Inshore slammin' - love this reel.
Black Betty BAM A LAM! I had a couple of older saltists and picked this up earlier this Summer. Snooks, Reds, Specks - this feels great in your hand, casts a mile and reels them in smoother than hot butter.
ProsStill has a bit of weight to it - could be pro or con - depending on what you like.
ConsI wish they would have kept some of the blue appearance for the Saltist line. I like my blues in my rods (custom Key Largo rods) and reels.

Pike/Walleye fishing for livebait presentations on a St. Croix 7'6" MLF... would this reel be a decent fit? I I also looked at the Daiwa Fuego/Tatula/Ballistic LT's and I'm having trouble deciding. I want a tank of a reel and the aluminum housing on this has me kind of favoring it as well as the shallow spool (smaller than any of the other LT's I listed). But No place in town has anything but the Ballistic LT to hold. Any input would be most appreciated.
1 Answers
The Saltist Back Bay would be the most durable of those 3 reels, but it is also significantly heavier than both the Ballistic and Tatula. The Saltist and Ballistic feature Daiwa's magseal technology which make them highly water and corrosion resistant, so both of those reels will have a significant edge in terms of durability over the Tatula. Being that your application is in freshwater I'd say the Ballistic LT is the best reel for the job, but if it is truly a "tank" that you are looking for, go with the Saltist.

The Daiwa STTBB3000LT Saltist Back Bay Spinning Reel isn't ideal for surf casting because of the reel size and line capacity. This reel can hold 170 yds of 30 lb braid.

It took awhile to catch on up north, but southern anglers in the Chesapeake Bay area were onto the striped bass technique of Mojo balling, (a derivative of Parachute jigging), years before the madness trickled up into the New Jersey and New York... Read More
