Shimano Ultegra 5500 XSD



Shimano Ultegra 5500 XSD

The Shimano Ultegra 5500 XSD will immediately catch the eye of the avid surf angler.

Now with major improvements in cosmetics and features like:

  • Multi-disc instant drag facility enables a free spool to power setting in just half a turn of the front lever.
  • X-Ship
  • Super Slow Oscillation
  • Aero Wrap II
  • Instant Drag

The Ultegra is also big on line capacity and will take over 300 meters of most 30lb braids.

We strongly suggest that you make use of our line spooling service. We take the spool off the reel and fit it onto one of our spooling machines. This allows us to pack the braid tightly with-out putting any unnecessary strain on the gears of your brand new reel.

Here at Fishing Pro Shop we believe the Shimano Ultegra 5500 XSD  to be the ultimate little reel for extreme distance surf spinning in places like Angola or the North Coast where those extra meters can be the difference between catching and blanking!

Although this reel is marketed as a Saltwater variant of the Ultegra we can see no reason why you won’t be able to make this a preferred carp reel? All the features seem exactly the same with the big difference being the XTD is black and XSD is silver!

We run a bunch of video channels too, on YouTube – right here is a saltwater list that is going to be growing flat out over the next short while…
