The lightweight Shimano Torium 16PG Overhead Reel is a solidly-built star-drag saltwater reel perfect for live bait or bottom-fishing applications. It's packed with features like Super Stopper, Cross Carbon Drag, Anti Rust Bearings and High Efficiency Gearing.
The incorporation of Hagane Body provides this reel with a rigid yet highly durable outer shell that is free from body flexing, this transforms the angler's actions directly into cranking power when under load.
These stainless steel ball bearings are specially treated to drastically increase the corrosion resistance of the bearing. These bearings will last at least 10 times longer than standard stainless steel ball bearings in high salinity environments.
Super Stopper anti-reverse uses a one-way stainless steel roller bearing that eliminates back-play. This provides the angler with instant hook-setting power.
CF Aluminium Cold Forge Spool
These spools provide increased strength and durability over diecast aluminium or graphite spools.
HEG consists of not only the gears, but also the frame, setplate, and handle-side sideplate. First we increased the size of the drive gear and the pinion gear to offer increased leverage and power. By using a one-piece frame that incorporates the setplate and adding a one-piece stamped sideplate, it eliminates the flex in the drive train that causes gears to bind under pressure.
