FWIW I bought three of the Daiwa Saltist last year, 20 and 30 star drag and 40LD2. I love them. I was fishing all Fathom LD2's but the Saltist 20 and 30 make great LB/ sardine reels and the 40LD2 is now my go to yo-yo reel for YT.

Thanks, man. I basically have the whole line up of Saltist star drags and I love them. I just don’t need the Saltist 30 right now and I was hoping it would go to someone who would actually use it.

What I like is the buttery smooth retrieve, it's a joy. I use both a Cal'd out FTH25NLD2 and a Saltist 40LD2 for yo-yo/ 130g FF and the Saltist is my preference. I do believe the 25N is a better reel overall and if a larger grade fish picked me up I'd want it but the Saltist is just so much more of a joy to fish. :D
