**WHITIANGLER'S REVIEW**: "The "big-boy" spinning reel, the Shimano Saragosa is the perfect choice when you want to lock and load on XOS Kingfish or keep in your arsenal for a shot at Striped Marlin on a spin set up.
For those wanting to chase monster Kingis on spin gear, this is the reel to cover you, when that fish starts heading for the bottom, put the heat on with 20kgs of smooth water proof drag. With its large spool, it can hold that extra line you need when targeting extra large fish. A Stella in silver clothing!"
The Shimano Saragosa SW has had a substantial overhaul and now features many of the components that are 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 areas, whilst the cross carbon drag is also waterproof. In fact, the Shimano Saragosa SW fishing reel range is capable of delivering between 10 and 20kgs of usable drag depending on the model.
A one piece bail arm assembly smoothly guides the line to the rollwer, Shimano's Cam Oscillation system combines with the AR-C spool to ensure that braided line lays neatly on the retrieve without creating dips or troughs and leaves the spool with less resistance when casting for distance and accuracy.
