- 5 ball bearings + 1 roller bearing
- Shimano Variable Brake System (VBS)
The Shimano Variable Brake System (VBS) uses weights located on the palming side of the reel. The casting characteristics of the reel are easily modified by switching all or combinations of the six brake weights “on” or “off”.
To access the brake weights on your reel see the instructions under “spool access” in this manual.
To turn a weight “on” simply push it out (toward the outer spool edge) past the inner retaining clips. To turn a weight “off” push the weight inward past the clips. Weights can be removed by pushing them out past the last retaining cap.
- X SHIP gearing system
X-Ship improved gear durability. By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with bearings, the pinion gear maintains precise alignment with the drive gear. This means the gears will stay in the same position under the heaviest loads. The added benefit is that friction between the spool shaft and gear are eliminated. This will enhance the casting performance of the reel with lighter lures, and allow for longer casts.
- HAGANE body construction
Rigid metal body assures a trouble free fight with fish. The tough metal housing protects the interior of the reel from the most severe external environments.
- Shimano Super Free System
- Super Stopper anti-reverse
Super Stopper anti-reverse uses a one-way stainless steel roller bearing to eliminate backplay. It helps you drive the hook home. The quicker you can take up line, the less likely a fish will be able to expel your hook.
- QuickFire II clutch bar casting system
The QuickFire II thumb bar gives you the ability to control both the spool and the clutch with your thumb alone. The natural hand position puts your thumb right on the QuickFire II clutch bar. Press the bar to disengage the spool for unparalleled casting, then turn the crank to reengage gearing.
- Precision aluminum S3D Spool
The Shimano Stable Spool Design (S3D) technology features a balanced and uniform thin wall aluminum construction throughout the spool. This precision design significantly reduces spool vibration and creates an incredibly smooth feeling when casting and retrieving the lure.
