How to Use the 4x8 Digital Control System

1. Open the sideplate
Press the Escape Hatch on the left rear of the reel. You don't need to take the reel off the rod.
2. Mode selection
Choose from X (Extreme Distance), L (Long Distance), A (Accuracy), or W (Wind) Modes.
3. Fine-tune while on the water
Eight different settings allow you to further refine the brake application - on the fly.

Digital Control Circuit
This tiny circuit stores energy on the cast, only to re-use it in an intelligently applied braking application.
Tapered Titanium Levelwind Insert
Titanium provides the lowest friction of any Shimano levelwind insert. The tapered design not only makes it easier to thread the line during setup, but further reduces friction and line angles during the cast for more distance.
