Daiwa Dogfight mounted on a Saltiga X PE 8/10 will give you all the muscle you need to fight big fish. Perfect for pitch baiting and any type of light gear, big fish, type of fishing. Magsealed, durable and massive drag matched with a rod fast and strong rod.
Saltiga introduced unrivalled ground breaking technology to the world, Digigear II, Magseal and Zaion Air Rotor setting the standard in high performance design and innovation. In 2015, Daiwa now take it even further with the introduction of Magsealed bearings and ATD into the new Saltiga range.
The Saltiga heralded a giant leap forward in design, revolving around magnetic fluid. Developed by NASA to magnetically deliver fuel to space ships, this revolutionary innovation was introduced to the fishing industry in the 2010 Saltiga. Mixing a liquid with iron isn’t easy, but Daiwa has mastered it in the Saltiga range. When dispersed evenly through liquid, the iron oxide (magnetite) has a diameter of 1/100,000mm, so small that the surface area of the ferromagnetic particle is around 1/10th of a single influenza virus.
This new metallic grease/oil takes on a new effect, placed by itself it forms a typical liquid helical shape with the introduction of a magnetic force it changes shape similar to the android in Terminator II, attaching itself to any other metal to form a seal. So strong is this magnetic liquid that if placed in a container with a magnetic surface it would retain its shape even if the bottom were removed. Being magnetized this lubrication system avoids any friction and reduces dust intrusion, eliminating oil spray and significantly improving reel life expectancy.
The challenge for Daiwa was to utilize the inherent benefits of magnetic liquid in reel design. Instead of it being used to dustproof, Daiwa needed something that was waterproof. Innovative design was originally used in the rotor/anti-reverse system, combined new CRBB bearings with a magnetic oil membrane, it made water intrusion a thing of the past.
Not content just with magsealing the rotor/anti-reverse system, the new series introduces an all-new revolution in ultra smooth rotation and water sealing. Magsealed bearings are placed in key points in the reel to increase rotation smoothness and increase part longevity. The new bearings are Magsealed, unlike the Magseal used in the rotor system the new bearings are a fully contained Magsealed bearing. These bearings are placed in the line roller system and the gear system.
Other introductions in the new series includes a new body design standard, with super metal super precision machine cut technology Daiwa has achieved its finest design ever, with a precision of 4 times better compared to that of the original model.
The drag system is called ATD or Automatic Tournament Drag, this is a new introduction into the Daiwa spinning reel range. The biggest issue with many drag systems is that they are not smooth at the beginning of the drag and do not adjust to suit line distance or a fish slowing down. ATD rectifies this issue.
Zaion 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 stress and flexing. Working in conjunction with the Mag Seal the Air Rotor has been hollowed out to create airflow through the whole rotor system. This prevents foreign material such as water, salt, sand and dust collecting inside the reel, the added air flow eliminates moist build up in the reel preventing corrosion issues.
With other designs innovations like Real Four, Hyper Digigear , Airbail and CRBB are also utilized, the new Saltiga Expedition sets the standard as the best heavy duty reel available.

Lightness” and “strength”the high-dimensional and integrated next-generation Saltiga rods has arrived.
For over 15 years the original Saltiga rods set a new industry standard as the strongest and lightest offshore rods available. After all this time these rods are still envied by other manufacturers, a true testament of how advanced the rod’s technology was, they have remained unchanged, until now with the introduction of the Saltiga 16 series.
The debut of the latest Saltiga rods heralds its greatest advantage ever, a new design that produxes an amazingly thin and strong blank design.
Angling perfection starts on the top shelf with Daiwa’s latest carbon design. The introduction of new carbon technology unique to Daiwa has produced a parabolic action rod that is incredibly thin and lightweight yet overwhelming powerful. The secret is HVF (High Volume Fibre) Nanoplus. Combining precise Nano resin control with unidirectional HVF graphite fiber to produce a blank with maximum graphite density. Light, responsive, and crisp in action… “HVF nano plus” is unrivaled.
Saltiga blank performance is further enhanced courtesy of X45 and 3DX.
Two of Daiwa’s premier blank wrapping technologies, X45 and 3DX, work seamlessly together to improve rod performance, and eliminate blank twist and distortion to increases rod strength, function, and sensitivity. By eliminating twist and preventing the blank from losing its round form, X45 and Bias Wrap allows a lighter a small diameter blank to be made, and lighter more dynamic rod to be created.
3DX continues the advanced blank design with its three-dimensional woven process adding support to the lower power section of the rod. By knitting densely packed carbon fibres in 3 directions to create a six wrap rectangular weave, the power is distributed evenly in all directions, allowing the blank to maintain its form when loaded. This process increases the power and eliminates blank twist and collapse, and allows the rod’s power to be located at the lower section of the blank for maximum power and a reduction in angler fatigue.
Adding to the incredible blank design, these rods feature Fuji’s latest innovation Silicone carbide K and MN guides to eliminate line wrap, Fuji reels seats with locking rings and ultra tough EVA grips.
Crisp and lightweight in the hand, yet powerful and responsive in the heat of battle Saltiga with HVF Nanoplus delivers cutting edge design for ultimate performance.
