Daiwa Saltist Line Counter Reels are specially designed for saltwater and Great Lakes freshwater trolling applications.

Great Reel

by fig816

The high speed retrieve is a huge plus. It really makes a difference when clearing a line, even with an umbrella rig.

I Back Troll the Clearwater River in Idaho for Salmon and Steelhead. This Reel is perfect for putting your Rig in the holding Holes.Set your Drift Boat up and then the Line Counter comes into play The Reel functions very smoothly, and is fast as heck on the retrieve. The Drag is top of the line. This Reel will work in any Trolling situation

Stick with Shimano

by Bob

I purchased 6 STTLW40LCHA at the beginning of 2018 season. 3 of the line counters quit working the same week end in May 2019! I am not a charter so these reels do not get a lot of use. The display also fogs up on rainy days!
