Daiwa’s flagship light-tackle rod series has been totally overhauled with the introduction of the 20 EXSENCE GENOS series. The pinnacle of Daiwa Australia rod design, 20 EXSENCE GENOS was a ground-up redevelopment with brand-new technology combining with decades of local knowledge and design experience from Daiwa’s product development team in Australia.
It all starts with the blank, and 20 EXSENCE GENOS is using SVF Compile-X Nanoplus graphite. This is an incredibly high-modulus carbon sheet with nano-technology resin which offers unmatched sensitivity and power-to-weight ratio. Allowing for blanks which are both incredibly lightweight, and ultra-crisp and responsive.
Daiwa’s newest generation Air Guide System (AGS) carbon fibre guides have been equipped on 20 EXSENCE GENOS. These feature improved frame design to minimise line tangles and slimmer ceramic inserts to further reduce weight and minimise friction for longer casts.
The blanks have been further improved using a clever combination of Daiwa’s 3DX and X45X Full Shield graphite technologies. Both work together to increase torsional stiffness to reduce blank twisting and eliminate power loss when loading. The result is an even crisper and more responsive blank which is the standard for the 20 EXSENCE GENOS series.
Fans of Daiwa rods from the past will instantly recognise the distinct clear finish to 20 EXSENCE GENOS’s new AIRSENSOR hybrid reel seat. These new reel seats have been carefully designed to improve comfort with features like offset blanks in the baitcast rod to make your hand sit lower and make palming reels more comfortable.
A totally overhauled model line-up now includes more models to cater to any kind of fishing throughout Australia. From ultralight spin rods to baitcast swimbait rods capable of throwing the biggest glidebaits for murray cod and barramundi. EXSENCE GENOS has it all and is in a league of its own.
