Designed to challenge the impossible, the new 2021 TwinPower SW is stronger and more durable than ever.
Infinity Drive reduces handle rotation torque by 30% when compared to the previous series, this is achieved by increasing the pinion gear support and a applying special skid coating which makes the reel lighter to turn and more powerful.
To improve drag performance, the Heat Sink Drag system features in the 10000 and 14000 sizes to reduce the amount of heat transferred to the drag washers and line during the fight via the spools insulated plate.
With superior saltwater durability being a must, the X-Protect seal and labyrinth structure has been employed to repel water intrusion. By including this in the line roller and clutch assembly, the mechanism is ten times more durable.
The new striking silver and blue cosmetics have been paired up with a polished metal handle and power knob to finish the reel off superbly. Engineered and made in Japan to the highest standard for the world’s hardest fighting saltwater species, the TwinPower SW will push new angling limits. Available in stores in early 2021. RRP: $899.00
Twin Power 4000 XG
Light Jigging and Casting
The specs of the 4000XG set it apart from the more general-purpose 4000 sized reels. Being an XG reel with a ratio of 6.2:1, 11kg of drag, and a retrieve of 101cm per crank, the Twin Power SW is made for light jigging and casting where fast winding and big line retrieve is needed. Weighing 350g with 9+1 bearings, it's built tough.
Recommended line: PE 1.2 - 2
Twin Power 5000 XG
Inshore and Offshore High-Speed Model
Bigger and better than other 5000 sized reels on the market, the 5000XG runs a ratio of 6.2:1, 13kg of drag, and a retrieve of 105cm per crank. Weighing 415g with 10+1 bearings, it's perfect for heavy inshore and general offshore use.
Recommended line: PE2 - 3
Twin Power 6000 XG
Offshore and Landbased Game High-Speed Model
The Twin Power 6000XG has the same size body as the 5000XG but runs a deeper spool for larger line capacity. It runs the same 6.2:1 ratio and 13kg of drag but retrieves 112cm of line per crank. Weighing 420g with 10+1 bearings, it's perfect for use offshore and from the land chasing those species that love a fast retrieve.
Recommended line: PE2 - 4
Twin Power 8000 HG
Powerful High Gear Model
The Twin Power 8000HG is specifically built for all styles. Being lighter and stronger, at 615g, with a 5.6:1 gear ratio, 25kg of drag and a line retrieve of 94cm per crank, you'll fight with more confidence in those dicey areas. With 10+1 bearings, it'll run smoothly and make your fishing sessions much easier.
Recommended line: PE3 - 5
Twin Power 10000 PG
Game and Deep Jigging Model
Similar to the 8000PG, the 10000PG is perfect for deep water jigging, but also light game fishing. Also running a gear ratio of 4.9:1, 25kg of drag and a line retrieve of 102cm per crank, this reel is made for jigging. What sets it apart from the 8000PG is the Heatsink Drag which reduces drag heat transfer to the spool and gives consistent drag across the whole fight meaning you can handle those biggest fish with ease.
Recommended line: PE4 - 8
Twin Power 14000 HG
Big Game Casting Model
If you're throwing big lures at big fish, the Twin Power SW 14000HG is for you. With a 6.2:1 gear ratio, 25kg of drag, 10+1 bearings, and 134cm of line retrieve per crank, it'll handle those hard fighting fish with ease. On top of all that, the 14000 also features Heatsink Drag and Infinity Drive.
Recommended line: PE4 - 8
LIGHT AND POWERFUL WINDING
The new Twin Power SW employs 'Infinity Drive’ where the pinion gear inner does not make contact with the main shaft, as a high-sliding bushing supports the main shaft. With this new structure, sliding resistance of the main shaft is drastically reduced.
In addition to this, a special skidding coating on the main shaft helps to further reduce sliding resistance. InfinityDrive cuts handle rotation torque by about 30 per cent in comparison to the conventional system, and makes the reel more powerful.
UPGRADED DRAG WITH HEAT RESISTANCE
The ‘Heat Sink Panel’, where the heat generated by drag is released, stops any decrease in drag performance, due to thermal sagging, by around 50 per cent.
The ‘Insulation Sheet’, which blocks heat transfer to the spool, prevents spool temperatures from increasing by around 30 per cent. The evolution of the new drag system is easier on the line and more stable than ever. Featured in models 10000 to 14000.
IPX8 WATER RESISTANT PERFORMANCE
X-Protect was developed for stopper bearing protection in the previous model and provided high-level waterproofing. The new Twin Power SW employs X-Protect for its line roller as well and further improves its waterproofing performance.
The new structure protects bearings inside the line roller from the harsh saltwater environment, and bearing durability is ten times greater than conventional designs. As a result of comparison tests by Shimano.
PRECISION COLD-FORGED FOR STRENGTH
The Hagane Gear is produced by applying approximately 200 tons of pressure to the raw metal through unique technology called Precision Cold Forging.
Delivered with micron accuracy, no cutting work is involved. Hard and tough, the Hagane Gear has high durability and delivers smooth winding.
RIGID ALUMINIUM BODY FOR PROTECTION
The Hagane Body chassis is made of highly rigid aluminium alloy. It eliminates flex, warp and distortion of the reel, and protects the engagement of gears inside. This allows for smoother winding.
SILKY SMOOTH WINDING PERFORMANCE
From the basic body design through to the most intricate parts of the drive train including the drive gear, worm shaft, worm shaft pin and worm shaft gear, every piece has been carefully reviewed.
Consequently, the smallest clearance gaps and wobbles have been eliminated to the highest tolerances. As a result, a new generation of silky smooth winding performance and pristine silence has been achieved.
SUPPORTED PINION GEAR
In addition to an enlarged drive gear, optimum positioning of the pinion and drive gears, and two-point support of the pinion gear whose ends are supported by bearings, all these mechanisms deliver robust gear engagement.
The X-Ship system permits smooth winding, even under heavy loads.
ABSOLUTELY STABLE LINE RELEASE
X-TOUGH DRAG | RIGID SUPPORT DRAG
X-Tough Drag: Each drag washer is composed of metal or carbon, which have high resistance to friction. Supporting the spool from both the top and bottom means highly durable and stable drag performance.
Rigid Support Drag: Supporting the spool at two-points of the main shaft and bearing inside the spool eliminates spool wobble and delivers stable, smooth drag function.
