Overhead PE3-4 Jigging Combo Daiwa Saltist V2
This combo is a great bang for buck set up for both Jigging and Bait fishing for all pelagic species. The Saltist V2 rods are a tough rod that will not let you down and the same goes for the Saltist Star Drag reel. To keep the weight down this combo comes with a Saltist Star Drag 20H, that will still hold 300m of the Daiwa J Braid X4 40lb. We choose to spool the reel with Daiwa J Braid X4 as it is a stong and wear resistant braid with a long life expectancy. The combo is designed to jig up to 200g jigs making it a good all round combo that you can use on inshore reefs and on offshore reefs up to 120m or so depending on conditions. The combo doubles as a great live baiting, downrigging and bait fishing combo too.

DAIWA SALTIST HYPER V2 OVERHEAD FISHING ROD
Any product carrying the Saltist name invokes a level of trust and dependability few others can match. The original Saltist Hyper is arguably the cause of such a feeling, with thousands of anglers Australia wide relying on the rods during some of their most memorable moments on the water. Now in 2020, a new generation of Saltist Hyper is here. Leveraging all of Daiwa’s advancements in rod technology, 20 Saltist Hyper introduces Next Gen X45 technology to masses of offshore anglers who’ve seen what it can do on rod ranges like Spartan before it.
The blank of the all-new 20 Saltist Hyper is where the bulk of the advancements have been made. Next Gen X45’s ability to increase torsional stiffness works wonders on offshore rods, where casting performance using heavyweight lures can often mean the difference between catching a fish and going home empty-handed. 20 Saltist Hyper rods feel crisper and more responsive than their predecessors, and outcast and outperform them across all levels. The distinct blue colouration of Saltist Hyper continues, but this time it is clear so all anglers can see the distinct Next Gen X45 pattern.
A newly developed grip section catches the eye thanks to the unique spiral foregrip. First made popular on the Daiwa Tatula range of baitcast rods, the spiral grip provides a firm grasp, even when wet. As always, quality Fuji components outfit the 20 Saltist Hyper series from the newly released Corrosion Control (CC) Fuji ‘O’ ring guides and Fuji branded reel seats and butt caps.
The 20 Saltist Hyper brings with it a host of new actions dedicated to the growth in the lure casting sportfishing market that is so prevalent in coastal Australian waterways. Whether it’s throwing stickbaits for tuna or reef species over shallow coral flats, or throwing a timber hardbody off the break walls of the northern rivers for mulloway, there’s now a 20 Saltist Hyper for almost every conceivable mission.
FUJI STAINLEES STEEL GUIDES
Light, strong, and highly corrosion resistant, Fuji stainless steel guides are tailor-made for Australia’s harsh conditions.
HVF (High Volume Fibre) combines precise resin control with unidirectional graphite fibre to produce a blank with maximum graphite density, making it incredibly sensitive, light and responsive.
Bias construction within the ferrule allows it to flex with the rod, eliminating the weak, unbending spot caused by ordinary ferrules. The result of this revolutionary technology is a multi-piece blank that matches the performance of one-piece blanks in flex, power and responsiveness.
Developed to eliminate blank twist and increase power, X45 features a Bias Wrap Construction, left/right 45 degree carbon weave within the blank. X45 radically improves rod strength and durability by eliminating twist and preventing the blank from losing its round form. The elimination of this twist allows for a lighter, stronger and more powerful and sensitive rod.
DAIWA SALTIST STAR DRAG 20H OVERHEAD FISHING REEL
Combing Daiwa’s latest designs with the integrity and strength that has made the Saltist name famous the new Saltist SD (Star Drag) delivers on all levels. Loaded with many of Daiwa newest and most advanced design technologies this is a reel that’s rock solid in strength yet light enough to use all day and is designed to perfectly balance with your chosen rod for unmatched in-hand comfort and performance.
Continuing on from the famed Daiwa Saltiga Star Drag, the new Saltist Star Drag is based on the same bulletproof body but die-cast instead of forged. Constructed of aluminium and anodized for maximum corrosion resistance, the new Saltist Star Drag is designed to handle whatever treatment the corrosive marine environment has to throw at it.
The Saltist Star Drag’s internals are equally made to last and perform thanks to Daiwa’s famous Digigear gear technology. Digigear features a digitized, high precision cutting technique that achieves perfect gear meshing and ultra smooth performance. Made from a new-age alloy, Digigear is ultra strong, corrosion resistant, and lighter than any gear that Daiwa have developed before. This reduction in weight allows larger gears to be used, in-turn achieving greater gear and reel durability and providing superior gear performance, strength and precision.
Featuring stainless steel ball bearings for maximum corrosion resistance, and a centrifugal braking system for effortless, user friendly casting adjustment and control, the Saltist Star Drag’s casting performance is stunning to say the least with its true freespool feature allowing long effortless casts regardless of the conditions or the angler.
This uninhibited spool design allows for effortless line payout, making the Saltist Star Drag perfect for techniques and fishing styles such as livebaiting and float lining.
A 6.4:1 gear ratio makes the Saltist Star Drag the perfect all-rounder whether you’re jigging the depths for Samson fish, floating lining for snapper or trying to muscle kingfish from cover.
The Saltist Star Drag doesn’t lack muscle either with plenty of pulling power at your fingertips thanks to its powerful and smooth drag.
With a maximum drag ranging from 8-12kg depending on the model in the range, and a deep spool made to house a tonne of line the Saltist Star Drag is a reel designed to tame whatever is thrown at it.
Available in six sizes, from baby in the range the 15H, to the big dog, the 50H, and with a price tag that’s sure to impress the Saltist Star Drag is a reel that punches well above its weight yet doesn’t breaking the bank.
