The Diawa Saltist LTD offshore spin reel is packed with Diawa technology at an affordable reel price point. Some features include Digigear II, Magseal, ATD, Magsealed Line Roller and Air Rotor.
Saltist LTD also features many of Daiwa's standard designs like ABS spool, Digigear and all CRBB (corrosion resistant ball bearings). For rigidity and strength, yet minimum weight, Tough Airbail eliminates post-cast loose line snagging and hanging up on the reel for improved casting performance.
Given the popularity of saltwater fishing, reducing water penetration is a major goal to minimise corrosion, promote longer life and better performance. Daiwa found a solution - Magseal, this system greatly reduces the penetration of water inside the body via the main shaft. Being magnetised, this lubrication system avoids any friction, reduces dust intrusion, eliminates oil spray and improves reel life expectancy.

ABS-II: Featuring the design and line control advances of the original ABS, ABS II features a more pronounced reverse taper spool that enables greater line control on the spool and increased casting distance.
AIR-BAIL: Daiwa’s innovative bail design features a hollow tubular stainless steel bail that delivers maximum rigidity and strength with minimum weight. Featuring a smooth protrusion-free design and construction line easily slides unencumbered along the Air Bail towards the line roller for trouble free line control.
AIR-ROTOR: Lighter, stronger and more balanced than any rotor system that’s come before, ‘Air Rotor’ delivers a great leap forward in rotor design and function and delivers the ultimate line roller support. Made from Zaion and featuring a redesigned arch that disperses pressure to the lower section of the rotor to reduce stressing and flexing, the design is further enhanced with a hollowed out construction reducing weight, while increasing reel sensitivity and rotational balance.
ALUMINIUM BODY: Lightweight and incredibly strong, aluminium allows strength and weightlessness to be achieved without the cost and corrosion issues of other metals.
ATD-DRAG: Daiwa’s Automatic Tournament Drag uses an improved drag grease that exhibits a low viscosity at rest, yet becomes more viscous immediately after drag start up. This reduces initial drag start-up inertia and combined with the structural changes of the ATD Drag System results in a smoother drag from the initial hook up.
CRBB: Lasting 12 times longer than standard stainless steel bearings Daiwa’s CRBBs feature specially treated stainless steel, and a protective shield on the bearing race that seals out sand, fine grit, salt crystals and other abrasives. The result is a longer lasting bearing that’s protected from the corrosive elements that destroy traditional bearings.
DIGIGEAR-II: More refined and precision designed than Digigear I, Digigear II involves a high precision machine cut and digitally design gears and feature a surface treated ultra-tough alloy drive gear and marine bronze pinion gear, designed to mesh together perfectly for optimized speed, power and durability.
INFINITE ANTI REVERSE: Daiwa's advanced system that limits rearward backplay handle movement to almost zero for solid hooksets with less shock to the reel. The result is the elimination of handle slap-back and the unwanted release of line.
MAGSEALED-BODY: Ultimate protection is delivered to the engine room of the reel with a magnetised oil seal located on the main shaft of the reel’s rotor shutting the door to the elements and unwanted intruders. Dust, water, and salt intrusion into the inner workings of a reel are a thing of the past with MagSeal.
MAGSEALED LINE ROLLER: One of the hardest working and exposed areas of a spin reel is provided with ultimate protection with a MagSealed line roller bearing shutting out the elements for optimum line roller protection, performance and longevity.
SILENT OSCILLATION: Silent Oscillation combines Digigear drive technology with dampening washes for noise free operation. Increased durability, and a reduction in reel noise are all achieved with Silent Oscillation.
SCREW IN HANDLE: Simplicity and effortless at its finest a screw-in handle features on our mid to high-end reels. Handle removal is as simple as back winding the handle, or forward winding for handle installation.
TWIST BUSTER II: The new and improved line twist reduction system takes line taming to another level with its tapered line roller enhanced to eliminate line twist like never before. More advanced and more equipped at reducing twist in fluorocarbon and mono than its predecessor, Twistbuster II is the answer to your line twist nightmares.
