PostSubject: Stevo's Daiwa saltist braid special 12 - 20lb boat rod review   Mon May 22, 2017 11:11 pm

I bought this rod at the end of last year and
i've give it a good go now so I think it's time
for a review on it. thumbs up

On getting this rod straight away you notice
it's striking blue colour and how thin and light it is.



I have the 12 - 20lb class 7ft 8" 2 piece and it's a cracking rod
with a lovely through action, great bite detection and the
power in the butt section to help with those bigger fish.



I've used this rod on the Mersey, general and wreck fishing and
it's been great with all the different methods of boat fishing
the only down side's for me is i'd like it a little bit longer (8ft+)
and the rod bag isn't the best with what this rod cost you'd
expect a lot better quality rod bag and it just doesn't have one  Sad

Rod info

*Premium carbon blanks using high grade carbon
*Super light response blank
*Sensitive tip action for improved bite detection
*Fuji LDBAG & LCAG Alconite Braid Guides
*Equal length section assembly
*Powerlift duplonforegrip
*Lightweight fuji gimbal



Price wise these are £140/£160 so not cheap
but you get what you pay for a nice thin well
made light boat rod with some power.  Rock on

All round I give it 8/10 thumbs up

They are great rods but for me I wish they'd made an 8ft one Rolling Eyes

What do you think of the kenzakis tatch?

I thought they looked a bit stiff not enough action in them
but I could be wrong scratch
