19. LAGUNA 5BI
The new Laguna 5Bi series is our smoothest highest performing budget reel that we have ever released. Its features, durability and ultra smooth performance that are second to none. Featuring Daiwa’s innovations like Twistbuster II, Silent Oscillation and Infinite anti-reverse, this reel also employs 5 ball bearings, a high speed retrieve ratio and our Digigear II gearing system for ultra smooth rotation and feel. The ABS spool has a maximized core diameter and reversed taper meaning there is 100% useable line, no “dead” line buried deep in the spool, so you can fill it with line right up to the edge of the spool lip without fear of tangles. The rearward taper of the spool’s core helps prevent tangles caused by excessive loops of loosely wound or stiff line falling forward from the spool on the cast. This huge diameter spool lets line flow freely in larger coils and produces less line memory coil. The result is less casting friction for longer, easier casting. For ultra smooth cranking power Laguna uses Daiwa’s Digigear II system, this gear design ensures a perfect mesh between the ultra-tough, drive gear and pinion gear for ultra-smooth rotation and optimized speed, power and durability. Available at most fishing tackle stores country wide and at The Kingfisher in Durban.
