If you wish to head out and mix it up with the big boys why not do it with super high quality reels. The Daiwa Isla 7000 Fishing Reels are a class above the rest and the two models in the large size class are a natural progression from their famous predecessor, the Saltiga. The big difference anglers will be excited about is that you get all the features of the Saltiga, with a few changes and additions but for a price that doesn’t take your breath away. Thanks to Daiwa’s commitment to listening to the loyal customers, and acting on their requests, they have built a high end model with all of the flagship inclusions but at a price that represents better value for the discerning angler. Of course, this price requires commitment but the angler is suitably rewarded with a power house of refined technology ready to take on the toughest, hardest fighting species we have, from the ocean rocks to the blue water.
There are two models in the large range, the 7000 and the 7000H, (H being high speed). Gear ratio is the only difference between the models but this variation allows the angler to choose a reel based on hard cranking applications or the need for speed. Most anglers purchasing a reel of this stature will be well aware of the benefits of both. High speed is great when you’re casting and retrieving big minnows, metal slices or other large, fast moving lures, but those fishing deeper in the water column for big Tuna and the like, will really enjoy the extra cranking power of the 7000.
The inclusion list (below) reads like a who’s who of reel technological innovation. All of Daiwa’s cutting edge innovation has been packed inside the Super Metal Housing. From the reel saving Mag Seal and CRBB, to the casting and winding attributes of ABS II, Zaion Air Rotor and Twist Buster II, all the famous kit is there. Further corrosion improvements have been made by moving the Isla to a manual bail arm, removing the automatic bail arm spring that has often been a source for premature corrosion.
30kg of Ultimate Tournament Drag is more than enough to pull a heavy set angler straight out of the boat and there’s line capacity to patiently play out the longest running monster. All this happens in perfect synchronicity as bearings, rotor and Hyper Digigear communicate as if one.
The Isla 7000(H) will suit the land based game angler and the blue water angler looking for the ultimate in heavy sports spin action. You will target tackle busting Kingfish, Giant Trevally, Jewfish, Tuna and Mackerel in the type of fights that test your physical fitness. Get a Daiwa Isla Fishing reel in the 7000 or 7000H. There is nothing better. Are you up to the challenge? Can you handle monster fish on spin? With Daiwa Isla your chances are higher than ever.
