The Tsunami Shield Spinning Reels feature many key elements most anglers want in their reels. The Shield Spinning reels feature up to 13 seals to protect critical components in order to withstand dunking, splashes, and debris from entering the reel. A CF3 carbon drag system provides for a strong and smooth drag while its aluminum body, side plate, rotor, and handle arm keep the reel light but strong. A stainless steel main shaft provides for extra strength while under heavy drag pressures. To finish it off, a lightweight EVA knob provides for comfort and enhanced dexterity even when wet, which is something this reel is designed to get!
