SHIMANO SPHEROS 18000FB


SKU: SHMSP18000FB     (Add to wish list)
Shimano Spheros 18000FB Series Heavy-Duty Saltwater Spinning Reel

Preferred by the country's top saltwater guides, the Shimano 18000FB Spheros FB Series Reels are built to withstand the abuse Mother Nature dishes out. Thanks to its waterproof drag, A-RB bearings and cold forged aluminum spool. And not only can the Spheros take it, it can dish it out too, with up to 44 pounds of drag! The Shimano Spheros 18000FB is a Heavy-Duty Saltwater Reel rated for 20-30lb test monofilament. Anglers looking to spool this reel up with Spectra Braid generally choose between 50-80lb test.

The Shimano Spheros 18000FB is very popular in the Northeast for Butterfly Style Jigging for Tunas and other species.

Anglers fishing in the surf will appreciate the new Propulsion Line Management System coupled with the Bail-Less Upgrade Kit. With a few simple steps you can be on your way enjoying a faster trouble free casting!
