2015 Daiwa Saltiga

IN 2010, Daiwa’s flagship saltwater reel, Saltiga introduced ground breaking technology with Digigear II, Magseal and Zaion Air Rotor setting the standard in high performance design and innovation.

In 2015, Daiwa continues its long tradition of innovation with the introduction of “Magsealed” bearings into the new Saltiga range.

What is Magseal?
Given the popularity of saltwater fishing, sealing a reel is a major goal. No leakage means no corrosion, longer life and better performance. If saltwater penetrates a reel and dries, it crystallises, and then erodes gears and bearings.

In order to increase the durability of the reel, Daiwa made waterproofing the reel structure an absolute priority. Through years of research and development, Daiwa found the solution – a membrane of magnetic oil, which shuts out saltwater. By using magnetised oil in conjunction with magnets, the oil attaches itself to the metal surfaces to form a seal. Being magnetised this lubrication system avoids any friction, prevents dust or water intrusion, eliminates oil spray and improves reel life expectancy.

Magsealed-bearing
Magseal technology was originally used in the rotor/anti-reverse system, to make water and dust intrusion a thing of the past. However, not content with just Magsealing the rotor/anti-reverse system, the new 2015 series introduces an all-new revolution in ultra smooth rotation and water sealing.

Fully contained Magsealed bearings are placed in key points of the line roller system and the gear system of the reel to prevent water intrusion, increase rotation smoothness and increase part longevity.
