Very Sorry, but these reels are not available on Interest Free Finance because they are Heavily Discounted

Both carp and surf anglers who are looking for a big pit reel that has sleek looks and a big capacity for work should consider the Shimano Power Aero Reels. It’s packed full of hi-tech features with the high standards of quality you expect from the Power Aero range and Shimano in general.

The Power Aero Big Pit reel is available in a dark / black and silver version, an eye-catching reel for the fanatic carp and surf angler.

Stocked with technological features like strong HAGANE Gear and HAGANE Body, X-Ship, one-piece bail, and the new X-Protect this reel is designed to last for many years like a true workhorse. The reel has a relatively small body which gives the reel a compact feel. 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 system will make sure that you can always cast your baits right there where you want them. The new Hi-Speed drag – which is even faster than Instant Drag – enables you to switch instantly from freespool mode to fight mode by only a very small turn of the drag knob.

Shimano Power Aero XTB / XSB Reel

First off, the HAGANE gear system is found at the heart of this fantastic Shimano reel. This consists of gear components which have been 3D designed and cold-forged without cutting, resulting in a reel that feels like the first time you used it, every time. This smooth, high-tolerance gearing is paired with Shimano X-Ship – a double bearing-supported pinion system which delivers more torque, more power, and yet more smoothness in the retrieve. Twist and rotor reflex are effectively eliminated, allowing the efficient transmission of input power at a ratio of 4.3:1 and with a line retrieve rate of 103cm per turn.

The Power Aero has a HAGANE body made of diecast aluminium. This has high rigidity and superb impact resistance to ensure the absolute minimum of body flexing. Once again, strong design feeds into this big pit reel’s efficiency to make sure your action is converted as well as possible into consistent power cranking. The new Shimano XProtect feature will exclude saltwater and other corroding elements from reaching the mechanism to make sure that the reel continues to perform like new, long into its working life. The handle is machined from a single piece of aluminium for strength, integrity, and low weight.

Shimano’s eye for detail is evident again in the G-Free body design, which provides the kind of weighting and balance that helps to reduce fatigue over long sessions. A new Hi-Speed drag system promises to be even faster than Instant Drag, with instant switching between freespool and fight mode which is achieved by only a small turn on the drag knob.

The power and efficiency of this big pit reel is protected and enhanced by a suite of features, which include an eye-catching parallel body that increases casting distance while eliminating the chance of line slap. Backlash is managed by the over-sized AR-C spool with its v-shaped lip, increasing accuracy and distance by rationing the line off the reel in smaller loops, and eight sets of coated Shimano S A-RB bearings give resistance to corrosion as well as being responsible for a lot the Power Aero XTB’s silky action. The line lay system is 1-speed and comes with Super Slow 5 oscillation in combination with Aero Wrap II, which work together to increase casting distance by organising the line on your reel in tight parallel coils for smooth and reliable casts that fly far and without tangles.

The 14000-size spool itself is cold-forged aluminium, just like the body, and the whole unit weighs in at a portable and elegant 505g. The Shimano Power Aero Reel promises power and efficiency in a versatile piece of gear that could go a long way to help you in your never-ending quest for comfort, accuracy, and power when casting on the beach or stalking carp in tricky environments. This model’s sleek looks are just as at home on inland waters as there are in the surf.
