Arguably the most sought after and long-awaited release in recent Daiwa history, a small-size Saltiga is now available. 23 Saltiga represents the pinnacle of Daiwa engineering progress over the past decade, and features every bit of technology to make the new SALTIGA the best mid-size saltwater spin reel Daiwa has ever produced.

"The Daiwa 23 Saltiga was the definite stand out of new releases from the Yokohama Tackle Show 2023 and was a series that anglers most inquired about in store and online at our store.

Leading The Way
AIRDRIVE DESIGN was created to be the pinnacle, the one which all will follow. DAIWA has developed an innovative masterpiece allowing anglers to be in total control. Reduced weight, smooth rotation and high response allows the reel to spin freely. All of those combined elements come together to create AIRDRIVE DESIGN.

“TOUGH & TECHNICAL” to pioneer a new era in SW fishing scene.
Unmatched power and toughness with total control. A high specification reel to pioneer a new era. Designed to exhibit full strength under pressure, catching the largest fish in the oceans with ease.

Full metal (AL) body construction with DAIWA’s original MONOCOQUE (MQ) body concept supports a machine-cut TOUGH DIGIGEAR made from G1 Duralumin to provide unmatched crank power and extra strength to the drive gear.

Designed to allow anglers to control fish under any conditions, with enough power to gain an extra wind against any large predator an angler may encounter.

Equipped with a new aluminium AIRDRIVE ROTOR to provide rotation with low inertia and extra strength, the reel is equipped with the latest advanced technology and specifications.

Rigid one piece body

With support from a full metal MONOCOQUE (MQ) body concept, 23 SALTIGA 4000/5000/6000 has gained extra strength and retrieve power compared to other models in similar sizes.

By introducing MONOCOQUE (MQ) construction the internal body space has been increased to allow larger drive gear to be installed. MQ construction also allows the engine plate to replace the need for screws to stabilise the drive gear. MQ concept improves support of the internal parts and adds durability and resistance to intrusion.

Torque and power

New gear design combined with G1 Duralumin material creates the pinnacle of gear strength and precision. With increased strength of up to 130% to support the reel under the harshest conditions.

This gear design reduces the amount of wear, including twist and deformation to both the drive & pinion gears. This gear design combined with MQ body creates the pinnacle of saltwater spinning reels.

Performance preserved

MAGSEALED is a technology that implements a special liquid material developed originally for aerospace engineering called MAGOIL. MAGOIL is used to create a water and dust-resistant barrier in lieu of traditional rubber seals.

This is an innovative water resistance method that maintains rotational performance. The ultimate focus of MAGSEAL was to protect the gearing inside the reel body and the bearings. Two of the key components to protect if overall performance is to be preserved.

Friction free rotation

MAGSEALED bearings have been designed to last longer than traditionally sealed ball bearings. The balls are encapsulated in a completely waterproof housing. The inner and outer rings are magnetised and joined by waterproof and stable MAGSEALED oil.

This means the initial performance of the reel will be indefinitely preserved. The longevity is beyond comparison to a waterproof industrial bearing.

23 SALTIGA 4000/5000/6000 is equipped with MAGSEALED bearings on both sides of the drive gear.

Effortless rotation

AIRDRIVE ROTOR gives control back to the angler, allowing the reel to perform exactly as intended by lowering the inertia required to both start & stop winding rotation. By showcasing an easy winding sensation, AIRDRIVE ROTOR allows the angler to react quickly and instantly to bites, especially on slack line.

By reducing the weight of the rotor and re-shaping the design, the rotation of the reel has been improved. Lower inertia gives better control with reduced effort required by the angler.

Precise line flow

To enhance its position for power & strength, 6000 size Saltiga is equipped with F3.0mm tubular AIRDRIVE BAIL. To support the reduced weight of the rotor and maintain the sensitivity, 4000 & 5000 Saltiga is equipped with F2.4mm bail. Carefully crafted for each size, a reduced wire diameter is realised whilst maintaining the strength anglers are used to with DAIWA’s AIR BAIL.

DAIWA has also re-engineered bail trip mechanism with aim to provide a precision open & close movement to give enhanced feeling to angler while in use.

Low friction oscillation

AIRDRIVE SHAFT has a non-contact structure between the mainshaft and the pinion gear.

In addition to this, both ends of pinion gear are now supported with bearings to transmit the crank power from the handle to the rotor with a higher level of efficiency. By adding high quality collars to the mainshaft, rotational noise has been reduced significantly.

AIRDRIVE SHAFT creates the feel of smooth, quiet rotation and provides anglers with enhanced torque and power.
