I have a few of them. Best reels on the market, in my opinion.

I, too, swim with the reels. SKISHING, as we call it.

Have used quite a few over the years Mully.Had one of the first prototypes in the country that Jack Erskine gave me to take up to PNG.It was the largest model and still have it ,display only now.Well made,strong,not flashy and expensive.They come in RHW now I believe which is good for my job however all the early ones are LHW only, which unfortunately does not suit fishing guides.
Have a couple of large Accurates at present but still find in the upper quality end as well as usability the Saltiga's are hard to beat.I used Penns(which are superb value for money)for many years with my GT fishing then went to Stella's but now have settled for Saltiga 6500 Expedition.
