The Saltiga heralded a giant leap forward in design revolving around magnetic fluid. Developed by NASA to magnetically deliver fuel to space ships this revolutionary innovation was introduced to the fishing industry in the 2010 Saltiga. Mixing a liquid with iron isn't easy but Daiwa has mastered it in the Saltiga range. When dispersed evenly through liquid the iron oxide (magnetite) has a diameter of 1/100 000mm so small that the surface area of the ferromagnetic particle is around 1/10th of a single influenza virus. This metallic grease/oil takes on a new effect placed by itself it forms a typical liquid helical shape with the introduction of a magnetic force it changes shape similar to the android in Terminator II attaching itself to any other metal to form a seal. So strong is this magnetic liquid that if placed in a container with a magnetic surface it would retain its shape even if the bottom were removed. Being magnetized this lubrication system avoids any friction and prevents dust intrusion eliminating oil spray and significantly improving reel life expectancy. Innovative design was originally used in the rotor/anti-reverse system combined new CRBB bearings with a magnetic oil membrane it made water intrusion a thing of the past. Not content just with magsealing the rotor/anti-reverse system the new series introduces an all-new revolution in ultra smooth rotation and water sealing. Magsealed bearings are placed in key points in the reel to increase rotation smoothness and increase part longevity. The new bearings are Magsealed unlike the Magseal used in the rotor system the new bearings are a fully contained Magsealed bearing. These bearings are placed in the line roller system and the gear system.
