Beautifully Built

Integrating many of Daiwa most advanced and strength focused technologies the Saltist legend starts with its carbon fibre composite blank, an advanced design and constructed blank that combines strength, power, and sensitivity to deliver unrivalled performance and stunning value.

Light in the hand, powerful under load, and unforgiving in battle the Saltist blank looks as good as it performs, and performs as good as the famous name would suggest.

The Saltist’s performance blank it equally matched by quality, performance driven components, with Fuji Hardloy guides and reel seats delivering strength, refinement, and the quality and reliability that has made Fuji famous.

Ultra tough EVA grips provide ultimate comfort and control in the hand, while a graphite weave butt section delivers maximum power to once again stand the Saltist rod series out from the crown when it comes to performance and power.
