Hey Guys whats up with this Saltist reels.

Cheapest fishing Tackle is the only i mean only shop/person is saying that the Saltsist is not a good reel and the Torium is better. I have spoke to all u guys before about this reel and i have spoken to 7 different tackle shops and they all said this chap is talking nonsense and i was assured by all these people this is an excellent reel and i have spoken to anglers who has this reel for over a year and they do not have any problem.

QUESTION: WHY WHY IS CHEAPEST FISHING IS TRYING NOT TO PROMOTE SALTIST...

IS KINGS THE AGENT FOR DAIWA AND CHEAPEST TACKLE IS NOT BEING SUPPLIED OR WHAT OTHER REASON COPULD THERE BE?

You can speak to several people and get several different opinions. i prefer the saltist over the torium. however it does have it's faults. the coating on the reels scratches easily and the drag wears faster than a toriums. to cure the drag problem is easy, a set of leather drag washer's or a set of carbon tech washer's. as for the coating on the reel, you either have to find a place that can do marine grade anodising or just accept the look of a scratched up reel, i call them battle scars.

Hi there

I also have a saltist 50 and have caught a number of fish on it. A 65 kg sandy and a number of 40 to 60 kg skates and I have never had a problem. I currently have 600m of 65 lb braid and perlon .55 line and it works really well.

Sorry to all the Trini fans but I agree that the saltist retrieve is smoother and the braking power much better when you hook a big one....

Hi there

Remember always it is a case of supply and demand that affects prices. If the guys have planty of stock they will push that stock and can give a good price. If not then they will try and persuade you to look at another item. All fishing equipment to me is a personal choice based on budget as well as preferences and brands.

I have the full salltist range and not one of the reels have let me down..
