The bull under the reels - power without end - cheque it out - now:in our Fishernator Shop! NEW FOR 2012!!! For saltwater fishing, having the correct reel or rod can make the difference in capturing fish. The Shimano Biomaster SW has been desinged specifically for heavier saltwater use which means that it is not going to let you down when hooked up to a larger offshore species. The use of braided lines for offshore fishing has led to a re-assessment of what constitutes a bluewater reel. As it is finer than equivalent breaking strain monofilament, you can get more braid onto a spool, so smaller reels that are easier to hand-hold for long periods are definitely the go these days. While Shimano&rsquo - s new Biomaster SW 6000HG and 8000PG threadlines aren&rsquo - t that big in overall size, they are certainly big in bluewater performance. The SW letters in the Biomaster name stand for salt water, while HG is for high gear and PG is for power gear. Make no mistake, these are tough, rugged reels intended for use on some seriously big fish. Hybrid bodies and aluminium rotors with EI surface treatment keep corrosion at bay and the weight down without compromising strength, and high durability HD gearing is designed to handle maxed-out drag settings and stubborn fish. The presence of six S-ARB and an infinite anti-reverse bearing means both reels are super smooth to wind, even under pressure.
