In Shimano’s pursuit of the ultimate in durability and performance, the Twin Power XD has been born and set a new benchmark for saltwater spinning reels. Featuring the battle tested cold forged Hagane Gear, X-Ship and Magnum Light Rotor. To oppose unwanted saltwater intrusion, X Protect provides the Twin Power XD with Shimano’s highest degree of protection. Developed specially for the XD series, X Protect leverages a waterproof labyrinth structure that blocks any internal saltwater entry. Three models with 9 SA-RB bearings and 1 roller bearing will feature in the Australian market, including a compact 3000 and 5000 size, alongside a standard 4000 size. Finished with a metallic blue base with silver and gold highlights, the Twin Power XD stays true its premium pedigree.
