The Shimano Ultegra XSC is a saltwater spinning reel that is part of Shimano's long cast surf system designed to get anglers the most distance and accuracy when surf fishing. Surf fishermen are always seeking out new gear to increase casting distance to help them reach past the white wash and out to the first break lines. When designing the Ultegra XSC Spinning Reels, Shimano consulted with many east coast striper fishermen to aid them in their engineering. They found commonly desired traits from anglers responses and went to work to improve smoothness and power while increasing casting distance and ease. The new Ultegra XSC does just that - a supremely smooth reel that, when paired with the right equipment, will offer anglers extremely long casting distance. X-Ship gearing is the main technological upgrade in these surf fishing reels - the technology focuses the power of the anglers reeling more precisely due to upgrades in the way the gear teeth mesh. The Ultegra XSC Surf Spinning Reels are very rigid and strong, yet they display light weight due to the aluminum construction.
We offer the Shimano Ultegra XSC Surf Spinning Reels in two sizes: 5500 & 10000. Please see chart below for reel specs.
The X-SHIP gear system achieves greater power transmission efficiency by minimizing the rotational resistance through a larger gear, optimum positioning and improved tooth face accuracy and bearing capacity. The rigidity of components such as the handle, rotor and bail are enhanced to eliminate power loss resulting from flexing and distortion. The synergy generated by X-SHIP and rigidity of components allows more direct cranking without loss of power at the handle, providing great advantages for extreme saltwater fishing.
Aero Wrap II: is a worm gear oscillation system with specially designed pitch to create optimal oscillation speeds. This provides great uniform line lay to reduce loss of eneergy during the cast.
