    Is it worth the extra money for the Saltiga?

    The surfcaster guys love this particular reel. I have heard many good things about them. They have been used to bring down 40 and 50lb stripers. Among other tough running fish. If you have the money I would but its real pricey.

    Wow Equinox, you live in Sweden and you're considering using something besides an Ambassadeur! I hope you don't get forced into exile!:crazy: My fishing buddies and I would love to come to Sweden and buy all those mystical, forbidden models that are only sold to the European and Asian markets. People only whisper about the existance of many types of Abu's that we don't get the chance to purchase here. Sweden would be like living in Abu Garcia Mecca for a lot of us!
    Anyway, as Angel said, the Saltiga is a popular reel with the surf fishermen. I'm guessing that is because it will cast further than the Saltist. Keep checking here for a more educated answer.

    Glad to see your post here on the wire. Keep you hook wet. Doug
