The Daiwa Saltist Lever Drag 2-Speed Reel combines a compact lever drag design with the free-spool ability to easily toss live baits and hardware. This saltwater reel has a one touch gear shift with six corrosion resistant ball bearings. Not only that but precision stainless steel gears for smooth powerful winding. This is the ultimate tournament carbon drag (UTD) which gives you an offset power handle with a round speed knob. The aluminum frame and left side plate are one solid piece for unmatched strength.
