Welcome to the best of both worlds; the reels feature a large AR-C spool with slow oscillation in combination with the Aero Wrap II line lay system. This ensures perfect performance and maximum distance casting, enhancing the casting performance of any angler. Featuring as standard on both is the X-Ship system, which provides a smooth power transfer and stability of the gears thanks to the two-point support of the pinion gear by ball bearings encased in the stunningly sleek, sexy, matt-black body with its understated cosmetics. Providing maximum winding power even when under pressure, all four ball bearings are shielded A-RB for increased durability.

As if that wasn’t enough, the gears have been redesigned to minimise friction and increase power transfer from the long aluminum handle to the rotor. This delivers more torque and winding power, making fish playing easier and delivering more control. The big size, weighing 720g and a having a line capacity of 550 metres of 0.35mm line, is capable of casting some serious distance.

The smaller, medium version XT-B LC is the ideal choice for medium waters where casting isn’t the most important requirement. Boasting the same great features, design and materials but smaller, the guys at Shimano have pulled out all the stops. Could you imagine sitting behind a set of these, alarms, bobbins and the matt black finish of the Baitrunners? Now that’s one tidy setup right there!
