daiwa_logo.gif (3046 bytes)Daiwa Saltwater Reels Daiwa produces some excellent reels, and they've really done some great things with their newest additions to the line. This Japanese manufacturer is very conservative, they are slow to introduce new contraptions, but once developed they stay with a winner. An indication of this is the Black Gold spinning series. I've been using these reels since I lived back in Texas...that's since 1984! The BG series are, in my opinion, as good a spinning reel you can buy for anywhere near the selling price. The conventional style SL20 and 30 baitcasters are standards out here, and very well regarded for their light line handling, casting, and smooth drags.  Diawa has some very strong contenders in the saltwater arena, and their new models really hit the nail on the head. Frankly, Daiwa's quality and innovation in reel design was one big reason why we elected to move away from Shimano's anti-competitive BS.  Daiwa represents a better competitive value, their quality is quite evident and they allow us to offer our clients a better value without the anti-competitive routine of the folks from Shimano. Within the Japanese market, Daiwa has long been considered the best. They don't build bikes, they build fishing reels...properly.

SPOOLING/RIGGING:

Please note, you will see many spooling options for the reels listed below. It's not our intent to confuse folks, but you do have options here unlike some places and we take pride in the fact we can rig things according to your needs, applications and preferences. We have been pioneers in Super Braid / Spectra rigging and we offer a few methods of rigging the lines together beyond most retailers capability, including the standard long range Bimini to Albright knots, Served and Sato connections. We do not use simple uni-to-uni knots for connecting braid to leader, we take the time to make a better knot, one that will hold up over time and deal with larger fish. Simpler knots don't work as well. You can see videos of what we do on our YouTube channel - CharkBaitUSA. We can upgrade that connection to one of several options, the benefit with those connections is that the diameter is thinner and that allows the line to flow through your rod's guides more smoothly, has less resistance in the water and is stealthier. If you have questions regarding rigging, please give us a call or zap back an email and we can go over things with you. Bottom line, you have options with us and we're proud of our staff's ability to rig things to your needs rather than simply "slapping" things together. Our knots hold, as does our in-line rigging.

 

New Arrivals:
Daiwa Saltiga SASD 10H & 15H
AND FINALLY THE 35/40/50!
T
he Return of the Star Drag Saltigas!

At ICAST 2015 Daiwa showed off two new Star Drag Saltiga series reels, the first of what will no doubt become a full line of star drag pieces offered in the USA market by this prestigious Japanese manufacturer. At ICAST 2016 Daiwa followed up with what we were hoping for, their new larger sized Saltiga Star Drag Reels - completing the series.

The first two reels which came into inventory at Daiwa's warehouse in California were the 10. In my estimation, these first new reels will have a fairly narrow application among our clients given the limited line capacity (for the model 10), but they point to some important new features and the future for Daiwa's high end reels. It's also fair to note, that our images do look different from what you will find on other sites, we actually have the reels in stock, take our own photos proving that point - and don't simply rely on the manufacturers website to pull photos...

Daiwa's older Saltiga star drag reels were, at least in my opinion, some of the nicest star drag reels ever produced, and we were sad to see them go away. The machining was nicer than anything else on the market, and they performed wonderfully. These new reels take that series to a new level. The new Saltiga Star drags come with a Magsealed ball bearing in addition to their 7 Corrosion Resistant Stainless Steel Ball Bearings (CRBB) and 1 Roller Bearing. It's a 9 bearing reel, quality bearings throughout. The Mag sealed bearings are similar to what we've seen in high end audio gear, the technology has been used for professional loudspeakers, great for dissipating heat and adding longevity to hard driven drivers. In the world of fishing, some similar benefits, with the addition of elimination of saltwater intrusion.

The reels feature a precision machined housing, one piece machined aluminum frame and right side plate, machined aluminum spool, with a spool lock mechanism to pretect gears when engaged. There's no spool clicking sound, silent. Also, Daiwa makes use of their Ultimate Tournament carbon drag, boasting 15.4 lbs of drag - and given this is a star drag, all of the drag is useable without degrading freespool performance. The reels come with a very nice reel cover. Overall, I'll say that Daiwa is introducing some very nice reels these days, and more to come. This is just the fist of their 2016 introductions.

