Daiwa Certate SW Reel

  • Here's a reel that combines the best parts of the 19 Certate LT and the 20 Saltiga to produce an outstanding heavy-duty saltwater reel ready for hard-hitting action, the 21 Daiwa Certate SW Reel!

    Replacing the long-standing Catalina, Certate SW shares it’s Monocoque (MQ) body with the famous 20 Saltiga. The single-piece body removes the requirement of a traditional side plate and screw system, replacing that with an engine plate which houses the incredibly large G1 Duralumin drive gear, also shared with the 20 Saltiga.

    Equipped with Daiwa’s Zaion rotor design, Certate SW is lightweight and strong. Zaion's lightweight construction makes the rotation of Daiwa Certate SW incredibly light & responsive and also delivers an end result of up to 40 grams of weight saving when compared to 20 Saltiga.

    Certate SW comes equipped with a Magseal line roller and Magseal body, which combined with the MQ construction means that Certate SW is supremely well sealed to the elements, giving anglers the confidence that the reel will not let them down.

    Certate SW’s multi-layer carbon drag delivers ten times increased drag durability compared to 16 Catalina. The new washer design combined with the aluminium radiation drag knob increases heat dissipation improving drag performance under heavy load.

    High speed models come equipped with a soft-touch hi-grip egg shaped knob which delivers grip and comfort for the sweeping motions of working a surface lure. Slow speed models have an EVA Power Round Knob suitable for the up & down working of vertical jigs.

    Available in an 8000 size through to an 18000 size, there's a Daiwa Certate SW reel for all heavy duty spinning offshore anglers.


    • Monocoque Body - A symmetrical, one-piece frame utilising an engine plate with the gears embedded within the frame. This adds rigidity to the reel, reducing flex and twist under load, and creates a sealed mechanism. The elimination of a conventional side plate also allows for a larger main gear to be used, which significantly improves reel power, torque and longevity.
    • LC-ABS (Long-Cast ABS) - 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.
    • 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.
    • G1 Duraluminium Drive Gear - New gear design combined with the G1 Duraluminium material creates the pinnicle of gear strength and precision. The gear design reduces the amount of wear, including twist and deformation to both the drive & pinion gears. New gear design combined with MQ body creates the pinnacle of saltwater spinning reels.
    • 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.
    • CRBB - Lasting 12 times longer than standard stainless steel bearings Daiwa’s CRBBs feature specially treated stainless steel, and a protective shield on the bearing race that seals out sand, fine grit, salt crystals and other abrasives. The result is a longer-lasting bearing that’s protected from the corrosive elements that destroy traditional bearings.
    • Infinite Anti Reverse - Daiwa’s advanced system that limits rearward back play handle movement to almost zero for solid hook sets with less shock to the reel.
    • Magsealed Line Roller - A Magsealed bearing protects one of the hardest working and exposed areas of a spin reel.
    • Magsealed Body - Ultimate protection is delivered to the engine room of the reel with a magnetised oil seal located on the main shaft of the reel’s rotor shutting the door to the elements and unwanted intruders like dust, water and salt.
    • EVA Knob - Delivering enhanced angler comfort and contact, EVA knobs provide optimum contact in wet conditions.
    • Air Bail - A hollow tubular stainless steel bail that delivers maximum rigidity and strength with minimum weight.
    • Twistbuster II - Line-twist reduction system for spin reels that features a tapered line roller to reduce line twisting.
    • Silent Oscillation - Silent Oscillation combines Digigear drive technology with dampening washes for noise free operation.
