Had a nice conversation with Beastly yesterday and I’m looking to see if I can find out some more information. I recall Scooby’s video on the 2018 Saltist Star Drag. There were a number of differences between it and the Saltiga. One being that it has a plastic set plate. I’m curious if we have information/photos on the Trinidad, Ocea Jigger, Tern? Any of the popular Star Drag conventionals? I’ve handled the 2011 Ocea Jigger. I love it. I thought the intervals were supposed to be superior to the Trini. Why do we like it so much? Which are internally actually made the best? I believe the Saltiga has a metal set plate. But I’m not sure. Found some photos from a maintenance tutorial on the Alan Tani site. Does anyone know for sure? Thanks.
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.
Selling a Brand New never used Seigler SM star drag in red #305. Purchased, spooled with Jbraid 50# but never saw the outside of my house. Asking $350 shipped. Also for sale is a very good condition, 9/10 cosmetically, 10/10 mechanically Saltiga Z 4000H I recently purchased from a member here. Reel is buttery smooth, spooled with 45#, 100% made in Japan.
