Dominate Offshore Predators with the New Shimano TwinPower SW


Hooked offshore predators test an angler’s tackle in ways that no other fish can, searching for any weakness to evade capture. This is a test that both anglers and tackle must pass.

Enter the new Shimano TwinPower SW: A spinning reel reengineered in 2021 with singularity of vision and purpose – a reel that will connect the angler with success whether chasing wahoo or tuna, grouper or snapper. Designed with an eye toward strength and durability, the new TwinPower SW dominates the offshore realm.

Central to the performance of the TwinPower SW is Shimano’s exclusive Infinity Drive technology, engineered with a new main-shaft supporting structure that eliminates friction within the pinion gear for smoother and more powerful winding – dramatically benefiting anglers during gut-wrenching battles. Most importantly, Shimano’s Infinity Drive delivers increased cranking power under load when a stubborn game fish refuses to forfeit ground, giving anglers more control over supersized reef species and pelagics alike.

When a large offshore fish plunges into a drag-peeling run, a dangerous amount of heat is generated within the reel, reducing drag performance and potentially weakening the line. The 10000 and 14000-series TwinPower SW models offer Shimano’s Heatsink Drag: the ultimate run-stopper and insurance policy against failure. Supporting overwhelming drag performance, the Heatsink Drag system rapidly dissipates thermal energy away from the reel, reducing any drop in drag force due to heat buildup. The Heatsink Drag also insulates against heat flow to the line, reducing spool line temperatures by as much as 30% and guarding against line failure during blistering runs and long fights.

Shimano’s HAGANE Gear lies at the heart of the new TwinPower SW, delivering smooth performance and legendary durability through the union of strength and power. The HAGANE Body encapsulates the TwinPower SW within an aluminum frame for extreme rigidity and impact resistance, efficiently transforming every turn of the handle into cranking power. With reel construction fortified by the HAGANE Gear and aluminum HAGANE Body, anglers are in line to dominate battle after battle.

Shimano engineered the new TwinPower SW for the long haul, featuring water and corrosion resistance delivered by the Shimano X-Protect system. By combining water-repellent coatings with a water-channeling, labyrinth construction, Shimano’s X-Protect technology shrugs off the elements without sacrificing reel performance, ensuring years of durability.

A library of fish-dominating features and six different reel sizes — ranging from 4000 to 14000-size — make the new TwinPower SW lineup the perfect choice for every offshore adventure. If bull reds and stripers are on the agenda, grab the TPSW4000XGC which features a 6.2:1 gear ratio that recovers 37 inches of line with every revolution, accommodates up to 180 yards of 30-pound test PowerPro and is fortified with a sporty 24 pounds of drag. When the big dogs are itching for a fight, the TPSW14000XGC answers the bell with room for 240 yards of 80-pound test PowerPro, and delivers 55 pounds of unbridled fish-stopping power while providing anglers the added assurance of Heatsink Drag. The new TwinPower SW will be available in Spring from your favorite retailer with MSRP $479.99 to $639.99. Until then, learn more about TwinPower SW by visiting fish.shimano.com/twinpowersw.
