Aero Wrap II - This two-speed oscillation system layers the line onto the spool in a crisscross pattern that reduces line-to-line friction for longer casts. Aero Wrap reels utilize worm gear design to move the spool upward quickly and downward slowly to wind the line in a precise pattern, reducing friction and delivering smoother, longer casting ability.
HAGANE Gear - With amazing strength and durability, the HAGANE Gear is at the very heart of the reel. Shimano, through the application of state-of-the-art technologies, gives you the long-lasting smoothness and pleasure that you feel when you first use a reel, over and over again. No cutting work is applied to the teeth of the drive gear. Instead, the entire surface is calculated in minute detail by special 3D design and then formed by Shimano’s cold forging technology. The result is ensured resilience. It’s the fruit of Shimano’s inexhaustible pursuit for durability.
X-Protect - By combining Shimano’s water repellent coating with expertly designed, water channelling labyrinth construction, X-Protect provides high-level water resistance without sacrificing light gear and rotor rotation.
One-Piece Bail - One-Piece Bail allows the line to travel unimpeded to the line roller. Its seamless design reduces friction and the chance of tangles or cuts to the bail arm.
