THIS REEL, made me a Daiwa Fan!
Wanted a "step-up" from the super durable Shimano TR-100G, that I use for all my charter reels. I wanted a power handle, a star drag with a clicking adjustment, a super tough levelwind, all aluminum. That I can cast jigs with, rip a giant top water plug with, and be a "personal reel".
ProsThe bench mark for me as I said above was the Shimano TR-100G work horse conventional level-wind, star drag reel in which I have 16 of, and use daily for charter fishing with customers. But wondered if there was a step up out there in reel land, that wasn't terribly expensive, and would suit my days of personal fishing. YES THERE IS! And the saltist H-C is durable as any with so many features that I was in the need for. And now, I'm a DAIWA guy! These HC reels have made a Fan outa me! Clicking adjustment star drag AUTO-ENGAGING.....with a 1/2 turn of the massive reel handle!!!!!!!! Bullet-proof, almost over sized level wind mechanism Loads of bearings for super smooth operation AND...........6.1-1 GEAR RATIO! Yes a heavy duty saltwater contender, that feels like a MANS reel in your hands. Please cut & paste this Url to Youtube to watch my full review comparing the Saltist H-C to my other reels: http://youtu.be/A1hjY8ZmzbA
ConsNOT A ONE I CAN FIND, SO FAR. After months of heavy saltwater fishing.

saltist h-c levelwind casting reel
I own the salltist BG and it is the one best reel out there for casting and surf fishing. Since then i decided to go with the neww saltist levelwind as an inshore reel. I was very impressed once I recieved it. Very solid reel,able to palm ,and cast effortlessly. I paired it with the Daiwa inshore saltiga striper rod. very pleased.......
Prosvery solid; nice power handle

very impressed with this reel. A smooth and predictable casting reel this new Daiwa has won me over completely. I fish the cape cod canal and have added to my casting distance significantly with this reel. I would recommend this reel to anyone.
