The fine diameter and strength of today’s super braids lets you pack on a tremendous amount of fighting power into a compact reel. Few reels are built for this type of punishment, but one stands out from the crowd, the tough and narrow Saltiga overhead.
Overheads can be difficult to jig with but with the new Saltiga’s narrow design it makes it a lot easier. Traditionally jigging with threadlines is easier because of the balance point below the rod. The compact and narrow Saltiga overheads utilize a smaller side plate for ease of handling and a huge drop down gear box keeping the axis point lower for improved balance, virtually eliminating side overbalance.
Daiwa’s advanced gear design, Hyper Digigear, delivers it’s tell tale precision, to create a reel that has few peers when it comes to smoothness. Silky smooth on the crank and flawless under load the Saltiga is purity and precision in true Daiwa style. Combine this with the powerful, unyielding ATD drag system that gives you the power and poise to take control of whatever crosses your angling path. A new large clicking alloy star drag puts this control in easy reach, with its super light, ergonomic design making it easier than ever to crank the power up when needed.
Ultimate cranking control is available with a large swept handle bringing the balance point of the handle closer to the centre of the reel and combines with large, super grip EVA knobs for unmatched cranking power, balance and control. The handle can be adjusted from 75mm to 85mm to increase or decrease speed and power. Saltiga continues Daiwa’s innovation trend by featuring Mag Seal technology. Mag Seal is a revolutionary system that involves magnetized oil that forms an impenetrable seal that prevents, dust, water and salt intrusion. The later being a major limiting factor and the Achilles heel of saltwater reels. That was until now, with the Saltiga reveling in the protection and the performance of Mag Seal Ball Bearing. Located on the pinion gear, the result is the elimination of water and salt intrusion, and increased protection and performance. Slamming the door shut on unwanted intruders, Saltiga with new Mag Seal technology is overhead protection and design advancement like you’ve never before. Heralding a new dawn in overhead design, the Saltiga uses the pedigree of its past with the innovation and technology of the future to deliver anglers a new age in performance, and a new age in excellence.
