Daiwa Free Swimmer 5000 Bite & Run Spinning Reel

Free Swimmer 5000 Bite & Run Spinning Reel

The Free Swimmer features an Air Rotor that stands out for its balance, toughness, and sensitivity. Its arched profile and 15% weight reduction compared to standard rotors offer optimal winding smoothness while eliminating vibration thanks to a lowered center of gravity.

The Free Swimmer is sold with an alloy sideplate that features Digigear technology. Compared to most of the competition, the gears are between 20% to 40% larger and have a bigger tooth pattern, resulting in a longer gear life of up to three times that of competitive reels. Machined aluminum screw-in handle with a power round EVA knob for generating extra leverage, plus an O-ring sealing system to ensure high-quality saltwater performance.


ATD Drag

Daiwa’s Automatic Tournament Drag uses an improved drag grease that exhibits a low viscosity at rest yet becomes more viscous immediately after drag start-up. This reduces initial drag start-up inertia and, combined with the structural changes of the ATD Drag System, results in a smoother drag from the initial hook-up.


Daiwa’s first generation of digitally engineered gear design ensures a perfect mesh between ultra-tough drive gears and pinion gears for optimized speed, power, durability, and smoothness.

Machine Cut Handle

The new handle design is slimmer, more compact, and 50% lighter.
