Shimano Exsense Spinning Reels
The Shimano Exsense Spinning Reels is a featherlight and exceptionally smooth package that packs some serious performance for the salt and freshwater angler alike. The Exsense utilizes a saltwater safe magnesium body which gives the reel its lightweight form while retaining strength and rigidity.
Shimano packed many flagship technologies into this reel, such as Micro Module Gearing, Hagane Gearing, and MGL Rotor. Micro Module Gearing uses smaller gear teeth to create a more efficient gear train, while Hagane Gearing uses a unique process of cold foraged gears made to the most minute detail, giving the gearing more strength and durability. The MGL Rotor cuts the weight of the Rotor by 25%, giving the reel lighter start-up inertia and quicker responsiveness.
X-Protect combines a water-repellant coating with a labyrinth styled construction to provide this reel with high-level water resistance. It is truly designed for saltwater in mind and by using X-Protect, light gear and rotor rotation aren't sacrificed to give this reel feather-light controlling.
