About the Daiwa New Era SLR Fly Rod
The designers brief was simple: create a fly rod range that would both cast further and more accurately. Not much to ask!
With all rods torque control and power conversion are the keys to distance and accuracy. The NewEra SLR's have been designed around a foundation of Bias Carbon technology. The two directions of the high grade carbon sheet have been manipulated into 45 degree effectively transmitting the energy and compression evenly around the blank but resisting twist during loading.
This application of our own Bias material effectively 'doubles' the control level of blank twist and buckling. Combined with a responsive and crisp recovery in the front end of each NewEra delivers notably more precise line control, directional change and improved energy conservation: accuracy and distance all in one.
The V-Joint system also offers a hidden benefit. The innovative over-cap system allows the rod to internally maintain a Constant Taper Profile. Unlike normal over cap joints the NewEra does not increase in diameter at each female joint and then reduce quickly. It is shaped even and constant. This results in a purer power transfer.
Each rod was subjected to exhaustive testing and fine tuning by Hywel Morgan ensuring that each one not only delivers the intended line rating but has the ability to comfortably handle a rating range either side of that indicated. Titanium SiC guides combined with single leg snakes ensure slick line travel and to round the challenge off we achieved all this in a four section assembly.

About the Daiwa New Era Fly Reel
The Daiwa New Era Fly Reel is a world first and takes the cartridge spool system to a whole new level.
Each cartridge is entirely reversible and made from precision machined aluminium, finished off with colour coded anodising. Location is achieved via a recessed channel which meets three spring loaded ball bearings set within the spool.
A central, screw down cap secures the spool into place. When loosened the cap remains in place ensuring it cannot be lost.
The disc drag system is powered by carbon washers for smooth powerful line release. Adjustment is made easier thanks to a knurled, easy grip dial.
This listing is for the reel with a single red spool, we have a separate product listing for the reel plus a set of spools. Spools can also be purchased separately.
About the Daiwa Trout Fly Line
Assisting you on the weight forward floaters we have applied a colour change where the tip meets the running line. Two colour options available.
On the double taper version the ‘mid point’ is also indicated by a distinct colour change. You have the option to switch direction.
For those occasions where you need the front of the fly line to be submerged we have developed a ‘Inter Tip’. Designed around a weight forward profile the ‘tip’ will slowly sink at ½” to ¾” per second. Its translucent green colour provides that added touch of stealth. The change to the brighter, opaque section indicates the floating running line.
The full length of the intermediate is a darker, translucent green and is designed to sink at 1 ¼” to 1 ½” per second.
The medium sinker, brown throughout, will descend at 3” per second and the black ‘fast sink’ version gets you deeper at 5” per second.
All lines are 35yds long, approximately 105ft and are supplied with two mini connectors and a line spool.
