The Diawa Caldia Z Reel has always been a good looking, performance based mid-priced reel. The 2016 model has lifted the bar again and its fantastic makeover will see it standout on the shelf like a catwalk model strutting her stuff on the runway. Killer good looks are one thing, but, as per tradition, the Caldia Z is jam packed full of features that defy its mid-range price tag.
The Caldia Z reel is lightweight but very strong. While it will appeal to the finesse angler looking for a little more grunt, it will also appeal to those looking to use a compact spin outfit to tackle just about anything the inshore fishing grounds can offer. The 2000 alone can be deployed against the likes of big flathead pulse raising, light gear sports action. Connected to an appropriate rod you’ll have enough muscle to battle flattys and more over the 65cm range. 4kg of UTD will see to that. The same reel will work brilliantly pulling big Bream from the racks using lightweight soft plastics.
With the 2500 and the 3000 you get a massive 7kg of head turning UTD. That’s a lot of fight for such a compact, lightweight reel. This is why the Caldia Z reel will prove very popular for the sports angler that tosses lures throughout the inshore grounds hunting light for massive Flathead, Mulloway, Barra and record Breaking Murray Cod. The smoothness of Digigear II and 9 bearings, coupled with the strength of the Zaion are rotor ensure you remain in the driver’s seat when the pressure is on with hard fighting big fish. Remember, the 3000 is only 245 grams ringing wet, so you’re getting huge fighting power in a very lightweight compact unit. The Caldia will suit mono and braid, holding enough line for the angler to remain confident should a large fish run hard.
