2021 Shimano Twinpower XD

$769.00
By Shimano

The new Twin Power XD has been redesigned and refined to set a new standard in saltwater durability. Suited to inshore light jigging and lure casting. The Micro Module Gear II and Silent Drive makes the gearing extremely silent and smooth. The main Hagane Gear provides strong cranking power and X-Protects provides superior saltwater resistance. The redesigned Long Stroke Spool provides improved casting distance and the new MGL Rotor delivers ultra-light friction free rotation. Ci4+ construction reduces weight by 35 to 55 grams when compared to the original Twin Power XD from 2017 and the aluminum Hagane Body provides rigidity. Featuring a Cross Carbon Drag system that outputs up to 11kg and all models are fitted with upgraded power handle knobs.

 

New Feature Upgrades

 

MGL ROTOR

The new Twin Power XD features the redesigned Magnumlite Rotor that delivers ultra light, almost friction free rotation, enabling you to control the retrieve with ultimate precision and sensitivity.

Lures become even more animated when using the MGL Rotor, and the ultra light experience lets you feel every movement of the lure, the bottom and ultimately the strike of the fish, no matter the size. 

MICROMODULE II

The surfaces of the drive gear and pinion gear have been analysed and updated from the ground up in pursuit of perfection.

Starting from an already industry leading standard, reduced reel noise and even smoother gear feeling has been achieved.

X-PROTECT

X-Protect was developed for stopper bearing protection in the previous model and provided high-level waterproofing. The new Twin Power SW employs X-Protect for its line roller as well and further improves its waterproofing performance.

The new structure protects bearings inside the line roller from the harsh saltwater environment, and bearing durability is ten times greater than conventional designs. As a result of comparison tests by Shimano.

HAGANE GEAR

The Hagane Gear is produced by applying approximately 200 tons of pressure to the raw metal through unique technology called Precision Cold Forging.

Delivered with micron accuracy, no cutting work is involved. Hard and tough, the Hagane Gear has high durability and delivers smooth winding.

HAGANE BODY

The Hagane Body chassis is made of highly rigid aluminium alloy. It eliminates flex, warp and distortion of the reel, and protects the engagement of gears inside. This allows for smoother winding.

LONG STROKE SPOOL

The long stroke spool design improves casting performance when compared to the previous model due to the improved line flow from the spool.

SILENT DRIVE

 From the basic body design through to the most intricate parts of the drive train including the drive gear, worm shaft, worm shaft pin and worm shaft gear, every piece has been carefully reviewed.

Consequently, the smallest clearance gaps and wobbles have been eliminated to the highest tolerances. As a result, a new generation of silky smooth winding performance and pristine silence has been achieved.

X-SHIP

In addition to an enlarged drive gear, optimum positioning of the pinion and drive gears, and two-point support of the pinion gear whose ends are supported by bearings, all these mechanisms deliver robust gear engagement.

The X-Ship system permits smooth winding, even under heavy loads.

G FREE BODY

G Free technology has been developed to shift the reel’s centre of gravity closer to the rod. Having the centre of gravity closer to an anglers hand position, we reduce fatigue and enhance casting distance.
