The 2016 release Daiwa Catalina is for sale now. This premium performance based super saltwater fishing spin reel is the top shelf pick for those anglers hitting the beach, rocks and blue water hunting a larger class of target. The medium sizes listed below offers 10 to 15kg of ATD (Automatic Tournament Drag), and that’s just the beginning. The drag capacity simply gives you an indication of the head turning strength built in to each Daiwa Catalina reel. It’s the whopping list of hi-tech features that demonstrate the phenomenal performance you can expect.
Don’t be fooled by the size. The 3500 to 4500 range suggests a general purpose inshore reel that you would point at the usual inshore species. The Catalina also offers high speed options. While the 3500 is by no means overkill for hunting Bream, Whiting and Flathead off surfside gutters. You can feel comfortable you have the power to battle a big Mulloway should it take an interest in the weighted grub tail you’re fishing a little deeper in the water column.
The 4000 and 4500 sizes presents realistic access to light sports action with blue water species. They will also perform beautifully hunting Tailor and Mackerel from the rocks and beaches as well as a host of other rocket like surface predators. Shore and boat anglers will love them as will the rock hoppers that like taking big Bream and Pigs from the rocks.
The 2016 Catalina has a stylish yet understated presentation. While the stats reveal a heavier class of reel for size, you simply won’t notice. The Daiwa Catalina Fishing reel is the epitome of balance with perfect weight distribution, particularly under load. Strength is a key feature of the Catalina, as is smoothness. This is why you get access to a bigger class of fish. The Catalina punches well above its size and weight.
Spool capacity is very generous, particularly for those using braid. Spool Capacity plus the significant drag power and housing strength combine to provide awesome fighting power that will see your Daiwa Catalina spinning reel deployed anywhere there is a strong chance of fish with size. Take a look at the extensive list of technological features and instead of drooling, just put one in your shopping basket.

This is a high performance spin reel. It is strongly advised that you match it with a rod of a similar pedigree. The 3500 will strap beautifully to a boat rod around the 6 to 7 foot length with a line class of 6 to 15kg or a 10-12ft surf rod with a rating to around 8kgs The 4000 and 4500 will sit perfectly on a medium action rod 8 to 12 foot. A line class of 4 to 10 kg will be best depending on whether you select the 4000 or 4500 or for boat anglers the 4000-4500 size will suit any boat spin rod with a rating upto around 15kgs or so.
♦ The Catalina is hi tech, Hi performance. You will be fishing with the best daiwa technology designed to last and perform brilliantly.
♦ Mag seal will keep all the dust, salt, sand and water away from the critical moving parts. Your reel will stand the test of time. The significant reduction in friction afforded by Mag Seal also enhances performance.
♦ The Super Metal Housing and Zaion Air Rotor provide the phenomenal strength required in a heavy duty spin real, without the fatigue generating weight. Digigear II is the heart of this strength however, and is also the core source of Catalina precision.
♦ Twist buster II and ABS II combine with the Tough Air Bail and Air Rotor system to deliver outstanding casting qualities and precision line management.
♦ The manual bail return does away with the auto return spring that is often the first component to fail in many a spin reel.
When only the best will do, select Daiwa Catalina reels for your medium, heavy duty spin needs. This is a premium class spin reel designed for the more discerning angler who fishes hard, for hard fighting big fish.
