Daiwa Emblem 45 SCW QD Reel £149.99
Over Two decades on we're a long way down the Emblem evolutionary pathway. Introducing the latest member of the family the Daiwa Emblem 45 SCW QD, The latest addition to the Emblem family has 45 in its name to signify 45mm spool. That 45mm profile is the optimum long-cast profile size and is normally found on much more expensive Daiwa offerings, but it's not just the spool size that makes this a great casting reel. Daiwa has furnished this reel with a reduced-speed oscillation called Slow Cross Wrap, which reduces casting energy during line release there's also a double-lip profile to the spool which has been shown to improve casting distances by more than five per cent. That double lip channels the line to a narrow corridor so it flies smoothly through the rod guides.
So what else do you get with these reels? Well, aside from the fact they look absolutely gorgeous with that sleek matte-black finish, you get Daiwa's proven QD quick drag system and their high-impact line clip which is chunky and really nicely sprung so you won't damage your mainline when hitting the clip. You also get Daiwa's Air Rotor and their DigiGear II internals, plus a machine-cut aluminium handle which is really sturdy and will help you cranky in 104cm of line for every full turn. There are two spools available for these Emblems. This is the C spool, which stands for casting and it's a shallow spool and holds 300m of 0.35mm-diameter line meaning you can fill three reels from a bulk spool of mainline. The other one is the LD, that's the long-distance spool and that holds 530m of the same diameter.
That 45mm spool profile is designed to strip line off as quickly as possible but in an orderly fashion using that double-lip design to channel it through the guides and out towards the horizon.
Terry Edmonds the long-range casting expert and tutor has been putting some of these through their paces recently he told me that he's cast leads over 200m with these reels! He tells me that for the money, and these are sub-£200 reels, remember, there is no better-performing reel on the market he loves that Slow Cross Wrap oscillation and the way they handle. So there we go, these are the Daiwa Emblem 45 SCW QDsSupplied with a shallow C and spare deep LD spool; (300m 0.35mm and 530m 0.35mm). The C spool allows filling of three spools from 1000m.
Retrieval is geared down at 4.9:1 but still cranks up to 104cm per handle turn.

Just bought a set of three of these to replace the old version I had! Such an improvement. These are dare I say it close to the Mighty Daiwa Basia reels without the price tag! If you are in the market for a mid-priced Carp reel don't hesitate with buying the New Emblems!
