BEASTMASTER MD 12000 ELECTRIC REEL

$2,399.99(RRP)

A true beast that can conquer the largest fish and tame the depths of the ocean.

The Beastmaster MD 12000 is the strongest and largest electric reel Shimano has ever produced, created with the mission of achieving overwhelming power, speed, and durability, for fishing in deep waters targeting giant fish. At the heart of the powertrain which bears the name MD 'Monster Drive', is the newly developed GIGA MAX brushless motor. With 2.5 times the torque and a constant practical hoisting power of 38kg, it has achieved significantly improved performance in comparison to the 19 Beastmaster 9000. The drag force, which is a decisive factor when fighting with large fish, has achieved an astonishing 43kg. The HAGANE body, a highly rigid metal body, houses this astonishing power. While an improved reinforced gear system, whereby the reduction gear is supported by bearings, achieves impressive efficiency and durability during long fights and fully demonstrates performance in actual battles. The synergistic effect of the new motor, powerful drag system, improved reduction gears, and heat dissipation structure provides unprecedented winding strength and speed, stability, and high durability. By combining the best Shimano technologies and design we have created a reel that overturns conventional concepts. The line capacity, PE8/1200m, has been designed to support anglers that are targeting large hapuka, bass, and swordfish.

About power source. This product is not powered by a lithium battery. To ensure full performance of the reel we recommend the use of a high-capacity battery (11AH).

Disclaimer. Use of the maximum drag capacity will put significant load on rod holders and gunnels, please ensure these are suitable prior to use. Shimano not responsible for any damages that might happen due to the use of this product.

KEY FEATURES

Experience the power of the NEW GIGA MAX MOTOR while targeting big fish in even the deepest waters.

Comparison of practical constant hoisting power.

Shimano's GIGA-MAX MOTOR is installed only in the Beastmaster series of electric reels. The biggest feature is that the motor has a brushless structure, it does not include carbon of copper bushes which are used to conduct current, as such there are no parts to wear out and the motor has a high durability and a long life expectancy. Another great feature is that it can exert strong power even at high temperatures, where performance of motors with brushes tend to deteriorate. The Beastmaster MD12000 is equipped with a newly developed NEW GIGA-MAX MOTOR that has been enlarged to achieve overwhelming power and speed. The motor has achieved 2.5 times the torque (*). It also recorded overwhelming speed and strength in winding power and speed tests. You can experience a new dimension of motor power from the moment begin retrieving.

*In comparison with 19 Beastmaster 9000.

 

Maximum drag force of 43kg that won't compromise on big fish.

When pulling a huge fish away from a reef, the drag of the reel is subjected to an unimaginable load. At this time, a drag with uncompromising strength is a requirement for a reel that provides a sense of security to the angler. The drag system installed in the Beastmaster MD 12000 achieves a maximum drag force of 43kg, which is a 72% increase in drag force compared to the 19 Beastmaster 9000. In order to fully utilize the overwhelming winding power of NEW GIGA-MAX MOTOR, it is inevitable to improve the drag force. You can challenge large fish with more power than ever before.

 

A heat dissipation system that enables long fights with large fish.

For example, during a long, high-load, extreme fight such as a deep-sea encounter with a bluefin over 50kg or a yellowfin tuna over 50kg, if the drag continues to slip for a long time, the temperature of the side plate will rise. And the phenomenon caused by the temperature of the electric reel rising is a decrease in each performance. The Beastmaster MD 12000 uses an aluminum for part of the side plate, improving heat dissipation by 60% (*) and strengthening the body.

*In comparison with 19 Beastmaster 9000.

 

Reinforced gear system that delivers high power and durability.

No matter how good the motor is or how strong the drag is, it's meaningless if the gear that transmits it is weak. Shimano's commitment lies in the details of the gear. The Beastmaster MD 12000 is equipped with a reinforced gear system that has significantly strengthened the gear system, such as supporting the reduction gear with bearings, and has achieved impressive durability. The synergistic effect of the NEW GIGA MAX MOTOR, powerful drag, and heat dissipation system provides unprecedented winding strength and speed, stability, and high durability.

 

A powerful handle that won't compromise on precious moments, whether on the ocean floor or on the surface.

For deep sea fishing using a weight of 2kg or more, when releasing the weight from the bottom and/or when the current is fast, it takes a lot of force to wind it by hand. At the same time when the bottom is hit there is a big chance that a large fish will bite. Sometimes it goes straight into a fight. Beastmaster MD 12000 uses an 80/92mm long handle to enable powerful manual winding (*). What is noteworthy is that after reeling in a large fish to the vicinity of the boat's gunwale, it is easier to bring it closer using the handle. Everything down to the handle has been carefully designed to fight with large fish.

*Handle length can be changed to 80mm/92mm

The CROSS CARBON DRAG provides the smooth drag release and the durability.


HAGANEBODY_RL_EL
HAGANE BODY

The HAGANE Body is a metal reel body with high rigidity. The body rigidity and impact resistance virtually eliminate body flexing on the reel while fighting a fish. The result transforms the angler's actions directly into cranking power,


GIGAMAXMOTOR_RL_EL
GIGA MAX MOTOR

The GigaMax Motor utilizes a brushless design to provide high torque and high speed while maximizing durability.


THERMOADJUSTDRAG_RL_EL
THERMO ADJUST DRAG

Thermo Adjust Drag is a control function designed to suppress abnormal heat generation of the drag to maintain stable drag performance. If the drag slips while the motor of the electric reel is on, the gear will idle and cause an abnormal heat generation in the drag portion of the reel. As a way to suppress excess heat, the speed of the motor is automatically reduced by the Thermo Adjust Drag when the drag begins to slip.


e-EXCITINGDRAGSOUND_RL_EL
e-EXCITING DRAG SOUND

The e-Exciting Drag Sound is an electronic drag sound from the reel when a fish makes a run. This creates a modern solution to the mechanical clicker while adding excitement to an angler’s experience.


SA-RB_RL_EL
S A-RB

S A-RB bearings are put through the same process as Shimano’s A-RB bearings but feature shields on both sides of the bearings. These shields reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting the rotation of the bearing.
