Daiwa Saltiga Airportable
Saltiga rods set a new industry standard as the strongest and lightest jigging and casting rods available, and still after 15 years these rods are envied by other manufacturers, a true testament of how advanced the rod’s technology is, they remain unchanged, and technology hungry anglers still regard these as the best available that was until now with the introduction of the latest Saltiga rod series – Airportable.
Designed for ultimate transportability and to match the awesome power of the Saltiga reels this rod series heralds a new concept – multi piece high quality offshore sports fishing rods. A great rod series starts with great blank design and the Saltiga Airportable series follows that trend to a T, featuring many of Daiwa’s latest design and blank technologies to create a range that is equally refined, as it is rugged and robust.
By incorporating Daiwa’s famous HVF, X45 and V-Joint for ultimate strength, power, light weightiness and a slim blank diameter, we have created the highest performing multi piece offshore rods available.
HVF carbon is where it all begins, with Daiwa’s low resin, high strength, reduced weight, high density carbon creating a rod that is lightweight, yet powerful and capable of punching well above its weight. For extra power Airportable uses X45 wrapping technology. X45 is a 45-degree carbon weave within the blank wrapping process that eliminates blank twist and increases power. The elimination of twist improves rod sensitivity, increases strength and allows the blank to perform at its optimum capability.
V Joint technology takes the performance and strength of multi piece rods to another level, with the Bias construction 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.
Adding to the incredible blank design, these rods feature Fuji’s Super Ocean Silicone carbide guides for extra strength, abrasion resistance and help to eliminate line wrap. Stylish metallic blue accented custom allow reel seats deliver on the looks and function front, and provide the perfect combination of strength and style, with their vice-like grip creating an immovable fusion between rod and reel. While a locking ring on the reel seat anchors the two together eliminating any chance of reel movement or slippage. To keep you connected to the rod ultra tough and light Air Foam grips allow superior grip and support.
Airportable is the ultimate in portability. Advanced designs, latest technology and strength, and ruggedness, Saltiga Airportable has it all, and it’s the foundation of one of the standout offshore rod series in the world.
