Available in Medium and Big sizes to handle every condition you’re likely to fish, and every fish you’re likely to come across, these reels come fully loaded with all of the stand-out, high performance technology you’d expect from Shimano. A large AR-C spool brings slow oscillation, giving you longer casting distances while preventing backlashes and wind knots, ensuring your cast is always smooth, with a subtle strike that won’t startle the fish, while Aero Wrap II, a worm gear oscillation system that ensures a uniform lay and winding shape, keeps your line looking sleek on every single cast, no matter how inexperienced with the demands of long range casting you may be. For those with significant long-range casting experience, these features draw attention to you and your action for all the right reasons, setting you apart on the bank and in the water. Meanwhile, the XShip system offers two-point support of a smooth, stable, durable gearing system, which runs on an ultra-light handle rotation for strong, subtle peak performance under the strain of even the biggest, liveliest fish.
