Hey, anybody here has any experience with the new daiwa saltist spinning reels ? How does it stack up against other mid range reels like the stradic fk

@Rfdes

I have the older model Saltist(4500H) which I bought for its high speed retrieve, mainly targeting speedy fish like tuna in the oceans. No complaints there.

I presume you are referring to the latest model Saltist, which is Magsealed (magnetised liquid inside the body) to make it water resistant.
I have never been a fan of this type of sealing, too high tech and one can have it serviced by Daiwa only in case of trouble.

The Stradics have been standout performers in their previous FJ version ( I have three of them!) and I am sure the FK would be just as good.

Both the Saltist and the Stradic are good reels from very reputable manufacturers,with the former being more suitable for fishing in the surf where a reel may get a good soaking.

Hope this helps.

Note that the Shimano and Daiwa are different in their sizing specifications. A Daiwa 4500 would be about the size of a Shimano 8000/10000 reel. Please consider that before buying one. Good luck, they both are great reels !!

I can vouch for a shimano reel, the mag sealed Diawa reel will prove to be costly when servicing is required.

@Rfdes, just curious and for the sake of closure on this topic, I'm interested to know what you ended up going with? and for what application? surf? inshore? etc... This will help me out a bunch as I have a similar dilemma.

Cheers...
