Shimano’s flagship spinning reel with a significantly reduced gear noise – thanks to unique „Micro Module Gears“ technology – and the smoothest winding touch. It’s outstanding sensivity responds to even the smallest bite. The light-weight body is made from a highly-rigid magnesium alloy. A special surface treatment with reflecting paint presents the reel with a high-quality image, culminating with it’s design adapted from nature. The mechanical design has been optimized and the barycentric position moved closer to hand in order to reduce the sensory weight. Thus it’s feathery shape brings a sense of unity with the angler.
