The Shimano BM9000 Beastmaster Electric Dendou Reel is Shimano’s premier electric reel to date, built upon the brushless Gigamax motor that greatly improves high end torque, speed, and durability all the while producing less heat. We all know that the generation of heat is the downfall of all electric reels, especially under high drags and torque when daytime swordfishing or hauling in other giants of the deep. In addition to the Gigamax motor, the Beastmaster also incorporates a Thermo adjust drag that provides a 50% heat reduction, along with Heat Free System II that allows any built up heat to release through the side vents within the reel’s side plate. With the heat reduction technologies built into the BM9000, the reel also offers extreme power, with 55lbs of drag at full and 250lbs of winding strength. Normally reels with this type of power and capabilities are extremely heavy and cumbersome, while the Beastmaster weighs in at only 53oz and is easily maneuvered around your boat after the initial hook up. Whether you are kite fishing, deep dropping for tilefish and other deep water dwellers, or even daytime swordfishing, the Beastmaster from Shimano is a fantastic option that can simply get the job done.

Shimano Technology Found In Beastmaster Electric Dendou Reels :
  • S A-RB Bearings - These bearings undergo the same anti-corrosion process as Shimano’s A-RB Bearings, with the addition of shields on both sides of the bearings to reduce the possibility of salt, dirt, or other foreign objects inhibiting the bearing’s rotation.
  • E-Exciting Drag Sound - Produces an audible drag sound in place of a mechanical clicker to provide the angler better feedback when a fish makes a run.
  • Gigamax Motor - A brushless motor design that provides the angler with extraordinary torque, high speeds, and supreme durability.

Great Deep Drop Reel
February 15, 2019
Holds appx 1800 ft of line with 200 lb top shot for swords - only problem is it doesnt stop at 500lb+ fish. Got spooled sitting at 1600 feet after fighting a fish with nearly locked drag for an hour. Oh well, keeps you coming back.

what can i say about the BM9000. compact. powerhouse that is a staple of my charter biz. from deep drop sword to big eye tuna off the bottom to 50 lb class tiles it has never let me down. Swordfish to 360 lbs and big eye to 222lbs on this little girl. For the money you can not beat this reel . performs as well as some of the 4500$ reels on the market while be light and super easy to fish. with little draw on your boats batteries!

Would this reel hold up for swordfishing? What rod would be a great match for this reel?

Can i use wire line in this reel
1 Answers
This reel has an aluminum spool therefore the dissimilar metals may cause some corrosion issues if spooled with wire line. You can use braided line which when used with weights or heavy lures will cut through the water column and get deep.

Can this reel be used to troll for wahoo with wire line?
1 Answers
You could use it for that application although, we don't recommend it. You will have to watch for corrosion because of the dissimilar metals, aluminum spool and steel wire will cause corrosion.
