VERSATILE AS IT IS POWERFUL
With features outperforming its class, the Shimano Sahara lineup is versatile and made for use in different situations! The AR-C spool not only aids in reducing line troubles but also helps in further casting distances. The screw-in handle complemented with the reel's Silent Drive technology gives the angler a sturdy yet smooth reel for a comfortable cranking experience during fights with fish. This is crucial for lure fishing because if there is looseness or play when retrieving lures, you will not be able to accurately grasp the situation underwater.
G-Free Body technology has been developed to shift the reel’s centre of gravity closer to the rod. By moving the centre of gravity closer to the angler’s hand, the G-Free Body helps reduce fatigue and enhance casting comfort.
With amazing strength and durability, the HAGANE Gear is at the very heart of most Shimano reels. Shimano, through the application of state-of-the-art technologies, gives anglers the long-lasting smoothness and pleasure that is felt when anglers first use a reel, over and over again. No cutting work is applied to the teeth of the drive gear during fabrication, instead, the entire surface is calculated in minute detail by special 3D design and then formed by Shimano’s cold forging technology. The result is assured resilience. HAGANE Gear is the fruit of Shimano’s inexhaustible pursuit for durability - the strength and power of forged metal continue to represent the fundamental concept of Shimano reels.
Propulsion Line Management System
The most obvious component of the Propulsion Line Management System is the new Propulsion Spool Lip design. Through tens of thousands of casting tests and computer simulations, Shimano’s new spool lip design provides longer casting distances than a standard spool lip design while also preventing backlashes and wind knots from forming.
SilentDrive Technology benefits from a total redesign of all functional parts focused on the drive gear, worm shaft and other parts. The goal: remove unnecessary noise and vibration. In doing so, the overall tolerances are improved to a micron level, ultimately creating an overall quieter and smoother reel operation.
X-Ship provides improved gear durability. Supporting the pinion gear maintains precise alignment with the drive gear. This allows the gears to stay in the same position under the heaviest loads. The added benefit of X-Ship technology is that friction between the spool shaft and gear is eliminated. These further benefit anglers with enhanced casting performance and casting distance of lighter lures.
