Shimano TwinPower XD Spinning Reels (2021)
Bringing the fight to the light tackle inshore/freshwater market, the Shimano TwinPower XD Spinning Reels come in with overwhelming power and smoothness for a small compact reel. This reel is deemed as one of the toughest offerings in their Magnumlite series of spinning reels. It has ultimate power transmission due to its rigid aluminum Hagane body, which sets it apart when fighting species we see here in the Northeast such as striped bass, tautog, and albies. It also offers itself as a great reel when targeting bull reds, snook, and small grouper down South.
The TwinPower XD's MGL rotor gives the reel a feather-lite to almost non-existent feel to every rotation of the handle, giving the angler quick start-and-stop rotation, perfect for impacting the retrieve of plugs or reacting to a strike. MicroModule Gear II provides for a smoother and quieter turn of the handle, as Shimano's technicians analyzed the surfaces of the drive gear and pinion gear to obtain ultimate perfection from the ground up.
