    Marco,

    Welcome to this forum.

    I hope another reader can answer your question.
    Dawia Saltiga reels are new to my collection also.

    Where do you fish?

    i got this info from another member

    Saltiga S-Extreme

    New gears (smoother, stronger)
    New bearings (more corrosion resistant)
    New drag (carbontex style material - no more stickiness on startup)
    Bearing at the bottom of the handle stem replaced with bushing.
