Saltist Commander

Daiwa innovation and technology combines together to deliver anglers the new ultimate light tackle jigging rods – Saltist Commander. Integrating of Daiwa’s latest technologies, the Commander series is designed to perform at the highest standard. Modern in looks, and refined, yet robust in design and performance the Commander range is true to its famous name delivering all the qualities that we’ve grown to love and expect from Daiwa jigging rods.

A great rod series starts with great blank design and combines many of Daiwa’s latest design and blank technologies. HVF carbon is where it all begins, with Daiwa’s low resin, high strength, reduced weight, high density carbon creating a rod that is lightweight, yet powerful and capable of punching well above its weight.

X45 wrapping technology features with in the series and involves a 45-degree carbon weave within the blank wrapping process to eliminate blank twist and increase power. The elimination of twist improves rod sensitivity, increases strength and allows the blank to perform at its optimum capability.

3DX further enhances blank performance and involves a three-dimensional carbon weave at the lower 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 new system allows the rod’s power to be located at the lower section of the rod for more power and less angler fatigue. This leaves the upper section of the blank to absorb all the weight during a battle with a large fish rather than the angler.

 Fuji K Concept system features a specifically designed, highly polished frame that eliminates line wrap, particularly with braided and PE lines, the pronounced forward tilt position in the guide frame to further minimize line tangle issues. Fuji reel seats with custom alloy components provide a rock solid connection between rod and reel, while their ergonomic design ensures supreme comfort for long days on the water,
