Introducing the Spheros 5000 SW Salt Water Spinning Reel, brought to you by Shimano®! The Spheros SW features many of Shimano's famous technologies to provide you with an exceptional experience out on the water! Heading up the list of technologies are X-Shield and X-Protect, which keep 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. Shimano have developed this reel with HAGANE body and gears, which 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-Ship technology utilises a double bearing supported pinion gear configuration and a larger sized gear, achieving an overall smoother operation. The design also includes SA-RB bearings, which are shielded anti-rust bearings for ultimate protection, and boasts a gear ratio of 4.6:1 and a max drag power of 10kg!
