A super great smooth casting reel of fine, fine quality.
Having used my SALD20-2 Speed Leverdrag reel for about a year now, I can tell you that it is the smoothest retrieving, easiest cranking lever drag reel I have ever owned. My most memorable moment was when I caught a 32 lb striper and was tiring when bringing him in. I clicked the low gear button and the reel turned into an absolute muscle machine. I don't think I could have gotten the striper in without either the low gear or some help from my brother. Now, wouldn't that have been embarrassing? Yes, give me the Daiwa SALD-20 2-Speed anytime, I just love it!!
ProsEsthetically beautiful Exceptionally smooth retrieve mega powerful low gear the quality of this reel is quite evident
ConsPrice. What's a few bucks anyway? Give up dinner with your wife a few times to overcome this, which is the only con I could find. She'll never miss it, and this reel will last a lifetime.

If you like to fish and fish hard, this reel is for you! Purchased one at the beginning of the season and will now be replacing all my conventional reels with the Saltiga. Looks great. Feels great. And the lever drag system is unreal. I have nothing bad to say about this product. Thank you Daiwa & Tackle Direct!
