The Reel

If looks could kill… Observing the traditions and reputation of the acclaimed Saltist name, the Saltist Nero delivers a balance of performance, strength reliability and outstanding value, encompassed within a modern, dark & mysterious, matt black exterior shell. The allmetal body forms the foundations for this latest iteration of the Saltist, housing Daiwa’s revolutionary Digigear Drive System that delivers up to 15% more cranking power than with conventional gears.
Digigear features a high-precision cutting technique and allows for superior gear precision and strength. Made from super strong, corrosion resistant alloy, Digigear gears are lighter, stronger and allow for flawless gear meshing and superior cranking smoothness and power. With more cranking power, seamless meshing of gears, and the elimination of wear and tear, Digigear is the ultimate system for ultimate gear performance. Saltist Nero features a CRBB bearing for corrosion resistance, and reel longevity. Unlike standard bearings CRBB bearings are shielded for extra protection to seal out sand, fine grit, salt crystals and other abrasives for extended bearing life.
Daiwa’s Full-Time Dual Stopper Infinite Anti-Reverse system ensures ultimate gear control, with the highly refined system delivering precision cranking and the elimination of handle back play for increased reel sensitivity and hook setting power.

The Rod

Harsh, brutal, and unforgiving, there’s few styles of angling more testing of angler and tackle than offshore fishing. Unrelenting on gear and capable of pushing angler and tackle to their limits, only the most prepared anglers survive and only the best, most rigorously designed and constructed tackle prevails.
Few names are more synonymous with this required strength and power than Saltist. The epitome of offshore excellence the new Saltist Hyper range of rods delivers on all fronts, offering cutting edge design, advanced technologies and unwavering strength and poise. Replacing the incredibly popular Monster Mesh range the Saltist Hyper series takes the diversity and robustness of this successful range and blends it with advanced designs.
The foundation of all good rods is the blank, and the Hyper Saltist is no exception and utilizes some of Daiwa’s most advanced blank technologies to created a rod series that is refined, rugged and indestructible. Utilising HVF carbon, Daiwa’s low resin, high strength, reduced weight, high density carbon the result is a range that is stripped of unwanted weight, yet loaded with all the power that you need. More muscle and less fat is the name of the game in the Saltist Hyper range. Power, strength, lightness and uncompromising blank integrity are the hallmarks of the Saltist Hyper range. A great blank needs a great seat, and the Saltist reel seats are the perfect combination of strength and style.
Rock solid Fuji reel seats create an immovable fusion between rod and reel, with alocking ring on the seat anchoring the two together eliminating any chance of reel movement or slippage. Fuji will guide you and your Saltist onto fish with their O Concept guides, a new deep-pressed frame technology, offering 360-degree protection from bumps, hits and dings. The O Concept also reduces guide draw, twist and bend and weight, resulting in a more responsive rod. Chrome in colour and contrasting strikingly with black guide bindings, they complete the classic blue, black and white stylings and ensure that the Saltist Hyper look as good as they fish.
Long hard days offshore call for a comfortable rod and in the hand is where the ultimate test of comfort is made, and the ultra tough EVA grips on the new Saltist are as comfortable and rugged as they come. Smooth, ergonomically friendly, classic black EVA grips put the power in your hands to battle the toughest fish, while offer you the comfort to use all day long.
Classic in style, and advanced in design, function and application, the Saltist Hyper range offers diversity, strength and exceptional value like few offshore rod series have before.
