Shimano Spheros 8000 SW
The Shimano Spheros 8000 SW pushes the boundaries further – with increased capacity and power. In fact, at 27lbs of drag, this is a beast of a spinning reel. That power puts you in the big league and aiming at yellowfin tuna and the like. The 8000 is also a real nice size for spending those peaceful early moments throwing a lure at the sunrise. Knowing that when you do hook a feisty Garrick, you have the power to stay in charge.
