Twinpower XD

In Shimano’s pursuit of the ultimate in durability and performance, the Twin Power XD has been born and set a new benchmark for saltwater spinning reels. Featuring the battle tested cold forged Hagane Gear, X-Ship and Magnum Light Rotor. To oppose unwanted saltwater intrusion, X Protect provides the Twin Power XD with Shimano’s highest degree of protection. Developed specially for the XD series, X Protect leverages a waterproof labyrinth structure that blocks any internal saltwater entry. Three models with 9 SA-RB bearings and 1 roller bearing will feature in the Australian market, including a compact 3000 and 5000 size, alongside a standard 4000 size. Finished with a metallic blue base with silver and gold highlights, the Twin Power XD stays true its premium pedigree.



Hagane Gear


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.



Hagane Body


The HAGANE Body is a metal reel body with high rigidity. The body stiffness and impact resistance virtually eliminates body flexing. The result transforms the angler’s actions directly into cranking power. It’s efficiency through strength.



MGL Spool


Shimano's mew Magnumlite Spool design incorporates a unique porting technique that allows for precision cut holes to be inserted into the side of the spool. This advancement significantly reduces weight and creates a low moment of inertia, meaning less effort is required to propel the spool into motion when cast. As a result casting distance is increased by 15% when compared to a standard spool with the same capacity.



G Free Body


G Free Body technology has been developed to shift the reel’s center of gravity closer to the rod. By moving the center of gravity closer to the anglers hand position, the G Free Body helps to reduce fatigue and enhance casting comfort.





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.





The first lip in the proprietary three-lipped rubber seal system is designed to keep low pressure water out. Then grease between the second and third lips resists high pressure water while enhancing a smooth rotor rotation.





We have upgraded our light-weight carbon material Ci4. Keeping it light weight, rigidity and durability of the material under fishing conditions are highly improved. From this characteristic, we were able to reduce the volume and weight of the rotor and the body.



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



One Piece Bail


One Piece Bail allows the line to travel unimpeded to the line roller. Its seamless design reduces friction and the chance of tangles or cuts to the bail arm.



Rigid Support Drag


This innovative feature eliminates spool wobble, even at light drag settings. So no matter what your drag setting, the spool will not wobble. The result is an incredibly smooth drag even at extremely light settings.
