Daiwa NewEra SLR 9ft, 5wt Fly Rod

“Cast further and with more accuracy” was the brief to the Daiwa team when it set about creating the NewEra SLR range of rods. So, as you can imagine, there is a lot of technology involved in this 9ft, 5-wt, four-piece model.
Torque control and power conversion are important factors to distance and accuracy, and this rod has been designed around a foundation of X45 bias carbon technology, where two directions of the high-grade carbon sheet used have each been manipulated into 45 degrees. This effectively transmits the energy and compression evenly around the blank, which resists twisting during casting. This gives more precise line control, directional change, accuracy and distance.

The innovative over-cap system allows the rod to internally maintain a constant taper profile. The over-cap joints on the NewEra do not increase in diameter at each female joint and then reduce quickly, they are shaped evenly and constant, which results in a purer power transfer on the cast. The rod will also comfortably handle a line rating either side of that indicated.

It features titanium SiC guides combined with single-leg snakes to ensure slick line travel, a travel tube with compartments, and an original-owner lifetime guarantee.
