The Socorro SW is Shimano’s entry level large saltwater spinning reel, combining versatile performance with remarkable value. Suitable for inshore and some lighter and medium weight offshore work, it features HAGANE Gearing, cold forged Aluminium spool and a Cross Carbon Drag.
If you are looking to purchase a rugged, low cost saltwater spinning reel that will get the job done, the Shimano Socorro SW might be a good option for you. Although this is Shimano’s entry level price point, you still get a full strength gear train that provides smooth and deceptively powerful winding performance. Available in 4 sizes, from 5000 to 10000, you can cast lures, jig and bait fish using all manner of techniques and bait sizes with a Socorro SW. And if you occasionally venture into deeper, offshore situations, it will handle the most common light and medium weight techniques for medium sized species with authority and poise.
With its visually appealing design, incredibly strong Cold Forged Aluminium spool and HAGANE Gear plus X-SHIP combination, the Socorro SW will fit almost every coastal and offshore fishing situation. The Cross Carbon Drag is waterproof and can deliver a consistent pressure in excess of 10kg, to stop most speedsters in their tracks. Available in 4 small to mid-range sizes from 5000 to 10000 and utilising technological advances such as AR-C spool design for long range casting, Socorro SW is a reel any decent saltwater angler will be proud own and use.
