Daiwa Saltiga 6500H spinning reel

While fishing for monster GTs and other saltwater species in Maldives, my reel of choice was the Daiwa Saltiga 6500H,  This beast put out a powerful 66lbs of drag while holding 440yards of 80lbs braid.  The gear ratio of 5:7:1 made it very easy casting large poppers to the GTs.  The 15 bearings made the reel very smooth.  It is has a lightweight aluminum spool with carbon accents and air rotor design featuring corrosion proof Zaion carbon construction keeping the weight at 28.9oz.  .  It has a manual bail trip for reliability.  It features a magseal to keep saltwater out.  I had no issues with this fantastic piece of machinery!  I highly recommend you check out this reel on your next visit to battle Giant Trevally in Maldives or whereever your adventure takes you.
