Shimano Sea Reels
All angling presents some form of challenge for tackle designers and manufacturers and this cannot be truer of saltwater fishing. Among its unique set of challenges, the most difficult to overcome must be the highly corrosive nature of saltwater itself. Maintaining all the high performance features that anglers expect from a Shimano reel whilst simultaneously creating a reel that can stand up to the distinctive wear-and-tear that sea fishing causes was a task that the company were proud to square up to. All the reels you see on this page have far surpassed the expectations of the Shimano design team as well as our own dedicated team of anglers, both in terms of performance and durability.
