2 0 1 4 2 WWW.SHIMANO.COM Welcome to the 2014 Shimano Catalogue. Throughout the world Shimano ﬁshing tackle is associated with innovation, quality and value. Whether it’s the latest version of the award winning Stella SW, designed for some of the most extreme ﬁshing on the planet, or the new ‘value for money’ Exage Mono, the one thing you can rely on is the Shimano name. It’s your guarantee of quality. As a company, Shimano design products from the top down and constantly push the boundaries of what is possible. The beneﬁt for anglers is that our most innovative products deliver genuine advantages, not available elsewhere. And the beneﬁts are not only restricted to high-end products, Shimano mid and lower-priced products also feature superb innovation. X-Ship, developed for the very best Shimano reels in the world, now appears at the heart of many mid-priced reels. X-Ship is a combination of features that work together to create much greater eﬃciency. This delivers outstanding performance including more power, less wear and improved reliability. Our rod range continues to grow and gain an enviable reputation. At the high-end of the market Shimano are one of only a few companies to use 3M Powerlux, the most advanced carbon resin in the world. Rods built using this technology are stronger, lighter and more responsive. A perfect example of this is the outstanding new Tribal Ultra carp rod. For mid-range and lower-priced rods Shimano uses many diﬀerent material technologies including HPC (High Pressure Carbon) and Bioﬁbre, which adds strength and increases feeling and response. As an indication of how important Shimano view all anglers, irrespective of ability or budget, we are now using Fuji guides on many mid-priced rods. As you look through this 2014 Shimano catalogue you will notice a wide range of new products. Some of these are upgrades are on well known products, part of the natural evolution embraced by Shimano. The award winning Stella SW is a classic example of Shimano’s continual development program. We have taken a reel considered by many to be the best in the world and made it even better, by introducing a wide range of upgrades. The same applies to Power Pro Zero Impact. This is Power Pro braid with increased diameter sections placed along its full length. This enables you to make stronger connections in the increased diameter zone without using a heavier braid. Further developments include the launch of Exage mono. This award winning line is available in a wide range of sizes and also comes in a new ‘spool ﬁller’ concept which eliminates waste by oﬀering you the correct amount of line for a stated spool size. The ‘free line’ promotion, launched last year, also continues with new 2014 and previous 2013 Shimano reels. Following the huge success of the Organised Compact Design carp luggage, a new Tribal XTR range is now available with improved features and an exclusive, modern camouﬂage pattern developed especially by Shimano. Innovation, quality and value. Shimano delivers all three, across a range of product covering the needs of all anglers, from the most advanced to the least experienced. Shimano... when it’s time to go ﬁshing, it’s the name you can trust.

SHOZABURA SHIMANO INVENTED THE FIRST FREE WHEEL BACK IN 1921, SHIMANO HAS PUT ALL ITS TECHNICAL EXPERTISE, KNOW HOW AND MANUFACTURING EXCELLENCE INTO THEIR PRODUCTS. IT IS THEREFORE EASY TO UNDERSTAND WHY OUR FISHING REELS ARE KNOWN, THE WORLD OVER, FOR BEING BOTH HIGHLY DURABLE AND RELIABLE OPERATORS IN ANY CONDITIONS. BEST DESCRIBED AS MECHANICAL PIECES OF ART! REELS SHIMANO REEL TECHNOLOGY 7 AT THE HEART OF ALMOST ALL TOP AND MID PRICED SHIMANO REELS IS X SHIP. THIS TECHNOLOGICAL FEATURE PRODUCES OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE AND IS ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS WHY SHIMANO HAS THE ENVIABLE REPUTATION AS ONE OF THE PREMIER REEL MANUFACTURERS IN THE WORLD. 