Shimano’ Stress Free System comprises a whole package of innovative features which, if taken individually are mighty impressive. The Shimano’ Stress Free System comprises a whole package of innovative features which, if taken individually are mighty impressive.

Together, working as a team, they are stunning, adding new dimensions to the performance of what were already some of the finest fish’ reels in the world.

So how do they benefit you, the angler? Quite simply they make the reel incredibly smooth, more balanced, more durable and more efficient. In short, they do the work, while you do the fishing. A single Shimano roller bearing equates to three or 4 ball race bearings.

ROLLER BEARING

A single Shimano roller bearing equates to three or 4 ball race bearings, leaving it ahead over standard ball race bearings fitted to normal reels.  Once again, efficiency is maximised and a longer life expectancy comes as standard.

High Efficiency Gear is at the heart of the Stress free range, providing a much higher work for less effort B.

HIGH EFFICIENCY GEAR

With the Increase in efficiency of tip to 20%, the High Efficiency Gear is at the heart of the Stress free range, providing a much higher work for less effort with a super-smooth operating action and minimal wear.

BUILT IN ROTOR      

All of the bail arm mechanism is housed internally in the rotor arms giving a great sat nav unit protection and added strength with a major reduction in flex when playing fish under pressure.

It’s unique self balancing design gives silky smooth performance and eliminates  wobble.

POSITIVE BAIL

Any Bail arm that throws shut whilst a cast is being made can be a hazard. Not only can it be dangerous when extreme casting but also line breakage is environmentally unacceptable. However, this ingenious design feature eliminates any risk of this happening.

The Bail arm only closes when it’s supposed to.  The Titanium Power Roller is subjected to great pressure as it converts the line through 90 degrees in one fell swoop, and nylon monofilament and braid under tension is fierce and uncompromising even without a fish on.E.TITANIUM POWER ROLLER’ (TPR)

Small in stature compared to the rest of the main reel, this is a giant of a component.  The Titanium Power Roller is subjected to great pressure as it converts the line through 90 degrees in one fell swoop, and nylon monofilament and braid under tension is fierce and uncompromising even without a fish on.

The TPR has to continually contend with extreme friction and does so effortlessly. The TPR’s response to it’s aggressor to reduce line twist by as much as 50%, without deteriorating the mainline or weakening the breaking strain.

It really is one of the most unusual sensations, so unerringly positive but the practical benefits of SBL are the possibility of micro increment settings of quiver tips or specialist bite indicators.F. SHIMANO’ SUPER BALANCE LOCK

This revolutionary feature has made people marvel when they first experience SBL, because when the reel is set in anti reverse mode there is zero free-play on the handle. It really is one of the most unusual sensations, so unerringly positive but the practical benefits of SBL are the possibility of micro increment settings of quiver tips or specialist bite indicators.

In addition the lack of backlash on the handle mean the drag or clutch kicks in instantly, ensuring faser hook setting with an improved catch rate.

AERO WRAP

Superb line lay has become a hallmark of ‘Shimano’ reels.  Fed by Power Roller , the Aero system lays line in close, parallel coils (aero wrap), so that it builds on the spool evenly and leaves the spool cleanly with minimum of friction. longer, more accurate casts are the result.
