AIRDRIVE DESIGN was created to be the pinnacle, the one which all will follow. DAIWA has developed an innovative masterpiece allowing anglers to be in total control. Reduced weight, smooth rotation and high response allows the reel to spin freely. All of those combined elements come together to create AIRDRIVE DESIGN.
Unmatched power and toughness with total control. A high specification reel to pioneer a new era. Designed to exhibit full strength under pressure, catching the largest fish in the oceans with ease.
Full metal (AL) body construction with DAIWA’s original MONOCOQUE (MQ) body concept supports a machine-cut TOUGH DIGIGEAR made from G1 Duralumin to provide unmatched crank power and extra strength to the drive gear.
Designed to allow anglers to control fish under any conditions, with enough power to gain an extra wind against any large predator an angler may encounter.
Equipped with a new aluminium AIRDRIVE ROTOR to provide rotation with low inertia and extra strength, the reel is equipped with the latest advanced technology and specifications.
With support from a full metal MONOCOQUE (MQ) body concept, 23 SALTIGA 4000/5000/6000 has gained extra strength and retrieve power compared to other models in similar sizes.
By introducing MONOCOQUE (MQ) construction the internal body space has been increased to allow larger drive gear to be installed. MQ construction also allows the engine plate to replace the need for screws to stabilise the drive gear. MQ concept improves support of the internal parts and adds durability and resistance to intrusion.
Friction free rotation.
MAGSEALED bearings have been designed to last longer than traditionally sealed ball bearings. The balls are encapsulated in a completely waterproof housing. The inner and outer rings are magnetised and joined by waterproof and stable MAGSEALED oil.
This means the initial performance of the reel will be indefinitely preserved. The longevity is beyond comparison to a waterproof industrial bearing.
23 SALTIGA 4000/5000/6000 is equipped with MAGSEALED bearings on both sides of the drive gear.
