Daiwa Longbow X45 DF

Where we have applied bias technology to the advantage of the Basia rod performance, we have mirrored this blank evolution in the shape of the Longbow.

Developed early in 2016 they truly excelled in field testing. The report from Danny read “Just hit the clip at 160 yards with a 4oz lead on the prototype 3.75 x45 Longbow. I could give it more as the rod will take it. They feel light, crisp and powerful; well done!”

In order to harness high ‘potential energy’ for casting we utilised butt diameter as well as material to deliver loading. However the medium taper sees the Longbow release rapidly but with less eye watering speed of the Basia. This recovery is enhanced too by the weight saving from the minima 4 guides.

In addition the four test curves at 12’ we also offer a Floater Special, a Spod and Spod n marker model. 

  • Designed in conjunction with Danny Fairbrass
  • X45 compression zone
  • Minima 4 guides
  • 50mm butt guide (except floater special)
  • Silk Matt low glare finish
  • Fast taper profile
  • Fuji DPS reel seat
  • Profiles NS shrink tube handle
  • Metal butt cap and trim rings
  • Custom build finish throughout
