Product Description


Shimano Aerlex XTB Reel

If you’re an angler who wants to be able to cast out to huge distances with confidence, whether you’re casting your spod or your rig, then you need look no further. The Aerlex XTB has been designed with this purpose in mind, offering you big pit carp fishing potential in a high performance package which doesn’t break the bank. This is the ideal distance casting big pit for novice and experienced carp anglers alike and it joins the ranks of Shimano’s finest carp fishing reels.

There are two models in the Shimano Aerlex XTB. The first of the reels available is the classic XTB 10,000 big pit. This is a traditional big pit reel in the truest sense of the word, offering you a huge line capacity for fantastic distance casts and this is the perfect reel option for the dedicated angler who likes to try their hand on the UK’s largest venues – as well as a whole host of European outings. The next model in the range is the XTB 10,000 Spod. This is a vital addition to the distance casting carp angler’s arsenal as, for the first time, you’re able to match your rig casts with your freebie cast. After all, what is the point in investing in a big pit reel to cast huge distances in you’re always restricted by the distances that you can get your freebie carp bait out to? With the combination of the XTB 10,000 and the XTB 10,000 Spod, you’re able to target huge carp that are hiding at the far extremes of your casting range with confidence.

This is a tough performing reel which has been manufactured from Shimano’s very own XT7 carbon. This is Shimano’s go-to construction material when it wants to create a reel which is lightweight, robust, and reliable. This isn’t the only piece of classic Shimano technology put to superb use on this reel, however, and it is packed out with features that you’d usually associate with reels at double the price point. One such feature is the reel’s instant drag. This has been designed to withstand the heaviest duty of work and it is the perfect option for the angler who wants to go hard when carp fishing. This instant drag also ensures that this reel is the ideal option for all your rough ground surf fishing – after all, big pit reels have their roots in the sea fishing industry and this reel harks back to those origins with its fast acting fight.

The line lay on this reel is exceptional and it more than meets Shimano’s exacting standards. This line lay is a result of a combination of Aero Wrap II technology and Two Speed Oscillation. Fed by the Power Roller system, Aero Wrap II ensures that each line is wrapped around the spool parallel to one another. This, in turn, allows line to exit the spool more smoothly, giving you those vital extra inches on each cast. Two Speed Oscillation is Shimano’s unique rotor system which brings the spool quickly forwards and then slowly back. This means that the wraps of line have minimum interaction with one-another, further improving your casting performance for those classic distance hits.

The XTB 10,000 has an exceptionally high torque ratio of 4.6:1. This allows you to pull in 100cm of line, even over rough ground conditions. The XTB 10,000 Spod boasts an even high ratio, offering 5.3:1 gearing which allows the reel to retrieve 115cm of line which each rotation. This ensures that you can bring in your spod as quickly as you like, causing minimum disturbance to the water and ensuring that you can maximise the amount of time you spend with your rods out over the water. Whether you’re looking to target huge carp on the continent, you want to get large spod out to impressive distances, or you’re surf fishing over rough ground, the Shimano Aerlex XTB and XTB Spod are the perfect reels for your needs.
