CYPRESS, CA- DAIWA is excited to announce the release of a new salt water spinning reel that will be the standard for inshore and bay saltwater fisherman country wide. The SALTIST BACK BAY LT SPINNING REEL employs the revolutionary HARDBODYZ design that utilizes an aluminum metal alloy with a maximum of strength and rigidity and a minimum of weight. The AIR ROTOR and AIR BAIL also serve to keep the weight down without sacrificing strength. These design features combine to create one of the lightest, strongest reels on the saltwater market. Built with 6 stainless steel ball bearings and one roller bearing, the BACK BAY is one the smoothest light tackle saltwater reels available. The MAG SEALED main shaft and bearings employ a magnetic oil that seals the bearing surfaces from salt water intrusion without adding any friction, an important feature in a salt water reel. The machined reinforced aluminum aloy DIGIGEAR™ DIGITAL GEAR DESIGN assures smooth, rugged performance with digitally milled gearing that maximizes the efficiency of the gear-tooth interaction.Ideally suited for 8- and 10-pound test mono and equivalent braid, the SALTIST BACK BAY SPINNING REEL is Daiwa’s state of the art interpretation of the perfect light tackle backwater spinning reel.
