The TwinPower has been one of the top in Shimano’s lineup for the past 30 years. To breakthrough, we have to create a reel that is stronger than before. To achieve this, we decided to equip the new twinpower with a metal rotor to maximise rigidity of the reel. Paired with the HAGANE Body, this lineup has unparalleled durability and rigidity made specially for fights with pelagics. When cranking the all new Twinpower, some will sense familiarity as the lineup offers reels with Stella-grade smoothness and reeling experience. In addition, the long stroke spool helps in achieving greater casting distances. A trusty and tough reel suitable for use in multiple fields and situations, the TwinPower has evolved to new heights, marking the start of a new chapter.
REEL FEATURES AND DESCRIPTION:
Unlike hot forging, Shimano’s precision cold forging technology compresses metal at room temperatures and involves no cutting to forge a high-precision gear with micron accuracy, giving you excellent precision and strength.
MICROMODULE GEAR II
The most advanced tooth designed evolved from Shimano’s unique manufacturing technology. In our pursue for the ideal tooth shape, we’ve redesigned the teeth of the gears right down to the tooth’s surface. Gear noise has also been reduced while improving reeling smoothness.
X-Ship system gives you smooth reeling even under heavy loads. Shimano’s unique mechanism for robust gear engagement uses and enlarged drive gears and two-point support of the pinion gears whose ends are supported by bearings.
Made of highly rigid metals such as aluminium and magnesium. Weight has been greatly reduced while reel flexure, warp and distortion has been eliminated, allowing for smooth reeling with little power loss.
6 times more resistant than Core Protect, X-Protect utilizes a labyrinth (maze) structure and water-repellent treatment to prevent water from entering the inner areas of a reel.
To eliminate the slightest gaps, looseness and vibrations between components in the drive section, we’ve re-examined the overall design and related parts one by one. Improvements were made to the drive gear, worm shaft, worm shaft pin and gear, achieving comfort with quietness. Experience smooth rotational performance in a new dimension.
G-Free Body technology has been developed to shift the reel’s centre of gravity closer to the rod. This has been achieved by moving the osciallation mechanism 19mm up from the bottom of the reel to the top. By moving the centre of gravity closer to the angler’s hand position, the G Free Body helps to reduce fatigue and enhances casting comfort.
Through tens of thousands of casting tests and computer simulations, it has been determined that AR-C spool lip design produces longer casting distances than a standard lip spool, while preventing backlashes and wind knots from forming. It also allows the line to flow off the spool in smaller loops during the cast, which means less slap on the strip per guide. This results in longer casts with less friction.
LONG STROKE SPOOL
The long stroke spool design improves casting performance when compared to the previous model due to the improved line flow from the spool.
RIGID SUPPORT DRAG
Rigid support drag eliminates spool movement and wobble, even at light drag settings. The result is an incredibly smooth drag even at extremely light settings.
Shielded Anti-Rust bearings are similar to A-RB, but feature additional shields for the ultimate protection.
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 cut to the bail arm.
