The New Daiwa Saltist MQ Reel Review [VIDEO]
The Daiwa Saltist MQ is designed to tackle the elements and provide a premier experience for those that want the most out of their inshore fishing reel.
Here is the full, unbiased review (and an on-the-water review is coming soon):
- Monocoque Body style (MQ design allows for reduced size and weight of the reel)
- Increased drag and easier to turn the handle
- A smaller compact body makes it a better reel for inshore fishing
- Larger sizes (5000 and 6000) are going to be lighter weight overall
- The aluminum round knob is rare to find and gives you less resistance
- Body and rotor made of Zaion (Zaion is Daiwa’s version of a composite plastic that is very lightweight and more durable than magnesium)
- Magsealed with a magnetized plate that creates low pressure where water and contaminants can’t make their way down the main shaft and into the body of the reel
- Threaded top that sits over the plate of the Magseal
- Light rubber seal at bottom of the main shaft that will also prevent water from going down the main shaft and into the rotor
- 22-lbs of drag on carbon fiber drag stack
- Solid aluminum body in a compact rigid design
- This is a pricey reel at $299.99 (but this is a high-quality investment)
- Rigid boot designed for protection but once taken off you can see the main gear and the oscillation can (separate piece not part of the aluminum body)
You can push this reel to the limits.
It is a quality reel that is an investment for an angler that desires a top-tier reel with specific advantages.
The Daiwa Saltist MQ is meticulously designed to be a finesse heavy-duty reel!
This reel is built to last and will withstand most elements.
