Saltiga Lever Drag Conventional Reel - DAIWA
All single-speed and smaller two-speed models, along with the high-speed tournament sailfish reels, boast soft-touch rubber handles for fast, comfortable retrieves. The larger size 50, 55 and 60 2-speed models feature a long "T" style offset aluminum power handle to improve leverage and comfort without blistering your hand when the fight is on. Built with jigging in mind, the SAGDL35JH features a narrower spool and more compact frame, making it lighter weight and more comfortable for use during long jigging sessions. All models feature a substantial spool clicker that is loud enough to be heard as a strike indicator, but is not overbearing. Max drag ranges from 22 to 45 pounds for most models while line retrieve per handle turn runs from 39.9" to 47". The tournament style sailfish models (SAGLD50HS and SAGLD60H) have a more finely adjustable drag curve and a max drag setting of 22 pounds, making them ideal for use with circle hooks and lighter monofilament lines. These are high speed models with retrieval speeds of up to 56" per handle turn.
Daiwa Technology Found in Saltiga LD Conventional Reels:
- Aluminum Body - Lightweight and incredibly strong, aluminium allows strength and weightlessness to be achieved without the cost and corrosion issues of other metals.
- DigiGear - The all-new DigiGear is precision machine cut and polished. This results in unmatched efficiency, better transfer of energy, and maximum smoothness.
- Corrosion Resistant Ball Bearings - Corrosion Resistant Ball Bearings boast a lifespan up to 12 times longer than traditional stainless steel bearings.
- ATD Drag - The Advanced Tournament Drag system uses a new proprietary grease that enables the reel to apply smooth and consistent start up drag pressure from the first pull, eliminating the stop and go pulling of drag that can result in broken lines and lost fish.
