Looking for other size model Certate reels? - See our full range of Certate Reels here
If the marketing hype is anything to go by, and with Daiwa it usually is, you can expect one hell of a reel in the new Diawa Certate. With the original Certate hitting the shelves back in 2004, the current model represents over 12 years of innovation, building on the principals that made the Certate such a ground breaking release. Of course, it is a very popular choice with the more discerning angler who demands the absolute best in reel performance.
The first thing you will notice about the new model is the stylish cosmetic makeover. With only subtle colour changes and a brand new porting design, the new look will no doubt attract attention. When you hold the new Certate in your hand, its solid feel will have you hooked. Daiwa claim the new Certate to be, “…the smoothest, most powerful reel Daiwa has ever released.” Digi Gear II has been revamped along with the silent oscillation system. Of course, the Certate is sealed to within an inch of its life with Magseal technology, making it one of the most durable high tech reels on the market today. The list of impressive inclusion outlined below is comprehensive to say the least.
The Certate small sizes for sale listed below cover every style of inshore angling but will, of course, appeal directly to the lure angler. The 1003, 2004 and 2506 are finesse models, perfectly suited for hitting the fresh chasing Trout and Bass. They are also ideal for all of your finesse style lure work in the salt. They’re a special for the Bream enthusiast fishing ultra-light with soft plastics, cranks, vibes and the like. You’ll see many a tournament pro with a Certate in their hands. Refining your reel choice from these 3 models will be determined by line class.
The 2500, 2508PE and 2510RPE-H, cover all other inshore spin applications providing 7kg of ATD (Automatic Tournament Drag) for serious pulling power. Again, reel the selection is about matching kit tightly to application. Line class will drive your choice with the added option of going high speed with the 2510RPE-H.
To say the Daiwa Certate Reel is top shelf is somewhat of an understatement. It’s the best fishing has to offer. Bursting with Daiwa’s flagship technology, it is the pinnacle of their spin reel design and engineering.
