Product Info for SHIMANO Sahara Front Drag 5.0:1 Spinning Fishing Reel (SH2500FI)The Sahara is a powerful spinning reel with unparalleled durability at its price point. Incorporating X-Ship and HGN Gearing in its G-Free Body, and available in sizes from 2000 through 5000, it offers performance and value that will appeal to novice and experienced anglers alike. Proven technology includes Shimano's X-Ship pinion gear support system that ensures effortless handle rotation even under load, efficient G-Free Body design, and premium Hagane cold-forged gearing for superior cranking power and long-lasting smooth winding. Graphite frame, rotor, and sideplate; rock-solid 5-bearing (4+1) system. The ideal reel for anglers of all skill levels.
X-Ship provides improved gear durability. Supported on both ends with bearings, the pinion gear maintains precise alignment with the drive gear. This means the gears will stay in the same position under the heaviest loads. The added benefit is that friction between the spool shaft and gear are eliminated. This will enhance the casting performance, especially with lighter lure, and allow for longer casts. .
G Free Body
Developed to shift the reel’s centre of gravity closer to the rod. This has been achieved by moving the worm shaft oscillation mechanism 19mm from the bottom of the reel to the top. By moving the centre of gravity closer to the anglers hand position, the G Free Body helps to reduce fatigue and enhance casting comfort.
With amazing strength and durability, the HAGANE Gear is at the very heart of the reel. Shimano, through the application of state-of-the-art technologies, gives you the long-lasting smoothness and pleasure that you feel when you first use a reel, over and over again. No cutting work is applied to the teeth of the drive gear. Instead the entire surface is calculated in minute detail by special 3D design and then formed by Shimano’s cold forging technology. The result is assured resilience. It’s the fruit of Shimano’s inexhaustible pursuit for durability; the strength and power of forged metal continues to represent the fundamental concept of Shimano reels.
