Shimano Power Aero 14000 XTB
- £399.99 £289.99
The Power Aero Big Pit reels come in "dark-ish" and "silver-ish" versions. The cosmetically, understated black design with a hint of gun metal is aimed at the carp angler whilst the silver version is aimed more towards surf and beach casters.
Despite looking similar to an XTD, these reels are stacked with technological features like strong cold forged HAGANE Gears and HAGANE Body, X-Ship cranking power, one-piece bail arm, and the new X-Protect seal to prevent the ingress of dirt and water.
These reels are designed and built to last for many years as a true workhorse. The reel has a relatively small body which gives it a more compact feel whilst still maintaining balance and line capacity.
The Parallel Body feature is added to increase casting distance and accuracy by eliminating line slap during the cast. The Parallel Body in combination with the superb line-lay of the Super Slow 5 oscillation system will make sure that you can always cast your baits right where you want them. The new Hi-Speed drag enables you to switch instantly from freespool mode to fight mode by only a very small turn of the drag knob. Whilst the Tackle Labs ICE system will still improve the smoothness of this clutch (due to the low friction start), the speed is now fantastic and they are good to go straight out the box!
Included in the box is a spare spool, set of line reducers and a nice cloth bag.
Make no mistake, This is an incredible casting tool.
