When it comes to durability and performance, Daiwa Saltist reel is the name you can rely on. These reels are made to withstand the elements, with its rugged and durable reputation. The industry’s most prominent names are the Daiwa Saltist high-speed reels. This reel features an aluminum-shaped warehouse with an anodized protective layer and an ultra-smooth 6.1: 1 transmission ratio. The reel also provides centrifugal anti-backlash control with spool clicks selector for fast and easy adjustments.
Lightweight Air Rotor Design: Just like what Okuma has done with it Cyclonic Flow Rotor air rotor on Helios and Inspira model. Daiwa’s air rotor weight about 15% less than normal rotor design, its remarkable shape lessens unnecessary weight while distributing pressure more evenly throughout the rotor for maximum strength.
Digital gear design: This design makes uses of milled tackles that are perfectly built for durability and maximum performance, which in turn transfers the cranking power for all handle rotated directly to the pool and gears.
Mags Sealed line technology: This help bring out the best in this reel and prevent penetration of saltwater, dirt, and dust between the rotor and the body. Daiwa uses special magnetic oil originally developed by NASA and now produced by Daiwa. This is not something you will find in other reels. Mostly, the molecules in this metal oil can change and therefore allow for an almost waterproof seal. The basic thing is to keep water away from the reel in the first place, as a result eradicating corrosion.
Dynamic Cut Aluminum ABS spool: The spool on Daiwa Saltiest reel is designed to accommodate many lines and that is exactly what you need when targeting larger species. The spool is ready for use, so there is no need for mono backing.
HardBodyz” Body side cover: This reel uses its own metal alloy, called HardBodyz, which is designed to offer strength and durability while keeping the weight as low as possible.
8 + 1 Corrosion: resistant stainless steel ball bearings are a corrosion Resistance of 8 + 1 Bearings – Daiwa Saltist reel used Stainless Steel Ball Bearing Corrosion Resistance of 8 Bearings Plus 1 Stainless Steel corrosion resistant Bearings.
In conclusion: I must confess I really like Daiwa Saltist reel and would not hesitate to own one in my fishing arsenal, because I am sure that it will last many years of fishing, especially in extreme conditions or for people who care less about rinsing their equipment after each use.
