Features: Dark Water rods are a new line of offshore fishing rods manufactured at our own Daiwa factory and designed for seasoned East Coast anglers. Beautiful in look and feel, these twenty-one rods in the series, perform even better. Local guides, tournament anglers, tackle shops employees, and owners, with years of regional knowledge, contributed to the design, execution, and performance. The species-specific blanks, created for use on Kingfish, Sailfish, and other east coast species, are configured for conventional and spinning reels.

 Dark Water rods have species-specific lengths and actions for Tournament Sailfish as well as Tournament Kingfish models. The Tournament Kingfish models come with a revolutionary carbon fiber slick-butt for both weight reduction and strength. The DW70 Sailfish Prospect rod is a unique lightweight design specifically created for the tournament sailfish anglers with a thin wall blank design and a lightweight guide train to reduce fatigue at the rail holding the rod waiting for the blind strike or drop-back.

The slight, parabolic bend puts the stroke on gamefish of all sizes. State-of-the-art, X-45 Bias technology creates a powerful blank yet prevents twisting when the rod loads up.

The EVA Grip is sure, comfortable, and equal to the rigors of everyday saltwater use. The rear grip can also be customized to suit the angler’s preference. Light and strong GRC Butt Cap keeps the rod’s weight at a minimum. The FUJI Backstop Reel Seat utilizes a locking nut that prevents premature reel loosening. All Kingfish models and Spinning models come equipped with Fuji Aluminum Oxide Guides. 

The conventional rod designs are well-suited for the new Saltiga LD and BG MQ, reels. Quality of blank and components is backed up by a 5-year limited warranty. If you are a dedicated East Coast angler, then you owe yourself a look at the latest line of locally designed Dark Water offshore fishing rods with a beautiful look and a performance to match.
