Daiwa Saltiga Expedition Fishing Reel – Model 8000
Daiwa Saltiga Expedition Fishing Reel features a long list of incredible benefits, which are often not seen in other reels. The reels are not only dust proof, but water proof as well. The design is innovative and the features are revolutionary. All these combine to provide you with the smoothest rotation and the best water sealing technology which you have ever seen in a spinning reel.
Daiwa has prevented water intrusion by placing Mag Sealed bearings in all key points, resulting in a smooth rotation. Plus, the life of the product also increases since the bearings are well protected because of the new seal. The bearings also prevent water, salt, and other minerals from entering into the roller system and the gearbox. As for the rotor, it features a hollow construction which encourages airflow through the entire rotor system. Thus, dust, sand, salt, water, and other particles cannot accumulate, making the Daiwa Expedition 8000 reel resistant to corrosion.
Inspired by NASA, Daiwa has incorporated the very same technology with which they fuel space ships, in their new Saltiga Expedition fishing reel. The reel design contains a magnetite based liquid, which generally takes a helical shape. When subjected to magnetic force, the liquid gets the power to change its shape. In the process, it attaches itself to any metal and forms a strong, protective steal. This technology provides the Expedition fishing reels with out-of-the-class lubrication, preventing friction among parts. Dust can also not affect the product in any way. So with both water and dust intrusion features, the life expectancy of Daiwa Saltiga Expedition reel is significantly improved.
