They feature an XT-7 body and rotor, SR one piece bail, cold forged Aluminium spool and gear, waterproof drag, shielded AR-B, maintenance port and single Biomechanical handle. New for 2011 the 6000 and 8000 models are also available with a traditional handle grip, which is sure to appeal to UK Carp enthusiasts.
Baitrunner System: a feature that has proved so beneficial that it has become a standard on big fish reels. Baitrunner is a lever located on the rear of the reel that allows the reel to be set so that line is released in controlled free-spool.
S-ARB: The original high corrosion resistant A-RB ball bearing with a shielding for improved protection and sealed lubrication.
Dyna-Balance: Reduces reel wobble and allows produces ultra-smooth performance.
Power Roller: Significantly reduces line twist during the retrieve and is a big advantage when using thin mono and braid.
Super stopper II: With the reel set in anti-reverse mode you’ll find zero free-play on the handle. Unerringly positive every time, its practical benefits include micro increment settings of quiver tips or specialist bite indicators and faster hook setting.
Floating Shaft II: The key friction area on most fixed spool reels is where the spool drive shaft meets the pinion. Shimano designers have overcome this by reducing a large percentage of surface area contact, and incorporating bearings on either side of the shaft. The resultant design leaves the shaft in a “floating” position, considerably improving efficiency and longevity.
AR-C Spool: A spool design with a V-shape spool lip ensuring that the line comes off the reel in smaller loops for further and more accurate casting. The AR-C spool will minimise the risk of backlash.
