ULTEGRA XSC Surf
** NEW FOR 2013 **
The Shimano Ultegra 14000 XSC is the benchmark for all landbased and surf fishing around the expansive New Zealand rock ledges and pristine beach environments.
The Ultegra 14000 XSC features include Shimano's flagship features such as X-Ship, AR-C Line Management System, Dyna Balanced Rotor, Super Stopper ll, Aerowrap ll, 2 speed oscillation, Baitrunner Cold Forged Aluminium Spool that eats up a whopping 500 meters of 50lb Power Pro.
Long distance surf casting from the shore line is effortless with this long cast reel and the drag pressure the Ultegra 14000 XSC outputs a massive 20kg of drag power that will easily tame the biggest snapper, cod, kahawai, shark, ray or kingfish that swims.
Included is a spare spool that enables the angler to have varied line classes spooled and at the ready to match varying environments, conditions and target species - a truly versatile beast, just add salt water!!
|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.|
|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.|
|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.|
|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 pr...|
|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 sm...|
|S-Concept represents Shimanos initial philosophy on which many of our spinning reel have been designed. The three basic ideas that are inherent in the S-Concept are Smooth, Silent and Strong. Smooth rotation and comfortable retrieve, coupled with exc...|
Shimano New Zealand provides a TEN YEAR WARRANTY on all Shimano fishing reels, against defects in materials and/or faulty workmanship.
|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; less effort and power giving ...|
|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....|
