A king amongst men, Certate has always set a standard in poise and power, and the release of the Certate LT elevates those traits to a new level. A level of refinement and strength rarely achieved and seldom seen.
Meticulously designed, unwavering in strength, and unmatched in performance and longevity Certate has always been synonymous with innovation and the new Certate LT heralds a new dawn and a new era, where Certate is Next Strong. The Certate LT combines Daiwa’s most advanced technologies and designs to deliver anglers a reel with few peers. Made in Japan, the foundation of the new Certate is its aluminium Monocoque body.
A Monocoque body eliminates the need for a side plate and allows a more rigid body to be made and larger gears to be used for improved winding power and torque. The Certate LT’s forged machine-cut Tough Digigear is 2mm larger in diameter than its closest competitor. Combining the benefits of our MQ Monocoque body, and new gear design, 19 Certate is more durable, smoother & more powerful than all others. 19 Certate’s Monocoque body is our most advanced, lightest and strongest body we’ve ever developed for a Certate.
Strength is one thing, but smoothness of a fishing reel is often the easiest feature to feel and 19 Certate again raises the bar in this realm. Rotation efficiency is up 15%, creating an effortless feel when retrieving. This increase in efficiency is thanks to three main parts. A super-rigid stainless steel main shaft, MQ Monocoque body and the precision cut forged aluminium Tough Digigear.
Classic in looks, yet modern and advanced in technology and design the new Certate LT continues the famous reel’s rich history for evolution and excellence. Technology to feel, and refinement that’s sublime, the new Certate LT is Next Strong.
Combining additional features like Long Cast ABS spool, Mag Seal, ATD drag, one-piece Air Bail, new Drag Knob, Perfect Line Stopper, Machined Aluminium Air Handle, and Air Rotor combining to make the new Certate LT our most advanced Certate ever!
Compared to conventional spools, the LC-ABS has been shown to increase the average flight distance by approx. 5% due to its reduced weight and modified shape.
Daiwa’s innovative bail design features a hollow tubular stainless steel bail that delivers maximum rigidity and strength with minimum weight. Featuring a smooth protrusion-free design and construction line easily slides unencumbered along the Air Bail towards the line roller for trouble free line control.
Lighter, stronger and more balanced than any rotor system that’s come before, ‘Air Rotor’ delivers a great leap forward in rotor design and function and delivers the ultimate line roller support. Made from Zaion and featuring a redesigned arch that disperses pressure to the lower section of the rotor to reduce stressing and flexing, the design is further enhanced with a hollowed out construction reducing weight, while increasing reel sensitivity and rotational balance.
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.
Lasting 12 times longer than standard stainless steel bearings Daiwa’s CRBBs feature specially treated stainless steel, and a protective shield on the bearing race that seals out sand, fine grit, salt crystals and other abrasives. The result is a longer lasting bearing that’s protected from the corrosive elements that destroy traditional bearings.
INFINITE ANTI REVERSE
Daiwa's advanced system that limits rearward backplay handle movement to almost zero for solid hooksets with less shock to the reel. The result is the elimination of handle slap-back and the unwanted release of line.
LT (Light Tough) technology is based four key elements, Lighter, Tougher, more drag, and more bearings. Featuring a new compact body design and Tough Digigear LT reels introduce a new level of lightness and toughness to spin reel design.
MACHINE CUT HANDLE
Our new handle design is slimmer, more compact, and 50% lighter.

MAGSEALED LINE ROLLER
One of the hardest working and exposed areas of a spin reel is provided with ultimate protection with a MagSealed line roller bearing shutting out the elements for optimum line roller protection, performance and longevity.
Ultimate protection is delivered to the engine room of the reel with a magnetised oil seal located on the main shaft of the reel’s rotor shutting the door to the elements and unwanted intruders. Dust, water, and salt intrusion into the inner workings of a reel are a thing of the past with MagSeal.
A symmetrical, one-piece frame without side plates and with the gears embedded within the frame. This adds rigidity to the reel, reducing flex and twist under load, and creates a sealed mechanism. The elimination of the side plate also allows for a larger main gear to be used, which significantly improves reel power, torque and longevity.
SCREW IN HANDLE
Simplicity and effortless at its finest a screw-in handle features on our mid to high-end reels. Handle removal is as simple as back winding the handle, or forward winding for handle installation.
SUPER METAL BODY
Daiwa’s super aluminium alloy that allows the creation of a reel body that is four times more precise than a machined magnesium body, and with greater corrosion resistance.
A further evolution of its predecessor Digigear, Tough Digigear is our brand new digitally designed, machine cut gearing system that ensures ultimate gear precision, rotational smoothness, and strength.
TWIST BUSTER II
The new and improved line twist reduction system takes line taming to another level with its tapered line roller enhanced to eliminate line twist like never before. More advanced and more equipped at reducing twist in fluorocarbon and mono than its predecessor, Twistbuster II is the answer to your line twist nightmares.
