Long a firm favourite for fishing enthusiasts and professionals working inshore and in back bay saltwater areas, this instalment of the rugged Saltist line is about as rugged as they come. We love how it makes great use of an aluminium metal alloy; weight is low without sacrificing in durability, making this wonderful reel deceptively delicate in the hand.

The trademark Magseal main shaft keeps debris and salt out of the reel innards and the machined alloy DigiGear makes sure you'll enjoy a smooth action every time. The DigiGear is digitally milled, meaning the tolerances during production are exceptional - one of the many smart things Daiwa does for its customers. 


Our opinion: This is a fantastic choice for eight and ten point mono and equivalent braid. This reel is essentially state of the art, and is Daiwa's answer to customers who increasingly needed an immaculately balanced backwater spinning reel for light tackle use. It doesn't break, it's exceptionally well made and it's reasonably priced. What's not to love?
