The 2016 EM MS series of spinning reels that start from size 2004 to 4000, is designed with the objective of achieving cost effectiveness, smoothness, whilst still light weight and reliable to withstand the harshness of saltwater fishing.

The EM MS comes packed with Daiwa’s latest technological advancements and features that translates into a fishing reel that surpasses it design objectives whilst exuding a quality only achievable from precision engineering.

Incorporating Daiwa’s state-of-the-art reel technology, each 2016 EM MS comprises the following features:

Magseal - a magnetic seal formed from the use of a membrane of magnetic lubrication and magnets to create a saltwater barrier to reduce water penetration into the shaft housing of the reel. Being magnetized this lubrication system reduces any friction, minimise dust intrusion whilst eliminates oil spray and improving the life expectancy of the reel.

DS5 - a fibre reinforced material that is used in the construction of the rotor to keep weight to a minimum, whilst achieving rigidity.

Zaion - A high density carbon composite material that is uses for reel body construction, that has the same strength as magnesium, is 20% stronger than Nylon/ABS material and is 50% lighter than Aluminium.

Air Bail - A one piece construction hollow tubular stainless steel bail arm for maximum rigidity and strength with minimum weight. With no protrusions, slack line from a cast, falls effortlessly, down the bail onto the line roller as the rotor is turned, without snagging or hanging up.

ABS II - An anti-backlash system that comprises a re-designed feature of the spool that allows line to peel away in larger loops when casting to prevent backlash, which translates to improved casting distance.

ATD (Automatic Tournament Drag) - A redesigned spool support that increases the support of the spool across the entire length of the main shaft that helps to dissipate drag washer pressure more efficiently to reduce pulsing of the drag when fighting fish.

Rotor Brake - A braking system that keeps the rotor stationary when the bail is open.

Twist Buster II - A redesigned line roller that reduces line twist and friction.
