In the past the Saltist Spin Reel had filled a pretty niche role for Daiwa. It covered the mid-priced bracket and focused on heavier inshore and light offshore work. Now the Saltist is represented in the small spin category, all the way to the 8000, and what’s more, it has had a significant upgrade. The New 2016 Daiwa Saltist fishing reel sports the who’s who of Daiwa technology, it benefits from a cosmetic upgrade and gains a couple of ball bearings over its predecessor.
Expect the new Saltist to now become extremely popular. There are a huge number of anglers that demand top shelf performance without having to commit to the outlay of something like a Saltiga. The Saltist is the epitome of exceptional durability and performance for a mid-priced spin reel that won’t force a second mortgage.
Check the list below to see the fantastic line up of Daiwa technologies now in the Saltist. The Automatic Tournament Drag has been upgraded making it even more reliable. There are now 8 ball bearings and the line roller system now comes with Magseal. Air Rotor adds a new level of high performance to the Saltist spin reel and also compliments the new styling. The spool is now heavily ported, removing weight and enhancing the modern aesthetic. The black with blue highlights looks amazing.
The Daiwa Saltist 2000, Saltist 2500 and Saltist 3000 will see anglers dominate the inshore grounds. Now you can take you Saltist into the finesse arena, and pitch it versus anything from Trout and Bass, to Daley River Barra in the top end and everything in between. They will be perfect for the estuaries, bays, rivers and harbours. The ideal fishing reel for casting your favourite soft plastic at the likes of Bream and Flathead. Strap on the 3000 and you give yourself a ‘light kit’ fighting chance up against a decent mulloway.
