A design concept for a tougher more efficient fishing reel — HAGANE

The more you challenge, the more you learn the strengths of your target.

With every battle, you step forward. You evolve. You become stronger, tougher, more experienced. You become more resilient and so does your tackle.

HAGANE is a Shimano reel design concept created to withstand continual use and extreme abuse. HAGANE is an innovation of built in toughness and durability, working alongside Shimano’s precision engineering. As you evolve, we evolve.

The durability, smoothness and strength of the gearing (HAGANE Gear), efficient power transmission (X-SHIP) and the incredibly rigid reel body (HAGANE Body) creates the heart of the concept. The more you use it, the more you realize the value of HAGANE.

HAGANE Gear

Highly durable cold-forged aluminum drive gear

With amazing strength and durability, the HAGANE Gear is at the very heart of the reel.

Shimano, through the application of state-of-the-art technologies, gives you the long-lasting smoothness and pleasure that you feel when you first use a reel, over and over again.

No cutting work is applied to the teeth of the drive gear. Instead the entire surface is calculated in minute detail by special 3D design and then formed by Shimano’s cold forging technology. The result is assured resilience.

It’s the fruit of Shimano’s inexhaustible pursuit for durability; the strength and power of forged metal continues to represent the fundamental concept of Shimano reels.

X-SHIP

The Embodiment of smoothness

The X-SHIP system gives reels increased gearing efficiency and power, eliminating twist and rotor flex. The result is powerful and silky smooth cranking by efficiently and effectively transmitting input power. 

 

 

 

HAGANE Body

Metal body with extreme rigidity

The HAGANE Body is a metal reel body with high rigidity. The body stiffness and impact resistance virtually eliminates body flexing. The result transforms the angler’s actions directly into cranking power. It’s efficiency through strength.
