Shimano says its new Speedcast XS surf reel features a long-stroke spool design and slow oscillation, which packs line tightly on the reel for extreme casting distance. The spinner uses X-Ship, reinforcing the alignment between the pinion and drive gear, to deliver a 4.3-to-1 gear ratio and retrieve 40 inches of line per handle turn. The reel holds 590 yards of 40-pound braid, 510 of 50-pound braid, or 360 yards of 65-pound braid. With a max drag of 22 pounds and a weight of 22.9 ounces, it costs $149.99.
