Daiwa Saltist X Rods
There’s plenty of high-performance fishing rods on the market worthy of re-mortgaging. The problem is, once your significant other realises the price on the receipt…divorce is not out of the question.
With a Daiwa Saltist X fishing rod, you can avoid this problem yet still enjoy absolute top-shelf performance, features and inclusions. A Daiwa Saltist X Rod is premium high-performance fishing, without the unreasonable, home-wrecking price tag. You may well get brownie points for your unusually conservative approach to your fishing budget.
Saltist X is the latest version of the famous Saltist range, and every model is an absolute knockout. They’re a must-have for the boatie, but some models will suit beach and rock anglers, as well as those anglers that chase a larger class of fish from piers, wharves and docks.
The HVF composite graphite blanks are enhanced Braiding X technology to increase hoop strength. Hardware includes ever-reliable Fuji reel seats, as well as Fuji guides, which are fitted with Fazlite inserts, offering lightweight strength and superior line management.
Daiwa Saltist X fishing rods are the epitome of strength, sensitivity and responsiveness in a lightweight package. You’ll struggle to find anything of this performance and pedigree at this price point.
