Smooth, Silent & Powerful: Shimano® Spinning Reels
Sensitivity, power and precision, all packed into one reel. Shimano® fishing reels deliver reliable performance on the water.
Spinning reels are simple to use—making them a popular choice among anglers. And Shimano® spinning reels are designed for lightweight, versatile performance with every cast.
Discover the reel that’s right for your outing and environment. Shimano®’s X-Ship technology offers enhanced gear durability and alignment for decreased friction and increased cranking power. Shimano’s S-Concept technology is packed into reels to deliver stronger, smoother and silent performance on the water for reliable and lasting use year after year.
Spinning reels are mounted on the underside of a spinning rod. The spinning reel spool is located parallel to the rod, and does not rotate as you cast. This minimizes line tangling. It’s a simple, common-sense design that makes the spinning reel popular among beginner and skilled anglers alike.
Shimano® spinning reels are crafted with High Efficiency Gearing technology. This system includes not only the gears, but the set plate and side plate of the reel.
High Efficiency Gearing increases leverage and power in the reel. A one-piece frame includes the set plate and a one-piece side plate, eliminating flex that typically causes gears to bind under pressure. This results in smooth, high-speed retrieves with unbelievable torque.
Keep in mind these factors when selecting your Shimano® fishing reel:
- Line Capacity: The amount of fishing line you’ll need depends on your outing. If you’re casting into a pond or stream, you require only minimal line capacity. If you’re fishing in a lake, you’ll need line capacity to handle the water’s depth. So think about your fishing environment and your game fish. Lower ratios are better for bringing in fish at deeper depths. Higher ratios are better suited for fishing close to the surface.
- Line Capacity: The amount of fishing line you’ll need depends on your outing. If you’re casting into a pond or stream, you require only minimal line capacity. If you’re fishing in a lake, you’ll need line capacity to handle the water’s depth.
- Ball Bearings: The more ball bearings in your reel, the smoother it will work, particularly under pressure.
