Daiwa Saltist Level Wind Casting Fishing Reel - Model LW 20HC
Daiwa originally developed this range when it crafted the standard Saltist LW fishing reels. Nowadays, the Saltist HC reels have built upon that legacy by adding several modern innovations. Daiwa is renowned for revisiting past successes and breathing new life into them. Saltist HC represents the rebirth of a legend.
The star feature of the Saltist HC is the anodized finish to guard against the wear and tear inflicted by constant saltwater use.Saltwater is one of the most destructive elements your reel can face, but now the Saltist HC can provide the most effective form of protection.
Rather than develop a saltwater fishing reel built from mostly graphite components, Daiwa has crafted the Saltist HC range nearly entirely out of metal. It Features a super strong 1 piece aluminium frame. The thought process behind using metal is that the components will offer greater reliability when combined with the protective anodized coating.
Corrosion is the enemy in fishing reels. Daiwa has undermined that by including four corrosion resistant ball bearings (CRBBs) to help out. These are also resistant to intrusion from materials such as grit and sand, not to mention saltwater.
