Product Description

The Shimano Spheros SP8000SW Spinning Reel is widely used here in the Northeast, as well as across the world in the surf and offshore. You’ll love the smooth feel of the Spheros 80000SW thanks to 4 total shielded A-RB ball bearings that grace the interior of the reel. Additionally, there are bearings at either end of the pinion gear ensuring its rigidity and placement during the fight – this is Shimano’s patented X-Ship system, and makes the Spheros a rock solid saltwater spinning reel capable of targeting large predatory species ranging from cow stripers to schoolie tuna and large dorado. Shimano’s brand new Cross Carbon drag system smoothly pumps out 27# of run stopping drag, and the powerful 4.8:1 gear ratio ensures you’ll have ample cranking power while dominating your prey. The SP8000SW is perfect for surf fisherman as well, as the X-Shield/X-Protect system coats and places seals at crucial points around the reel to keep saltwater and sand out of the internals. This is also important for offshore anglers taking spray over the bow – no need for reel covers here! The CF cold forged aluminum spool will easily take 350 yards of 40# braid, and is heavy duty to handle the stress from large, powerful fish. The Shimano Spheros SP8000SW Spinning Reel is perfect for either throwing heavy plugs and poppers, or doing some vertical jigging – either way, you’ll love the performance and the value!

    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.
