The new Shimano Genpu XT 200PG Baitcaster Reel is developed to take on a wide variety of boat fishing applications such as Engetsu Slider, Wonderfall Jig, BottomShip and Lucanus fishing. The aim was to engineer a powerful baitcaster reel yet still maintain lightness in the hand and the Shimano Genpu XT family covers the brief without fault. The 200PG comes with a power handle and EVA knob for angler comfort.
The Super Free bearing-supported pinion gear system (SF) was designed to eliminate friction on the spool shaft during the cast. In standard baitcasting reels, when the clutch bar is pressed down, the pinion gear is freed and can actually drag on the spool shaft, creating friction and limiting the length of the cast. With SF, the pinion gear is supported by a ball bearing and when the clutch is disengaged the pinion hear and spool shaft are kept in precise alignment. The result is zero friction on the spool shaft for increased freespool.
Shielded Anti-Reverse Bearings
These bearings have been through the same process as the A-RB bearings, but feature shields on both sides of the bearings that reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting the bearings' rotation.
