    alright fellas i think this has been asked before but i want to hear your opinions and why saltist or torium in the same weight class?

    i have toriums and really love them but i think that they are both really awesome reels for the money.

    Torium is a road dog, takes abuse! Never used a saltist, but I am way satisfied with my reel.

    I'm not sure how to describe it, but saltists just don't feel as fluid as toriums. saltists might have better components, but they just don't feel right in my hands. there is a little bit of play and it feels kind of clunky. I noticed the same thing with the saltigas. I personally like the fluid retrieve and power I feel like I get when fishing the toriums and especially trinidads. just my opinion though

    Saltist best reel for the money!!!

    Saltist is built better and doesn't have as much of an anti reverse problem. If you want reliability get a Newell.

    Sadly, I have experience an anti reverse problem on my newell P332. After hooking and fighting large fishes, the spring which pushes the dog into place to catch the gear has been bent. I guess the torium n newell both have an anti reverse issue. I have not tried a saltist yet so i wouldnt know anything about the reel.

    so far after a couple years my saltist has had NO problems not even anti-reverse

    we have a fleet of toriums (6 16s, 6 20s, 4 30s) used as the charter rods. i would never buy another reel for san diego live bait fishing (or jig casting)
