NEW 2020 Shimano Saragosa SWA
The Saragosa SW has built an incredible reputation and the newly released 2020 model takes it to the next level. Packed with upgrades to deliver great cranking power and unmatched durability, no other reel compares at this price point.
The Saragosa SWA series features 8 models with the 14000XG and 18000HG being new additions for 2020. The new range incorporates top tier Shimano technologies such as X-Protect, X-Ship, Hagane Body and Hagane gear into its lightweight compact body. The newly designed compact body has been engineered to reduce the weight across the entire series, improving the reels handling and balance.
Drawing upon the Stella SWC, Infinity Drive is included and provides improved pinion gear support which translates to greater and smoother cranking power. The X-Protect water resistance system improves the line roller durability to an IPX8 standard, and the super strong Cross Carbon Drag system keeps the fight in your favour. Built for big fish in extreme conditions, the Saragosa SWA will continue to push the boundaries.
The new Saragosa SW employs 'Infinity Drive’ where the pinion gear inner does not make contact with the main shaft, as a high-sliding bushing supports the main shaft. The system features originally in the Stella SWC, and significantly
improves cranking power.
The Hagane Gear is produced by applying approximately 200 tons of pressure to the raw metal through unique technology called Precision Cold Forging. Hard and tough, the Hagane Gear has high durability and delivers smooth winding.
X-Protect is a water-resistant technology that combines water repellent treatments and a labyrinth type structure to suppress the entry of water. The line roller assembly is now 10X more durable with this system in place.
The Hagane Body chassis is made of highly rigid aluminium alloy. It eliminates flex, warp and distortion of the reel, and protects the engagement of gears inside. This allows for smoother winding.
CROSS CARBON DRAG
Saragosa SWA also houses Shimano’s super strong and reliable Cross Carbon Drag system that has proven itself against some of the biggest, meanest fish on the planet.
