Daiwa 2017 Saltist LTD
Daiwa Saltist LTD
The new Saltist LTD introduces unrivalled ground-breaking technology to the world at a price point never available before. Digigear II, Magseal, ATD, Magsealed Line Roller and Air Rotor feature in the all-new Saltist LTD.
Given the popularity of saltwater fishing, reducing water penetration is a major goal to minimize corrosion, promote longer life and better performance. Daiwa found a solution – Magseal, this system greatly reduces the penetration of water inside the body via the main shaft. Being magnetized this lubrication system avoids any friction, reduces dust intrusion, eliminates oil spray and improves reel life expectancy.
Not content with Magsealing the rotor/anti-reverse system, Saltist also introduces fully contained Magsealed line roller system to attenuate water intrusion, maintain rotation smoothness and increase part longevity. Magseal has now reached the pinnacle of evolution.
Daiwa’s new drag, ATD implements structural changes to the spool metal of the reel that provides greater support of the spool across the entire length of the main shaft. This additional support of the spool reduces spool twist under load, promotes more even wear of the drag washers and ultimately reduces “pulsing” of the drag when fighting the fish. Combined with new improved drag grease that exhibits a low viscosity at rest, yet becomes more viscous immediately after drag start up. This reduces initial drag startup inertia and combined with the structural changes of the ATD Drag System results in a smoother drag from the initial hook up.
Air Rotor design is further enhanced with a hollowed-out construction reducing weight, while increasing reel sensitivity and rotational balance. Providing unrivalled strength, balance, and lightness, Air Rotor is the ultimate rotor for the ultimate heavy-duty spin reel.
Daiwa’s innovative Tough Airbail provides trouble free line control and features a hollow tubular stainless steel, protrusion-free, bail arm design that allows line to slide unencumbered along the Airbail towards the line roller.
Featuring maximum rigidity and strength, yet minimum weight, Tough Airbail eliminates post-cast loose line snagging and hanging up on the reel for improved casting performance.
Saltist LTD also features many of Daiwa’s standard designs like ABS spool, Digigear and all CRBB (corrosion resistant ball bearings). The new Saltist LTD sets the standard as one of our finest heavy-duty reels available.
