Overhead reels

Whether it’s distance casting capability, line capacity, retrieve speed or just all-round versatility, Shimano have an overhead reel to cover any offshore fishing situation, from inshore snapper fishing to light game.

When fishing at anchor, one of many advantages of an overhead reel is to allow a fish to run with the bait and get it down before striking, but the same reel could also be used for trolling to and from the grounds with lures or baits, throwing Raider jigs into washes around a bommie, even a spot of jigging if other species like kingfish begin to mark on the sounder screen.

Many of Shimano’s bluewater overheads are designed to fish incredible drag settings, in many cases way beyond what their diminutive size might suggest they are capable of. This makes them useful for heavy braid use, but still have the range for lighter mono if you prefer.

So, from the highly credentialed star drag Trinidad, to that ever-reliable workhorse the Charter Special, there’s a Shimano overhead to fulfil just about every fishing requirement.

Short stroke Servo-Wave mechanism has less free-stroke and 25% greater lever input to suit more aggressive riding.
