Well worth every penny
Perfect example of you get what you pay for. Reel performs exceptionally well, super smooth and tough. Takes a beating and still works like new time in and time out. If you're ever interested in a reel in this class, the saltiga is worth taking a look at.
ProsSuper smooth Strong drag
ConsPrice but you get what you pay for

Pure joy.
I've been looking at the Saltiga series for many years. Once the redesign in 2015, it was time to get one and I was not disappointed. I have fished extensively with my buddy's 2 new Stellas. They are great reels on their own accord, but for my money I chose Daiwa. I enjoy jigging and plugging offshore, especially landing big fish on light tackle with artificials. These reels well paired with a high-end rod not only are very capable, they are a dream to fish with.
ProsDurability Appearance Drag capacity and smoothness Line capacity Customer service. Had an accident with a hatch door and Daiwa USA handled it. Reel handle able to switch sides easily Overall design and functionality

I got the 5000H for various types of fishing from lures to bottom fishing. It's been super smooth and strong. Not to heavy and spins like a champ.

Diawa saltiga is a best buy
Honestly I own a Diawa Isla 5000h and now the saltiga 5000h and both reels have out matched my expectations by far these reels are my go-to for "killing fish" the smoothness and shear power of these reels are unmatched and in my opinion out do Shimano Stella's of the same size

Great for Tarpon, Snook and Tuna
This is my second Saltiga reel. I use both of them to fish Tarpon and other large fighting fish in Costa Rica and Belize. Excellent quality and line capacity for fish that like to run. Smooth drag also.
ProsLine capacity and nice balance. Knob handle is also very nice.
ConsWith some of my rods, this reel will not seat firmly. Not sure if it's the rod or the reel causing the issue. I just wrap the reel fins with a little electrical tape and then seat it into the rod. Works great and I'm good to go.

Amazing reel
All of the Saltiga 15 reels are great. You can't beat this reel for the money and I have a lot of Stella's and stop using them and switched to Saltigas. I landed a 200lb tuna with this reel and a black hole rod aurface casting.

Review one year after purchase
I bought the new 2015 version of the Saltiga 4000 for light inshore applications (stripers, blues, false albacore)...Still feels new, drag is impeccable..Biggest tests came in the fall last year with the fall run, starting with very strong albie run, and segueing to a decent fall striper run, with a handful of good sized the manual bail (also own a bailless VS150) especially for the small tunas...otherwise manual bail vs bailless is kind of '6 of one/half dozen of the other'...Its not cheap, but would recommend it for anyone looking for a high quality of reel where the feeling of a finely tuned machine is part of the experience. I deducted a star because the reel cover is sized inappropriately (reel only fits with the handle removed)...otherwise, just based on performance alone, it's a 5 star performer
ProsDrag, feel, overall quality
Consnot cheap (although cheaper than the 2010 version), cover sucks

Excellent reel
I combined this reel with a Shimano Slick butt Terez rod and used it last week for dolphin / medium bottom fishing out of Hatteras and was perfect!!! This is my second Daiwa Saltiga - it is comparable with stella of similar size. Love them!
ProsYou get what you pay for - An outstanding reel!

Hi yes I have two questions about the dogfight 8000. Question 1. Is what are The internal drive gears made of are they stainless or brass or something else? Question 2. Is how many yards of 100 pound PowerPro Maxcuatro braid can you put on the reel ?
1 Answers
Hello Billy, The internal gears are aluminium/bronze alloy (usually coupled with a stainless steel pinion) as far as how much line would fit on the reel that would depend on what model.

Is the reel fully sealed? Vince
1 Answers
The Saltiga spinning reels have three "magsealed" bearings using Daiwa's magnetic oil system. The drive gear is also sealed on both sides using this system. The rotor bearing and line roller are both sealed as well. This reel is not designed to be fully submerged while fishing with it, however it can certainly handle an accidental dunk or significant spray while sitting on the gunnel without affecting performance.

What's the different between saltiga8000f and saltiga8000hdf?
1 Answers
The Saltiga 8000HDF is the higher speed version. It has a higher gear ratio, meaning it will take in more line per crank than the Saltiga 8000f.
