Daiwa Saltist Nero Reel

  • The new Saltist Nero introduces unrivalled ground-breaking technology to the world at a price point never available before. Digigear II, Magseal, ATD and Air Rotor feature in the all-new Saltist Nero.

    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 Ð 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.

    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.

    The new improved drag grease 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.

    The Nero range covers 2500 size with 7kg of drag through to 8000 size with 15kg drag.
