressive drag. The risk of breaking off on the fight is kept to a minimum as the ATD adjusts to every phase of the fight: working faster and more progressively on the first run but offering a firmer hold for cranking power in the middle phase. It’s this adaptive feature that gives it its Automatic name.

Smoother, more controlled fights are guaranteed with the Daiwa ATD. Locking the knob is more accurate and the inner base of the spool fits better onto the shaft to reduce drag pulsing.

 

 

AIR ROTOR DESIGN
 
The Air Rotor weighs up to 15% less than ordinary rotor designs. Its unique shape reduces unnecessary weight while distributing stress more evenly throughout the rotor for maximum strength.
 
 

Infinite Anti Reverse

The new Infinite Anti Reverse system is activated with 4 times less force than a classic system.

Less than 2g is needed to engage the Real Stopper system which eliminates any handle movement, bringing sensitivity to the next level.

 

 

Silent Oscillation

The perfect tuning of the contact points between helicoid and straight teeth create an energy yield close to 99% and silent rotation. Daiwa gear trains offer superior winding smoothness.

 

Air Bail

 The hollow Touch Air Bail is made from SUS303 steel and is 20% tougher than a solid titanium bail of the same weight, and with a lifespan 13 x longer.
 

Twist Buster II

The TB2 pickup roller has been developed by Daiwa and precision tooled to guarantee optimal line lay. The system reduces the risks of linespin on the retrieve by 90%.

 

ABS II

In contrast to classic cylindrical spool designs, ABS spools are tapered to limit the risks of tangling on the cast. What’s more, the lip reduces friction to boost casting distance.

The new ABSII design has been optimised to let you reach record distances on the cast.

 

 
 
 
CORROSION RESISTANT BALL BEARINGS
 
Last up to 12 times longer than standard stainless steel ball bearings.
