Fishing tackle giants Daiwa release new TDSR pole range

Tackle giant Daiwa is to launch four new match poles this week, Angling Times can exclusively reveal.

The new line-up – known as the TDSR range – will cost between £150 and £800, and will be unveiled at its Doncaster trade show later today.

According to Daiwa, the range is based around ‘performance and package’ with the company tapping into the technology behind its flagship poles with the addition of extensive extras supplied as standard.

All the new poles boast features found on the more expensive Daiwa poles, such as a Slide Easy finish from the No5 section upwards, Section Alignment system and High Modulus Construction (HMC) which combines with Daiwa’s long section design to offer increased rigidity and strength at longer lengths.

“With top performers like the Airity, Pro, Spectron, Whisker and G8 we have proved that our design and technology are cutting edge,” said Stephen McCaveney of Daiwa UK.

“The new TDSR collection has been designed using key values from these proven winners. You can expect a superior performance combined with outstanding durability and features such as a Slide Easy finish and Section Alignment system.

Each model has also been supplied with a combination of spares and extras that give brilliant added value.”

Angling Times will be the first to test the new poles – look out for an exclusive report soon.
