With the W (Wind) mode on the I-DC5 circuit installed in this reel, prevention against backlash under strong wind conditions have been reinforced. This means that lures which are heavily affected by air resistance can also be cast with ease by anglers. Castability is increased with the use of Magnumlite Spool. In addition to the cold-forged body, the micromodule gear featured in this reel has allowed for a smooth rotation feel at a very low noise level. Finally, the rotational resitance of the spool is further reduced by using a new rotor clutch by Shimano.
