Saltiga introduced unrivalled ground breaking technology to the world,  Digigear II, Magseal and Zaion Air Rotor setting the standard in high performance design and innovation. In 2015, Daiwa now take it even further with the introduction of Magsealed bearings and ATD into the new Saltiga range.

The Saltiga heralded a giant leap forward in design, revolving around magnetic fluid. Developed by NASA to magnetically deliver fuel to space ships, this revolutionary innovation was introduced to the fishing industry in the 2010 Saltiga. Mixing a liquid with iron isn’t easy, but Daiwa has mastered it in the Saltiga range. When dispersed evenly through liquid, the iron oxide (magnetite) has a diameter of 1/100,000mm, so small that the surface area of the ferromagnetic particle is around 1/10th of a single influenza virus.

This new metallic grease/oil takes on a new effect, placed by itself it forms a typical liquid helical shape with the introduction of a magnetic force it changes shape similar to the android in Terminator II, attaching itself to any other metal to form a seal. So strong is this magnetic liquid that if placed in a container with a magnetic surface it would retain its shape even if the bottom were removed. Being magnetized this lubrication system avoids any friction and reduces dust intrusion, eliminating oil spray and significantly improving reel life expectancy.

The challenge for Daiwa was to utilize the inherent benefits of magnetic liquid in reel design. Instead of it being used to dustproof, Daiwa needed something that was waterproof. Innovative design was originally used in the rotor/anti-reverse system, combined new CRBB bearings with a magnetic oil membrane, it made water intrusion a thing of the past.
