NAVI XSB Surf

Don't be fooled by the exceptional price point of the Shimano Navi XSB, this reel punches well above its weight.

With a large capacity cold forged aluminium spool, AR-C line management, the Navi 8000XSB is a distance casting surf reel with a great pedigree.

Featuring 1 shielded stainless steel ball bearing and a roller bearing, the Navi 8000XSB is a slick performer for targeting kahawai, snapper and kingfish

Finished in a metallic silver with contrasting black detail the Navi looks equally as good as it performs and makes an excellent option for anglers wanting casting performance combined with affordability.

NAVI XSB FEATURES
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.
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.
After the anodisation process is finished, a second layer of surface treatment is added. This treatment is forced into the remaining surface impurities. This gives salt no hideout and also results in an extremely smooth to-the-touch finish. A reel with E.I. treatment has more than double the corrosion resistance of a standard anodised reel.
This is an oversized line roller that reduces twist from casting and retrieving and is enhanced with a tapered area on the support to help line get onto the roller quicker.
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 ...
