The Saltist you have come to know and love has been redesigned and upgraded. Still featuring a heavy duty aluminum frame for maximum durability, we have now added our Monocoque Body (MQ) for even more power and a more compact frame. An MQ frame design allows us to fit a larger gear inside of the reel, adding power and longevity to your gear set. A 360 degree screw-in sideplate removes to need for traditional sideplate screws, allowing for a more compact and more weather resistant housing. Utilizing a Zaion AIR ROTOR, the rotation is effortless allowing you to cast and retrieve all day with ease. Complete with a Magsealed main shaft to maximize protection from the elements, you will be ready to take on the even the toughest of battles. Available in a wide range of sizes from a compact 2500 perfect for inshore fishing, up to a heavy duty 20000 to take on the toughest offshore predators. The Saltist MQ is truly a prime example of what a spinning reel should be capable of.