1 2 3 3 4 1 Large diameter drive gear 2 Pinion gear 3 Shimano A-RB Roller Bearings 4 Pinion Gear shaft Shimano has many unique technological features which deliver the ultimate in reel performance, and at the heart of many models is Shimano X-Ship. X-Ship is a combination of features that work together to create much greater eﬃciency. By positioning the pinion gear close to the centre line of the large diameter drive gear, more power is transferred from the handle to the rotor. The pinion gear is also supported by two Shimano A-RB roller bearings. This creates more stability and minimises pinion gear twist and rotor deﬂection in extreme situations. THE BENEFITS OF X SHIP • Lighter handle rotation • Greater winding power • Less deﬂection of the rotor under extreme pressure • Reduced twist of the pinion gear shaft • Increased smoothness • Reduced wear • Maximum eﬃciency 8 WWW.SHIMANO.COM GEARING AND BEARINGS MATERIALS Hypergear X-Ship is a combination of features that work together to create much greater eﬃciency. By positioning the pinion gear close to the centre line of the large diameter drive gear, more power is transferred from the handle to the rotor. The pinion gear is also supported by two Shimano A-RB roller bearings. This creates more stability. The precision engineered main Hypergear transmits more power from the handle to the rotor. Designed to exacting tolerances, it requires less eﬀort but returns more retrieve playing torque with vastly reduced component wear. magnesium Shimano use magnesium for a select number of ultra high quality reels where weight saving is essential. The use of magnesium oﬀers a weight saving of up to 10% compared with aluminium. CI4+ is an advanced version of the original CI4. This highly technical material is 2.5 times stiﬀer than CI4 and is used on many high-end Shimano reels to increase weight savings. Use of CI4+ for the body and rotor also delivers remarkable stiﬀness for better reel eﬃciency. aluminium Shimano uses aluminium in many diﬀerent forms to construct lightweight, ultra strong reel bodies and rotors for midpriced and high-end reels. Diecast aluminium is used for many types of reel and is most common on ﬁxed spool reel bodies and rotors. It is also used for spools on P4 ﬁxed spool reels and come baitcasting models. Cold Forged aluminium is used for some ‘round’ reels, ﬂy reels and is also used for many types of spool. Made from one single piece of aluminium Cold Forging produces great strength. Machined aluminum is used for the very best multiplier reels where precision, strength and lightness are very important. Hybrid bodies are produced from a combination of aluminium and XT7. CI4 is an exclusive material created by the inter-fusion of carbon and polyamide. It is almost as strong as metal with the lightness of a composite. CI4 is used for the body and rotor on many Shimano reels. Shimano Shielded A-RB bearings use a shield to prevent contamination. This protection reduces wear, improves eﬃciency and deliverers super smooth performance. Dyna-Balance reduces wobble during the retrieve by counter balancing the rotor to enhance sensitivity and smoothness. By using computer balancing Shimano are able to redistribute the rotor weight to create eliminate vibrations. XGT-7 XGT-7 is an improved version of the tried and trusted Shimano XT-7 composite material. Used on some of the newest mid-priced reels XGT-7 is lightweight and stiﬀ. Shimano S A-RB bearings are high corrosion resistant A-RB ball bearings with an extra shield for improved protection against sand, salt or dust. S A-RB bearings are used in salt water reels. Easy Maintenance is a small oil lubrication port that enables direct lubrication of the inner workings of a reel with approved Shimano lubricant. Some highend Shimano reels have a line roller lubrication option. XT-7 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. REEL TECHNOLOGY GLOSSARY 9 REEL TECHNOLOGY SHIMANO HAVE A REPUTATION FOR ENGINEERING EXCELLENCE AND INNOVATION THROUGHOUT THE WORLD. BELOW IS AN OVERVIEW OF THE MOST IMPORTANT SHIMANO REEL FEATURES. MANY FEATURES, ORIGINALLY ONLY ON THE MOST TECHNICAL REELS, ARE NOW WIDELY AVAILABLE. THESE FEATURES INCLUDE X SHIP, AERO WRAP II AND A RC SPOOLS. LINE LAY AND LINE MANAGEMENT ADDITIONAL FEATURES Aero Wrap and the advanced Aero Wrap II 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. Aero Wrap II is considered one of the best line lay systems in the world. Shimano 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. Rigid Support Drag Rigid Support Drag eliminates spool movement and wobble, even at light drag settings. The result is an incredibly smooth drag even at extremely light settings. Baitrunner Spool II allows the drag setting to be switched from a pre-set freespool to a pre-set drag setting by adjusting the Baitrunner lever at the front of the spool. Varispeed and the latest version called VariSpeed