The Saragosa SW Spinning Reel is a durable, saltwater spinning reel, packed full of features! The team at Shimano have developed this reel with X-Ship, encased in a hybrid aluminium and XT7 graphite body with an XGT7 rotor, delivering remarkable cranking power with minimal effort! X-Ship technology stands for Extra, Smooth & High Power - Utilising a double bearing supported pinion gear configuration as well as increasing the size of the gear, Shimano engineers have achieved an overall smoother operation. The HAGANE body and gears provide long lasting smoothness and durability. The impact resistance of the body virtually eliminates any flexing, whilst the drive gear has been formed by Shimano's cold forging technology to provide ultimate strength. X-Shield and X-Protect keeps salt water out of key areas, with sealing gaskets in 12 critical locations throughout the aluminium body and grease between the second and third lips. The AR-C Spool lip design also produces a wide casting distance while preventing backlashes and wind knots from forming! So when you're heading out for your next saltwater fishing adventure, grab a Saragosa SW Spinning Reel by Shimano - The number one choice amongst anglers!
