Shimano X-Protect feature is a labyrinth design three-lipped rubber seal system that offers exceptional water resistance without sacrificing light gear and rotor rotation feel. Shimanos cold-forged aluminum Hagane gear offers both strength and smoothness, providing anglers the power needed when hooked into a 50-pound plus striper. Both the Ultegra CI4+ 5500 XTC and 14000 XTC feature large diameter long stroke spools to retrieve up to 41-inches per crank. On the larger 14000, Shimano also includes its Super Slow 5 oscillation system creating perfect line lay and allows line to leave the spool perfectly. Anglers will notice how Super Slow 5 oscillation puts them within range whether its targeting big stripers in the Cape Cod Canal, working the beach at Hatteras, or casting past the breakers for tarpon, snook and tarpon.By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with bearings, the pinion gear maintains precise alignment with the drive gear. This means the gears will stay in the same position under the heaviest loads. The added benefit is that friction between the spool shaft and gear are eliminated. This will enhance the casting performance of the reel with lighter lures, and allow for longer casts.
Shimano Instant Drag : allows a quick adjustment of the front drag knob to take the reel from your current drag setting to free spool in just half a turn. S A-RB Bearings : These bearings have been through the same process as our A-RB bearings, but feature shields on both sides of the bearings that reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting the bearings rotation.Hagane Gear : With amazing strength and durability, the Hagane Gear is at the very heart of the reel. Shimano, through state-of-the-art technologies, gives you the long-lasting smoothness and pleasure that you feel when you first use a reel, over and over again. No cutting work is applied to the teeth of the drive gear.
Instead the entire surface is calculated in minute detail by special 3D design and then formed by Shimano's cold forging technology. The result is assured resilience. It's the fruit of Shimano's inexhaustible pursuit for durability; the strength and power of forged metals continues to represent the fundamental concept of Shimano's reels. X-Protect : By combining Shimanos water repellent coating ad their specially designed, water channeling, labyrinth construction, X Protect provides high-level water resistance without sacrificing light gear and rotor rotation.
Super Stopper II anti-reverse uses a one-way bearing that eliminates back play. This provides the angler with instant hook setting power.In some reels, the Super Stopper II can be turned off to allow back reeling for special techniques and situations. Super Slow Oscillation 5 : Slower spool oscillation reduces the speed the line travels up and down the spool on the cast. This results less friction as line leaves the spool and reduced drag on the lead, which improves casting distance and accuracy. SHIMANO STANDARD Oscillation (up to 20 wraps per cycle) outperforms the industry standard. SHIMANO SLOW OSCILLATING (up to 40 wraps per cycle) exceeds almost anything else ever seen. Shimano now has two SUPER SLOW OSCILLATION systems SUPER SLOW 5 (55 wraps) and SUPER SLOW 10 (105 wraps). G Free Body Technology has been developed to shift the reel's center of gravity closer to the rod.
By moving the center of gravity closer to the anglers hand position, the G Free Body helps to reduce fatigue and enhance casting comfort. Designed for the serious surf caster. 5+1 bearing system with Super Stopper II. Large diameter long stroke spools to retrieve up to 41-inches per crank.
