Daiwa Certate 2013 line up. The new 2013 Certate not only sports an aggressive styling to the spool aesthetics but also incorporates Mag-Seal into the line roller. Cool!

Next up we take a look at the T3 SV, featuring the SV (“Stress-free Versatile”) ultra-lighweight spool, which enables it to cast a very wide range of lures
(3.5g to more than 40g according to Daiwa.), making it an extremely versatile baitcaster.
The T3 SV sports similar colour tones with the Daiwa Steez SV.
The T3 SV is available in 2 ratios – 6.3:1 (67cm per revolution) and 8.1:1 (86cm per revolution)

2013 also sees more T3 models introduced, namely the T3 MX, which is the saltwater-friendly version of the T3, featuring a saltwater-tough barrier clutch. However, the MX only sports 6 ball bearings + 1 roller bearing vs 8/1 on the T3. The MX comes in 3 retrieve ratios – 6.3:1 (67cm per revolution), 7.1:1 (75cm per revolution) & 8.1:1 (86cm per revolution).
