SAROS FA Spinning

Redesigned for 2012, the Shimano Saros FA Spinning Reel introduces Shimano's newest proprietary XGT7 material, which is 200-times stronger than the material used on previous models. The super strong high tech frame, rotor and side-plate construction provide an exceptionally solid feel, and Shimano's X-Ship technology dishes out incredible cranking power. Also featuring Shimano's Rapid Fire Drag for easy and accurate adjustments when fighting fish, the Shimano Saros FA Spinning Reel is the new standard in mid range spinning reels from Shimano.

The Shimano Saros FA is has had a stylish cosmetic makeover for 2012 as well and is available in two sizes – the 3000FA and 4000FA. This versatile reel is suited to all manner of spinning applications from casting Rapala lures to trout and salmon or softbaiting with TriggerX for snapper, kahawai, blue cod and kingfish the Saros FA has it covered.

SAROS FA 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.
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.
By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with our S-ARB bearings and integrating a bigger drive gear, Shimano increased the gearing efficiency and power. This results in a fishing reel with ultra-light handle rotation, giving a perfect rotation even under heavy loads.
Paladin Gear Durability Enhancement Spinning Using a special cold forged aluminum drive gear and a hardened brass pinion gear. Reels equipped with the Paladin Gear Durability Enhancement will retain their out-of-the-box smoothness much longer than before. In fact, testing has shown that this combination is more durable than an all-stainless steel drivetrain while maintaining the smoothness that Sh...
The most obvious component of the Propulsion Line Management System is the new Propulsion spool lip design. Through tens of thousands of casting tests and computer simulations it has been determined that this new spool lip design provides longer casting distances than a standard spool lip design while preventing backlashes and wind knots from forming. It also allows the line to flow off of the spo...
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.
This feature eliminates wobble during the retrieve by counter balancing the rotor to enhance sensitivity and smoothness. By using computer balancing, an approach similar to car tire balancing, we are able to redistribute the rotor weight to create smooth rotation and eliminate vibrations caused by the reel.
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.
Normal oscillation systems use a constant rotation of the oscillation gear that, when translated to the cam, provides an inconsistent spool speed. This results in line lay that stacks at either end of the spool. By using an oval oscillation gear, we are able to alter the speed of the oscillation cam to provide a consistent spool speed. This results in an even line lay that provides excellent casta...
