Daiwa EXIST Spinning Reel

Behold the newest of high-end freshwater and inshore spinning reels, Daiwa’s EXIST.

The top-of-the-line freshwater spinning reel features all the bells and whistles and at a suggested retail price of $859.99-$929.99.

“What you find in the EXIST is a flagship freshwater spinning reel designed and manufactured for the most serious of anglers seeking the highest level of performance, weight reduction and rotation,” says Marc Mills, Daiwa Senior Marketing Manager. “We’re proud to offer more than what anglers have been asking for or even expecting in the EXIST.”

For starters, the new EXIST family features an all-new EXIST Air Drive System with ZAION Air Drive Rotor, Air Drive Bail, Air Drive Spool, and Air Drive Shaft. Thanks to ZAION, the new EXIST Air Drive Rotor is 15% lighter, features a screwless design, flush surface, and greatly increased rigidity. The design eliminates design waste without reducing strength. But the largest benefit to the AIR DRIVE ROTOR is the lighter rotation providing you less handle turning resistance.

Z-Man Report

Z-Man SMH Jighead

Z-Man’s New SMH WormZ & SMH Jighead offers a durable, high-floating and durable finesse-style worm that provides more natural action than standard plastic rigs and a jighead that works well in all types of cover.

The Z-Man SMH WormZ and SMH Jighead debuted at last week’s 2022 Bassmaster Classic Expo.

Z-Man’s New SMH WormZThe SMH WormZ has a substantial but slender head and torso, shaped for easy hook penetration, then slims down to a wispy-thin midsection that helps activate the worm’s bulbous, football shaped tail. It can be Texas rigged, fished wacky style, drop-shotted or Carolina rigged.

At 6.5-inches in length, the ultra-lively SMH WormZ presents bass with a natural, unassuming target. Imbued with a 15-percent salt solution, the SMH WormZ offers optimal casting weight, and enhanced taste and texture to assure bass bite and hold on tight.

Z-man GOAT ToadZ

The GOAT ToadZ, a new ElaZtech surface bait built via fan interaction was introduced at the Bassmaster Classic this week.

“It’s really been a labor of love among Z-Man’s vast network of fishing nuts,” notes Z-Man president Daniel Nussbaum. “We’re thrilled to say, sixteen months after inception—angler concepts, rough sketches, prototypes, on-water testing, plus more input and hardcore fishing—the GOAT ToadZ is fully fleshed out and ready to make a splash.”

Among all the unique properties of ElaZtech, explains Nussbaum, the material’s buoyancy proved to be a perfect match for surface-fishing. “One of Z-Man’s most popular baits has been our Hard Leg FrogZ™. It’s been thirteen years since we released that bait—certainly among the most durable topwater toads ever built. Admittedly, anglers today have a lot of toads to choose from. But none of them offer all the advantages of ElaZtech. And we knew we could build a new design from scratch and give anglers something truly special—lively, versatile and incredibly durable on the hook.”
