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.Aero Wrap II : This two-speed oscillation system layers the line onto the spool in a criss-cross pattern that reduces line-to-line friction for longer casts. Aerowrap reels utilize a worm gear design to move the spool upward quickly and downward slowly to wind the line in a precise pattern, reducing friction and giving smoother, longer casting ability. Dyna-Balance : This feature eliminates wobble during the retrieve by counter balancing the rotor to enhance sensitivity and smoothness.
By using computer balancing, an approach similar to car tire balancing, we are able to redistribute the rotor weight to create smooth rotation and eliminate vibrations caused by the reel. 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). Designed for the serious surf caster. Super Slow Oscillation (14000 model).
AeroWrap II for perfect line lay. 4+1 bearing system with Super Stopper II. Retrieve rate: 41 per handle turn. Spare spool and 3 line-reduction spacers.
