The 2019 (2020 in the UK) new model Spheros SW 4000 size has been developed specifically for inshore Slatwater spinning, Shore Jigging and Surf Casting. A compact reel with the power and toughness of bigger models, extremely strong and reliable, but with a very affordable price!
Shimano Carbon Cross Washer - reliable washer, same as the mounted on large Shimano spinning reels.
The HAGANE DRIVE Gear is produced with Shimano’s coldforging technology, without the need for additional machining. This delivers a longlasting smoothness, strength, lightness and power at the very heart of the reel. Traditional diecast, machined gears, found in other reels, are less durable under heavy loads.
X-SHIP is a combination of features that work together to create much greater efficiency. By positioning the pinion gear close to the centre line of the large diameter drive gear, more power is transferred from the handle to the rotor. The pinion gear is also supported by two Shimano ARB roller bearings. This creates more smoothness & stability.
The HAGANE BODY is produced from high-rigidity aluminium. This creates stiffness and impact resistance, while at the same time eliminating flexing of the body. The result is a rocksolid housing and support for the moving internal gearing and greater efficiency throughout the reel.
COREPROTECT prevents water entering the body, from under the rotor at the front of the body, also into the Roller Bearing unit.
G FREE BODY - 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 worm shaft oscillation mechanism 19mm from the bottom of the reel to the top. By moving the centre of gravity closer to the anglers hand position, the G Free Body helps to reduce fatigue and enhance casting comfort.
ARC SPOOL - Shimano ARC Spool is a patented spool design with an angled spool lip. This design enables the line to leave the spool with less friction and in smaller coils resulting in longer more accurate casts. ARC spools are proven to reduce backlash and wind knots when using braid.
S A-RB - A-RB is the industry's first “surface modification” to form a “passive layer”, a bearing that keeps rust away. In addition, SA-RB is a product that seals the sides with a rust-proof material and significantly reduces salt debris caused by salt crystallisation inside the bearing.
