Morning Gentlemen,

Looking for opinions regarding what you guys consider to be the best CASTING multiplier reel on the market for rock and surf application, irrespective of price. I’m talking reels in the size range of the Daiwa Grandwave 40 or 50 reels.
Will use it to cast +- 4-7 ounce weights for edibles.

Your opinions will be appreciated.

Whatever you do, I'd also suggest a static mag. Take your time to set it correctly and watch your casting distance grow!

What do you want to catch? If you want to spend lots of money then just go and get a Trinidad or a Saltiga, simple as that

Saltiga 40 (new Generation). We have magged afew of the 40 and 50 of late and it is a work of art mechanically. Nothing compares.
The 50 would be overkill for any eds except maybe GT and Yellofin tuna from the side.

PENN Trq 30

Because most of the multiplier reels we use in the surf were designed as boat reels, not as surf casting reels.

Hi enigma,

Do you perhaps have a price on the new generation saltiest by any chance?

Limited LOCAL appeal for the narrow spool? Kinda like a Fathom 25?Why bring in a reel that few guys will buy?

Also, insamuch as Daiwa's USA site and the Australian site don't seem to agree on retrieve rates in cm for new Saltist multipliers, why would the 35H retrieve line faster than a 40 or 50 given they share the same spool diameter and have identical ratios of 6.4:1?

post is about casting reels not reels large enough to tackle toothies. I started out with 50 size reels. switched over to free spool reels and then narrow spools. My 1 cent worth narrow free spool reels perfectly suited for edibles. Settled on Tn16A which is not easily available and I had to scramble to get hold of my 2 babies. I'm not brand concerned and would love to cast a 35H Saltist.Tn16A is a smooth casting machine with crank retrieve equal to 40 if not more simply due to compactness of spool design.

As long as you can cast with a multiplier any reel do for me !!
Adrenalin X master surprised me with the casting range !!
Penn Defiance and even the Ocuma Convector 50 have smooth casting operation
( Not the lever wind series) I love to cast with the Diawa SG50H very smooth as well
