The Daiwa Proteus Inshore Series Rods are great for any inshore species such as speckled trout, snook, tarpon, or cobia. These rods are built with high modulus carbon graphite with Daiwa's exclusive high volume fiber low resin design. This design makes these rods strong and light weight.

  • Hybrid material handle (Cork+EVA) with Laser Etching logo
  • Fuji Alconite ring guides with K-shape tangle free frames
  • Fuji genuine reel seats
  • Limited Lifetime Warranty


An $8.00 oversize packaging charge may apply to these items as they ship in a long heavy duty tube to protect your items. This fee will still apply when discount shipping coupons are used.

great rod
paired this rod with VR50 reel. I fish fish it mainly for bonita and albies from my kayak. its perfectly balanced for this type of fishing. also use it for catching schoolies on the flats. the softer tip makes it easy for working plastics.

December 18, 2017
Are there any differences in the blanks between the proteus inshore rods and the original proteus boat rods? I want to use the conventional proteus inshore in the Heavy, and I want to be sure it can pull huge calicos out of thick seaweed, and throw 1-3 ounce baits comfortably.
1 Answer
Both inshore and boat rods come equipped with a graphite composite blank both made with fuji dps reel seats as well as fuji guides. The grip is the same on both rods as well Daiwa used the X-tube grip for better handling.

How long are the fore and rear grips on these rods? and what rod would you recommend for a Saragossa 6000 SW? Will be using it as a snook rod

I would recommend using the 7'6'' M for snook fishing and that rod has a great length grip for the application your using the rod for.

looking to match a Proteus Inshore spinning rod to a Penn slammer III 3500. To be used from a kayak for European Pike Do you recommend this rod for the application and if so what model?
1 Answer
This pairing would work well for bottom fishing or vertical jigging. I would not advise using this rod if your application will involve alot of casting because it has a rather long but section which could make casting from a seated position difficult.
