Looks like Daiwa want some more of our money :)

They have released what looks like a Magsealed TDR with a T shaped handle under the guise of the 20 Tournament QD, more likely the spiritual successor of the TDX.

And what looks like a Cast'izm with a one touch folding handle and spare spool under the guise of the 20 Whisker 25QDA.

I wouldn't expect much change from £300 for either of those, there are more new reels but they seem to be the TOTR headliners for us Coarse anglers.

This one tickled me.

What do you get if you cross a:

With a:

And bodge on a one touch folding wooden handle? This apparently....

Spose it don't look too bad, but if it's anything like the god awful Emcast BR LT then give it a wide berth.

That looks like it is supposed to be a modern take on an old 2600.

For some reason they are cult reels in specialist circles; I think they are pretty average.......
