Saltist LTD Features and Technology
"After the Line Roller, prevention of water ingress into the gear system via the reel handle is the next revolutionary step to maintain ultra smooth rotation and longevity of the reel. Traditional bearings require packing with grease or oil and metal or rubber seals which can restrain contamination by water and foreign matter. This creates friction and impedes smooth rotation of the reel, while minimal twist in the bearings during rotation, can result in penetration of foreign matter, causing abnormal noise and declined rotational performance. Daiwa has improved the use of traditional CRBB ball bearings by combining them with a fully contained external Magsealed membrane. Water intrusion via the Magsealed Ball Bearings is now a thing of the past, and when they are placed into the gearbox system of the reel, they prevent invasion of water and dust, maintaining the bearings original light, ultra smooth performance. Preventing dust and salt intrusion, greatly reduces reel noise and corrosion and ultimately improves the long-term durability of the reel."
Airbail features a hollow, tubular bail arm for maximum rigidity and strength, with minimum weight. The smooth, protrusion free design ensures lose line, common after a cast, slides easily down the bail onto the line roller during the retrieve, eliminating line tangles.
"Especially for our reels with oil barrier (Mag Sealed reels) mechanism we have developed a complete new Air Rotor. So the enormous strains, which affect the rotor via the line and the line roller are better distributed. This causes less pressure on the single parts of the rotor. The new rotor is 15% more light weighted than usual rotors of the same material - this reduces vibrations and enhances the rotational balance thanks to a very low centre of gravity."
"Given the popularity of saltwater fishing, reducing water penetration into the reel is a major goal to minimise corrosion and promote longer life and better performance. If saltwater infiltrates a reel and dries, it crystallises, and then erodes gears and bearings. Through years of research and development, Daiwa found the solution – a membrane of magnetic oil, in conjunction with magnets between the body and the rotor of the reel, which 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."
Given the popularity of saltwater fishing, reducing water penetration is a major goal to minimize 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 magnetized this lubrication system avoids any friction, reduces dust intrusion, eliminates oil spray and improves reel life expectancy. Not content with Magsealing the rotor/anti-reverse system, Saltist also introduces fully contained Magsealed line roller system to attenuate water intrusion, maintain rotation smoothness and increase part longevity. Magseal has now reached the pinnacle of evolution. Daiwa’s new drag, ATD implements structural changes to the spool metal of the reel that provides greater support of the spool across the entire length of the main shaft. This additional support of the spool reduces spool twist under load, promotes more even wear of the drag washers and ultimately reduces “pulsing” of the drag when fighting the fish. Combined with new improved drag grease that exhibits a low viscosity at rest, yet becomes more viscous immediately after drag start up. This reduces initial drag startup inertia and combined with the structural changes of the ATD Drag System results in a smoother drag from the initial hook up. Air Rotor design is further enhanced with a hollowed-out construction reducing weight, while increasing reel sensitivity and rotational balance. Providing unrivalled strength, balance, and lightness, Air Rotor is the ultimate rotor for the ultimate heavy-duty spin reel. Daiwa’s innovative Tough Airbail provides trouble free line control and features a hollow tubular stainless steel, protrusion-free, bail arm design that allows line to slide unencumbered along the Airbail towards the line roller. Featuring maximum rigidity and strength, yet minimum weight, Tough Airbail eliminates post-cast loose line snag
