  • The Daiwa 23 Saltiga represents the pinnacle of Daiwa engineering over the last decade, featuring every piece of technology it can to make it Daiwa's best ever mid-size saltwater spin reel produced to date. It's the first time a heavy-duty saltwater Daiwa reel has featured their Airdrive Design, where a very low startup inertia is the goal. By redeveloping the shape of the rotor assembly, Daiwa engineers were able to both reduce the weight & maintain the strength of the reel. The bail assembly also adds to the Airdrive Design concept, where a hollow and tubular stainless steel structure is now thinner and lighter than before, and the newer shape guides the line perfectly onto the roller that has also been redesigned with the implementation of Twistbuster III to reduce line twist even further. These features are all built on Daiwa's Monocoque (MQ) Body, a solid one-piece aluminium body that enables the fitment of a much larger drive gear, increasing torque & power. It also makes the reel much more impervious to the elements, further sealing the gearcase from saltwater ingress. Daiwa's Magseal technology in the body, the bearings either side of the drive gear, and line roller, further improve the Daiwa 23 Saltiga's imperviousness to harsh saltwater conditions. Whether you're looking to fish soft plastics offshore, lures from the stones, or casting along the shallow reef flats, the Daiwa 23 Saltiga Reel is your best quality option from Daiwa.


    • Twistbuster III - An evolution of Twist Buster II, Twist Buster III features a newly designed groove in the line roller further eliminates twist of the line as it enters the spool, reducing line twist and minimising problems.
    • Airdrive Design - Daiwa’s new Airdrive Design, a four pillar (Airdrive Rotor, Airdrive Bail, Airdrive Spool, and Airdrive Shaft) design concept that reduces weight, and enhances rotational smoothness and responsiveness to create a reel that is next level in both form and function.
    • Magsealed Body - Ultimate protection is delivered to the engine room of the reel with a magnetised oil seal located on the main shaft of the reel’s rotor shutting the door to the elements and unwanted intruders. Dust, water, and salt intrusion into the inner workings of a reel are a thing of the past with MagSeal.
    • Monocoque (MQ) - A one-piece frame eliminates the use of traditional two-piece body & sideplate construction. A single piece body utilises a screw-in engine plate to house the main gear, reducing flex and twist under load creating a sealed mechanism. The elimination of the side plate has also allowed for a more compact body design. MQ technology not only makes reels stronger & better sealed, but also more compact.
    • Magsealed Bearings - Magsealed bearings either side of the drive gear minimise water intrusion from the handle or handle screw cap.
