The new Twin Power XD has been redesigned and refined to set a new standard in saltwater durability.
Made in Japan and suited to inshore light jigging and lure casting. The Micro Module Gear II and Silent Drive makes the gearing extremely silent and smooth. The main Hagane Gear provides strong cranking power and X-Protects provides superior saltwater resistance. The redesigned Long Stroke Spool provides improved casting distance and the new MGL Rotor delivers ultra-light friction free rotation.
Ci4+ carbon reduces weight by 35 to 55 grams when compared to the original Twin Power XD from 2017 and the aluminum Hagane Body provides rigidity. Featuring a Cross Carbon Drag system that outputs up to 11kg and all models are fitted with upgraded power handle knobs.
Available in stores in early 2021. RRP from $769.00
Twin Power C3000 HGA
Versatile High Gear Model
The high gear ratio means that this reel is perfect for a whole range of fishing situations in both salt and fresh water. With a ratio of 6.0:1, 9kg of drag, 10+1 bearings and weighing 200g, it's light, tough and durable.
Recommended line: 10lb Power Pro Braid
Twin Power 4000 XGA
Inshore and Offshore High-Speed Model
Another highly versatile model that can be used for both inshore and offshore fishing. With a ratio of 6.2:1, 11kg of drag, 10=1 bearings and a massive retrieve of 101cm per crank, it's perfect for those looking to work lures fast for hard fighting fish.
Recommended line: 15lb Power Pro Braid
Twin Power C5000 XGA
Inshore and Offshore High-Speed Model
The Twin Power C5000XGA has the same size body as the 4000XGA but runs a deeper spool for larger line capacity. It runs the same 6.2:1 ratio and 11kg of drag but will hold more line for those big fights. It's perfect for use offshore and from the land chasing those species that love a fast retrieve.
Recommended line: 20lb Power Pro Braid
MGL ROTOR FOR FAST ROTATION
The new Twin Power XD features the redesigned Magnumlite Rotor that delivers ultra light, almost friction free rotation, enabling you to control the retrieve with ultimate precision and sensitivity.
Lures become even more animated when using the MGL Rotor, and the ultra light experience lets you feel every movement of the lure, the bottom and ultimately the strike of the fish, no matter the size.
LIGHT AND SMOOTH REELING
The surfaces of the drive gear and pinion gear have been analysed and updated from the ground up in pursuit of perfection.
Starting from an already industry leading standard, reduced reel noise and even smoother gear feeling has been achieved.
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.
