Daiwa Saltiga Dog Fight 8000 Reel
Despite everything, modern, touchy feely, society tries to tell us, sometimes there is just no substitute for size. The Daiwa Dogfight fishing reel is where big is joined in marriage to technological brilliance. The Dogfight allows you to tackle our fiercest, most belligerent fish species, whether you do it from land or aboard your favourite vessel.
The inclusions in the Dogfight are second to none. Daíwa’s best and most famous technology including MagSeal, Twistbuster II, Tough Air Bail and ABS II, make the Daiwa Dogfight a force to be reckoned with in any application. Casting prowess is outstanding. You’ll find the Saltiga Dogfight absolutely perfect on the rocks and for punching well out to the last line of breakers on a windy beach. Boaties will also enjoy casting their lures well away from the fish spooking hull.
There are two model options with the Saltiga Dogfight. The 8000 is built for cranking. Perfect for bottom bouncing and pulling monsters up from the deep. The 8000H is your ideal weapon from casting big slices, minnows and poopers at super-fast pelagic species such as tuna or GT Giant Trevally.
Whatever your application, you have the newest of Daiwa drag technology in the ATD, or Automatic Tournament Drag. This technology gives you the smoothest possible drag from the moment of strike. The drag starts very smoothly, and in just seconds, defers to the pre-set drag strength, all but eliminating bust ups from the moment of strike. It is technology like ATD that puts the Saltiga Dogfight fishing reel at the pinnacle of large spin reel performance. There really is nothing to compare. When you want big, when you want refined performance, you need to get the Saltiga Dogfight, there is no equal.
