Striking in black and gold and featuring Daiwa's Aluminium Round Knob (ARK), the BG MQ ARK Reel is loaded with all the innovation and technologies of the 20 BG MQ.
The MQ body features a completely screwless body design, which eliminates potential entry points for water and grime, and significantly enhances overall body strength. By replacing the side plate with a machined aluminium engine plate that screws directly into the reel body, MQ reels can maximise the internal space made available by using larger size drive gears than before.
The MQ body construction not only has the obvious benefits of a stronger & more compact body design, it also delivers an increase in gear durability thanks to absolute zero movement of drivetrain components once installed inside an MQ body. Weather-sealing is also significantly improved, with seals visible in multiple locations throughout the reel, Daiwa BG MQ ARK is built for the harshest of environments.
The drag in the BG MQ ARK reel has been improved both in maximum capacity but also in smooth overall performance, drastically reducing the friction of the Carbon ATD drag.
Casting performance has also been improved with the implementation of Long Cast ABS (LC-ABS) spool design. LC-ABS spool design improves line flow from the spool, resulting in increased casting distances across the board with both heavy & light lines.
Throughout the BG MQ ARK range, improvements have been made specific to the size of each reel to maximise their performance and overall appeal to each target market.
Grab gold medal performance and looks with the new BG MQ ARK. Available in 5000-20000 sizing.
Monocoque Body: MQ Body takes reel design to the next level. The MQ system does not require a conventional side plate, instead using an engine plate to screw directly to the body. Eliminating the need for screws to hold a body cover in place. MQ body improves the strength of the reel, it also improves the water resistance of the body and allows a larger diameter drive gear to be installed
Metal Alloy Body: Rock solid in strength and performance, alloy is tailor made for Australian conditions and allows a reel to be created that is light, yet strong, and supremely rigid and highly corrosion resistant
ATD Drag: Daiwa’s Automatic Tournament Drag uses an improved drag grease that exhibits a low viscosity at rest, yet becomes more viscous immediately after drag start-up. This reduces initial drag start-up inertia and combined with the structural changes of the ATD Drag System results in a smoother drag from the initial hook up
Air Rotor: Lighter, stronger and more balanced than any rotor system that’s come before, ‘Air Rotor’ delivers a great leap forward in rotor design and function and delivers the ultimate line roller support. Made from Zaion and featuring a redesigned arch that disperses pressure to the lower section of the rotor to reduce stressing and flexing, the design is further enhanced with a hollowed-out construction reducing weight, while increasing reel sensitivity and rotational balance
ABS Long Cast Spool: Compared to conventional spools, the LC-ABS has been shown to increase the average flight distance by approx. 5% due to its reduced weight and modified shape
