THESE gutsy saltwater-rated spin reels are now even more durable, thanks to some substantial component upgrades.
In fact, many of the Saragosas’ features are also found on the top-of-the-line Stella series.
Encased in a hybrid aluminium and XT7 graphite body with an XGT7 rotor, Shimano’s X-Ship bearing supported pinion gear and larger drive gear delivers remarkable cranking power with less effort and a smoother feel. X-Shield and X-Protect keep salt water out of key areas, while the Cross Carbon drag is also waterproof.
In fact, it is capable of dialing up anywhere from 10 to 20 kilos of hurt on your quarry, depending on the reel model.
A one piece bail arm assembly smoothly guides the line to the roller, Shimano’s Cam Oscillation system combines with the AR-C spool to ensure that braided line like Power Pro lays neatly on the retrieve without any dips or troughs, and leaves the spool with less resistance while casting or in the wake of a big fish.
