    Easy, sort of the same as dorkus - shoot them in the face. I just don't get in the water.....

    Spear guns work from the boat to.

    One day we launched and next thing all hell broke loose. A bunch of Orca came in and started smashing the rays. Quite the sight.

    Saltiga 5000 with a decent rod of 8' or more would be a good combo. The Saltist reels are sweet too just not all have the mag seals.

    Saltega is the boss!

    Yep, all the reviews I read said the magseal on the saltist is a marketing gimmick and does not actually seal like on the saltega.

    They advised to get the BG instead of the saltist, they reckoned with the saltist you are paying for a feature that still requires the same care not to get water in as one without it, so why pay for it when the rest of the reel is the same?

    Any gurus on here want to weigh in?

    Iíve got two Saltists and while they are good reels I wonít be getting another, you really do need to look after them and the corrosion is second to none.

    Yip Saltiga is definitely in a higher realm (even the old ones), this one spent many days at the bottom of the sea, replaced all bearings etc and bail arm. As you can see plenty of bark has been rubbed off but not corrosion whatsoever.
