Saltwater trophy hunters looking for a dependable lever drag reel will snap up the Daiwa® Saltiga® LD Conventional Reel. Simply put, this redesigned reel is one of the smoothest, most powerful and versatile lever drags available today. Its 1-piece machined aluminum frame and sideplate assembly keeps the internals properly aligned and functioning with smooth precision – important when sails, tuna, and other big game are doing their best to tear it all up. The spool too, is crafted of light, tough machined aluminum, preventing energy loss at critical moments. The strength factor runs to the very heart of the Saltiga LD, where Digigear technology encompasses super-hard, oversized stainless steel gears that mesh perfectly; the drive system features a premium 7-bearing system consisting of 6 stainless steel Corrosion Resistant Ball Bearings + 1 instant anti-reverse bearing. Both single-speed and 2-speed Saltiga LD reels utilize Daiwa's top-shelf Automatic Tournament Drag for smooth, nearly effortless performance at all settings. The single-speeds and smaller 2-speeds are equipped with comfortable Soft Touch rubber handles; size 50 and larger 2-speeds have extra-long T-style offset aluminum power handles. Machined aluminum rod clamp. Comes with a manufacturer's 5-year warranty.
