The Speedmaster XTC/XSC offer remarkable value and are the perfect long range reels for anglers who are starting to become serious about carp or surf fishing. Containing features taken directly from the more expensive Shimano models, like Super Slow 5 oscillation, the reels visually match perfectly with the latest trends in their selected disciplines.
If you are the type of angler who recognises a great combination of value, quality and performance, you’ll immediately be drawn to the Speedmaster models. With the same G Free Body silhouette as many of the leading Shimano long range reels, and fashionable understated colours, the Speedmaster certainly looks the part. And in use they don’t disappoint. With top features like Super Slow 5 Oscillation and Aero Wrap line lay, these reels enable you to get the most out of your casting technique and with X-SHIP gearing technology they are silky smooth, even under pressure. A great choice for anglers of all abilities.
It really is difficult to fault the Speedmaster reels. They have inherited many of the top features used by the leading Shimano long range reels. For example Super Slow 5 line oscillation is used on all long range reels right up to the Power Aero price point, as is G Free Body, Parallel Body, and cold forged aluminium AR-C spools. You even get a set of spool reducers in with the reel. When it comes to playing fish the X-SHIP technology optimises winding efficiency and the Instant Drag enables super fast adjustment of drag tension to control fish with minimal fuss. All things considered, whilst Speedmaster offers remarkable value, it still maintains the credibility of its more expensive cousins.
One of the most popular big pit reels in the Shimano line up for its no nonsense approach. Superb looks, terrific performance and a price point which won’t break the bank, what more could you ask for!
A reel that is often overlooked by its more expensive stable mates, the Speed master XTC/XSC goes about its business quietly changing opinions one angler at a time. Having used the XTC personally on large open quarries where distance casting is often required, all the way down to small intricate and intimate waters the Speedmaster performed faultlessly which is in part due to the amount of technology that has somehow been squeezed into the body.
