Few baitcast reels share the same reputation as the original Daiwa Zillion. A strong and durable bait cast reel capable of handling anything you can throw at it. Zillion has found its place in Australia, where durability and strength are of the utmost importance.
The brand-new 21 Zillion SV is the first total redesign of Zillion in many years. The heart of it all is a brand-new technology HYPERDRIVE Design. A concept incorporating multiple aspects of reel design to deliver a baitcast reel with few peers.
HYPERDRIVE Digigear is the next evolution of baitcast gear design, taking Daiwa’s Digigear concept to the next level to produce a smoother and stronger reeling sensation with a significant 60% improvement to gear durability.
HYPER Double Support improves the support of the pinion gear. This support in turn helps to extend gear life and increase winding power under load.
HYPER Tough Clutch is a redeveloped thumb bar design which is more durable and stronger than previous variations.
HYPER Armed Housing is the use of Magnesium or Aluminium frame and gear side plate design which holds everything in perfect alignment.
Zillion’s other brand-new feature is an evolution of Daiwa’s SV Concept. SV BOOST is a brand-new two-stage SV concept design that significantly increases casting distance in the latter part of the casting sequence. Zillion’s two-stage SV BOOST design delivers the precise amount of breaking resistance at each stage of the cast, allowing the angler to perfectly account for varying scenarios they may face when on the water.
SV BOOST will have anglers experiencing effortless long-casting performance and the SV Concept will mean that Zillion is as versatile as ever.
Daiwa’s revolutionary T-Wing System addresses the issue of traditional line guide/level wind systems constricting line flow by delivering a T-shaped line guide that is larger, wider and less restrictive. TWS allows line to exit freely from the spool with minimal line angle, minimal friction and constriction, thereby reducing line noise and backlash, and delivering more accurate and longer casts.
A system that combines ultra smooth low inertia with ultimate fish stopping power. UTD combines advanced carbon washers, alloy and stainless steel drag plates with specially designed grease for ultra-smooth performance.
HYPERDRIVE Design consists of four of the key pillars. Hyper Armed Housing, Hyper Tough Clutch, Hyper Double Support & HYPERDRIVE Digigear.
SV BOOST is a brand-new two-stage SV concept design which significantly increases casting distance in the latter part of the casting sequence. The two-stage SV BOOST design delivers the precise amount of breaking resistance at each stage of the cast, allowing the angler to perfectly account for varying scenarios when on the water. In reels equipped with the SV BOOST - when casting a lure, the spool structure may exhibit a clicking sound. In order to maximize speed and strength of spool inductor which controls the brake, and to maximize the casting effect by a wider range of motion the clicking sound tends to be louder. It is important to note that this is not a quality issue. Boost has a two-stage motion, which means the clicking sound may be heard twice, and the volume of the sound will differ depending on the casting strength.
