Saltiga 2016 Rods

Lightness” and “strength”the high-dimensional and integrated next-generation Saltiga rods has arrived.

For over 15 years the original Saltiga rods set a new industry standard as the strongest and lightest offshore rods available. After all this time these rods are still envied by other manufacturers, a true testament of how advanced the rod’s technology was, they have remained unchanged, until now with the introduction of the Saltiga 16 series.

The debut of the latest Saltiga rods heralds its greatest advantage ever, a new design that produxes an amazingly thin and strong blank design.

Angling perfection starts on the top shelf with Daiwa’s latest carbon design. The introduction of new carbon technology unique to Daiwa has produced a parabolic action rod that is incredibly thin and lightweight yet overwhelming powerful. The secret is HVF (High Volume Fibre) Nanoplus. Combining precise Nano resin control with unidirectional HVF graphite fiber to produce a blank with maximum graphite density. Light, responsive, and crisp in action… “HVF nano plus” is unrivaled.

Saltiga blank performance is further enhanced courtesy of X45 and 3DX.

Two of Daiwa’s premier blank wrapping technologies, X45 and 3DX, work seamlessly together to improve rod performance, and eliminate blank twist and distortion to increases rod strength, function, and sensitivity. By eliminating twist and preventing the blank from losing its round form, X45 and Bias Wrap allows a lighter a small diameter blank to be made, and lighter more dynamic rod to be created.

3DX continues the advanced blank design with its three-dimensional woven process adding support to the lower power section of the rod. By knitting densely packed carbon fibres in 3 directions to create a six wrap rectangular weave, the power is distributed evenly in all directions, allowing the blank to maintain its form when loaded. This process increases the power and eliminates blank twist and collapse, and allows the rod’s power to be located at the lower section of the blank for maximum power and a reduction in angler fatigue.

Adding to the incredible blank design, these rods feature Fuji’s latest innovation Silicone carbide K and MN guides to eliminate line wrap, Fuji reels seats with locking rings and ultra tough EVA grips.

Crisp and lightweight in the hand, yet powerful and responsive in the heat of battle Saltiga with HVF Nanoplus delivers cutting edge design for ultimate performance
