A Reel Expedition

DAIWA has taken its reel technology even further with the introduction of “Magsealed bearings” into the new Saltiga Expedition range.

In 2010 the Saltiga introduced its revolutionary Magseal design, which revolves around magnetic fluid. Developed by NASA to magnetically deliver fuel to space ships, this lubrication system avoids any friction and prevents dust intrusion, eliminating oil spray and significantly improving reel life expectancy. The challenge for Daiwa was to utilise the inherent benefits of magnetic liquid in reel design. Not content just with magsealing the rotor/anti-reverse system, the new Expedition series introduces an all new revolution in ultra smooth rotation and water sealing.

Magsealed bearings are placed in key points in the reel to prevent water intrusion, increase rotation smoothness and increase part longevity. The new bearings are Magsealed; unlike the Magseal used in the rotor system the new bearings are a fully contained Magsealed bearing. These bearings are placed in the line roller system and the gear system so to eliminate water and salt intrusion into the gearbox and line roller system.

Other introductions in the new Expedition series includes a new body design standard; with super metal super precision machine cut technology Daiwa says it has achieved its finest design ever, with a precision four times that of the original model. The new drag system called “UTD Hyper Tune” uses an all new carbon and metal washer system combined with a specifically designed grease that provides ultra smooth performance especially when the drag pressure exceeds 10 kilograms.

The Zaion Air Rotor is a super strong light rotor designed to disperse pressure to the entire lower section of the rotor, dramatically decreasing stress and flexing. Working in conjunction with the Mag Seal the Air Rotor has been hollowed out to create airflow through the whole rotor system.

The new Saltiga Expedition also features design innovations such as Real Four, Hyper Digigear, Airbail and CRBB.
