Daiwa Free Swimmer 5000 Fishing Reel


The Free Swimmer features an Air Rotor that stands out for its balance, toughness, and sensitivity. Its arched profile and 15% weight reduction compared to standard rotors offers optimal winding smoothness while eliminating vibration thanks to a lowered center of gravity. Its waterproof, carbon Automatic Tournament Drag (ATD) system uses an improved drag grease with low viscosity at rest that becomes more viscous immediately after drag start-up. The result is a super-smooth drag with low initial inertia and beast-stopping power. The Free Swimmer has an alloy sideplate that features Digigear technology. Compared to most of the competition, the gears are between 20% to 40% larger and have a bigger tooth pattern, resulting in longer gear life, up to three times that of competitive reels. Machined Aluminum Screw-In Handle with a Power Round EVA knob for generating extra leverage, plus an O-ring sealing system to ensure high-quality saltwater performance.
