I received a new Diawa Saltist 40 line counter level wind in the mail Last Thursday. Spooled it up and hope to put it to good use this Wed. I will use it specifically for trolling stretches and diving plugs .The line counter if it works correctly will take some of the guess work out of how much line is out. I thought I was done forever with buying rods and reels but I had the points built up with my Cabelas card so what the heck. The wife gets treated so I treated myself to an early Fathers day gift.
