The Shimano Spheros SW SP20000SW Spinning Reel just might be the single smoothest low cost big game spinning reel on the market! Everything about this reel screams expensive – except the price tag. The power to price ratio is nearly obscene, with the Cross Carbon Drag system steadily pumping out 41# of the smoothest drag a Spheros has ever seen. This reel is well within range of large pelagic species, and with a CF cold forged aluminum spool that’s capable of holding over 400 yards of 80# braid, you’ll easily hunt large tuna, wahoo, sails, striped and white marlin, and record class dorado and kings. Because this reel is designed for hunting big game, you’ll love the X-Ship system which places a ball bearing at either end of the Hargane bodied pinion gear. This increases the overall rigidity of the reel, and ensures the gearing will stay firmly in place even when being tested by a pelagic slob. The SP20000SW is incredibly smooth, thanks in part to the 4 shielded A-RB ball bearings tactically placed throughout the reel’s interior. Because the SP20000SW uses the X-Shield/X-Protect system, which deliberately places seals throughout the reel at crucial locations and blankets the reel with saltwater resistant coating, you’ll never need to worry about salt spray again! The Shimano Spheros SP20000SW Spinning Reel will dish out legendary beat downs that will live on for generations, and you’ll be sure to fall in love at first crank!

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.
