Shimano Ultegra 5500 XTD



Shimano Ultegra 5500 XTD

The Shimano Ultegra 14000 has become the gold standard for hard-core specimen carp anglers in South Africa. We are glad to introduce the Ultegra 5500 XTD, the smaller brother, but just as mean!!!

With matt black cosmetics the reel is instantly recognizable and will always sit pretty on top of your rod pod.

Ideally suited to slightly shorter range carp angling, the 5500 sizes still hold over 300 meters of Tergo braid in 25lb.

The Ultegra 5500 XTD is not just a great looker but comes packed with all the features demanded by the discerning specimen carp fisherman.

Shimano Ultegra 5500 XTD also features the Multi-disc Instant Drag facility that enables a free spool to power setting in just half a turn of the front drag, making it suitable to instantly fight the carp that is on the other end of the line.

Packed with unique features like X-Ship, Super Slow Oscillation and  Aero Wrap II for perfect line lay this reel simply has it all!

To top all this off the Ultegra 5500 XTD is fast!!! Real fast, picking up 104 cm of line per revolution of the handle, coupled with X-Ship gearing to effortlessly move big 6-8oz weights back to shore for quick re-baiting…

The  AR-C spool coupled with perfect line lay will ensure excellent casting distance and accuracy.

We suggest spooling with Rovex Tergo 25lb allowing as this braid sinks well. Please feel free to use our in-store spooling service that is highly recommended and free of charge if the reel and line is bought from us.
