Bringing select ‘SW Concept’ technology offered in sizes for nearly any sport fish found in the ocean, is the newly designed Shimano Saragosa SW spinning reels.

Showcased for the first time at ICAST in Las Vegas, the range includes six models – SRG-5000SW, 6000SW, 8000SW, 10000SW, 20000SW and 25000SW.

With the ‘SW Concept’ anglers are offered the latest in Shimano spinning reel technology and each model has the retrieving power, toughness and strength needed for any saltwater fishing situation.

It boasts X-Ship – a feature that provides increased cranking power with efficiency so anglers can put maximum pressure on the fish. Next is Shimano’s X-Tough drag with cross carbon and heatproof drag washes for smooth and reliable performance.

X-Shield and X-Protect seals the reels from saltwater intrusion, providing both durability and corrosion-resistance.

“Knowing how both saltwater fish and the environment can abuse tackle, we made the Saragosa’s frame with a combination of power aluminium and graphite for added rigidity,” said Robby Gant, of Shimano’s product development team. “You will also find cold-forged anodised drive gears that can help you land big tuna.”

Helping with drag performance, each Saragosa SW reel also features Shimano’s ‘Cam’ oscillation system. “Not only adding to durability, it also lays the line on the spool in a perfect pattern,” added Gant. “Also, on the big water 20000SW and 25000SW size reels, we include our Rigid Support Drag.”
