Daiwa Fishing Rods

Since 1958, Daiwa has been producing both fishing rods and reels. Daiwa entered the United States market in 1995 after finding initial success with their open-faced reels that were designed to fit more fishing line on a reel. Daiwa also produces several different types of fishing rods.

What are the different types of Daiwa fishing rods available?

There are six main categories of Daiwa rods, which are:

  • Daiwa freshwater rods: These rods from Daiwa come in a variety of lengths for fishing in different freshwater depths.
  • Daiwa ultralight specialty rods: Daiwa makes several different lightweight fishing rods, including those designed for casting from a boat, trolling and spinning rods, and specialty rods with casting capabilities specifically designed for trout fishing.
  • Daiwa freshwater specialty rods: These rods are designed specifically to catch one type of fish, with specialty rods for walleye and muskie.
  • Daiwa fly rods: The company makes one line of rods for casting with flies. The rods feature medium-fast action, a natural cork handle, and aluminum-oxide guides.
  • Daiwa saltwater rods: Daiwa produces a variety of rods designed for fishing in saltwater, with one rod dedicated to catching swordfish and others for trolling and kite fishing.
  • Daiwa surf and jetty rods: These rods are a carbon-graphite and fiberglass structure specifically designed for casting beyond the surf or jetty.
How do you know which Daiwa rod you need?

There are many things to take into account, so following a process is helpful.

  • Select the type of fishing rod: There are many types of fishing rods, so make sure to consider where you will be using the rod and which fish species you will be using it for.
  • Select the material: When fishing for medium or small fish, you might choose a carbon graphite Daiwa rod because it's a heavy-duty material that is also sensitive to fish bites, so it provides the reaction time needed to catch hungry fish like trout, bass, and walleye.
  • Select the ring guides: Daiwa offers rods with anywhere from 7 to 10 guides. The higher the number of ring guides on a rod, the lower the risk of a tangled fishing line.
  • Select the handle: The company makes rods with non-slip grips as well as natural cork grips.
  • Select the weight: Choose a rod from Daiwa's ultralight line for ease of casting, or select a regular lightweight rod from one of their other collections.
  • Select the length: Daiwa offers Shorter rods for fishing from a boat or when shore casting near wooded areas. However, they also offer longer rods for fishing from the beach or a jetty.
