Daiwa Saltist Demon Blood 17 – Travel



With a “more muscle and less fat” attitude at the core of its design, Saltist Demon Blood 17 combines the reputation of the famous Saltist name with contemporary styling, features and the latest design concepts to release from the crypt a heavy duty rod series that will make your blood boil and awaken the angling demon within.

Integrating many of Daiwa’s technologies including HVF, 3DX, X45, Glatech and V-Joint, Demon Blood has few peers when it comes to technology. At the heart of the Demon Blood’s blank design is HVF – High Volume Fibre, this combines precise resin control with unidirectional graphite fibre to produce a blank with maximum graphite density.

X45 features heavily within the series and involves a cross directional wrapping method in blank construction to eliminate blank twist and distortion to increases rod strength, function, and sensitivity.

3DX further enhances blank performance and involves a three-dimensional carbon weave at the lower section of the rod. By knitting densely packed carbon fibres in 3 directions to create a six wrap rectangular weave, the power is distributed evenly in all directions, allowing the blank to maintain its form when loaded.

This new support system allows the rod’s power to be located at the lower section of the rod for more power and less angler fatigue. This leaves the upper section of the blank to absorb all the weight during a battle with a large fish rather than the angler.

V-Joint technology takes the performance and strength of Demon Blood’s multi-piece rods to another level, with the Bias Wrap construction within the joint allowing the rod ferrule to flex with the rod to eliminate week spots, and ensure that multi-piece blanks match the performance of one-piece blanks in flex, power and responsiveness.

Comfort and control go hand in hand with full length ultra tough, EVA grips fitting seamlessly and comfortably in your hand and blending seamlessly with the Demon Blood’s reel seats to allow you to take complete control of the rod and reel and reap the full benefits and power of the blank.
