    CYPRESS, California, January, 2015—Daiwa’s hugely popular Zillion TWS reels just got faster. Introducing the Xtra Hyper Speed XXS reels with a blazing 9.1:1 retrieve speed! Perfect for Flipping & Pitchin, Buzz baits and burning a lipless crankbait.

    Benefiting from the advanced design concepts and technology of Tatula Baitcasting reels, new Zillion Baitcasting reels offer some very advanced features.

    Now Daiwa has combined their revolutionary T-Wing System (TWS) and Free Floating spool system together to give you an even farther cast.

    T-Wing System – With an ordinary levelwind reel, line coming off the spool is forced through the line guide at a sharp angle. The result is casting friction, especially when the line guide is parked on one side of the reel. The T-Wing’s wider aperture means reduced angles and less friction from any position.

    Daiwa’s Free Floating Spool- Unlike other reels, where the pinion gear constantly rides the spool shaft, Daiwa’s unique system floats the spool independently on precision, stainless steel ball bearings. Because the pinion rides its own separate shaft, the spool spins freely, unhampered by gear train friction when casting.

    When you combine these two systems along with Daiwa’s Magforce®-Z anti-backlash control. You will get a smooth effortless cast that will give you increased distance.

    In addition to Daiwa’s TWS and Free Floating Spool technology, this new family of rugged, high performance baitcasting reels offers a host of Daiwa’s latest technology features, such as:
