In 2004 we introduced the Real Four Concept in the original Certate - Real engine, Real control, Real endurance, Real custom, setting the new standard in spinning reel design and innovation. Since then, Certate has continually evolved and developed through several incarnations to become the Worlds most advanced spinning reel. Certate´s history is epoch making - a revolutionary progress. The new revolution begins with 16 Certate.
The first thing you notice when pick up the 16 Certate is the solid feel. The machined super alloy body and Zaion rotor is incredibly strong yet lightweight. Its precision engineering supports the re-vamped high accuracy Digigear II drive and silent oscillation system to produce smoother rotary efficency and increased cranking power like never before. Combine this with MagSealed and MagSealed ball bearings and the 16 Certate is the smoothest, most powerful reel DAIWA has ever released.
Employing DAIWA´s ultimate reel technology - MagSealed, MagSealed bearings, MagSealed line roller, ATD, Zaion, Airbail (one piece construction), Digigear II and an all new Air Rotor, each Certate is individually constructed and made with the highest quality materials available.
Designed for the serious angler, the 2016 Certate sets the standard for the ultimate and future in spinning reel technology.
