The introduction of the Daiwa Saltist reel gives hardcore offshore anglers a great $200 spinning reel. The reel features a waterproof drag system and an important full time anti-reverse that you can rely on. The gear ratio is 6:2:1 and retrieves 53 inches of line per crank. What we really like about these reels is the line capacity and weight. The largest model which is the STT6500H holds over 500 yards of 70lb braid while weighing only 24.4oz.

I bought the 6500h and loaded it with 65lb spectra to use on my jigging rod. I also use it off the beaches and it has held up on well on big sharks. It is a $200 reel as stated in the reel, so I don't expect it to not require maintenance of a highly priced reel and if the drag or crank busted on a 300lb shark, it would not dissapoint me. I am yet to have a failure yet and have busted some pretty big fish that have put it to the test. I fish a lot of drag too. I'll revisit this review in about a year for an update.
