Rod Technology


AGS® Air Guide System

With the AGS carbon fibre guides (AGS = Air Guide System) DAIWA presents an innovation, which heralds a new era of rod construction technology.

The AGS guides have a carbon fibre frame – AGS guides therefore are considerably more light weight as for instance a Fuji Titanium guide, which is one of the world’s most lightweight guides. The reduced weight optimizes the rod action. The rod gets essentially faster and resiles clearly faster. Additionally the use of carbon fiber framed guides reduces vibration of the guides during the cast – more precise casts are the consequence.

Who ever takes a rod with AGS guides in the hand will realize immediately the dramatic difference to conventional guides and actions.

X45® Carbon Fibre

Special carbon fibre material for the improvement of the torsion-resistance. Conventional carbon fibres are always layered in a 90° angle - the new X45 material features a 45° angle and is combined with 0° and 90° layered carbon fibres. This construction makes the rods stronger and more distortion-proof.


HVF® Carbon Fibre

In contrast to normal carbon fibre rods with high resin content in the space between the carbon fibres DAIWA HVF (High Volume Fibre) rods are made of a carbon fibre compound with less resin, called HVF.

Since resin has a high weight, rods made of HVF are more condensed, more light weight and feature a faster action.


SVF® Carbon Fibre

In contrast to HVF carbon fibre rods SVF (Super Volume Fibre) carbon fibre rods are more sensitive and light weight, since they feature less resin content.

The action is ultra fast and the notorious torque is reduced to a minimum.



V-Joint is a special spigot joint, where the spigot and the blank around the spigot are made of a special, exclusively for DAIWA made BIAS carbon fibre material.

The carbon fibres follow a 45-degree angle. The consequence is higher strain resistance and an improved bending curve.

  • Bias carbon technology

  • Smooth bending curve

  • Fluent blank recovery

  • Ideal stress distribution
