Shimano Twin Power SW reels for the salt

THE Twin Power Saltwater series make use of three key engineering developments from Shimano. The all-metal Hagane Body offers high rigidity and impact resistance and has all but eliminated body flexing. This means the angler gets more cranking power under load. This is backed up by the increased efficiency of the cold-forged Hagane Gears for increased resilience and durability, with reduced wearing during the life of the reel. Of course there’s X-Ship, where the pinion gear is supported on both ends by SA-RB bearings for smoother operation whilst under the load of a big fish.

An additional ten SA-RB bearings and a roller bearing mean that the winding experience is one of exquisitely smooth luxury, no matter how big the fish or how high the drag setting, according to Shimano.

These versatile saltwater class threadlines are great for snapper, kingfish and tuna, whether you float Squidgies down a berley trail, hurl stickbaits at surface-feeders, or jig in deep water. They have the gear ratios to go the distance, and the line capacities for that unexpected monster, especially when spooled with fine diameter Power Pro braid. The use of braid is backed up by incredible drag power — a massive 11 kilos in the 4000SWBXG, through to 25 kilos on the 14000SWBXG.
