Model: sar2500fa. a redesigned series introducing shimano’s new xgt7 graphite, the new saros fa reels feature a super strong high tech frame, rotor and sideplate construction providing an exceptionally solid feel. combined with x-ship technology for solid cranking power, the new saros fa reels feature rapid fire drag for easy and accurate adjustments when fighting fish. just realized it’s bigger than you thought? rapid fire drag will help you land it. saros fa - a new standard in spinning reels from shimano. features: new xgt7 graphite frame, sideplate and rotor, 5 s a-rb ball, 1 roller bearing, rapid fire front drag, super stopper ii anti-reverse (uses a one-way bearing that eliminates backplay. this provides the angler with instant hooksetting power. in some reels, the super stopper ii can be turned off to allow backreeling for special techniques and situations), x-aero wrap ii (this two-speed oscillation system layers the line onto the spool in a criss-cross pattern that reduces line-to-line friction for longer casts. aerowrap reels utilize a worm gear design to move the spool upward quickly and downward slowly to wind the line in a precise pattern, reducing friction and giving smoother, longer casting ability). dyna-balance (this feature eliminates wobble during the retrieve by counter balancing the rotor to enhance sensitivity and smoothness. by using computer balancing, an approach similar to car tire balancing, we are able to redistribute the rotor weight to create smooth rotation and eliminate vibrations caused by the reel). fluidrive ii (building upon the successes of fluidrive, which provides extremely tight tolerances and control in the cutting process, fluidrive ii polishes the gear surface to maximize tooth contact. this increases the efficiency of the retrieve for more power with less effort). s-concept (smooth, silent and strong). sr-concept (combines the new concept of reliance with all aspects of the s-concept: smooth, silent and strong. the reliance concept, or r-concept, means that dreams in reel design are now evolving into reality). x-ship (anglers will experience increased gearing efficiency and power, providing for ultra-light handle rotation. by using a large diameter drive gear, moving the pinion gear closer to the center of the drive gear to provide 20 percent more power, and by supporting the pinion gear with two a-rb ball bearings, x-ship provides a smooth, effortless retrieve, and also virtually eliminates the pinion gear twist and rotor flex common with most spinning reels). propulsion line management system (is the new propulsion spool lip design. through tens of thousands of casting tests and computer simulations it has been determined that this new spool lip design provides longer casting distances than a standard spool lip design while preventing backlashes and wind knots from forming. it also allows the line to flow off of the spool in smaller loops during the cast which means less slap on the stripper guide. this means longer casts with less friction. the propulsion spool also utilizes a long stroke design to further enhance the casting distance. furthermore, there is less bouncing of the line on the spool lip like on a standard spinning spool. because of the unique shape of the propulsion spool, the line flows consistently off of the spool. so, with a standard spool, friction alternates from heavy to light as the line slaps the spool lip. this causes backlash and inconsistent line speeds. the propulsion spool lip provides consistently light friction to overcome these situations.) paladin gear durability enhancement spinning (using a special cold forged aluminum drive gear and a hardened brass pinion gear, reels will retain their out-of-the-box smoothness much longer than before. in fact, testing has shown that this combination of metals is more durable than an all-stainless steel drivetrain while maintaining the smoothness). cold forged aluminum spool, paddle grip handle. max drag 11 lb, right/left hand retrieve, 6.0:1 gear ratio (34in. line retrieve per crank). mono line capacity 6#/200 yds, 8#/140 yds, 10#/120 yds. weighs 9.3 ounces.
