The Shimano Saragosa SW A Spinning Reel continues to dominate the saltwater fishing world. With its advanced features and innovative technology, this reel raises the bar for large saltwater spinners.
In 2013, the Saragosa SW set a new standard for heavy-duty saltwater spinning reels. It introduced features like X-Ship, waterproof seals, and a twin drag system. Now, in 2020, the Saragosa SW A takes it to the next level with the addition of Infinity Drive Technology. This technology, taken from Shimano's top-of-the-line Stella SW C, significantly increases winding torque and provides an incredibly smooth and light rotation under heavy loads. This gives anglers the ultimate edge in fighting powerful game fish.
The Saragosa SW A is built around the battle-tested HAGANE Body, which maintains rigidity under heavy loads to keep all internal components and gears in precise alignment. This maximizes power output and extends the life of the reel. The cold forged HAGANE gears provide exceptional smoothness and effortless operation that anglers expect from Shimano reels.
The Saragosa SW A is also equipped with multiple features to prevent water intrusion. It has a waterproof Cross Carbon drag, an IPX8-rated waterproof body, and X-Protect water repellent coating. This reel can handle splashes or accidental submersion without skipping a beat.
