Given a complete overhaul for 2021, the Shimano Twin Power SW C Spinning Reels check all the right boxes for maximum performance in challenging offshore applications. Now featuring the latest Shimano innovations and technologies brought down from their flagship series, the Twin Power SW is more capable than ever. The addition of Shimano's Infinity Drive technology provides anglers with more cranking power under load, optimizing winding torque by an additional 26%. Also new is the incorporation of the Heatsink Drag system borrowed from the Stella SW C on the 10000 and 14000 sizes. This feature delivers overwhelming drag performance during blistering runs by powerful game fish by dissipating heat away from the spool to reduce drag-force drop caused by friction. The Heatsink Drag also provides insulation against potentially damaging heat flowing into the line, ensuring that line strength is preserved during long drawn out battles. A slew of other proprietary Shimano technologies make their return to solidify the Twin Power SW C as a top contender among offshore spinning reels. Whether targeting reef species with jigs or pitching live baits to pelagics, the new Twin Power SW empowers anglers to have a distinct advantage and conquer any battle.

I love Twin Powers

Great reel for whatever you intend to use it for. I have 4k and 5k Twinpower FD's that I love. Just got a 14K SW and it seems like everything I would've expected. Great high end reel.

i bought this to replace a saragosa SW and couldn't have been happier. The Saragosa is a workhorse but the Twin Power SW is an amazing lightweight, smooth, and powerful real. It feels lighter then its listed when in use and i can fish it all day. Looks great and performs even better. Will certainly purchase again in the future.

As everybody has stated this thing is smooth and just very elegant to handle. The grip knob is very comfortable, drag is amazing.

So smooth, refined and elegant won't give this reel up. But if money was a little tight I'd stick with the saragosa.

This reel is un-real!

I paired this reel with my St. Croix Legend Surf Spinning Rod, Model: GSS106MHMF2 and the two together is a match made in heaven. I was using 3 to 6 ounces total weight (lure plus sinker) and the cast was so smooth and felt effortless, even into the wind. I am definitely buying the 6000 for my St. Croix Triumph Surf Travel Spinning Rod.
Pros
  • Casts just like my Stella reels without the $$$.
Cons
  • The bail arm does not automatically close.

This reel is amazing. The line pickup is so smooth. It balances perfectly on my 7’ 6” rod. I’m glad I held out until it was back in stock. If you are looking for a great quality, workhorse reel this one will fit the bill
Pros
  • Smooth
  • Heavy Duty
Cons
  • None

Amazing reel

Excellent choice of reel with high retrieve rate, brutal drag, slight improvement over last design of same reel. Really a catch anything reel for a spinner. With braid you have a ton of line capacity.
Pros
  • Line retrieval per crank
  • Drag
Cons
  • Cost

I have used this reel in the past. I use it for surf fishing in C abo San Lucas. Excellent product, super smooth, lots of drag, great line capacity, but best of all retrieve is super fast for catching Dorado, Rooster and Sierra.
I highly recommend this product

Was able to get my hands on and 8000 SW C. The fit and finish was better than expected. Cranking the handle was the same as my Stella's. Went ahead and grabbed a 6000 before they were gone.
Pros
  • Stella performance at less $$$

I got the 10000 size and it has been great, so smooth and strong. The new color makes the reel look awesome too.

Smooth, Powerful, and light weight
September 20, 2021
I bought this reel to be used in the back bays, for my light setup. Oh man, I ran into a school of blitzing snapper blues. They are no match for the reel, its so powerful and smooth, it was an overkill.
Pros
  • Smooth and light. The handle knob is a plus. I like everything about it.
Cons
  • nothing at the moment

SW C.  what does C means? Other 2021 twin power only say SW.  thanks
1 Answer
Hi Tey, According to Shimano, The Letter "C" just indicates what exact model it is. The previous model Twinpowers model number is TP4000SWBXG, TP for Twinpower, 4000 for size sw for saltwater B for the model and XG for xtra fast gear. The B model was introduced in 2015 and discontinued in 2021. The newest model is TPSW4000XGC, everything is the exact same, except there is a C now instead of B. That indicates that is the newest series released in 2021. Please let us know if theres anything else we can assist you with. Tight Lines.
