The Shimano Spheros SW Spinning Reel was designed with the angler in mind by having an even more durable model to handle the salt. Available for use off the beach, inshore, and blue water applications, this SW reel gives you the confidence to catch the fish you want. The "SW Concept" features X-Ship which provides improved gear strength and maintains precise alignment with each cast and retrieval.
S A-RB technology shields both sides of the bearings to reduce salt and sand inhabitants. The X-Shield and X-Protect combine to grant extreme water resistance in the harshest conditions. The reel's CF Gear is also another form of protection against abrasion and damage. Cross Carbon Drag gives the angler a wide range of drag settings. Spheros CF Aluminum Cold Forge spool adds even more strength to diecast aluminum or graphite spools.
