Daiwa 10kg Game Fishing Overhead Combo Saltiga LD with Tournament Game Rod
If you’re after the top of the line in light tackle game fishing, this is the perfect outfit for you. Daiwa has developed a super strong and durable, yet light and powerful Saltiga Overhead reel, with top of the line components built to last a lifetime, with the perfect rod to match. Daiwa’s Saltiga LD 2 speed reels have been proven not only themselves, but through their previous models, to be a super strong, long lasting reel, now equipped with the best and newest technology, super smooth winding, and very powerful yet smooth drag. The reel this combo is equipped with is a Daiwa Saltiga LD 2 Speed 35, which is the perfect size for light tackle game fishing, with enough line capacity to tackle whatever you hook. The combo is spooled with a braided line backing, and a monofilament topshot. The braided line used for this outfit is Daiwa’s top of the range J-Braid 8 strand braided fishing line. The reel has the spool capacity to be able to hold approximately 500 metres of 30lb J-Braid, which then allows you to fit approximately 150m of 10kg Momoi monofilament topshot, which is the top of the range in game fishing monofilament lines. The mono topshot is connected to the braid by a PR or FG knot, which has been proven to be one of the strongest braid to mono connections. The Daiwa Saltiga LD 2 Speed 35 also has the line capacity and drag capability to run a 15kg mono topshot, if you choose to change down the track, or just want a smaller, lighter reel to run 15kg line through. This braid backing and mono topshot has been increasingly popular in gamefishing, not just for light lines, but also up to 37kg and 60kg outfits, which is why Daiwa has spent the time making the perfect rod for the job. Daiwa’s Tournament Game Overhead rods are designed to be able to fish with this new age game fishing technique, being super lightweight yet strong, making it easy to fish stand up, even without a harness. The Daiwa Tournament Game Overhead rod has been made to have a nice soft tip, which is perfect when trolling lures with light guage hooks, driving that hook into a marlin without the risk of straightening the hook on the bite, and for live baiting with light lines to absorb the initial pressure of the hook up, but plenty of power down low if you need to put a little more hurt on a fish which is hanging down deep. Equipped with a slightly longer butt also gives you a much more comfortable position for winding with the reel up a little higher, particularly easier when not in a harness. Overall, this is a very well thought out light tackle game fishing combo by Daiwa, if you are after a combo you won’t need to replace for a lifetime and is a pleasure to use, this is the one for you.
This combo comes with:
– Daiwa Saltiga LD 2 Speed 35 Overhead Game Fishing Reel
– Daiwa 20 Tournament Game 8/10kg Fishing Rod
– Daiwa J Braid x8 Multi 500m 30 lb
– 150m of Momoi 10kg monofilament (if you wish to have 15kg line on this outfit, please call us or specify in your order)

Daiwa Saltiga LD 2 Speed 35 Lever Drag Overhead Game Fishing Reel
Introducing the brand new 20 Saltiga Lever Drag (LD), crafted from the ground up to meet the demands of hardcore saltwater anglers around the world.
Over half a decade in the making, Saltiga LD combines everything learnt from across the globe. From the USA, South Africa, New Zealand & Australia, every bit of feedback and learning has been absorbed and rolled into what can only be described as Daiwa’s best lever drag reel ever made.
It all starts with the precisely machined one-piece aluminium body and side plates. This rigid housing holds what sets Saltiga LD apart from the competition – a meticulously crafted drive gear & pinion gear made from insanely durable Stainless Steel. Stainless Steel gears are harder than brass and much more resistant to the harsh saltwater fields in which this reel will be used. Stainless Steel gearing is often criticised for lacking smoothness, but Daiwa engineers have overcome this, producing a gear set that is refined and smooth, yet more powerful & durable than anything else on the market.
Saltiga LD has had improvements in all areas of the reel, addressing areas of concern that top anglers identified with lever drag reels of the past. A drag cam design that is smooth and capable of handling both braid and monofilament lines is one of the obvious improvements. The lever itself has been totally redesigned to allow finite and precise drag control even at very low settings, a feature loved by livebait anglers especially. 20 Saltiga LD was designed to be beautifully simple, and incredibly strong. Available in single- and two-speed designs from size 10-60.
Daiwa’s Automatic Tournament Drag uses an improved drag grease that exhibits a low viscosity at rest, yet becomes more viscous immediately after drag start up. This reduces initial drag start-up inertia and combined with the structural changes of the ATD Drag System results in a smoother drag from the initial hook up.
A lever control system that allows drag pressure to be easily applied by pushing the lever forward. Allows for increased pressure to applied, and is ideal for jigging and deep water angling.
Lightweight and incredibly strong, Machine Cut Alloy provides body strength and reduced weight to be achieved without the cost and corrosion issues of other metals.
Harder & stronger than any other material, Stainless Steel significantly increases gear longevity. Unmatched against corrosion, Stainless Steel gears will help fight against pitting and premature wear which can lead to increased feedback.
