Servicing a Daiwa Saltist Two Speed Lever Drag Reel

A four part video tutorial from ReelSpeed on servicing a Daiwa Saltist LD35 two speed reel. The principals apply to all the reels in the Saltist two speed range.

The Saltist LD Lever Drag series fishing reels are built tough with a rugged “full metal jacket” construction with virtually all components being metal for maximum reliability while most competitor reels at this price point are full of graphite components. Built to handle modern ultra-strong braided lines the frame and side plates are all constructed of a single piece rigid aluminium alloy.

The Saltist main gears are machined from Daiwa’s exclusive high strength stainless steel stock. These gears have very tight tolerances for extra high strength and a smooth retrieve feel.With a powerful ratio and rigid frame support the Saltist should deliver exceptional winding power right out of the box. Backed up by the all new lever drag UTD – Ultimate Tournament Drag, a system that features stainless plates and a grease impregnated fibre washer, offering super-smooth drag pressure up to 22% greater than the max drag of competitor reels of the same size. The secret rests in the wet drag system which effectively combats performance robbing heat while maintaining maximum contact with the disc’s surface.
