The Shimano Spheros SW Spinning Reels offer more to the angler with the new Shimano SW concept features.

  • X-Ship: X-Ship provides improved gear durability. By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with bearings, the pinion gear maintains precise alignment with the drive gear. This means the gears will stay in the same position under the heaviest loads. The added benefit is that friction between the spool shaft and gear is eliminated, enhancing the casting performance with lighter lures, and allowing for longer casts.
  • X-Shield: By providing dependable sealing structures and gaskets at necessary points throughout the reel, X-SHIELD is able to block water intrusion. This protection provides high reliability and durability when SPHEROS SW is used in extreme fishing conditions.
  • Shimano CF Gear: To deliver the toughness and performance level required by saltwater anglers, Shimano utilizes their cold forging technology to deliver a gear with incredible structural strength that provides the best protection against abrasion and damage.

Great value

I was using the 5000 Daiwa Procyon on my 9' Lami SS as a light surf set up for smaller Striped Bass with the occasional keeper until it had to be sent in for service. I have the 5000 Shimano Saragosa SW and really like the reel so I decided to replace the Daiwa with the Spheros even though I know I am not comparing apples to apples. I have used the Spheros a few times and have caught Striped Bass to approx. 34". The reel is nice and smooth, casts well and does a nice job managing the 30lb braid I have spooled on it. I really like this reel. I only wish it was just a little bit lighter.
ProsExcellent value. Nice drag. Good line mgt.
ConsWish it was just a little lighter.

Hi, There is quite some dispute on the internet about the "real" weight of the Shimano reels. It appears that what is stated about it on the official website of Shimano USA differs from the European, and on the Australian one for that matter. And the specs on your website doesn't differ from that. And that's confusing. I'm interested in buying either the Saragosa 6000, or the Spheros 6000 to pair it with a Tsunami Airwave Elite TSAWESS-1062MH. And weight matters for me in this case. So could you inform us about the "real" weight of them. Thank you.
I went and weighed them both and it looks like they are both a bit over 16oz, with the Saragosa being slightly heavier. If you want the lighter reel, I would go for the Spheros.

Left hand retrieve only? or both R or L?
The Spheros reels can be switched between left and right hand retrieve.
