Daiwa Caldia Kix 4000

My fishing activity has reduced drastically. My last trip was to Hutan Melintang and my next trip would be to a shipwreck near the Indonesian border and also a trip to Pulau Sembilan during the Raya break. In the mean time, I have been spending quite a lot of time in Tightlines Sportfishing. In exactly one month time, they would be closing down. So I have been there a few times to narrow down the items I would like to purchase. My latest addition to my family of reels is the Daiwa Caldia Kix 4000.

Here are some information that I managed to find from Daiwa Australia Website.

Built on a solid one-piece aluminium frame and sideplate, the Caldia Kix exhibits incredible strength and lightweight power. The rigid Hardbodyz framework holds the Digigear drive train in place even under the heaviest load.
  • Real Four
  • Aluminium body and side plate
  • Digigear drive system
  • Airbail
  • Twistbuster II
  • ABS machined aluminium spool with titanium nitride lip
  • Titanium nitride ball bearing line roller
  • Gyro balanced
  • Infinite anti-reverse
  • Machined aluminium handle
  • 6 ball bearings (inc. 2 CRBB)
  • Hyper tournament water resistant drag system
  • Washable design
Model Gear Ratio #Ball Bearings Weight (g) Spool Capacity (m/lbs)
CALDIA KIX 4000 4.9 5+1 355 200m/20lb, 150m/22lb

I plan to load this reel with 30lb of YGK Jigman x4. For my upcoming trip during the Raya break, this reel will be my primary jigging reel. I plan to match this reel with my Abu Conolon light jigging rod.

Enjoy the pictures of the reel.
