2020 Daiwa Saltiga
SALTIGA design and strength has continually evolved throughout its eighteen-year history. Now, in 2020, Saltiga is re-imagined delivering anglers the most technologically advanced Saltiga ever produced
Extensively redesigned and engineered from drag knob to handle, Daiwa says the new Saltiga features the most advanced list of features ever. At the heart of the re-design is the brand new Monocoque body. A single-piece body capable of holding much larger internal gearing components is machined from high-strength aluminium to provide unheralded strength and improved sealing.
A new G1 Drive Gear is thicker and larger in diameter by 12% with a newly designed Tough Digigear concept of larger and deeper cut teeth providing increased strength over its predecessor the 15 Saltiga.
Improvements have also been made to the spool & drag assembly, with drag pressures increased to 25/30kg. Previously limited by the spool’s capacity, Daiwa engineers created a new drag stack, increasing the number of washers to deliver more than 10 times the drag durability compared to its predecessor. All that pressure generates heat, and a newly designed aluminium Radiation Drag Knob delivers improved cooling & heat dissipation.
A newly designed ABS Longcast lip design offers improved casting performance and enhanced line management, while a brand-new aluminium Air Rotor delivers more than double the rigidity against the 15 Saltiga.
Protection from the elements has been elevated with a new screwless rear cover, a reduction in spool porting and a unique under-side lip in the spool design combining to reduce water intrusion into the reel.
Made in Japan and bulging with a long list of Daiwa’s most advanced technologies the 20 Saltiga is design excellence, strength and power.
