Reel Speedcast XS-A offers excellent performance in throwing thanks cold forged AR-C spool, winding line system Aerowrap II and two-speed oscillation. Size 8000 offers a good compromise between large and medium-sized Big Pit reels, so still has a large line capacity (0.45 mm to 270 m), making this reel suitable for fishing on large water areas across Europe. The combination of strong gear ratio 4,6:1 and three encapsulated ball bearings and one roller bearing creates a strong smooth running reel. Therefore, it is suitable for hunting large predators, carp and catfish. Traditional front drag reel offers a fine setting. It is readily available and allows you to easily change settings even during fight with fish. Speedcast XS-A is not only a great freshwater reel, is also surf reel suitable for middle and long distance fishing.
Reel uses the patented Shimano systems :
Power Roller :
The special design of the Shimano Power Roller significantly reduces line twist during the retrieve and is a big advantage when using thin mono and braid.
Super Stopper II :
With the reel set in anti-reverse mode you'll find zero free-play on the handle thanks to Super Stopper II. Unerringly positive every time, its practical benefits include micro increment settings of quiver tips or specialist bite indicators and faster hook setting.
AR-C Spool :
A spool design with a V-shape spool lip ensuring that the line comes off the reel in smaller loops for further and more accurate casting. The AR-C spool will minimise the risk of backlash.
Easy Maintenance :
An easy and efficient way to keep your reel working at optimum performance. This feature enables direct lubrication of the reel's inner workings - without having to take it apart. A small oil lubrication port can be found on each of the S-system reels which, when removed, enables you to apply manufacturer approved lubricants to the inside mechanism.
2 Speed Oscilation :
An advanced way of laying line onto the spool during the retrieve. As the rotor turns, the spool moves forward quickly and then returns slowly. This prevents the coils of line on the spool from bedding in with each other and improves casting performance.
Floating Shaft II :
The key friction area on most fixed spool reels is where the spool drive shaft meets the pinion. Shimano designers have overcome this by reducing a large percentage of surface area contact, and incorporating bearings on either side of the shaft. The resultant design leaves the shaft in a "floating" position, considerably improving efficiency and longevity.
Gentle mechanical main gearbox transmits more torque to the crank rotating coil. Due to small tolerances in gears transmits more torque to the need to use less power. This reduces wear and tear on individual components of the gear. With an amazing 90.3% conversion efficiency, you will not only feel great, but even after years you will enjoy the pleasure of smooth running reel.
Dyna Balance :
Reduces reel wobble and allows produces ultra smooth performance.
Instant Drag :
The Instant Drag system allows you to adjust the clutch from free spool to "fight" in only a few turns. In the interests of fish safety & the environment, please ensure that you do not exceed the breaking strain of the mono/braid when tightening the drag.
Waterproof brake :
Using the rubber seal the brake is protected against dust, sand, water and other impurities.
