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.

  • Pinion Gear: Super hard brass
  • Stainless steel bail
  • Aluminum rotor
  • X-Ship technology
  • X-Rigid Rotor
  • X-Tough Drag
  • XGT7 Side Cover

Hagane Body: Metal reel body with high rigidity. The body stiffness and resistance virtually eliminates body flexing. The result transforms your actions directly into cranking power.
X-Ship: Provides greater power transmission efficiency through the use of large precision cut gears with increased bearing support
X-Rigid Rotor: shape and thickness of the aluminum rotor creates high rigidity that results in more fish fihgting power. Increased mass of this rotor generates more inertia resulting in easier fishing of heavy jigs and high resistance lures
X-Tough Drag: Applies pressure from above and below the drag washers and distributes that pressure across a larger surface area. This results in a stable, tough drag system.
X-Shield: By placing sealing gaskets in 12 critical locations throughout the rigid aluminium body, thus a water resistant structure that can hold up against the toughest conditions and fish out there.
X-Protect: The first lip in the proprietary three-lipped rubber seal system is designed to keep low pressure water out. Then grease between the second and third lips resists high pressure water while enhancing a smooth rotor rotation. Sealing at the roller clutch is the optimal location to prevent water intrusion.

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.

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

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.

I came here under the fish gear guide for dorado
September 25, 2018
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.

A good rod to pair with your Shimano Twin Power 5000 for targeting Stripers and Albies would be the St.Croix Avid Inshore spinning rod VIS76MHF.  Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with.

hi what rod would pair well with the 4000 fishing for schoolies and albies from shore
1 Answer
For the 4000, I would take a look at the 7' or 7'6" M or MH power St. Croix Mojo Inshore Spinning Rods. Either rod would be a great fit with that reel and would make a fun setup for overall inshore fishing. The 7'6" may offer better casting distance to reach breaking fish, but is still very similar in action to the 7' models. Attached below is a link to that rod.

Does this reel have a selector switch for anti-reverse? Would the 1000 make a good reel for SM bass and LM Bass?
1 Answer
This reel does not have an antireverse switch. These reels are also only available in the 4000, 5000, 8000, 10000, and 14000 sizes. For LM and SM bass, you'll want the 4000. I would also take a look at the Stella FJ, which has a 1000 size which would be better suited for bass fishing.

Is the 14000 too big for a Zenaq Expedition 83S?
1 Answer
The Shimano Twin Power 14000 is a tad large for that rod. I would go down to 10000 at the most. An 8500 would likely be the best pair. The types of lure this rod is rated to use are not large enough to need such a capable reel. If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to ask.

Can you recommend spinning rod for reel 4000 sw?
1 Answer
It's difficult to recommend a rod for the reel without knowing what you are planning to target with that set-up. In the most general terms, a 7ft to 7'6 inshore rod in the Medium-Medium Heavy range would be the deal. If you have a specific purpose in mind for the rod, please give us a call and we can walk you through some options!
