22 Free Swimmer Bite'N' Run 8000 Spinning Reel - FRSW8000
A return to the foray of Bite’N’Run reels with Daiwa’s new FREE SWIMMER BR. Bite’N’Run is a key technology for keen live or dead bait anglers allowing fish to take baits under minimal line tension to ensure a solid hookset is achieved.
Designed in collaboration between Daiwa USA, Daiwa Australia, Daiwa New Zealand, and alongside Japanese engineers, FREE SWIMMER BR is a product five years in the making and a testament to Daiwa’s commitment to providing the best products to suit local conditions.
Anglers will set the Bite’N’Run tension by adjusting the dial on the bottom of the reel, a wide range can be set to suit unweighted baits for finicky feeders such as whiting, up to quite strong settings suitable to live baiting large baits for hard-fighting predators like Kingfish & Mackeral.
FREE SWIMMER BR is built off a strong & sturdy carbon composite frame and Air Rotor. The internals has been carefully sealed through careful design and implementation of rubber seals to make FREESWIMMER a true Saltwater Bite’N’Run reel. Careful attention to detail was paid throughout the design and prototype stages to make FREE SWIMMER BR capable of handling even the largest of New Zealand Kingfish & Snapper.
FREE SWIMMER BR is equipped with a host of regular Daiwa technologies including Air Rotor, ATD Drag, Tough Digigear & more to round out the best-performing Bite’N’Run reel Daiwa has ever produced.
BITE N RUN
Bite’N’Run is a key technology for keen live or dead bait anglers allowing fish to take baits under minimal line tension to ensure a solid hook set is achieved. The rear drag can be easily adjusted to provide optimum tension for each scenario.
Lighter, stronger, and more balanced than any rotor system that’s come before, ‘Air Rotor’ delivers a great leap forward in rotor design and function and delivers the ultimate line roller support. Made from Zaion and featuring a redesigned arch that disperses pressure to the lower section of the rotor to reduce stressing and flexing, the design is further enhanced with a hollowed-out construction reducing weight while increasing reel sensitivity and rotational balance.
Daiwa’s Automatic Tournament Drag uses an improved drag grease that exhibits a low viscosity at rest, yet becomes more viscous immediately after drag starts up. This reduces initial drag start-up inertia and combined with the structural changes of the ATD Drag System results in a smoother drag from the initial hook up.
Further evolution of its predecessor Digigear, Tough Digigear is our brand new digitally designed, machine-cut gearing system that ensures ultimate gear precision, rotational smoothness, and strength.
