The iconic Super GT has been updated with some exciting new features. The fabulous Fightin’ Drag system is complimented with other unique features such as AR-C spool, Aero Wrap II and a lightweight yet durable XT-7 body material. The sleek cosmetics of the Super GT hide great power, this power comes from precision engineering which includes zinc diecast gear and the use of high torque 5.0:1 (2500 size) and 4.8:1 (4000 size) gear ratios. Three shielded stainless steel ball bearings and a roller bearing encourage super smooth running and a single machined aluminium handle delivers great winding power. The Super GT is available in both 2500 and 4000 sizes meaning there is a Super GT to suit many styles of angling from lure work for predatory species through to all styles of float and feeder fishing.

X Aero Wrap is a worm gear oscillation system with a specially designed pitch to create optimal oscillation speeds. This provides superb uniform line lay to reduce loss of energy during the cast. X Aero Wrap is considered one of the best line lay systems in the world.
XT-7 is the original Shimano composite reel material. Used on mid-priced and budget reels and spools XT-7 is reliable, robust and lightweight.
Easy Maintenance is a small oil lubrication port that enables direct lubrication of the inner workings of a reel with approved Shimano lubricant.
Fightin’ Drag, a secondary drag system used on some rear drag reels. Fightin’ Drag enables the easy adjustment of the drag setting whilst playing the fish.
AR-C Spool is a patented spool design with an angled spool lip. This design enables the line to leave the spool with less friction and in smaller coils resulting in longer more accurate casts. AR-C spools are proven to reduce backlash and wind knots when using braid. AR-C spools are now standard on almost all Shimano reels.
Super Stopper II eliminates backward movement and free play in the handle when the reel is set in anti-reverse.
The special grooved design of the Shimano Power Roller significantly reduces line twist and is a big advantage when using thin mono and braid.
