Daiwa Saltist MQ Spinning Reel
Redesigned and upgraded to a new generation, the Daiwa Saltist MQ Spinning Reels take giant leaps into new technologies and manufacturing capabilities, stepping into a new range of sizes due to Daiwa's MQ frame (Monocoque Body) design. Daiwa's MQ frame allows for a much larger gear set to be added to each reel as well as 360-degree screw-in side plates. The MQ frame essentially a one-piece body design, eliminating the traditional side plate and replacing it with what they call an "engine plate", screwing into the reel directly. The traditional side plate and all the screws that come along with it are eliminated, therefore giving more room to fit larger gears and other internals while not adding more bulk. Screws holding the traditional side plate on also are eliminated, giving that reel even fewer entry points for sand, water, grime and other debris from entering the reel, prolonging its life and giving the user more time to think of fishing rather than the maintenance of their reel.
The Saltist MQ utilizes a Zaion Air Rotor, giving it effortless rotation and balance with every turn of the handle. Its Zaion Rotor is perfectly complimented with its Air Bail, a design seen on mid to top tier Daiwa reels, which is a hollow tubular stainless steel bail, delivering maximum rigidity and strength with minimal added weight. At the heart of this reel sits Tough Digigears, a machine-cut gearing system that gives ultimate gear precision, rotational smoothness, and serious strength. This strength is only further enhanced with their new size thanks to the MQ frame, giving this reel all the capabilities to winch serious wreak fish out of cover or stand up to those drag-burning beasts whether it be inshore bonefish all the way to the pelagics offshore.
If the Daiwa Saltist MQ is anything like the predecessor, expect it to be the champ of the inshore and offshore game for your arsenal. With some serious improvements with technological and manufacturing capabilities, this reel is brought into a whole new level for fish to fear and anglers to enjoy their time on the water.
