  1. Scooby did a great tear down video on this reel earlier this year. Then I found out they had a P (5.1 ratio) version. I picked up a 15P for my dad as he doesn't fish much and at $225 (no tax, free shipping, ebay bucks), I figured it was a perfect buy. Hasn't been fished yet, but looking it over, I have to say this is one very well made reel. No it doesn't have 10 bearings. But it has 4 CRBB's and that's more than enough. At least I know the bearings I have are corrosion resistant. 17 pounds of drag is more than enough and even the star drag itself feels comparable to the saltiga. It's very smooth. It's not heavy at all but it feels solid. I was so impressed, I purchased the 20 size for my wreck rod. Figured I didn't need to spend $400 for my least used set up. That all being said, I think for the money it's a better value than a trini, ocea jigger, or saltiga (not to say I wont/dont own them and like having super nice reels).. No, it doesn't have the same amount of refinement, smoothness, high level of gearing, protection and so on and so forth... But it's just a really good reel at a really fair price and you barely hear anything about them. Would've thought the toggers in the North East would have been all over them.
  2. Looking to trade these two new reels for a ZeeBaas ZX2 25 or 27 Bailess in good to great condition. My first preference would be a 2-for-1 trade, but if no takers, individual prices are below. Saltiga 30HA: $380 Shipped PayPal Saltiga 35LD: $380 Shipped PayPal Thanks for looking!
  3. I purchased this reel in May, 2017 at $450 from TD. I've used it only 3 times, but there are some signs of wear. Mainly, a scratch on the left side plate (in the pic) and some dings. I intended to use it on the surf, but it never made it to the beach. I practiced distance casting from a bridge, but couldn't tame the beast. I took it on headboat a couple of times since then and that's where it got a scratch and dings. There's absolutely nothing functionally wrong with the reel that I am aware of. I have a smaller Saltiga (SASD15H) that I use on headboats now, so this bigger reel is only collecting dust. I couldn't find the manual, but it comes with a box and whatever you see in the picture. It's spooled with 50lb power pro with 50lb flourocarbon leader. I am selling this at $300 shipped. I accept Venmo, Paypal, Check, or BoA wire. I think the preferred method is Paypal on this forum for buyer/seller protection.

  10. I was wondering what rod you guy would use with a 3000 saltist back bay i was thinking a 8-14 pound test rod (usually labeled as medium light) but i know that the saltwater daiwa reels tend to be on the larger side so i'm just looking for some of your input

  13. I am not too familiar with using braid but I just bought a Daiwa BG 4000 reel, which i heard casts best when using braid but the only braid I have is 50lb and 80lb. Are there any drawbacks with using heavier pound test braid?
  14. Girlfriend went ahead and ordered herself a new reel without talking to me about it first and endud up with something much bigger than she wanted. Anyone get a new BG 4000 or possibly 4500 that they then decided they wanted bigger? Let me know.
  15. I am selling a Daiwa Lexa HD 300HS-P baitcaster with the 7.1:1 gear ratio and loaded with 30lb multicolor J-braid. The reel is in great cosmetic and mechanical condition as I only used it for 1 season and serviced it a month ago. It was mostly used for jigging sea bass and fluke and I'm only selling because I am moving on to different things. It comes with the original box and papers. Price is $165 and I am located in Massachusetts.
  16. As the title says. Show me what you got!
  17. Hello all, Like most of you im sure, I am literally counting days until the spring season.. part of my winter time coping process is building rods, plugs, teasers etc and buying more gear for next season that I don't need. So, in the spirit of adding to the crap I dont need, im looking at the new Daiwa saltiga bay jigging spinning reels 3500/4000 (SABAYJ3500H-JDM and SABAYJ4000-JDM) for the spring. I played with one over at J&H and it was impressive. Small and solid, also absurdly smooth. Honestly, and I hesitate saying this, but maybe even smoother than the Stella. Its Mag sealed (I'm not sure how I feel about that yet). I've fished stellas for years but never a saltiga. They seem to have a good following of guys who love them. I was hoping this new line of smaller "bay jiggers" would be little beasts as well. I would like to put it on a nice 7'2 10-20 I'm building right now and use the combo from the boat and the kayak for 30+ lb bass and monster bluefish. Anyone have one of these reels yet? Or experience fishing one? Any input would be appreciated.. Daiwa makes great reels but I'm always hesitant to drop $800 just to guinea pig a new product
  18. Looking to clear out some space on the rod racks and sell some of the ones I don’t use as often. Would like to sell the rods locally, Mays Landing, NJ. Will not ship. Meeting at Surf Day may be an option but not currently 100% sure I’ll be going yet.

