The multi-sectioned DAIWA Saltiga AP rods are designed for uncompromising application under harshest conditions in tropical destinations. Closed lengths of 67cm to 78cm allow a straightforward transport in the luggage – expensive rod transportation tubes from now on belong to the past.
The lineup of the Saltiga Air Portable series offers a small assortment for the uncompromising application in the tropics and other big fish destinations.
To ensure safe fishing for strong fighting target fishes like GT, Tuna, Cubera, Amberjack, Rooster & Co., the rod blank, reel seat, guides and spigot joints have to be of utmost high quality. HVF carbon fiber blanks with X45 technology are extremely durable and twist resistant – accurate casts and controlled lure presentation are possible every time.
The backbone of the Saltiga rods offers huge power reserves to control large specimen during the fight and to lead them away from hazardous areas and reefs with completely closed drag. The tip action accelerates hardbaits to very good casting distances. Underwrapped Fuji SiC double leg K-guides resist even toughest strains. The V-Joint spigot joint connections are reinforced with a special BIAS carbon fiber material which leads to incredibly robust joints with a perfectly harmonic bending curve. The difference to a two-sectioned rod is hard to detect!
Original Fuji reel seats with double screw secure heavy spinning reels permanently and prevent a loosening of the reel during the fight. Ergonomically shaped Hard-EVA handles are pleasant to grab, offer an optimal power transmission and prevent too quick exhaustion during fishing.
The three-sectioned model with a length of 1.70m has been developed for speed jigging in medium to large depths. The extremely stiff blank with a casting weight of 180-400g is perfectly balanced and offers huge power reserves for the fight.
Depending on the model these rods are also very well suited for fishing in Norway for cod, coalfish and halibut!