NEW MAGSEALED BALL BEARING

NEW Zillion Type HD models feature the Magsealed ball
bearing. Magnetic oil bridges the gap between the inner
and outer bearing races—keeping the elements out.

CORROSION RESISTANT BALL BEARINGS

Last up to 12 times longer than standard stainless steel
ball bearings.

 

Very compact design, large oversized gears for power, excellent machining and performance.

The reel shown below is the 15 size, 10's above. The 15 offers the same physical dimensions as the 10, the difference is the arbor of the spool, not as large/fat so the line capacity increases.

SALTIGA 35H BELOW

We have the new larger sized Saltiga Series reels in our inventory now. Picked the 35, 40 and 50's up from Daiwa's warehouse at the tail end of November - and they are SUPER!!! Exactly what we'd hoped to see - the nicest machining in the business, smooth as silk, refined.

These reels can be called Jigging Reels, compete very well with the more esoteric and overpriced reels we've seen come from China under different names (Maxel, Ocean Master, etc.). The difference is that Daiwa is a big time name, a real company, U.S. regional service and support, warranty...

The new reels feel exceptional, no handle slop, anti-reverse is perfect in design and application. The larger sizes do far more than jig, they are great reels for fishing bait, long distance casting and of course working jigs and iron.

Daiwa Sealine Reels!

One of the best values in sportfishing!

Daiwa's Sealine X series are a wonderful group of reels, have been for years now. The spool disengages when you cast, so the freespool performance is excellent. The drags are reliable and sound, and I've been aboard the Red Rooster when a fellow took the jackpot with a tuna over 110 pounds - so I know they are sound pieces, solid, capable performers.

The reels are excellent for tossing iron or bait. Reels in this series reels feature Super Speed Shaft for longer casts (like a neutral), selectable centrifugal casting brakes, waterproof sealed drags - waterproof, fast gearing, tough marine bronze and stainless gears, aluminum spool, composite frame and sideplates, rod clamp... For 2006 Daiwa upgraded the reel by adding improved CRB bearings for enhanced corrosion resistance.

Daiwa Seagate Reels

Daiwa's Seagate series reels are basically a bit of a "tweener." They share some of the same features that have made their Sealine and Saltist reels so very popular over the years. The reels are a very reasonable $149, and we do our part to enhance that affordability factor stick by including free mono spooling and free shipping. The new reels have corrosion proof composite frames and side plates. You have helical cut bronze gears for smooth powerful cranking, all at a 6:1 speed. There are three CRBB corrosion resistant bearings plus a roller bearing, anodized aluminum spool, and carbon fiber drag washers. There's even a centrifugal spool brake! Very solid features and specs coupled with a reasonable price point make the new Seagate reels something well worth considering.

Daiwa Saltist Star Drag Reels
FREE BRAID & FREE SHIPPING

While we were indeed sorry to see the old series of Saltist star drag reels go away, I've got to say we are more than pleased to see the new ones arrive and now we've had sufficient time to fish 'em (especially since two of the guys at the shop own 'em) to know they are excellent reels to own.

The Saltist Black Gold reels share some common features, such as a one piece aluminum frame and sideplate, four CRBB (corrosion resistant ball bearings) plus roller bearing. One of the big changes is the finish of these reels. They are now anodized instead of painted (yes, the older series had a painted finish, very good but not as good as an anodized finish when it comes to wear). The drag has also been upgraded to Daiwa's Ultimate Tournament carbon drag which provides increased drag performance. There's an infinite anti-reverse, machined aluminum spool and a centrifugal anti-backlash control, and all the reels have clickers - loud clickers! There are some significant upgrades on these reels, making them an even better value than the older models. Pricing has not changed dramatically from the older series, and that's some very good news, too!

Daiwa Saltist Reels!

Daiwa Saltist Lever Drag
Single Speed & 2 Speed Reels!

