 Clean New Daiwa Logo
Specs in Japanese & English

 Made where?

 Zaion "Air Rotor"

12lb - 200M
16lb - 150M

 MAG SEALED Chamber & Sealed Handle junction
 Better then any Shimano design (although X-ship is comparable now)

 L to R: Certate 2010, Stradic ci4 4000, Sustain 5000fe
New Certate 3000 handle is much more compact then the 4000 size Shimano Stradic
 Far Right: Van Staal VM150

 No Shaft Bearing

 Cupped lip, much alike Shimano's 2008 design.
Air Bail and bail arm is much stronger then Shimano design.

Over the compact design and muscular feel that Daiwa delivers is preferred over a Shimano design.   One thing I notice is that Daiwa reels seem to have a smaller body but with a bigger spool.  The opposite is with Shimano.  Capacity for this reel is another plus.
