In 2012-2014 Daiwa released a new version of its high end Exist reel.  It has a Zaion body, with a magsealed body and air rotor. It also features a Twist Buster 2 reel guide, ABS II spool, a duralumin main gear and CRBB bearings. This makes the reel okay for saltwater use. The 2012-2014 Exist also came with a semi hard case for protection when transporting the reel included with the reel.
