The Shimano Spheros SW SP10000SW Spinning Reel is an all around great entry into the saltwater spinning reel field, and anglers everywhere love its chameleon like ability to transition from a brawny surf monster in the morning to a pelagic taming gladiator in the afternoon! Seriously, this reel can put away beastmode fish in any water, green or blue, thanks to the new Cross Carbon Drag system that puts out 27# of the smoothest drag a Shimano has ever seen. The SP10000SW comes equipped with 4 shielded A-RB ball bearings that increase the fluidity of the reel, and the patented X-Ship system which places a bearing at either end of the pinion gear ensuring solid gear placement especially when under extreme pressure. A decently quick 4.9:1 gear ratio whips your line back onto the CF cold forged aluminum spool at a clip of 40 inches per crank. This makes this reel ideal for high speed vertical jigging applications, as well as ripping poppers across the surface, inducing some heart stopping topwater explosions! Surf fisherman and offshore anglers alike rejoice in the fact that the SP10000SW uses the patented X-Shield/X-Protect system to completely seal the reel from any saltwater intrusion – don’t worry about any dunking or sea spray! The Shimano Spheros SP10000SW Spinning Reel’s CF cold forged aluminum spool is braid ready, and capable of accommodating 300 yards of 65# braid – this puts you in the sights of small tuna, yellowtail, amberjack, dorado, kings, cow stripers, bull reds, snook, and tarpon.

Great reel for the money! Xship makes this reel smooth and powerful to reel in that big fish and the Xshield sure is a relief since I use my reel in the surf. Get splashed or short dunks and this reel will handle it.
