The Saragosa SW has had a substantial overhaul and now features many of the components that are also found in the top-of-the-line Shimano Stella SW family.
Encased in a hybrid aluminium and XT7 graphite body with an XGT7 rotor, Shimano’s legendary X-ship bearing supported pinion gear and larger drive gear delivers remarkable cranking power with less effort and a smoother feel. X-shield and X-protect keep salt water out of key area, whilst the cross carbon drag is also waterproof. In face, the Saragose SW range is capable of delivering between 10 and 20kg of usable drag depending on the model.
A one piece bail arm assembly smoothly guide the line to the roller, Shimano’s Cam Oscillation system combines with the AC-C spool to ensure that braided line, such as Power Pro or Suffix 832 lays neatly on the retrieve without creating dips or troughs and leaves the spool with less resistance when casting for distance and accuracy.
