NEW Daiwa Saltist MQ

Rate this topic

27 posts in this topic

And there’s this...

 

The Saltist you have come to know and love has been redesigned and upgraded. Still featuring a heavy duty aluminum frame for maximum durability, we have now added our Monocoque Body (MQ) for even more power and a more compact frame. An MQ frame design allows us to fit a larger gear inside of the reel, adding power and longevity to your gear set. A 360 degree screw-in sideplate removes the need for traditional sideplate screws, allowing for a more compact and more weather resistant housing. 
Complete with a Zaion AIR ROTOR for effortless rotation and a Magsealed main shaft to maximize protection from the elements. Available in a wide range of sizes from a compact 2500 perfect for inshore fishing, up to a heavy duty 20000 to take on the toughest offshore predators- The Saltist MQ is truly a prime example of what a spinning reel should be capable of.

They're advertising this along with the MQ Ballistic as "Tough Digigear" vs simple "Digigear". Is there anything to this or is it just a new marketing term?

My BG MQ says Tough Digigear too. Might just be marketing but I’m thinking it’s

 a beefier, reinforced gear that should hold up better over time.

I'm beginning to think it's the same material as the BG. I have not heard or read any mention of what the material used for the gear is. The thing seems to be shrouded in mystery. I hope i'm wrong but i'm getting a bad feeling.

I think it is one sexy reel. I would guess same gear material. 

The BG gears are honestly not a problem at all so for me it’s not a deal-breaker. I definitely appreciate the sealing though for surf-fishing/wave splashes.

I owned the last saltist and it lasted one season before needing to be sent to the factory to be serviced, for $60 and some magsealed lube that only the factory can dish out. Can't even get reel serviced on the east coast. Last Daiwa reel i will be purchasing. Wish Penn would step it up, but Shimano is in a league of its own.

I’ve heard enough bad things about the Saltist to stay away but I will say my BG MQ 6000 has been great so far. Every company has hits and misses, Daiwa included.

I was just going to say something we all know which is that your YouTube tutorial on the BG may have helped theyre marketing. How many hits did you have on that tutorial ?
