The iconic TWIN POWER SW series is taken to new heights with the release of the 2021 series.
Designed to challenge the impossible, the Twin Power SW is stronger and more durable than ever across three models - 8000HG, 10000PG and 14000XG.

The inclusion of Infinity Drive reduces handle rotation torque by a maximum of 30% when compared to the previous series.

Heat Sink Drag features in the 10000 and 14000 sizes to reduce the amount of heat transferred to the drag washers and line during the fight.

The X-Protect seal and labyrinth structure repels water intrusion, with the line roller and clutch assembly, the mechanism is more than ten times more durable according to Shimano internal tests.

The new striking silver and blue cosmetics have been paired up with a polished metal handle and power knob to finish the reel off superbly. Engineered to the highest standard for the world's hardest fighting saltwater species.

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.
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 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.

From the body design through to the most intricate parts of the drive train including the drive gear, worm shaft, worm shaft pin and worm shaft gear, every piece has been carefully reviewed. Consequently, the smallest clearance gaps and wobbles have been eliminated to the highest tolerances

X-Protect is a water resistant technology that combines water repellent treatments and a labyrinth type structure to suppress the entry of water.

Shimano ARC Spool, is a patented spool design with an angled spool lip. This design enables the line to leave the spool with less friction and in smaller coils, resulting in longer, more accurate casts. ARC Spools are proven to reduce backlash and wind-knots when using braid. 

By placing sealing gaskets in 12 critical locations throughout the rigid aluminium body, we are able to create a water resistant structure that can hold up against the toughest conditions, and fish that Mother Nature has to offer.

Incorporating large diamater drag washers at the base of the spool provides greater drag stability. The result is smooth and consistent drag performance throughout the fight. The Coil Wave Spring features steady elasticity at any compression level, and little deformation under repeated compression. This results in precise drag adjustments throughout the curve, giving the angler more contol at h...

With Infinity Drive, the Pinion Gear does not make contact with the Main Shaft, as high-sliding bushing supports the main shaft and sliding resistance is reduced. Infinity Drive cuts handle rotation torque by about 30 per cent in comparison to the conventional system, and makes the reel more powerful.

The One Piece bail wire has no gap for line to snag on during normal operation. Made of Stainless Steel, it reduces friction and allows the line to get onto the line roller more efficiently. While reducing the chance of tangles or cuts to the bail arm. 

Rigid Support Drag eliminates spool movement and wobble, even at light drag settings. The result is an incredibly smooth drag even at extremely light settings.
