The Daiwa Saltist MQ Spinning Reels utilize some of Daiwa's most advanced design features to provide ultimately dependable power and performance. Built around a heavy duty aluminum frame for maximum durability, the Saltist MQ implements Daiwa's Monocoque Body (MQ) design for even more power in a more compact frame. A feature brought down from Daiwa's flagship level of spinning reels, Monocoque Body refers to the use of a one-piece frame and reel body. A single piece body allows for exceptional strength and rigidity, improved water resistance with the absence of screws, and significant weight reduction. Perhaps best of all, the MQ frame design provides better spatial efficiency and allows for a larger gear to fit inside of the reel, adding power and longevity to the gear set.
