Daiwa Saltist 40

Out of nowhere few days back, i realised that I've never posted this reel on my blog :-p Bought this quite a while ago as a backup to the Accurate 665. But have only used it once for bottom fishing. Loaded it with 300yds of 50lbs P-Line and changed the knob.

hi , came across your blog while surfing for information on the Saltist 40, was wondering whether the real is suitable for jigging/bottom/trolling?
and how much is the reel cost now? did you bought it at kepong? mind to share some info to a newbie...

I think it's more suitable for bottom and trolling rather than jigging. The reel is quite wide... which makes it a bit awkward in terms of positioning... I think la...

Price... i really can't remember... yes i bought it at Sykt Kepong. All my reels from there.

Around the same price, I think the Avet SX is a better choice :) Love that reel.

Got this knob from Kepong quite long ago. This is original Daiwa, so no need modification. Just fit straight. Those need mod ones are not ori Daiwas...
