With an evolutionary design that will lead the future of reel technology, the Daiwa Exist Spinning Reel is the flagship option from Daiwa that is truly world-class. With a new ZAION Air Drive Rotor, Daiwa utilized a screw-less design that has flush surfaces and increased rigidity, all while reducing its physical weight by 15%. In conjunction, a new Air Drive Shaft compliments its new rotor that provides enhanced stability and power transfer, giving an ultra smooth and effortless rotation.
For the enthusiast angler looking for the ultimate performance, the Daiwa Exist is it. In this Exist, Daiwa developed an innovative masterpiece to give the angler total control. With its totally redone AIRDRIVE design, Daiwa reduced weight, enhanced its smooth rotation, and gave it even faster response over the previous generation to make this reel their flagship option.

|EXIGLT3000-XH||6.2||10CRBB, 2MSBB, 1RB||36.8||6.2oz||8/220, 10/185||22lbs|
|5.2||10CRBB, 2MSBB, 1RB||

The newly developed AIRDRIVE ROTOR is made from ZAION. Maintaining the strength of the rotor from 18 EXIST, DAIWA has been able to reduce the weight significantly. Designed with focus to create a perfectly round structure, trouble free and flawless rotation have been achieved.
The rotor unit itself has seen a 16% weight reduction compared to the previous model and will set the standard for what future rotor design of small spinning reels will be.
DAIWA has constructed a bail smaller in diameter whilst providing required strength to achieve a further weight reduction to the front unit. In comparison to 18 EXIST, AIRDRIVE BAIL reduces the weight of the bail by 33%.
DAIWA has adjusted the angle of bail setting to improve the line movement into the roller. Careful attention was given to the roller and slider and individual design alterations were done for each size of 22 EXIST, perfectly adjusting the line management for each size of the reel.
Each slide can have its own text and button link. Use it to describe the product, collection, page, etc. that the image depicts.
AIRDRIVE SHAFT has a non contact structure between the mainshaft and the pinion gear. In addition to this, both ends of pinion gear are now supported with bearings to relay the crank power from the handle to the rotor with a higher level of efficiency. By adding high quality collars to the mainshaft, rotational noise has been reduced significantly.
AIRDRIVE SHAFT creates the feel of smooth, quiet rotation and provides anglers with torque and power.
Daiwa implemented several of its latest proventechnologies with this Exist, giving anglers a tough and durable reel that they can have confidence in, yet it still retains a lightweight refined package.
DAIWA’s latest technology MONOCOQUE BODY is made by an integral molding system to create a rigid one piece body. By removing the traditional screws used to attach the sideplate, internal space is maximised within the gear housing. The MQ BODY uses a large diameter engine plate to screw on to the body to seal the internals. The extra space created in the MONOCOQUE BODY allows DAIWA to install a larger diameter drive gear into a smaller size reel. This system instantly creates the more durable reel inside and out.
Perfectly machined drive gear.
The drive gear within any reel is made from 3 key elements which cannot be missed. (Design Creativity, Processing Technology and Premium Quality Material)
22 EXIST consists of all 3 key elements.
The latest digital analysis and machine cut technology is used to create a perfect surface on each tooth of the drive gear. By using the latest premium Duralumin material, precision designs deliver an incredibly smooth rotation quality.
Durability and water resistance.
During the design process of 22 EXIST key areas for water ingress were analyzed. The introduction of MQ body prevents water intrusion within the body, whilst areas of rotation or areas frequently exposed to water have been equipped with MAGSEALED/MAGSEALED BALL BEARING technology. Sections of the reel which are not key rotational areas are equipped with strong rubber seals. Anglers will come to understand this level of quality from 22
New generation drag system.
New ATD TYPE-L drag technology improves the initial drag system response. Lowering the peak drag max upon hook setting. Light tackle fishing especially requires a responsive and sensitive adjustment of the drag pressure.
ATD TYPE-L allows anglers to have more control of the drag without stress during the fight. By not overloading the line and also causing less stress to the fish, powerful fish can be tamed easily with the 22 EXIST.
