DAIWA SALTIGA 20 8000 P
A powerful ally to beat all records
The essential Saltiga evolves and brings together the latest Daiwa technologies at the service of strong fisheries. In order to meet the needs of all fishermen, a new size system is applied to Saltiga 2020, as well as two types of cranks are proposed.
- Drag with ATD technology with carbon discs and great sound. Wide ergonomic aluminum drag button.
- Bearings: 12 + 1 with 2 MagSealed and 6 CRBB
- Monocoque body in painted aluminum in 5 layers and "Air Rotor" in aluminum
- Double-lip LC-ABS (Long Cast) coil for fluid line output
- Aluminum crank with oval shape (models X / XH) and round shape (model P)
- One-piece Air Bail and opening click
- Crown wheel machined in duralumin G1
Extensively redesigned and engineered from drag knob to handle, Daiwa says the new Saltiga features the most advanced list of features ever. At the heart of the re-design is the brand new Monocoque body. A single-piece body capable of holding much larger internal gearing components is machined from high-strength aluminium to provide unheralded strength and improved sealing.
A new G1 Drive Gear is thicker and larger in diameter by 12% with a newly designed Tough Digigear concept of larger and deeper cut teeth providing increased strength over its predecessor the 15 Saltiga.
Improvements have also been made to the spool & drag assembly, with drag pressures increased to 25/30kg. Previously limited by the spool’s capacity, Daiwa engineers created a new drag stack, increasing the number of washers to deliver more than 10 times the drag durability compared to its predecessor. All that pressure generates heat, and a newly designed aluminium Radiation Drag Knob delivers improved cooling & heat dissipation.
A newly designed ABS Longcast lip design offers improved casting performance and enhanced line management, while a brand-new aluminium Air Rotor delivers more than double the rigidity against the 15 Saltiga.
Protection from the elements has been elevated with a new screwless rear cover, a reduction in spool porting and a unique under-side lip in the spool design combining to reduce water intrusion into the reel.
Made in Japan and bulging with a long list of Daiwa’s most advanced technologies the 20 Saltiga is design excellence, strength and power.
