Luvias DA Custom is a reel with lightness beyond imagination, strength beyond comprehension and a body that’s completely corrosion resistant. The secret of its strength and durability lies in a new, ground breaking technology that will change the future of the modern fishing reel – Zaion.

Zaion is a brand new type of material, simply explained it is a high density carbon resin. Zaion combines many of the characteristics of traditional materials used in reel manufacture – the low weight, strength and versatility of Aluminium or Zinc, the rigidity, corrosion resistance and affordability of FRP (fibre resin plastic).

The new Zaion material replaces glass fibres with carbon fibres to create an extremely rigid, strong material. The material is first cast then machined to create a body has exhibits the same precision and strength as a magnesium or an aluminium body. Yet it is the same weight as magnesium but fully corrosion resistant.

In 2007 Daiwa released a new ‘all-rounder reel’ – Luvias and set the standard for all to follow. Luvias was huge success and now Daiwa Australia is proud to release the new Australian version, the Luvias DA Custom.

The new Luvias spinning reels with Zaion and Real Four technology delivers enhanced performance almost equal to Daiwa’s flag ship models. This highly precision machined body, is equivalent to Daiwa’s famous Air Metal technology, it is not only light and tough but shows superior performance far beyond any other reel material available today.

Daiwa’s Real Four design reels set the standard for the future of spinning reels. The engineering precision is flawless. Just one turn of the handle reveals the effortless, fluid motion of 7 bearings working together with Digigear II for optimum meshing of speed, power and durability.

The sound of the oscillation is not just quiet its non-existent, with a fully dampened gear and drive to eliminate unnecessary noise and vibration. Daiwa’s levelwind system lays line evenly in a cross wrapped pattern to prevent dig-in under pressure and eliminates casting loops, while the sealed drag stays dry as water and drains quickly and easily from other parts of the reel.

A true legend, with its computer designed Zaion body, body cover and rotor, super strong, yet ultra-lightweight Air Bail, ABS Air Spool with cut-proof, titanium nitride lip and lifetime bail spring, its no wonder that Luvias is the future of the modern spinning reel.

i paired this reel with gloomis imx 2-6lb rod

field tested this rod on 3rd august 2010 at PRPP

landed 3 fishes on this setup

1 kbl 2.95kg
1 ack 1.15kg
1 ack around 1.2kg

kbl jumped in out of water at least 5 times upon hook up and i was still able to reel in without much effort

line out was smooth,cranking power is there

outlook wise...wat do you say?
its an exclusive aussie model which i had the luck of bring back

costed me about 325aud

for that price convert to sgd the daiwa fuego 1000 size would be a good buy though slightly heavier for the fuego at a very negligible weight diff
