The SpeedMaster II has been designed for speed and offers some of the fastest retrieves available. Built to provide high end performance and dependability, in a compact lightweight frame, when switched into the low gear mode they deliver unrelenting power, to tame the largest of fish.
If you are looking for an all-purpose high speed multiplier, to cover just about all of your saltwater fishing, the compact SpeedMaster II is the reel you have been looking for. With the added advantage that it falls into the mid-priced cost bracket, whether you are bottom fishing in the deepest oceans, jigging shallow marks or trolling for tuna, the SpeedMaster II has speed to burn when you need it. And when switched into low gear, the high torque, reassuring power and awesome drag performance ensure you come out on top, even when fighting the largest pelagic species.
The rigid aluminium Hagane Body of the SpeedMaster II is remarkably compact for easy handling, especially in the smaller sizes, and prevents any misalignment of the internal moving parts. It also has Shimano’s high performance E.I. surface treatment to protect against corrosion. Internally the stainless steel gearing is supported by 4 Shielded S A-RB Bearings, which resist corrosion and ensure smooth performance, even at the highest speeds or under extreme pressure. The powerful drag is operated by the easy to operate drag leaver, which ratchets securely in place and as an extra bonus a spare drag lever, which produces a less aggressive drag curve for optimal use with monofilament lines, when fishing for pelagic species, is also included.
