Daiwa is the number one brand for fishing reels around the globe. With over 60 years of experience, it is safe to say that Daiwa is an expert when it comes to the production of high quality, high performance tackle, and nothing embodies that more than the Daiwa Infinity X BR. The Daiwa X BR has been the fishing reel of choice for the angler who likes to target the toughest and hardest-fighting big fish on the planet ever since it was released on the market. Packed full of features that put this reel head and shoulders above the rest, this reel is the most comprehensive free-spool that Daiwa has ever produced.
The first thing that you’ll notice about this reel, other than its staggering good looks, is the way that the brand has partnered two of its most impressive technologies in order to create a high performance reel that operates on the precipice of what is possible. The first of these technologies is Daiwa’s innovative double axis BR mechanism. BR stands for Bite ‘n’ Run – Daiwa’s freespool-to-full-drag technology which is operated by a rear lever and allows your catch to take line in a controlled freespool until the moment that you want to engage your drag. This has been partnered with an incredibly effective big pit spool configuration, allowing you to load up your reel with a huge amount of line for an impressive distance casting performance. The 5000 size of the reel can store uo to 370m of 14lb line where as the 5500 can store a whopping 440m of the same line, so you’ll never feel short-changed on the cast. It truly operates on the cutting edge of reel technology.
However, as you might expect from a Daiwa reel, this is by no means the end of the line when it comes to top-end features. Twistbuster II, for example, has been implemented on the line roller of the reel. This virtually eliminates the chance of your line twisting on the cast, ensuring that you can cast out with thin monofilament or braided mainline with equal confidence. A micro-pitch front drag allows you to be as precise as you like when it comes to the intensity of drag that you employ. The rotor of the Daiwa Infinity X BR has been balance using a gyrospin technology, ensuring that the reel can offer the immense winding power that its 4.2:1 gear ratio promises. Infinite anti-reverse eliminates rearward backplay, too, helping you to crank in the very biggest carp that you’re looking to target.
To say that this reel is a performance piece would be an understatement. It has been fitted with five ball bearings, ensuring that it is silky smooth to use and assisting on both the cast and the retrieve. These also prolong the performance life of the reel and eliminate the risk of premature wear and tear with proper reel care. The whole package comes in at a mere 27 oz, too. The perfect weapon for the angler who likes to target the largest fish that the UK has to offer, as well as whole host of the continents biggest species, the Infinity X BR also comes with a free, full specification, spool as standard.
