Innovation combines with proven performance to deliver anglers one of the most featured packed and exciting offshore rod ranges, the new Saltist Extreme series.
Integrating many of Daiwa’s latest technologies, the Saltist Extreme series is designed to perform at the highest standard and built to withstand the rigors of the offshore angling world.
Striking in looks, and refined, yet robust in design and performance the Saltist Extreme range is true to its famous name delivering all the qualities that we’ve grown to love and expect from the Saltist insignia.
Replacing the popular Catalina and Saltiga Extreme ranges, Saltist Extreme takes the successes of its predecessors and combines it with the latest technologies and designs to deliver offshore anglers a series that is rich in quality and generous in performance.
A great rod series starts with great blank design and the Saltist Extreme series follows that trend to a T, and features many of Daiwa’s latest design and blank technologies to create a range that is equally refined, as it is rugged and robust.
HVF carbon is where it all begins, with Daiwa’s low resin, high strength, reduced weight, high density carbon creating a rod that is lightweight, yet powerful and capable of punching well above its weight.
X45 wrapping technology features with in the series and involves a 45-degree carbon weave within the blank wrapping process to eliminate blank twist and increase power. The elimination of twist improves rod sensitivity, increases strength and allows the blank to perform at its optimum capability.
3DX further enhances blank performance and involves a three-dimensional carbon weave at the lower section of the rod. By knitting densely packed carbon fibres in 3 directions to create a six wrap rectangular weave, the power is distributed evenly in all directions, allowing the blank to maintain its form when loaded.
This new support system allows the rod’s power to be located at the lower section of the rod for more power and less angler fatigue. This leaves the upper section of the blank to absorb all the weight during a battle with a large fish rather than the angler.
Glatech construction features in many of the models in the range and incorporates uni-directional fiberglass sandwiched between 90 degree inner and outer layers graphite. The result is an incredibly resilient blank, with backbone and lifting power to control and lead strong fish. Power to control and the ability to lead, two must-have attributes in a quality offshore rod.
Advanced designs, latest technology and strength, and ruggedness to burn, Saltist Extreme blanks have it all, and are the foundation of one of the standout offshore rod series in the Daiwa range.
