Shimano Saragosa SW A Spinning Reels
And the Legend Continues! The Shimano Saragosa Spinning Reels have remained a workhorse for years, whether you're targeting stripers & blues in the surf, jigging for snapper and grouper in the gulf coast, or targeting pelagics offshore, this reel has been used throughout the country for just about everything.
For 2020, Shimano introduced several new technologies to reel to keep and enhance its workhorse status. Like the previous model, sealing is a must especially for the saltwater environments and this reel keeps up with that commitment. Its new cross carbon drag is IPX8 rated, allowing this reel to take abuse, splashes, and dunks and maintain that out of the box feel for the long haul. The new body Hagane Body has also been compacted down and cut in weight, giving the reel even better feeling on more modern-day rods so you are easily able to use them all day. Infinity Drive improves the actual winding experience through the use of a new main shaft supporting structure to eliminate friction within the pinion gear. This reduces winding torque by nearly 26%, giving the new Saragosa an incredibly light and smooth rotation of the handle.
Hagane Gearing: A cold foraged gear set for the heart of reel, assisting with gear durability, longevity, strength, and smoothness.
Infinity Drive: A design where the pinion gear inner does not make contact with the main shaft, as a high-sliding bushing supports the main shaft. With this new structure, the sliding resistance of the main shaft is drastically reduced.
