The Diawa Saltist is a great reel under rated and under used up here with us Yanks Down South they love Diawa for everything.. just an Observation:thumbsup: ..I also like my Avets too.Daiwa Saltist is a great reel for about $150. Another good one is the Sealine XHA for about $100 to $125. Love them both! :thumbsup:
I have been using this reel for quite some time no trouble and I like it.I looked up that tranX for a 500 size $499. 50 # prower pro thats a bit much for fluke. Larry Dhalberg was using it in the Gulf oil rigs catching dolphin, tuna and looked like an Amberjack.I will check one out at the saltwater show but dout if I ever buy one.What are your prefences? I just saw the shimano tranx, wow thats nice, anyone use that? How about the curado?
