Decided to try Daiwa for Surf fishing. Have used Daiwa reels for years for freshwater trout ,especially steelhead and the drags are superb. Found the same to be true with thus Saltist. Excellent build quality, and super smooth.
ProsEverything
ConsWouldnt mind it being lighter but with a 10ft or large rod feels just right!

Between the Eliminator, BG, and Saltist. I had put the BG over the Saltist until I caught my first King MAC. Definitely smoother. The reeling is faster. Definitely worth listening to the drag. I’m in love with this reel..I have 7 bg’s, 3 eliminator, and 1 Saltist and I need
ProsThe drag is amazing
Cons$$$ very pricey.

I have a 5000 and my dad has an older model 6500. The 6500 lived through a car wreck and still works great.

Very nice reel!

One of my "run and gun" reels for offshore fishing. My two others are 6000. Really nice reel with a solid drag system. Great line capacity too (braid). Use this reel mainly as one of my run and gun reels for offshore fishing. This being my largest spinning reel for that purpose. Good solid drag as well as great line capacity too. I've fished with this reel for about three years now on a regular basis with a maintenance schedule and never ever had any negative issues with it. And a really great price for what you're getting especially compared to the price of other reels in the same category. Highly recommended!
ProsGreat price, great line capacity and a solid drag system.
ConsI usually can think of something negative to say but honestly can't with this reel. Buy it!

Absolute banger

I ordered 2 of the saltist 8000's and I love them. They are super smooth and an absolute banger of a reel. They hold a massive amount of line and the drag is flawless. They get the job done!!

To make a better version of one of the best budget reels on the market the Saltist will be by your side for a long time wether you’re plugging or jigging this thing is built like a bg but with better components. If you already own the BG you know what I mean

Awesome reel for the money

I only use this reel at the canal, its extremely smooth and reassured you that its sturdy with every rotation of the handle. That ratio is also perfect for using lures. Definately would get another one.

I bought this for the fast retrieve when I go down to Cabo. Seeing that I live in NY there was no way I was going to spend the money on a Stella or Saltiga if it is going to only be used maybe a week out of the year.
