The new Shimano Aero concept harnesses the power of Shimano’s strong engineering background and Japanese roots to make a unique statement in high performance reel design.
The three reels introduced under the Aero Concept have been designed for specifi c uses; Match, Feeder and Spinning.
The Match and Feeder versions have been developed specifi cally for the UK match angler, taking into consideration the requirements of modern match fi shing.
The large diameter spool makes casting easier with the stronger line now being used on commercial fi sheries and the front drags deliver smooth, confi dence building performance when playing fish.
All Aero reels have Shimano X-ship engineering which provides smooth and effi cient power transfer from the handle to the rotor, even when placed under excessive stress.
The Aero Spinning version is equipped with a relatively slow 4.8:1 gear ratio
which delivers a more controllable performance when working all types of lure and increased torque and power when playing hard fi ghting predators.
Finished in metallic silver, the Aero Spin features both Aero Wrap II and an oversized AR-C spool which combine to deliver outstanding casting performance, even with lightweight lures.
The Aero Spinning comes with two diff erent sized line reducers enabling spool capacity to be changed to suit personal preference – perfect for anglers who swap between braid and mono reel lines.
