Product Description

Given the popularity of saltwater fishing, reducing water penetration into the reel is a major goal to minimise corrosion and promote longer life and better performance. If saltwater infiltrates a reel and dries, it crystallizes, and then erodes gears and bearings.

Through years of research and development, Daiwa found the solution – a membrane of magnetic oil, in conjunction with magnets between the body and the rotor of the reel, which greatly reduces the penetration of water inside the body via the main shaft. Being magnetized this lubrication system avoids any friction, reduces dust intrusion, eliminates oil spray and improves reel life expectancy.

Magseal debuted in 2010, cementing itself as the world’s most advanced spinning reel, this technology was used in many of other flagship reels like Saltiga, Caldia and Exist.

Not content with Magsealing the rotor/anti-reverse system, Daiwa introduced fully contained Magsealed bearings in the line roller system to attenuate water intrusion, maintain rotation smoothness (reducing line twist) and increase part longevity. The line roller bearings are the first part on the reel to contact saltwater. They are one of the hardest wearing parts in a reel, and are constantly working. The pressure of the line, continual water and salt impregnation destroys roller bearings quickly.

Introduced to spinning reels over 20 years ago, line roller bearings have now reached the pinnacle of evolution with the addition of Magsealed ball-bearings.

After the Line Roller, prevention of water ingress into the gear system via the reel handle is the next revolutionary step to maintain ultra smooth rotation and longevity of the reel. Traditional bearings require packing with grease or oil and metal or rubber seals which can restrain contamination by water and foreign matter.

This creates friction and impedes smooth rotation of the reel, while minimal twist in the bearings during rotation, can result in penetration of foreign matter, causing abnormal noise and declined rotational performance.

Daiwa has improved the use of traditional CRBB ball bearings by combining them with a fully contained external Magsealed membrane. Water intrusion via the Magsealed Ball Bearings is now a thing of the past, and when they are placed into the gearbox system of the reel, they prevent invasion of water and dust, maintaining the bearings original light, ultra smooth performance. Preventing dust and salt intrusion, greatly reduces reel noise and corrosion and ultimately improves the long-term durability of the reel.

Air Rotor has been standard on many Daiwa reels now, but 17 Saltiga BJ introduces the lightest and strongest rotor in this reel class.

Sensitivity is one of the strongest attributes of Air Rotor. The rotor is made from a highly sensitive, high-density carbon resin called Zaion. Zaion is a new material, composed of carbon resin and long carbon fibres. This high-density material is light, strong and resists corrosion, used in many of Daiwa’s reels, it far exceeds the strength of magnesium in a strength per unit weight comparison.

Zaion transmits vibration through the reel more efficiently than ever before. By hollowing out the rotor system, a lighter construction is created with more surface area, resulting in increased strength and greater transmission of vibration. With a decrease in weight, the balance has been fine-tuned. A lower centre of gravity and precise centre of axis allows the rotor to spin more efficiently with perfect balance. This decrease in weight, increased surface area and new Zaion construction transmits lure vibration to the angler like never before.

The biggest issue with many drag systems is that they are not smooth at the beginning of the drag.

ATD or Automatic Tournament Drag is the newest introduction into Daiwa spinning reels. On one level ATD implements structural changes to the spool metal of the reel that provides greater support of the spool across the entire length of the main shaft. This additional support of the spool reduces spool twist under load, promotes more even pressure on the drag washers and ultimately reduces “pulsing” of the drag when fighting the fish.

The second aspect of ATD, is an improved drag grease that exhibits a low viscosity at rest, yet becomes more viscous immediately after drag start up. This reduces initial drag start-up inertia and combined with the structural changes of the ATD Drag System results in a smoother drag from the initial hook up, allowing you to concentrate on the fight.

Strength is everything in a larger reel. A solid base is the most important component for any reel. 17 Saltiga utilizes the Monocoque Body. The Monocoque body is a symmetrical, one-piece structure that will revolutionize future generations of spinning reel design.

The Saltiga BJ 3500 and 4000 models were designed for offshore fishing or lure casting from rocky shores to target hard fighting fish like Kingfish. They need to be strong and resilient to the elements. Originally the Saltiga game models were extremely popular, introduced more than 15 years ago.

The gears of the new models are embedded in the one-piece Monocoque body construction. Previously the body and a side cover/plate held the gearing in place. The new design allows the BJ models to be more rigid, with a better sealing mechanism, heralding the arrival of the next generation in reel design.
