Daiwa's completely redesigned Saltiga LD series features the smoothest, most powerful and dependable lever-drag reels available today.
All Saltiga LD reels feature a one-piece machined aluminum frame and side plate to assure precise alignment of bearings and gears for amazingly smooth performance, less flex, more power and reduced binding even during the fiercest battles. Oversized, super-hard, polished and meshed stainless steel main and pinion gears fit together perfectly to drive the kicking gear with extra strength and nearly silent precision while large spool bearings reduce side load so anglers can concentrate on fighting fish rather than the reel.
Daiwa's acclaimed Advanced Tournament Drag System (ATD) keeps each Saltiga LD cool during the heat of battle while providing consistent maximum pressure through the end game. A machined aluminum spool won't bend under high drag pressure or outwardly expand as you tightly wind on line. A machined aluminum rod clamp always keeps your reel tightly secured.
Max drag ranges from 22 to 45 pounds for most models while line retrieve per handle turn runs from 39.90 to 47.0 The tournament style sailfish models have a max drag setting of 22 pounds and line pick-ups of 54.30 to 56.0
