SHIMANO takes great pride in its engineering technology. With a history of excellence going back over 100 years, and a world-wide reputation for technological advancement and unrelenting quality, the exclusive features found on SHIMANO reels deliver a significant benefit to you when fishing, improving performance and increasing fishing enjoyment.
Let’s start with the advantages of a strong and durable fishing reel. It’s important that you’re in control of the fish when hooked. Using an ultra-strong, lightweight body not only acts as a rigid support and protection for internal components, it reduces body twist and deflection, which ensures full power is transmitted from the handle to the rotor.
During fishing, your reel needs to be able to stand up to tough conditions, heavy shocks and excessive pressure. For this reason, the body needs to offer protection and its material, and the material of the internal gearing needs to be strong and precise. To extend the high quality performance and longevity of your reel, SHIMANO has developed the ultra strong, lightweight HAGANE Body and the strong and smooth HAGANE Gear. If you’re using a reel with these technologies, you will definitely feel the benefits.
