The wait is over! Anglers can now get Shimano’s Saragosa SW reel from US retailers
Anglers are now able to get their hands on the eagerly-awaited new Saragosa SW reels from Shimano as they start to hit the shelves of retailers across the US.
Launched at the ICAST 2020 virtual show in July, they have been improved with added Shimano technology and additional sizes, providing a lighter line-up than past generations which Shimano says anglers will find more durable and powerful. “Being able to bring Shimano technology found on flagship Stella SW and TwinPower SW reels all boils down to a line-up that fishermen can count on – as they always have,” said Tristin Poole, of Shimano’s product development team.
The company adds: “The Infinity Drive technology increases the reel’s winding torque under load by 30% compared to its predecessor to give anglers a distinct advantage over hard-fighting game fish. Combined with the battle-tested rigid Hagane Body that will not flex under immense loads and the Hagane Gear to create eternally smooth reeling, the capabilities of the Saragosa SW make it a thoroughbred workhorse among saltwater spinning reels.
“It also features an IPX8-rated waterproof Cross Carbon drag and X-Protect for high-level water resistance to create long-lasting durability without sacrificing performance. No matter whether anglers are fishing inshore or offshore, jigging for bottom fish or casting baits at tailing fish, they can count on the Saragosa SW to stay smooth no matter the conditions and perform when needed most. The bar is raised for saltwater spinning reels.”
The Saragosa SW reels are currently shipping from both Shimano’s Irvine, CA and Ladson, SC warehouses.
