Salt damage? Psh. Breaking down from heavy use in challenging environments? Not this one.
The Saltist 4000 from Daiwa is designed with durability in mind. Part of the renowned Saltist line, this reel boasts a Magsealed main shaft and line roller and specially designed corrosion-resistant ball bearings.
The result? A kind of smooth performance that just won't go away. The ball bearings will, according to Daiwa, last no less than twelve times longer than standard ball bearings. The air rotor, unique to Daiwa reels, weighs 15% less than ordinary designs - and it distributes stress throughout the rotor more evenly, making the use of all its strength more consistent. The spool's reversed taper means you get to use *all* of the line - and it's easier to cast, too.
Our opinion: A lot of thought goes into the Saltist line, and it's easy to see why it's the go-to for fishing enthusiasts and professionals who operate in salty and challenging environments. This thing just won't break, and it delivers a powerful and effective level of performance that doesn't degrade as the hours rack up. If you need a high-performance reel that won't quit on you, this is it.
