Metal rotor x HAGANE body.
The TwinPower has been one of the top selections in Shimano's line-up for the past 30 years.
The latest rendition is equipped with a metal rotor that suppresses deflection, distortion, and torsion, bringing together the philosophy of quality and solidity that has been pursued for many years. Combined with the HAGANE body, it achieves superior rigidity and durability. Furthermore, the rigid metal rotor produces a stable winding feel reminiscent of the Stella, and also allows for perpetually smooth reeling. In addition, the new Long Stroke Spool has improved casting performance.
HAGANE is a Shimano reel design concept created to withstand continual use and extreme abuse. HAGANE is an innovation with built-in toughness and durability that works alongside Shimano's precision engineering. HAGANE is for all anglers.
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 enjoyment 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 a special 3D design and then formed by Shimano's cold-forging technology. The result is assured resilience. HAGANE Gear is the result of Shimano's endless pursuit for durability — this strength and power of forged metal continue to represent the fundamental concept of Shimano reels.
