The SW technology which was previously exclusive to the flagship Stella adorns the Twin Power family. With sizes from 4000 through to a powerhouse 10000 size, these are seriously tough reels, appealing to saltwater anglers seeking all sizes of fish including big game blue water species. Freshwater spinning experts will also appreciate such top-end quality. Bristling with advanced features including AR-C spool, SR one-piece bail arm and Waterproof Rigid Support Drag. Gear ratios range from 4.9:1 on the 8000PG model, to a pacy yet perfectly measured 6.2:1 on the 5000. Powered by S A-RB bearings, these are true thoroughbreds.

Awesome Tuna Jig Reel.
August 30, 2019
lower gear ratio than the 14k with almost the same size spool. I spooled it with 65 braid and put this reel on the shimano game type J 605s and had the perfect setup for inshore tuna. Took fish to 68†on the jig with no problem.
ProsGreat reel.

Really? 4000XG comes with felt drag washers...

Really? 4000XG comes with felt drag washers...

Everything is fine except the handle and drag washers.
1. 4000XG handle is 60mm long with EVA knob vs. 5000XG handle is 65mm long with CI4+ knob
so, I upgraded 4000XG handle to 5000XG handle.
2. 4000XG has the felt drag washers so I upgraded to the Carbontex drag washers.
3. I added O-ring to Handle Screw Cap

Prosfeels strong I think Twin Power SW is better than Twin Power XD

Currently using this reel in 3000, 4000, and 8000 sizes. Almost everything feels nice out of the box, but does it last? These reels are used hard, and have continued to preform at the highest level. My absolute favorite for everyday fishing. From speckled trout to tarpon its my favorite.
Prosexcellent drag great handle durable

I have seen these in person before at a local shop and was impressed with the smoothness of the retrieve, but i didn't think it would be used for mahi or even bigger fish (the guy who worked there was not very fishing knowledgeable), and couldn't even tell me the line capacity or drag. I usually don't like spinning reel setups and prefer using my Penn international 975 baitcaster reel setup when i fish for mahi. This reel does look like a monster though with 62 lbs of drag.....are you kidding me. You could probably tow a small car with that.
Prosbeautiful spinning reel. Smooth. 62 Lbs or drag.....What
Cons$619 is expensive

This is a must have reel that can do almost anything. The drag is Unbelievably smooth at top end - we catch everything from snappers to Yellowfin tuna on this reel. Great product for the Angler Who is focused on quality and performance

Best reel ever

This is the smoothest, strongest reel I own. The drag is smooth and strong and it casts like a dream. I use it for spinning of the beach. I know I can handle whatever takes the bait!!!

Extraordinary Reel

Super smooth and powerful. Similar features to the stella at half the price. It is my go to boat plugging reel. I love it. I have it paired with a custom 8' medium heavy rod.

Shimano twin power SW spinning reel
September 30, 2015
The twin power is light, strong and has the same top end features as the Stella at half the price. I have 2 Stella SWs and after using the twin power feels like it will be my go to reel. I also use the twin power in fresh water application.
ProsLight, strong and same feature as top end Stella at half the price

Manual or automatic bail with the 8000???
2 Answers
It is a manual bail.... The bail will shut on you if you turn the handle while it is open, but you have to shut the bail manually after every cast in order to prevent damage to the reel and twists in your line which than will cause wind knots and weak spots.
