The Saltiga series of reels has made many anglers dreams come true.
In 2020 Saltiga will return to the market with the introduction of a MQ body and brand-new cosmetics.
The larger diameter radiation drag knob with heat sink system coupled with a newly designed drive gear brings
strength and smoothness to the reel whilst the latest technology spool creates troubles free casts.
By adding every element of newly developed Daiwa Technology,
we are certain by far that the 20 Saltiga is the toughest reel produced throughout the long history of Saltiga.
The Larger Diameter
Being able to trust your reel while in
use becomes a major advantage for an angler.
The larger diameter and the added thickness will reduce
the amount of wear including twist and deformation to
the drive and also to the pinion gears.
In comparison to 15 Saltiga, it is more than double the strength.
MQ Body will take the reel
to the next level
Up until 20 Saltiga, reel bodies consisted of
two key elements known as a body and body cover.
The MQ System does not require a body cover,
it allows an Engine plate to screw on direct to the body.
Therefore, the body no longer has a need for body cover screws,
this development allows a larger diameter drive gear
to be fitted providing the reel with more power.
The aim is to create perfect water resistance
From the first Saltiga,
a water resistance system has been a must have technology.
Starting off with rubber sealing,
evolving to the way of Magseal system then
the addition of Magseal bearings.
Now with the MQ Body system,
20 Saltiga has finally obtained perfect a water resistance system.
After a great success of Magseal, Daiwa has decided to install the Magseal system into a ball bearing. By adding the fluid, it creates a magnetic seal within the bearings to support and reduce the amount of saltwater intrusion. Instead of the use of rubber seals, its far more effective and creates smoother spin of the reel. In 20 Saltiga, Daiwa has installed the Magseal bearings on each side of drive gear just like 15 Saltiga. This structure will protect the internals of the reels and eliminate intrusion of saltwater.
MAGSEALED LINE ROLLER
Out of all the components within the reel, the Line Roller takes the most damage from the salt, sand and other elements your line picks up whilst fishing. By adding the Magseal bearing into the line roller assembly, it makes the roller remain smooth and extends its life. The long life of the Magseal line roller bearing system will decrease the amount of line troubles whilst fishing.
The aluminum air rotor
The aluminum air rotor is more than
double the strength compared to the 15 Saltiga.
It is also 1.5 times more durable compared
the original Saltiga (2002 Model).
The test results of the rotor strength.The test put the same amount of force through both rotors,Shown in the images, 15 Saltiga has taken an impact around the bail arm/wire section.(Highly impacted part of the rotor is shown in Red)In comparison, AL Air Rotor on 15 Saltiga is more red compared to the 20 Saltiga.
The aluminum air rotor is more than double the strength compared to the 15 Saltiga.It is also 1.5 times more durable compared AL Air Rotor on original Saltiga (2002 Model).
New generation drag system
In comparison to 15 Saltiga Drag washer,
it is more than 10 times stronger and less likely to burn out quick.
We have added more drag washers,
which means workload gets spread evenly across the drag stack.
By designing the washers with a slightly smaller diameter,
it runs a lot smoother.
Smaller means the per drag washer Max Drag Kg
will decrease but we have solved that issues by adding more washers.
Aluminum Radiation Drag Knob with large diameter improves heat dissipation and operability.
Spool's temperture after releasing drag.Improved heat dissipation reduces washer burn-in and reduces line degradation due to heat.
In comparison to 15 SALTIGA which has 6 washers, 20 SALTIGA has add more 14 washers.
Possible for the further approach
by adoption of LC-ABS.
20 SALTIGA was adopted LC(Long casting)-ABS.
Double taper spool edge can release line smoothly
and reduces fluttering properly.
It realized non-trouble and long casting.
LINE UP & SPEC
