Daiwa Project T 2020

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

It really is super comfortable. I have larger hands and it does not feel too small.

it looks to be the same seat used on either the heartland or the old tds seat.

is the air sensor the newer fuji pts-type seat? i'm probably going to assemble a rod this winter, and got 1 of those in. i'm pretty sure i can be happy with it from the initial feel of it.
It's my understanding that the new Air Sensor reel seat is a Daiwa exclusive. I like it better than any other reel seat in any previous Daiwa rod family. It is sleek, comfortable, allows for nice blank exposure, doesn't have any annoying protrusions or wings

Is this the new rod you were hinting at?

I noticed on the new 701m/mh RD it says 'blank touch seat', and on the 7011h it says 'double trigger seat'.

Yes; also neither have the “air sensor” written on them like in the photo, but they are essentially the same in appearance. My hustler (mh) looks just like the one in the photo (blank touch) and my jigga stick (h) has a double trigger. I think Dom posted a photo illustrating this difference in one of the RD threads.

It makes me sick to think of all the fish I have missed out on over the years because I didn't have a 10:1. Probably lost a bunch of club tournaments to. :(

If they would have used that titanium on the part of the frame that is matte black it would be money!
