Daiwa 15 Saltiga Dogfight Overhead
Daiwa Saltiga LD60H Dogfight Overhead Reel
For the past decade the Dogfight spinning reels have battled the largest fish in the ocean, now in 2016 Daiwa introduces the overhead model – Saltiga LD60H Dogfight.
With the fine diameter and strength of today’s super braids lets you pack on a tremendous amount of line and fighting power into a compact reel and even tackle enormous fish like marlin and southern Bluefin tuna. Few reels are built for this type of punishment, but the new Dogfight can.
Overheads can be difficult to fish with efficiently but with Saltiga Dogfights low profile and narrow design it makes it a lot easier. Traditionally jigging with threadlines is easier because of the balance point below the rod. The new designed compact and low profile Dogfight utilizes a smaller side plate for ease of handling and a huge drop down gear box keeping the axis point lower for improved balance, virtually eliminating side overbalance.
Daiwa’s advanced gear design, Digigear, delivers it’s tell tale precision, to create a reel that has few peers when it comes to smoothness. Hugely powerful on the crank and smooth under load the Dogfight is Saltiga pedigree.
For ultimate drag, the Dogfight uses Daiwa’s powerful, unyielding ATD drag system giving you the power and poise to battle the largest fish in the ocean. The ATD drag is the Saltiga is an all-new design, made specifically for billfish in mind. Its long progressive drag curve is ideal for light tackle fishing where ultra smooth fine adjustment drag is required.
A new large clicking alloy star drag puts this control in easy reach, with its super light, ergonomic design making it easier than ever to crank the power up when needed.
