Tekota's legacy of durability continues with the fully redesigned Shimano Tekota 500 A-HG Baitcast Reel. Vast improvements have been made, including Coreprotect water resistance to increase corrosion resistance, an easy to replace anti-fogging lens (LC models), a loud clicker and a new ergonomic S-Compact body design.
The Hagane Body is a metal reel body with high rigidity. The body stiffness and impact resistance virtually eliminate body flexing. The result transforms your actions directly into cranking power. It's efficiency through strength.
These bearings have been through the same process as our A-RB bearings, but feature shields on both sides of the bearings that reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting the bearing's rotation.
Total protection. The concept of CoreProtect is simple - to provide water resistance without creating a heavy rotation feeling. There are three key areas of the reel that require protection: the roller clutch, body, and line roller.
