Does anyone know if the cork puppy will work with a Saltiga 40 reel? I just finished building a Calstar BTG 6480 rod and want to use my Saltiga 40 on that rod but I'm concerned about the narrow clamp that comes with the Saltiga. I don't want to put to much pressure on such a narrow section of the blank. If the cork puppy does not work are there any other wider rod clamps that would fit the Saltiga reel? Thanks for you help.

On an old Saltiga 40, should work. On the new one's negative. Gosh I wish you were close enough to come in with your reel and rod to properly size her up. There was a change in the CP, added some "wings" and that's where there may be a conflict with the gear case on your reel.


Great Stuff!

I have one of the first run Saltiga 40 star drag reels. I bought it from Charkbait when they first came out. For the newer Saltiga 40 reels are you referring to the lever drag reel?

Yep. I think you are going to be fine with the CP. Probably the large 28mm size is what's needed.