Daiwa introduced a new series of saltwater reels in 2009 based upon their very popular and well designed Saltist series of cast aluminum reels. These new reels offer some features sure to please anglers looking to combine both speed of retrieve and cranking power.  In 2016 ICAST Daiwa also introduced an updated Saltist spinning reel line - these are shown on the Daiwa Spinning page.

Certainly Daiwa took a look at what Avet's been up to for the past few years and came to the realization that spectra has changed the game in favor of the use of smaller gear for bigger fish - if that gear is up to the challenge. Daiwa also upgraded the drag material to a carbon fiber design (again more like Avet's been offering on all their reels). Daiwa states that the reels will have 13-17#'s of drag with freespool, and button down at 22-26#'s of drag. Pretty impressive specs indeed, and very well thought out gear ratios. They also feature 6 bearings, and a 6.3:1 & 3:1 gear ratio.  All in all, it appears that Daiwa has some winners on their hands with the Saltist Lever Drag reels. Time has proven that these are great fish catchers in the best traditions of Daiwa.

Introduced at the same time as the two-speed LD's, Daiwa produced the same reels in a single speed form. These single speed reels all share a 6.3:1 gear ratio, and 13#'s of drag measured at strike with freespool performance (manufacturer's spec). Like the 2-speeds, the little 20 will hold about 325 yards of 15# and 210 of 20# mono, the larger 30 size will hold 295 yds of 20# and 230 of 25# line. The 40 holds 270 yds of 30# mono, the 50 holds 310 yds of 40#. Pictured Right: the 40 & 50 size Saltist 2 speed. Daiwa also introduced a narrow 40, the model 35. It shares all the same features of the 40, size of drag...but in a skinnier form. Wonderful size for use on a jig stick.

For the folks demanding even higher gear ratios, folks going vertical jigging or for use with surface iron targeting cruising yellowtail, Daiwa introduced a higher speed version of the single speed reels. These are burners, with a 7.3:1 gearing. You sacrifice some power by going so fast, but the benefit of the faster retrieve may produce some more bites for you since there are those fish that go nuts for the fast wind, and the action produced on a jig can indeed benefit with a touch more speed. The red trimmed high speed reels fit a narrower application, may not be the way to go for folks fishing bait for instance, but if you're seeking a more dedicated jigging reel these are great options.

Daiwa Saltiga Reels

FREE BRAID & FREE SHIPPING

For a long time we've wanted the Saltiga with a precise lever drag. There are times a star drag is called for, and times when a lever really is the best option. Now, anglers have a choice. The LD series is the best Daiwa produces, impeccable machining, durability and performance. They are made for fishing braided lines (and American produced Spectra is the best in this regard). They feature smooth one-touch shifting and Daiwa's Ultimate Tournament Carbon Drag material.

Features
- simple, one touch gear shift mechanism providing both speed and power
- six CRBB corrosion resistant ball bearings
- offset power handle with soft touch grip
- massive stainless steel gears - helical cut for power and smoothness
- machined aluminum frame and left sideplate
- machined aluminum spool
- centrifugal casting brakes
- machined aluminum rod clamp
- precision ratchet anti-reverse

Orders over $150 are shipped FREE!* Orders less than $150 are billed for shipping. Upon placing your order you'll receive an immediate confirmation via email. You are not billed at that time, the confirming email may not reflect oversize or overweight charges or other issues requiring direct contact. We process orders manually, preferring to have a human actually check things over and contact you should there be questions. Within 24 hours of placing your order you will receive a follow-up email confirmation and final  invoice (pdf doc) reflecting your total charges (Monday-Friday). You are not billed until we actually send you your final invoice.  Orders shipped to CA addresses will have California Sales Taxes applied, out of state orders are tax free. During the ordering process you can select expedited shipping if required. (Within the USA we usually ship via Federal Express ground. International, and oversize/weight items will be billed for shipping and you will be sent an emailed invoice reflecting total charges prior to actual billing. We will not ship without you having had a chance to review the invoice). Hawaii and Alaska shipping will be accomplished using USPS Priority service, and our standard shipping cost policy will apply unless the item ordered does not fit in their standard size boxes. If additional shipping fees are required we will contact you.)
