That's what I read yesterday. I'll have to pull the article back up but I also think they are doing away with the product names 'Tiagra', 'Trinidad', and 'Calcutta'. Those lines will all carry a form of the 'Saltiga' name. Except the old Tiagra which will carry the name of Diawa's big lever drag...don't remember the name of that one. They are developing some interesting things into the 'Tiagra' line like twin & quad drags & 6.2:1 gears on the high side. They also said that their 80 & 130 lever drags will have low speed gears somewhere in the .5-.55:1 range. Talk about cranking power!
The main colors of entire product line will be sliver like the Saltiga. Diawa will also be dropping the current Saltiga line although they are incorporating a few of that reels features into the 'Trinidad' frame and rolling the Saltiga name over to that reel.
It also said that after the Diawa/Shiamano transition was over they had their eye on another company. In not so many words they named Quantum as their next acquisition. Keep an ear to the news wire...this could be interesting.
