The HAGANE Body is a metal reel body with high
rigidity. The body rigidity and impact resistance virtually eliminates
body flexing. The result transforms the angler's actions directly into
cranking power. It's efficiency through strength.
Total Protection: The concept of COREPROTECT is
simple... to provide water resistance without creating a heavy rotation
feeling. There are three key areas of the reel that require protection;
the roller clutch, the body and the line roller.
Shimano's proprietary surface treatment of the
spool and body allow corrosion resistance more than double the
conventional surface treatment.
Cross Carbon Drag
This drag material provides a wider range of drag settings, along with the smoothest Shimano drag performance ever.
Super Free Spool
Super Free Spool was designed to eliminate friction
on the spool shaft during the cast. In standard baitcasting reels, when
the clutch bar is pressed down, the pinion gear is freed and actually
can drag on the spool shaft creating friction that can limit the length
of a cast. With Super Free Spool the pinion gear is supported by a ball
bearing so that when the clutch is disengaged in preparation for a cast,
the pinion gear and spool shaft are kept in perfect alignment. The
result is zero friction upon the spool shaft.
These bearings have been through the same process
as our A-RB bearings, but feature shields on both sides of the bearings
that reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting the bearing's
S-Compact Body allows for all-day comfort and
improved fishability by making the palming side plate up to 25% smaller
