SPHEROS Surf

The Shimano Spheros 14000FB saltwater spinning reel has long been the 'go to' of many kiwi anglers that demand a robust and feature rich reel.

Whether it be dropping jigs over pinnacles or casting top water lures for Kingfish this reel takes it in it's stride.

Built tough, the Spheros 14000FB features a light-weight aluminium frame, cold-forged aluminium spool and aluminium rotor, AeroWrap oscillation, Fluidrive II, Dyna-Balance and stopperless design round out a true Shimano work horse.

SPHEROS 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.
These spools provide increased strength and durability over diecast aluminum or graphite spools.
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.
Building upon the successes of Fluidrive, which provides extremely tight tolerances and control in the cutting process, Fluidrive II polishes the gear surface to maximize tooth contact. This increases the efficiency of the retrieve for more power with less effort.

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