The Saltist Surf is a classic Daiwa Surf rod which follows their tied and tested formula of matching a lovely sensitive tip into a fast butt progressive blank which stiffens towards the butt. This gives a classic long casting action and also gives a rod which is a joy to fish with. The blank is built using the latest HVF and X45 technology which helps convert casting effort into distance achieved. The rod is rated from 100 - 200gms but gives its optimum performance with the most popular 150 and 170gm sinkers plus bait.
The rod is finished with Fuji guides, Fuji sliding reel seat, Japanese shrink handle and a comfortable rubber button.
The rod is primarily designed for multiplier use but it can also be paired with a fixed spool if you wish.
The 1422M - AU is a classic UK style multiplier shore rod which is suitable for general all-round beach fishing on a wide range of venues. It has a good casting action which gets your bait out to the fish and it is capable of dealing with larger species such as rays, hounds and cod whilst maintaining the sensitive needed to show the bites when targeting flatties, whiting and the like. The longer length makes the 1422M ideal for fishing with a low mounted reel.
