Shimano Aerlex XTA 8000

Product Information

The Aerlex XT-A 8000 is a great compromise for anglers wanting Big Pit distance casting performance, combined with the balance of a more traditional sized reel. Finished in understated metallic charcoal grey, with gunsmoke grey and silver components, this is a reel which will compliment any rod. The high specification includes Aero Wrap II, with 2 speed oscillation line lay and an AR-C spool, for maximum casting performance and a 4.6:1 retrieve for powerful controlled retrieves and fish-playing. A specially designed spod version is also available for anglers who want a separate spodding reel.
