“Aird” is Daiwa’s latest most feature packed reel Daiwa has ever developed in this price range. Built on a solid corrosion resistant graphite frame and side plate, Aird uses many of our innovations like Digigear, ABS, Airbail and Twistbuster in the Aird to deliver class leading performance without breaking the bank balance.

Daiwa AIRD 4000SH Reel and Daiwa Procyon Fishing Rod

Daiwa AIRD 4000SH Reel and Daiwa Procyon Fishing Rod Review

This I took from my blog and put up here. Hope it Helps someone out.

If you are in the market for a new fishing rod to target some inshore Reds, Specks or Flounder this could be something for you.

I was in the market for a new rod after a car wreck I was in took out one of my Team Daiwa rods. I stopped by Oceans East 2 to replace the broken one and saw the Procyon line of rods and made the purchase for a 7 ft medium heavy action rod. I paired this rod with a Daiwa AIRD 4000SH. An excellent reel with 9 ball bearing, 6-2-1 gear ratio and light weight. Over the last week I have been able to give them some good fish getting action in the morning and around lunch time to get a good feel for it and I wasn't disappointed. With the features built into this rod like Minima black ring guides, a durable IM-7 graphite rod blank, micro pitch taping blank and Minima real seat with a woven carbon fiber hood this rods performance will speak for itself. Together this rod and reel combo is light weight, comfortable in your hands and will help any angler land there catch in the boat. You will be happy you got them.
