Product Overview

DAIWA Saltiga® Lever Drag Conventional Reel

Daiwa's completely redesigned Saltiga LD series features the smoothest, most powerful and dependable lever-drag reels available today. Six single-speed models, Seven 2-speed models, plus Two special-purpose tournament style sailfish single speed designs cover all the bases for saltwater anglers from inshore and near shore to offshore and the canyons. 

All Saltiga LD reels feature a one-piece machined aluminum frame and side plate to assure precise alignment of bearings and gears for amazingly smooth performance, less flex, more power and reduced binding even during the fiercest battles. Oversized, super-hard, polished and meshed stainless steel main and pinion gears fit together perfectly to drive the kicking gear with extra strength and nearly silent precision while large spool bearings reduce side load so anglers can concentrate on fighting fish rather than the reel. 

Daiwa's acclaimed Advanced Tournament Drag System (ATD) keeps each Saltiga LD cool during the heat of battle while providing consistent maximum pressure through the end game. A machined aluminum spool won't bend under high drag pressure or outwardly expand as you tightly wind on line. A machined aluminum rod clamp always keeps your reel tightly secured.

All single 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. The Saltiga LD series also incorporates all CRBB ball bearings for a longer reel life and more consistent performance. 

Max drag ranges from 22 to 45 pounds for most models while line retrieve per handle turn runs from 39.90 to 47.0 The tournament style sailfish models have a max drag setting of 22 pounds and line pick-ups of 54.30 to 56.0 Backed by Executive Saltiga Five Year Warranty and Service. The best warranty in the market. The Saltiga LD line provides top shelf performance. 

The Machined Aluminum handle is ergonomically correct and screws easily into the body. Six ball bearings and one roller bearing combine to create the ultimate in silky smooth operation. If you are looking for an amazing reel packed with high-end design and technology features then the Daiwa’s Fuego LT may be the reel for you.
