Ideal for the big pit reel fan, the Aero Technium MgS is the flagship model of the big pit range. The Shimano reel sports a unique design with the very best components from Shimano’s technology. The XSC reel weighs only 485g thanks to lightweight materials used for construction. Made from a magnesium body and lightweight aluminium, the lightness assists in transportation and an aching wrist at the end of the day.
The lightweight of the reel does not at all weaken the strength or durability of the reel as the Hagane body of the reel is made for ultimate protection and rigidity. The body is also paired with Hagane gearing which is cold forged for ultimate gear strength and longevity, no matter what the elements through at you. To fully protect your reel, Shimano has give the Aero Technium XSC a X-Protect water and dust coating.
The Super Slow 10 oscillation system from Shimano provides the perfect parallel Aerowrap II + 1-Speed line-lay, assisting with those bold casts and retrievals, resulting in the best casting distance and precision possible.
This system is paired with 8+1 Bearings and a very strong titanium one-piece bail, ensuring strength when on the waters.
If that was not enough, the reel is finished off with a unique pearl effect which anglers cannot resist!