I believe they are fair prices so I am firm on them unless you decide to buy more than one. I’ll attach pics later today. Thanks SOL
  19. I'm building a new spinning rod for the kayak and I'm having a hard time pairing a reel. Rod will be used mainly for weakfish and fluke in the back bays. I'm building on the black hole challenger bank 691UL 6'9 0.5-1.5 so I'm looking at a reel in the 2500 size that would be spooled with #10 or #15. The stradic seems like the obvious choice but I'm curious about those daiwa ballistic LT reels. If the daiwa sizing runs a bit large like they have in the past, I may be able to get away with the 1000 size ballistic LT. Anyone have these reels and used them for similar application? Other reel suggestions in appropriate size class?
  20. Long story short, I bought the Saltiga 15H in December of last year and used it once. While I was using it, I confirmed that something wasn't quite right with the drag. I was on a boat using 8 oz sinker and the drag was slipping when I was setting the hook (without any fish on). I tightened it as far as I was comfortable doing and I was still able to pull line out by hand. I sent in the reel for warranty repair and it came back exactly the way I sent it. Then I called Daiwa and spoke to a service tech, Johnny, and he told me to send it in again. I spoke to him a few times about the issue today and it looks like he can't do anything about it. Basically, I don't feel comfortable locking down drag on any of my reels in most scenarios. It has 17.5 lbs of max drag and that's more than plenty for what I am targeting. I usually go 80% from being locked tight and that usually works fine. But Johnny told me that he measured 22 lbs of drag when he tightened as far as he could. I told him that that wasn't my issue and I don't need 22 lb of drag. I want to be able to go from 1lb of drag to 17lb of drag gradually. Not 0 drag to 22lb drag instantly only when the reel is locked down. What worried me was when he said "You'd be surprised how much I had to tighten." I have many other star drag reels and they all have fairly wide sweet spots and drag seems to go up gradually. If there is a sweet spot on this reel (which I still think is a lemon), it is probably extremely narrow. Not what I expected from a $400 reel. Johnny first said that he would put in an extra drag washer, then changed his mind and pointed me to aftermarket drag washers... Smh. He's definitely a nice guy, but in the end, wasn't very helpful. Anyone else with Saltiga 15H drag problems?
  21. Relisting reel parts for Saltiga Surf. Spool, handle, drag knob. Used but in perfect working condition. Take all for $55 shipped.
  22. Selling my Daiwa Saltigas to get funds to purchase a broken home appliance for the wife... I am selling Daiwa Saltiga Star Drag SASD15H... Very sad to let these go... Purchase date: December, 2017 Usage: Used 1 time Cosmetic: 9/10 - Since I used it once, I am giving it 9/10. See pictures. Mechanical: 8/10 - After using it for the first time, I thought that there was something wrong with the drag. It was very smooth, but weak. I sent it in for service and just got it back today (see picture of the service sheet). The drag still seems weak, so I'm giving it 8. If you know how to upgrade drags, this one is for you. Line: 40lb Power Pro braid - not charging extra What's included: Just the reel and the box. I don't know where the manual and the little tool went. Purchase price: $400 Asking price: $315 shipped

  24. I have a large group of Rods I'm looking to sell, as well as a couple of baitcast reels. Several I bought recently for a trip to Florida and they ended up not getting used and are new with tags.
