Daiwa Saltist Levelwind STTLW20LCHA Reviews:
Line counter works great
Excellent choice for my clients
As a professional guide I found this reel to be exceptional for the clients. Fishing for King salmon the exceptional drag and high speed retrieve make this an excellent choice for my clients.
It works well
Great for my kind of Fishing.
Excellent trolling reel
I have used this trolling reel model many years without any problems. I bought more reels so that I can have some reels with fiber line. Impossible to buy this reel from Europe.
Well built... reasonable drag... just nice for inshore fishing
A small spool with about 200 meters of suffix 832 40# braided… hooked a few 3 kilo class Queen fish… some 5 kilo class Spanish mackerels off South China Sea coast in Sedili, Malaysia. Reasonably smooth inertia on runs.
I thought the line counter reset button can be made waterproof with a soft rubberized seal. You get a bit of spray here and there when you spool in quick or at the end of the day when you wipe off salt spray with a damp clothe water tends to seep in… and when you take it out the next morning you can’t read the meter because mist forms on the inside so there’s no way to wipe it off. Not so bad when things start heating up and here in the tropics we get 60 to 95% relative humidity so it’s not so easy… you wait until 10-11 in the morning and half a fishing day is gone.
I am absolutely in love with these reels
They are built like Sherman tanks and cast reasonably well for what they are. I use it mostly for vertical jigging, however, and it’s perfect for that. In conjunction with a fish finder, you can specifically target an area of the water column with the line counter. Invaluable for not getting your expensive lures snagged on structure.
What I’m not in love with is the line counter itself. The convex nature of the window does lead to some glare, and I’d ideally like the numbers to be a wee bit bigger and simply white on black,and not green on black. But the rest of the reel is so awesome that I won’t knock off any stars for that.
I own a couple more of these things in different sizes and non line counter configurations, and I think it’s hard to beat them for the money – I really do. If I could only take out one reel on my kayak, this Daiwa Saltist might just be it.
