Shimano incorporated its cold-forged Hagane drive gear into the newly designed Socorro SW spinning reels. Available in four models — 5000SW, 6000SW, 8000SW and 10000SW — Socorro reels also employ X-Ship technology for increased bearing support and better gear alignment. Their Cross Carbon drag handles fast runs from pelagic and large inshore species. The two smaller sizes, for 30- and 50-pound braid, retrieve 31 and 33 inches of line per crank and feature 4.6-to-1 gear ratios. The larger reels offer 4.9-to-1 gear ratios, retrieve 37 and 40 inches per crank, and handle 50- and 65-pound braid. Each costs $129.99.
