Shimano Twin Power XD Spinning Reels bring luxury to inshore fishing! If you love fishing for inshore saltwater species, a Twin Power XD should be at the top of your wish list. It features a Hagane body which reduces flex, G-Free body technology which produces a reel that is extremely well balanced in your hand, X-Ship, ten ball bearings and a Cross Carbon drag system that puts out 20-24 lbs of fish stopping drag at max (depending on the model). Shimano has also incorporated X-Protect which is a system of seals to keep water and salt from penetrating the reel while not impeeding the performance of the reel. Internally, Shimano built their top of the line Hagane gear system into the Twin Power XD. When you take all of these features plus Shimano's level of quality, you get a reel that is super smooth, incredibly powerful and a lot of fun to fish! If you are passionate about inshore fishing and you want to invest in your tackle, this is the reel to get. If you were thinking of buying a Sustain, a Shimano Twin Power XD Spinning Reel is the fishing reel you should buy.
Shimano Twin Power XD Spinning Reels are available in 3000, 4000 and 5000 sizes. They all feature high gear ratios (6.2:1-6.4:1).
Models: TPXDC3000XG, TPXD4000XG, TPXDC5000XG

This is an awesome little reel. I paired the TPXDC3000XG, 20lb Spider Wire Ultracast to a St Croix Legend Inshore 7' MHF and tried out a little Blackfish jigging. The drag held very strong to get pull them clear from the structures. My only complaint is the knob. I like the EVA, but I wish it was bigger. Maybe the same size knob as the 4000/5000 series, so I plan on swapping the knob out at some point in near future.
