TWINPOWER XD Spinning

In Shimano's pursuit of the ultimate in durability and performance, the Twin Power XD has been born and set a new benchmark for saltwater spinning reels.

The battle tested cold forged Hagane Gear has received a significant upgrade through advancements in Shimano's high precision technology, resulting in a strength rating that is comparable to one size larger in the previous model. Additionally, X-Ship provides vital pinion and drive gear support, ensuring optimum arrangement for ultra-light smooth reeling. To further protect the engagement of the XD's internals, the Hagane Body acts as a rigid aluminum armor that firmly suppresses any distortion and twisting when under load.

To oppose unwanted saltwater intrusion, X Protect provides the Twin Power XD with Shimano's highest degree of protection. Developed specially for the XD series, X Protect leverages a waterproof labyrinth structure on top of the anti-reverse bearing which blocks any internal saltwater entry into the body. This is also combined with a new water repellent treatment that is applied to the body, line rollers and roller clutch, making the reel ideal for saltwater applications.

The new Magnum Light Rotor enables effortless winding through a 14 % reduction in rotational resistance and a 30% improvement in rigidity. G Free body shifts the reel's center of gravity closer to the reel seat, perfecting the reel's balance and feel when in your hand.

Two models with 9 SA-RB bearings and 1 roller bearing will feature in the Australian market, including a compact 3000 and 5000 size, alongside a standard 4000 size. A carbon cloth drag stack creates between 9kg and 11kg of drag pressure depending on the size and a large diameter drag knob gives you the ability to easily adjust your drag during the fight. Finished with a metallic blue base with silver and gold highlights, the Twin Power XD stays true its premium pedigree.

TWINPOWER XD FEATURES
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.

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


HAGANE Gear is at the very heart of the reel and creates strength and durability. The entire cold-forging process is calculated in minute detail by special 3D design and the result is precision durability.

HAGANE Body means this reel has a high rigidity and zero twist. The body stiffness and impact resistance virtually eliminates body flexing. The result transforms the anglers actions directly into cranking power. It's efficiency through strength.

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...
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.
Through tens of thousands of casting tests and computer simulations it has been determined that this new AR-C 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 the spool in smaller loops during the cast, which means less slap on the stripper guide. This means longer casts ...
Carbon Interfusion 4 (valence electrons) is a graphite body material that has been reinforced with carbon fibre. Lighter than Magnesium, yet strong enough to cope with the stresses of saltwater fishing.
