The superlight magnesium G Free-Spool III extends your casts to unheard-of distances—even with lighter lures—and the cast is managed perfectly by the SVS Infinity braking system. The adjustment dial for the braking system is located on the front bottom of the reel's left sideplate for easier one handed adjustment while engaged in battle. The Escape Hatch release allows you to access the interior of the sideplate for cleaning and adjustments.
Micro Module gearing utilizes a larger number of smaller, finer cogs, precisely machined to provide a buttery smoothness that almost seems organic rather than mechanical—combined with Shimano's proven X-Ship system, it's the smoothest, most stable baitcaster ever. The Super MG machined magnesium frame is flanked by aluminum sideplates, and the forged aluminum handle is finished with Septon grips. There are 10 Shielded S A-RB bearings and a roller bearing inside, plus cross carbon drag washers that impart a smooth and consistent power on hard-fighting fish. For freshwater use only.
