Ultegra FB

In 2017, the Australian market will see the awaited introduction of the Ultegra FB series, designed and built with inspired performance in mind. At the core of the Ultegra FB series sits the Hagane Gear and X-Ship provides robust gear engagementduring the fight. 5+1 shielded A-RB bearings feature in all models ranging from 1000 through to the compact 5000. The drag output ranges from 3kg to 11kg, depending on the model. Providing the Ultegra FB series with vital saltwater resistance is Core Protect. A hydrophobic spray is applied to the roller clutch, the body and the line roller, forming an invisible protective barrier that will oppose water entry and prevent the onset of corrosion. A rigid XGT-7 body forms the reels outer shell and provides the added strength and durability required to target hard fighting species. G Free Body has been incorporated, and as a result shifts the reel’s centre of gravity closer to the rod, enhancing angler comfort.

Hagane Gear

http://www.shimanofish.com.au/content/dam/shimanoweb/fish/au/en/technology-images/hagane_gear_v1_m56577569830985142.png

With amazing strength and durability, the HAGANE Gear is at the very heart of the reel. Shimano, through the application of state-of-the-art technologies, gives you the long-lasting smoothness and pleasure that you feel when you first use a reel, over and over again. No cutting work is applied to the teeth of the drive gear. Instead the entire surface is calculated in minute detail by special 3D design and then formed by Shimano’s cold forging technology. The result is assured resilience. It’s the fruit of Shimano’s inexhaustible pursuit for durability; the strength and power of forged metal continues to represent the fundamental concept of Shimano reels.

By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with our SA-RB bearings and integrating a bigger drive gear, X-Ship stands for Extra, Smooth & High Power. Utilising a double bearing supported pinion gear configuration as well as increasing the size of the gear, Shimano engineers have achieved an overall smoother operation whilst under load and higher power capability of reels featuring this enhancement. This increases the efficiency of your reel, meaning that it will stay smoother and perform at its peak for much longer.

 

 

Coreprotect

Total Protection: The concept of COREPROTECT is simple... to provide water resistance without creating a heavy rotation feeling. There are three key areas of the reel that require protection; the roller clutch, the body and the line roller.

 

 

AR-C Spool

Through tens of thousands of casting tests and computer simulations, it has been determined that the AR-C spool lip design produces longer casting distances than a standard spool lip, 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 results in longer casts with less friction. A spool designed with a V-shape spool lip ensures the line comes off the reel in smaller loops, for longer, more accurate casting.

Shielded Anti-Rust bearings are similar to A-RB, but feature additional shields for the ultimate protection
