Daiwa Morethan Branzino 3012H

Few reels had the looks, strength and refinement of the legendary Morethan Branzino released in 2008. An amalgamation of the best spin reel technology Daiwa had to offer, the Branzino was cutting edge design cloaked in a black, industrial styled amour. Offering unrivalled power and precision it was a perfect marriage between beauty and brawn.

Fleeting like a supernova the Branzino was gone within a few short years. That was however until now because the legend has returned, and it’s back with the same swagger, advanced designs, and eye catching good looks. Dressed in black and with a stylish gold allure the Branzino is back, which means it’s time to get back in black.

The Body Beautiful

An all-metal high rigid aluminum body is the foundation of the Branzino with its rock solid construction providing an in-movable housing for the Branzino’s groundbreaking internals. Rigid, strong and highly durable the unyielding body allows for seamless gear function and prevents twisting when the reel is under load and results in greater cranking force.

The heart of the all-metal body is Daiwa’s technologically advanced Hyper Digital Gear system. This highly evolved drive system features a high precision cutting technique that achieves perfect gear meshing and ultra smooth performance. The gears are made from a new age alloy, an ultra strong, corrosion resistant material that is lighter and stronger than any gear we have developed before. This reduction in weight allows larger gears to be used, in-turn achieving greater gear and reel durability.

Perfectly Sealed

Few technologies have delivered a wave of design change like the Mag Seal has, and the new Branzino reaps the benefits of this technological leap forward. Developed by NASA, Mag Seal is a revolutionary system that involves scientifically designed magnetized oil that forms an impenetrable seal that prevents, dust, water and salt intrusion, and eliminates oil spray associated with traditional non-magnetized seals. First introduced in the 2010 Certate where it was used to deliver unprecedented rotor bearing protection, the Branzino sees Mag Seal technology adopted to new levels, and is used in the line roller, rotor and either side of the main gear set. Ultimate protection and performance go hand in hand in the all-new Daiwa Branzino.

Floating on Air

The ultimate reel needs the ultimate rotor, and the Air Rotor is exactly that.

Lighter, stronger and more balanced than any rotor system that’s come before, ‘Air Rotor’ features a Zaion made, precision engineered arch that provides exceptional line roller support and 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. Strength, balance and lightness are all realized with the new ‘Air Rotor’.

Getting Spool

The carbon infused stylings of the first Branzino return, and wow with the new gold inspired hybrid spool. The carbon look isn’t purely for fashion purposes though, with the strong, rigid, lightweight behavioral traits of carbon an insight into the unflinching strength of the Branzino spool.

Add the line taming, long cast inducing benefits of ABS II to the spool’s expansive list of strengths and you have a spool that is as equally impressive in the hand as it is on the eye.

Cross Wrap and Twister Buster II further enhance the package, delivering unrivalled line control, reduced line dig-in and twist and increased line pick-up and casting distance.

Daiwa’s famous UTD (Ultimate Tournament Drag) offers fingertip control and unrelenting stopping power to control the toughest and nastiest fish going around. With silky smooth start up and stopping power to burn you’ll never get caught out with the Branzino’s Ultimate Tournament Drag.

The New Super Models

You’ll soon find you favourite super model in the Branzino range, with two awe-inspiring models to choose from.

The 2510R-PE features the spool and rotor of a 2500 matched to the body and gearing of a 3000. Compact and ultra powerful this is the little dog capable of dishing out some serious damage in a big fight. With 7kg of drag, a 4.8:1 retrieve ration, 15 ball bearings, and 200metres (PE 1) of line capacity this is the reel that punches well above its weight and takes no prisoners.

The high-speed model of the range, the 3012H is speed and strength combined, with an impressive 95cm of line retrieved with each revolution of the handle. With 15 bearings, 7kg of drag, and a staggering 200metres (PE 1.5) of line capacity and a weight of 280grams the 3012H is the ultimate high-speed workhorse.

Indestructible, indismissable, and totally enigmatic the new Branzino is design brilliance like only Daiwa can deliver. The legend continues with the all-new Daiwa Branzino.
