The Saltist was traditionally a more heavy duty name. This year however, they've included this lighter range in the catalogue. Less like the original name, this is really an upgraded BG. So what's not to like?! The BG is phenomenal for circa £100 while the Saltist is a step up again. You really couldn't go wrong. Very smooth, robust, reliable, great line lay, good looking, brilliant! Standard Daiwa sizing on these.
