The Daiwa Saltist Gabon Special is the heavy hitter in the Saltist spinning range. Reach for this rod when big fish are on the menu. Tailor-made for throwing big lures in the surf and off the rocks, this is the perfect rod for medium to large pelagic fish like Tuna, Tarpon and the mighty Kingfish family.

Daiwa have pushed and refined the resin-to-carbon volumes and importantly, the performance of the different densities of carbon being used. By increasing the volume of fibre and reducing the amount of resin, the result can only be describe as ?more muscle, less fat?. The route to a finer rod, is ?High-volume Fibre? (HVF) that combines lowered volumes of resin to reduce weight with an increased amount of carbon to deliver more strength.

This rod produces massive power, able to muscle big fish back to the beach quickly.
