Improved machined aluminum handle, available in an expanded range of ergonomically-designed grip shapes, allows you to precisely tailor the reel to maximize both comfort and control. The advanced Aero Wrap II oscillation system, working in combination with the SR Concept one-piece bail wire and exclusive Propulsion Spool Lip design, provides increased casting distance with less effort. Waterproof drag system, shielded A-RB Bearings and Shimano’s Paladin Gears ensure that these reels retain their outstanding out-of-the-box smoothness for years.
