No doubt the Daiwa Cygnus is one of the best mid-range ultra-light saltwater reels available today.
Featuring Daiwa’s performance-delivering Digigear gear technology ensures ultimate gear precision, smoothness and integrity. The digitally engineered gear design imparts a perfect mesh between ultra-tough alloy drive gears and marine bronze pinion gears, for optimised speed, power, durability and smoothness.

The Cygnus's utilisation of Daiwa’s design innovations doesn’t end there with the game changing Air Rotor providing enhanced looks, design and performance. Lighter, stronger and more balanced and sensitive 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 ABS spool on the Cygnus provides trouble free casting. The reverse taper of the spool enables greater line control and increased casting distance while minimising unwanted line loops and tangles to ensure optimum casting and line management performance.Twist Buster and Air Bail also work seamlessly together to manage and feed line unencumbered and untangled onto the spool, resulting in increased line pick-up and maximum casting distance.

A major drawback with many drag systems is that they are not smooth at the beginning of the drag. ATD rectifies this issue. ATD works like this, at the beginning of a strike the drag starts smoothly, then increases to its pre-set drag rating in a fraction of a second, thus eliminating line breakage at the strike.
Magseal uses magnetised oil in conjunction with magnets, the oil attaches itself to the metal surfaces to form a seal. Being magnetized this lubrication system avoids any friction, reduces dust or water intrusion, eliminates oil spray and improves reel life expectancy.
