The Spheros series of spin reels is an enduring Shimano brand that has been given the full makeover recently. The previous FB series were like work utes — tough as, take ’em anywhere, mistreat them, and yet they kept coming back for more. The new ones are a whole lot prettier, with increased creature comforts for improved fishing performance, but at the heart remain a gutsy, no-nonsense reel. Heading the list of features is X-Ship and X-Shield. The former sees a larger cold-forged drive gear and a double bearing supported pinion gear increase performance under load, while the latter means sealing gaskets have been placed in locations where water could otherwise enter the reel body, delivering a water-resistant barrier for the harshest fishing conditions. Depending on the reel model, the Cross Carbon drag can be cranked up from 10 to 18 kilos, which is precisely what hard-core bluewater anglers want when fishing braided super lines like Power Pro. The machined aluminium handle and the four SA-RB bearings making winding effortless — even under heavy load of a maxed out drag setting. Accurate distance casting, even with big, bulky lures and baits, is achievable thanks to the AR-C lip design of the cold forged spool, which prevents wind knots from forming and ensures the line leaves the spool in smaller loops with less guide slap.
