Ultimate casting technology and innovation … the best way to describe Daiwa’s latest superb shore casting rods – Tournament Grinder. Designed as the ultimate rocky shore and beach fishing rod series, the Tournament Grinder’s unique design delivers unparalleled casting performance. At the heart of the Tournament Grinder’s design is our latest design innovation – X45. This new innovation delivers ultimate strength, power, and weightlessness, resulting in a slim blank that eliminates blank twist and massively increases torque and blank recoil. This design allows the blank to return to its straight form quickly, inturn delivering faster acceleration and longer more responsive casting. By combining HVF “High Volume Fibre” carbon with X45 construction we have created a powerful lightweight blank with more responsiveness and sensitivity than ever before.
