I have a saltist 35 single speed love it. Looking at a 35 saltist 2speed to buy. Any comments about the reel from somebody who has one or used one. Not sure I like the handle. Thanks Richard

They're decent reels that I would compare to avets. They're smooth, light, and has lots of drag. Only thing I dont like is switching from low speed back to high. Sometimes you need go counter-clockwise to get back into high speed. No biggie. I have 3 (20, 30, 40) and use them locally all the time. I wouldnt hesitate to use them offshore.
