The Reel

The brand new model of the heavy duty Saltist reel have now been upgraded with the Saltiga MAGSEALED construction and the Saltiga MAGSEALED line roller. When you are looking for a Saltist make sure you compare the price with the right feature set. This brand new version of Saltist takes it to another dimension than the previous version.

As the Saltist name implies, these reels were designed for all-out serious saltwater fishing. And that means simple, straight forward mechanisms that can withstand the punishment and still work flawlessly, time after time. Like a manual bail trip for fewer moving parts—greater strength and reliability. Even a dual, full-time anti-reverse you can depend on, with no lever to accidentally turn off or snag line. Reliability and performance—that’s Saltist.
