Daiwa Kix Reel FAQ:

What size Kix reels are available for purchase?

The Kix spinning reel is offered in five different sizes in Australia, and each size is sold separately. The smallest size, 2000, is ideal for finesse fishing, while the 5000 is perfect for those needing extra line capacity and strength. Additionally, there are three sizes between 2500, 3000, and 4000.

What Is the best Daiwa Kix size for whiting and bream?

Sizes 2000, 2500 or 3000 offer the ideal finesse fishing package - lightweight with 5-10kg smooth drag pressure in a compact reel.

Can I chase Queenfish and Barramundi with Daiwa Kix? 

Absolutely. Move up in size to the Kix 4000 or 5000 to muscle up for mangrove maulers, shallow reef assassins and anything powerful roaming our northern Australian waters. With Magsealed bodies, 12kg max drag, an Airdrive system and Digitough gearing, the Daiwa 4000 and 5000 size Kix are built for performance.

What rods pair best with the smaller Kix 2000-3000 sizes?

When using the Kix 2000, 2500 and 3000 sizes for finesse lure and bait fishing, we recommend pairing them with high-quality graphite spin rods in the 6-7ft range, rated for lines between 1-5kg.

For the Kix 2000, a 1-4kg spin stick around 6-7ft is ideal for bream, whiting and flathead in estuaries on light lines.

The Kix 2500 matches perfectly with 6-7ft rods rated 2-4kg when targeting bass, yellowbelly, flathead and similar species either lakeside or along beaches and inland rivers.

Finally, the Kix 3000 paired with a 2-6kg graphite spin rod around 7ft is a versatile combo for flathead, snapper and other species needing slightly heavier fishing gear but still with sensitivity for lighter lures/baits needed in shallow waters.

What rods pair best with Kix 4000-5000 sizes?

We find three popular options that perfectly match the Kix 4000/5000 sizes:

1) 7-8ft spin graphite sticks rated 5-12kg for barra, jacks and heavy inshore species. 

2) 9-10ft beach spin rods with lighter 4-8kg ratings for tailor, bream and whiting.

3) offshore graphite rods from PE 1-2 for snapper, reefies and light sport fishing.
