Product Description

The Saltiga heralded a giant leap forward in design, revolving around magnetic fluid. Developed by NASA to magnetically deliver fuel to space ships, this revolutionary innovation was introduced to the fishing industry in the 2010 Saltiga. Mixing a liquid with iron isn’t easy, but Daiwa has mastered it in the Saltiga range. When dispersed evenly through liquid, the iron oxide (magnetite) has a diameter of 1/100,000mm, so small that the surface area of the ferromagnetic particle is around 1/10th of a single influenza virus.

This new metallic grease/oil takes on a new effect, placed by itself it forms a typical liquid helical shape with the introduction of a magnetic force it changes shape similar to the android in Terminator II, attaching itself to any other metal to form a seal. So strong is this magnetic liquid that if placed in a container with a magnetic surface it would retain its shape even if the bottom were removed. Being magnetized this lubrication system avoids any friction and reduces dust intrusion, eliminating oil spray and significantly improving reel life expectancy.

The challenge for Daiwa was to utilise the inherent benefits of magnetic liquid in reel design. Instead of it being used to dustproof, Daiwa needed something that was waterproof. Innovative design was originally used in the rotor/anti-reverse system, combined new CRBB bearings with a magnetic oil membrane, it made water intrusion a thing of the past. Not content just with magsealing the rotor/anti-reverse system, the new Expedition series introduces an all new revolution in ultra smooth rotation and water sealing. Magsealed bearings are placed in key points in the reel to prevent water intrusion, increase rotation smoothness and increase part longevity. The new bearings are Magsealed, unlike the Magseal used in the rotor system the new bearings are a fully contained Magsealed bearing. These bearings are placed in the line roller system and the gear system so to eliminate water and salt intrusion into the gearbox and line roller system.

Other introductions in the new Expedition series includes a new body design standard, with super metal super precision machine cut technology Daiwa has achieved its finest design ever, with a precision of 4 times better compared to that of the original model. Ther new drag system called “UTD Hyper Tune” uses an all new carbon and metal washer system combined with a specifically designed grease that provides ultra smooth performance especially when the drag pressure exceeds 10 kilograms. Zaion Air Rotor, this super strong light rotor is like no other – a new revolution in strength and sensitivity. This design disperses pressure to the entire lower section of the rotor, dramatically decreasing stress and flexing. Working in conjunction with the Mag Seal the Air Rotor has been hollowed out to create airflow through the whole rotor system. This prevents foreign material such as water, salt, sand and dust collecting inside the reel, the added air flow eliminates moist build up in the reel preventing corrosion issues.

With other designs innovations like Real Four, Hyper Digigear , Airbail and CRBB are also utilized, the new Saltiga Expedition sets the standard as the best heavy duty reel available.
