The Reel

After nearly half a century of reliability the original legend returns, the new 2016 BG. Daiwa’s newest heavy-duty super reel starts with Daiwa’s legendary Real Four design formula. An amalgamation of Real Engine, Real Control,  Real Endurance, Real Custom, and Real Four gives rise to spin excellence that is unrivalled in design, performance and quality. BG’s aluminium body and side plate forms a reel body that is precision machined, and highly corrosion resistant, making it the ultimate body for the offshore environment. Rigid, strong and highly durable the unyielding body allows for seamless gear function and prevents twisting when the reel is under load and results in greater cranking force. Reaping the full protection and strength benefits of the new body is technologically advanced Digigear system. A highly evolved drive system, Digigear features a high precision cutting technique that achieves perfect gear meshing and ultra smooth performance. Daiwa’s new drag, ATD implements structural changes to the spool metal of the reel that provides greater support of the spool across the entire length of the main shaft. This additional support of the spool reduces spool twist under load, promotes more even wear of the drag washers and ultimately reduces “pulsing” of the drag when fighting the fish. Combined with new improved drag grease that exhibits a low viscosity at rest, yet becomes more viscous immediately after drag start up. This reduces initial drag startup inertia and combined with the structural changes of the ATD Drag System results in a smoother drag from the initial hook up. For ultimate strength and rotation, BG uses our latest version of Air Rotor, this super strong light rotor is like no other – a new revolution in strength and sensitivity. This design disperses pressure to the entire lower section of the rotor, dramatically decreasing weight, stress and flexing while massively increasing the strength. Big on looks and big on features, the all- new, all-black and gold BG offers up a powerful combination of performance, strength and reliability in one of Daiwa’s most renowned names in heavy duty spin reels.

The Rod

The Saltist brand has few peers in the saltwater offshore tackle ream. A hallmark of power, strength and reliability when it comes to reels, the famous name is equally a mark of quality when it comes to the Saltist rod range. Designed to exacting standards and built to withstand and revel in the testing offshore world the Saltist rod series stands out from the pack. From jigging for snapper on the reefs, popping for GTs, or casting rocking headlands the Saltist rod series has it covered.  Integrating many of Daiwa most advanced and strength focused technologies the Saltist legend starts with its carbon fibre composite blank, an advanced design and constructed blank that combines strength, power, and sensitivity to deliver unrivalled performance and stunning value. Light in the hand, powerful under load, and unforgiving in battle the Saltist blank looks as good as it performs, and performs as good as the famous name would suggest. The Saltist’s performance blank it equally matched by quality, performance driven components, with Fuji Hardloy guides and reel seats delivering strength, refinement, and the quality and reliability that has made Fuji famous. Ultra tough EVA grips provide ultimate comfort and control in the hand, while a graphite weave butt section delivers maximum power to once again stand the Saltist rod series out from the crown when it comes to performance and power. Grab your weapon, because it’s time to hit the water.
