BIOMASTER Spinning

The Shimano Biomaster SW8000PG is a quality reel at an affordable price that has been designed specifically for saltwater use. This means that it will not let you down when hooked-up to a tough offshore species such as New Zealand's, infamous thug, the kingfish.

The SW letters in the Shimano Biomaster name stand for 'salt water', while PG is for 'power gear'. Make no mistake; this reel is tough, rugged and intended for use on seriously hard fighting species.

The Shimano Biomaster SW8000PG is capable of fishing an incredible 13 kilos of drag and the 8000PG takes on 290 meters of 50lb braid.

BIOMASTER FEATURES
These bearings have been through the same process as our A-RB bearings, but feature shields on both sides of the bearings that reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting the bearings rotation.
The Super Free bearing-supported pinion gear system (SF) was designed to eliminate friction on the spool shaft during the cast. In standard baitcasting reels, when the clutch bar is pressed down, the pinion gear is freed and can actually drag on the spool shaft, creating friction and limiting the length of the cast. With SF, the pinion gear is supported by a ball bearing, and when the clutch is di...
These spools provide increased strength and durability over diecast aluminum or graphite spools.
Super Stopper II anti-reverse uses a one-way bearing that eliminates backplay.This provides the angler with instant hooksetting power. In some reels, the Super Stopper II can be turned off to allow backreeling for special techniques and situations.
Aero Wrap II is a worm gear oscillation system with a specially designed pitch to create optimal oscillation speeds for the Propulsion Spool Lip design. It provides uniform line lay and winding shape to prevent loss of energy during the cast while providing longer casts than other oscillation systems. So, casting distance increases with less effort required.
The SR-Concept combines the new concept of Reliance with all aspects of the S-Concept: Smooth, Silent and Strong. The Reliance Concept, or R-Concept, means that dreams in reel design are now evolving into reality. The result of the use of the new S-R Concept in design is the development of many exciting new features.

Shimano New Zealand provides a TEN YEAR WARRANTY on all Shimano fishing reels, against defects in materials and/or faulty workmanship.
