Shimano Fishing NZ is proud to announce the release of the new Spheros SW (Saltwater) series of “built-tough” spinning reels.

There are two sizes in Shimano Spheros SW range; the 10000SW and 20000SW designed for both topwater lure casting and serious landbased fishing applications.

Combining features usually reserved for Shimano top-end reel the Spheros SW offers kiwi anglers peace-of-mind fishing within tight budgets or looking for a mid-range reel that delivers on performance and durability.

The Shimano Spheros SW have been engineered to handle the salt and take the knocks. The new Spheros SW spinning reels offer even more angler confidence than ever before.


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

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.

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.

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.

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.
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 ...
