Product Description


Shimano Aerlex XTA and XTA Spod Reels,

Shimano has almost 50 years of reel production under its belt, and with almost a century of cycle gear experience before that they can be considered experts in all things that rotate. The Aerlex XT-A series is the culmination of all that experience, and represents the cutting edge of mid-priced reel development.

Finished in charcoal grey, with gun-smoke grey and silver highlights, this reel is understated and stylish. It performs just as exceptionally as it looks. Featuring the world class, and world famous, Baitrunner spool system as standard, the Aerlex XTA series has been completely overhauled and redesigned to create the best reel in the business. The Aerlex XTA is available in both 8000 and 7000 (spod) sizes.

Shimano believes that the Aerlex XTA 8000 offers a superb compromise between the casting performance of a big-pit and the balance of a traditional spool, so is perfect for those anglers who want big casts with exceptional control. Designed to work equally well with a traditional 12ft, 2.5lb, carp rod and a 13ft, 3.5lb, distance rod, the Aerlex XTA provides the ultimate in reel versatility.

The Aerlex XT-A 7000 represents Shimano’s arrival into the world of spod, and this reel is the first dedicated spod reel that Shimano has produced. Shimano understands that spodding is a demanding technique and wanted to produce a reel that more than matched that. With three line clips, the Aerlex XTA spod reel allows anglers to confidently and accurately calibrate multiple targets – a revelation in terms of spod reel design.

With a ratio of 5.3:1, this reel enables a very quick retrieve which is essential when spodding. The Baitrunner spool ensures this reel is suited for a super fast drag adjustment and for peeling off the line when you’re depth finding.
If you’re looking for a world class reel at an exceptional price, the Aerlex XTA is a perfect choice.
