Great rod
April 13, 2020
After 1 year of using it in saltwater catching bream,horse mackerel and even bluefish i am very happy with the performance of the rod.Rod tip is very sensitive but it has enough power to catch even bigger fish. ~2kg (4.4lbs)
ProsLightweight, sensitive

I have the 7'6" UL. I use it for mostly pan fish and trout. I can cast a 1/64 mini jig with it but not too far. 1/32 jigs would be the ideal jig weight you can cast. Rod is light and well balance. You can't get anything better for its price. If you want to spend more then stick to your g Loomis and st croix or even phenix rods but you'll be spending a ton for the same
ProsLight weight and balanced Great price
ConsNo cons

Purchased the 11' for Pan fish and trout
January 11, 2019
The rods line rating is wrong in my opinion. Should be rated as a 4 to 8 lb rod, too stiff for 3 to 4 lb line for protecting light line, better 6 lb rod I think. Nice finish and light for the money. i will use it for trout, steelhead and surf fishing.
ProsLight and nice finish.
ConsRated to light for the line rating.

I finesse fish in both fresh and saltwater and this rod has the sensitivity for light baits but with the strength to handle larger fish.

I got the 6'6, 2 piece rod. This rod feels great and is very lightweight. Personally I think rod is too flexible for a Fast Action rod. Feels more like a Moderate Action rod.
ProsLightweight and Looks Great. Very Sensitive. Perfect for Panfish, Crappie and Trout fishing.
ConsThe top part of the reel seat starts to bend when tightening the reel into the reel seat. Only tight to a certain extent. Reel may feel a bit loose, but tight as much as you prefer.

One of the best..
October 31, 2016
The Daiwa Presso rods are one of the best rods I have used while trout fishing the rivers here in Tasmania.. I now have 2 x 6' & 1 X 6'6'' of these rods and wouldn't use any thing else for my trout fishing.
They are a beautifully well balanced rod and go well with the different Daiwa reels that I have set up on them. Highly recommend there rods..

Could this be my new gold standard?

I purchased the 8' model, intending to use it for American shad duty. My previous top rod, a 7'6" ultralight, dubbed "the Shad Extractor", was the benchmark I measured my other gear against. That rod was unrivaled in the presentation aspect of the game - casting distance and drift control - but its greatest failing was the end game. I had a hard time subduing the fish once I brought them in close. Daiwa's Presso Ultralight doesnt' have that issue. For a slim rod, it has plenty of muscle, allowing me to lean on the fish at a distance as well as in close. I wouldn't say this rod is superior in terms of sensitivity, control, or casting distance, but neither is it lacking - it performs about as well as the other. Although it is rated for lures down to 1/32 oz, I'm skeptical that it will cast those any appreciable distance; the rod loads well enough with 1/8 oz lures, but I don't expect to be able to sling 1/16 ozers very far. I would choose this rod or any other long, fast-action ultralight over a noodle rod in a heartbeat, for the kind of fishing I do - casting from shore. I will say that it appears well made, carefully constructed, and I appreciate the hook keeper. Neighboring anglers on the water thought I had a G.Loomis. Heh heh.
ProsWell built. Functional. Strong for its size. Good distance with moderately weighted lures, ie 1/8 oz shad darts.
ConsIts classification as an ultralight notwithstanding, the 8' model doesn't seem as if it will cast very light lures. As yet untested. Perhaps the shorter models would do the job.

I have been waiting to get a new ultra light to hit the water in the kayak with this summer. It is quickly becoming my go to rod for about everything.

Light and quick
July 31, 2014
I've been using the rod for several weeks. It sets up quickly and joins firmly - and stays that way in use. The light weight is really impressive. I find the action a little stiff for throwing light, soft, live bait, like small worms of grubs, something that I resort to in mid summer. On the other hand, it's just right for setting the hook, and for casting very light plugs, spinners, and spoons. The length helps when bucking a headwind.
ProsLight, handy to put up and take down, with a good feel in use.
ConsDefinitely could use a case with sleeves instead of velcro straps as delivered. I modified mine after one trip.

Not what I expected
June 14, 2013
I matched this rod with an ultralight reel and 8lb braid. I set the drag at 1.5lbs with a weight gauge. My goal was to fish for speckled trout and striped bass on and around shallow water structure. My first trip I went to one of my honey holes and small stripers were stacked up like cord wood. The rod cast well and accurately although I think it is a little "whippy" for a fast action rod. It is a 2 piece rod and I don't normally fish with those so that may be responsible for the funny feel to me. I caught a couple of 16" stripers with no problem. Then I hooked a nice one about 22" and 3-4lbs. A very nice fight on the rod and a lot of fun. I got the fish to the boat and just as I reached over to grab the leader to pull the fish into the boat the rod snapped about 8" from the tip. I was quite surprised as I have done this a thousand times with other rods including light weight Daiwas. I believe the rod had a defect. I have returned the rod to Daiwa under warrantee. Hopefully, they will replace it as I enjoyed using the rod, if only, for a short time.
ProsVery light weight Casts accurately Gooid balance
ConsWhippy rod action Quality

How long is the butt section on the 9ft and 11ft diawa presso Rods? 12in 14in ?
1 Answer
The 9 ft butt is 11 Inches from the reel seat to the bottom of the butt, the 11 ft rod we currently do not have in-stock to measure and Tsunami does not specify the length. We will have it updated once it is available.

from Sac, California asked:
November 4, 2018
I see the description claims they only come in up to a 8ft diawa presso rod but your site says you have a 9ft and 11ft also. Is this a typo or do you actually carry the longer rods? If possible and you do carry the 9ft & 11ft, whatâ€â"¢s the length on there butt section is it super short like the 6-7ft rods or longer to help with the added length of the rod. Thanks for your time.
1 Answer
Yes, we have the 9' and 11'. They were added recently and the description needs an update. The 9' rod we have in-stock here at TackleDirect, this rod has a shorter butt (11 Inches from the reel seat to bottom of the butt). We do not have the 11' rod in-stock here to check, and unfortunately Daiwa does not specify butt lengths.

How long is the 7' travel rod when broken down in the case?
1 Answer
The 7' travel rod you are inquiring about is not in stock. Normally they are divided evenly in sections of 2 or 4. 7' is 84 inches therefor the 2 piece would be 42 inches each and the 4 piece would be 21 inches each.
