Daiwa designed the Aird 5500 fishing reel as the ultimate reel for casing off rocks or the beach and out into the surf. The huge spool capacity of the Aird 5500 makes it possible to cast far into the distance.
The Aird 5500 has been built with six ball bearings (5+1) to guarantee a smooth experience reeling in every catch. Daiwa has developed the Aird 5500 with a 5.1 gear ratio, drag pressure of 10kg, and a total weight of 610g. Those specifications make it a highly effective reel for rapid casting over long distances.
Surfcasting has suddenly become more effective, and it’s all thanks to the Daiwa Aird 5500. The six stainless steel ball bearings already go a long way to ensuring smooth performance, but then additional features boost the overall performance in exciting ways.
For instance, Digigear has been added to deliver tremendous cranking power. Speed, power and longevity are all optimized by a bronze pinion gear and surface-treated alloy drive gear. The strongest of fish won’t be able to fight against the drive of the Aird 5500.
The Daiwa Aird 5500 reel has a long-cast spool system that fits perfectly with distance casting at high speeds. Twist Buster has been added as an extra feature to guard against line twisting and to lower friction.
