Product Description

The Shimano Spheros SW SP5000SW Spinning Reel lays waste to the competition – more specifically, that competition is sealed saltwater reels for under 200 bones. Packed with more stellar Shimano features than ever before, the SP5000SW is one of the best buys on the market, hands down. This reel is perfect for many different applications including kayak fishing for bass, blues, reds, or snook, light plugging from the beach or boat, bucktailing fluke, or even some light jigging for small pelagics like schoolie dorado or kings. The SP5000SW comes equipped with Shimano’s amazing X-Ship system which places bearings at either end of the pinion gear ensuring it will stay firmly in place even when under full duress. Additionally, four shielded A-RB bearings are placed throughout the Spheros 5000 making for a smooth and fluid retrieve. The reel uses X-Shield/X-Protect, a system of strategically placed seals and coatings to keep saltwater out of the internals. The Shimano Spheros SP5000SW Spinning Reel uses the new Cross Carbon Drag material which gives you a wider range of drag settings (max drag is 22#), and is the smoothest drag that’s ever been produced by Shimano. You’ll fit 225 yards of 30# braid on the CF Aluminum Cold Forged Spool, putting you well within range of midsized inshore species.

    Shimano Spheros SW
    By Luis on October 26th, 2015

    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.
