Daiwa Saltist Slow Jig PE2 Combo With Lexa 300 H-P
A great Snapper, Pearl Pearch and inshore combo. This combo is as light as it gets in weight when it comes to PE2, a perfect combo to jig with with all day and is rated for jigs from 80-200g but will still work well with smaller jigs from 40-80g on the inshore reefs. The reason being is you cannot hurt a rod fishing under the rating and still get action out of them as opposed to fishing jigs too heavy. The reel is the Daiwa Lexa 300 and is a power house little baitcaster with a Power Handle to match. The Saltist Hyper rods are an extremely well built rod and will not fail you and the Saltist Hyper V2 also features a blank guard to protect the blank where it would usually rub against the bare blank when in the holder on most other typical Slow Jig split butt rods. The combo comes spooled with Daiwa X4 J Braid Multi, we choose this as the X4 braid is more wear resistant and has a longer life expectancy than 8 Carrier braids. The Lexa HSP has a slightly faster retreive making for a quicker retreive when bringing your lure back up to the surface, The H-P has a lower gear ratio (slower retreive) for more power fighting the fish, but not enough either way to make either reel better or worse, they will both perform very well.

DAIWA 21 SALTIST HYPER SLOW JIG OVERHEAD FISHING RODS
With the rise in popularity of the specialist slow jigging market, Daiwa has expanded its offering with the introduction of the brand-new Saltist Hyper range of specialist slow jig rods.
Saltist Hyper SJ expands on the ever-popular range of Saltist Hyper rods which were upgraded in 2020 and gives the offshore angler even more choice in one of the best bang-for-buck rod ranges available.
Combining Daiwa’s HVF graphite with newly released X45X Full Shield technology, the action and responsiveness of these rods has to be seen to be believed for the price. X45X Full Shield graphite increases torsional stiffness, which reduces blank twist under load. Something that is important in a jigging rod where the up and down motion of working a jig can mean a lot of lost potential energy through twisting of the rod blank. By reducing this twisting force, the rod recovers much faster meaning the action of your jig will be improved.
Outfitted with Fuji stainless steel ‘O’ ring guides and Fuji reel seats, the new Saltist Hyper SJ exudes quality & refinement.
Made at the preferred 6’2” length for the optimum action, Saltist Hyper SJ is available in both overhead and spin configurations in PE 2, 3 & 4 variations.
X45X FULL SHIELD
X45X Full Shield Technology is 25% more efficient than standard X45 technology. With increased torsional stiffness, blanks armed with X45X resist blank twist during casting & jigging. This characteristic prevents the blank from losing stored energy during the cast, ensuring that every bit of force you put into your cast, is transferred through the blank and ultimately to your chosen lure.
FUJI REEL SEAT
Light, strong and true to the famous brand’s reputation for quality and class, Fuji reel seats deliver on performance and value.
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.
