Built specifically as a long casting surf and rock fishing reel, this reel was intentionally beefed up in all aspects to make it rugged, reliable and a pleasure to fish with. Packed with features such as S-ARB and anti-line foil guard, you know that you can trust this reel to deliver the performance that you need.
PRODUCT FEATURES :
Unlike hot forging, Shimano’s precision cold forging technology compresses metal at room temperature and involves no cutting to forge a high-precision gear with micron accuracy, giving you excellent precision ans strength.
X-Ship system gives you smooth reeling even under heavy loads. Shimano’s unique mechanism for robust gear engagement uses and enlarged drive gear, optimum positioning of the pinion and drive gears and two-point support of the pinion gears whose ends are supported by bearings.
Made of highly rigid metals such as aluminium and magnesium. Weight has been greatly reduced while reel flexure, warp and distortion has been eliminated, allowing for smooth reeling with little power loss.
Smooth line release is a result of making the centre line of the spool parallel to the rod, keeping positional relation between rod and reel unchanged.
Through tens of thousands of casting tests and computer simulations, it has been determined that AR-C spool lip design produces longer casting distances than a standard lip spool, while preventing backlashes and wind knot from forming. It also allows the line to flow off the spool in smaller loops in smaller loops during the cast, which means less slap on the strip per guide. This results in longer casts with less friction.
We have upgraded our light-weight carbon material CI4. Keeping it light weight, rigidity and durability of the material under fishing conditions are highly improved. From this characteristics, we were able to reduce the volume and weight of the rotor and the body.
Shielded Anti-Rust bearings are similar to A-RB, but feature additional shields for the ultimate protection.
ONE PIECE BAIL
One piece bail allows the line to travel unimpeded to the line roller. Its seamless design reduces friction and the chance of tangles or cut to the bail arm.
