Drones, drones, drones! This is the talk of the angling industry. The Kingfisher in South Africa, together with Daiwa, has been paying close attention to this fast-growing facet. Working directly with drone anglers for some time now, The Kingfisher has spent a significant time on research and development before introducing the Daiwa Saltist Drone rod.

The Daiwa Saltist Drone Rod is the Rolls Royce of drone rods. As with all the Saltist series, Daiwa holds nothing back in delivering the ultimate performance for the angler that simply wants the best.

The Daiwa Saltist Drone rod is three-piece and 12?6?. It is incredibly light, yet stocky and strong, designed to effortlessly bring in that 8-10 ounce sinker with ease. This rod is also a great ?swim bait? rod. The High Volume Fibre (HVF) blank eliminates weak or flat spots. This ensures that the three-piece blank matches the flex, power and responsiveness of a one-piece blank. It further boasts all top-end components throughout this premium rod – Alps reel seat, Pacific Bay metal gimbal, Daiwa Winn Grip and Fuji guides.

The introduction of new HVF carbon technology unique to Daiwa has produced a parabolic-action rod that is thin, yet overwhelmingly powerful. A combination of precise resin control with unidirectional HVF graphite fibre produces a blank with maximum graphite density. Light, responsive, and crisp in action, HVF is unrivalled.

The Daiwa Saltist Drone rod comes complete in a travel bag, with a carry handle and shoulder strap.

Whether you are just starting to feel the bite of drone angling or have stepped up to be a seasoned pro, the Daiwa Saltist Drone rod has been created with you in mind, and is certainly worth looking into.
