2018 Shimano Twin Power XD Spinning Reels
The Twinpower XD is developed for salt water spinning. The reel is made for 'rough' circumstances: salt water, wind, dust, etc. Because of the X Protect technology, the reel is suitable for these heavy conditions. It has an extra big handle knob for good grip, extra heavy duty drag with carbon dragplates, etc. How ever, it's not a typical SW spinning reel like the Twinpower SW / Socorro etc.; it's much lighter and has a MGL rotor. This means this reel is most suitable for relatively light inshore fishing for species like seabass, bluefish, etc. with small / medium sized lures. For the heavy offshore spinning with big stickbaits and poppers, a typical reel from the SW series is more suitable.