II oscillation system moves with two variable speeds to lay the line ﬂat and smooth onto the spool. This provides trouble-free, longer distant casts. Varispeed is found on budget and midpriced Shimano reels. Oscillation One speed Oscillation -the spool moves at a consistent speed. Two speed Oscillation - the spool moves at two diﬀerent speeds. Slow Oscillation - the spool moves slowly allowing more line wraps per cycle. Super Slow Oscillation - the spool moves very slowly forming almost parallel wraps of line. Waterproof Drag Using special protection gaskets, the drag is protected against the intrusion of water for more consistent drag performance. Instant Drag allows the drag setting to be switched from free spool to a ‘ﬁght’ setting by tightening the Instant Drag lever on the front of the spool in only a few turns. 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. Aerowave Aerowave is used on some Shimano saltwater spinning reels. This oscillation system is simple in nature, yet produces excellent line lay with both braid and mono. The special grooved design of the Shimano Power Roller signiﬁcantly reduces line twist and is a big advantage when using thin mono and braid. 10 WWW.SHIMANO.COM FE Stella stands for one thing - the very best!

Sizes from 4000 to 30000 SW-B The new STELLA SW focuses on absolute power. To achieve it, toughness, cranking power, rigidity, water resistance and drag performances have all been upgraded. The core technologies are X-Ship, which enhances power transmission eﬃciency through the gear, plus Power Aluminium Body, X-Rigid Rotor, X-Rigid Bail and X-Rigid Handle to improve rigidity and eliminate loss of power caused by ﬂexing. Synergy generated by all these technologies combine to prevent loss of power input from the handle and create enormous cranking power. In order to support this power, extreme toughness from X-Rigid Gear is introduced at the heart of the reel’s body. X-Tough Drag, with its dramatically enhanced heat resistance and toughness, anticipates the blazing speed of blueﬁn tuna and giant trevally. Drag performance has been made even smoother, further assuring its reliability. In addition to these epoch-making mechanisms, focus is also placed on water resistance, in order to maintain their initial performance and toughness. The dependable X-Shield system has been applied throughout, and X-Protect provided at the roller clutch assembly - a crucial area for water resistance.

The basic drag performance has been extensively reviewed and each of the metal and carbon drag washers show excellent heat resistance and durability. Through an in-depth study of the thickness and frictional force of each component within the drag system, the best combinations for optimum performance parameters have been found for each model and size. THE FOCUS IS NOT ONLY ON TOUGHNESS, BUT ALSO ON THE EFFECT OF ROTARY INERTIA Considering the harsh environment of saltwater shing, aluminium was selected for the rotor material because of its excellent durability, rigidity and corrosion resistance. Thorough attention was given to the thickness of every detail to create a strong rotor with assured toughness. While protecting the reelâ€™s main body against impact during shing and transportation, the rotor brings out the potential of all features such as X Tough Drag. The rotary inertia typical of aluminium generates the powerful and smooth performance of the new STELLA SW and e ortlessly supports shing with heavy load lures or while deep sea jigging. The new STELLA SW introduces high rigidity aluminium for its body material. This housing material emphasizes the STELLA SW concept to protect the reelâ€™s interior from the extreme saltwater environment, creating a body with excellent toughness. This feature provides tremendous certainty in challenging saltwater shing conditions, enabling anglers to focus on their big prey with con dence. Body & Rotor FLY POWERFUL PROTECTION THROUGH HIGH RIGIDITY Handle Handle shank In the new STELLA SW, the handle shaft is shaft casing now integrated with a one-piece collar. This all-in-one structure enhances rigidity of the shaft casing, while in addition a new con guration is adopted for the mating surface with the handle shank. This allows the shaft casing to thoroughly and accurately The new handle shaft casing design results encase the top of the handle shank, thereby in rigidity equivalent to a cast piece. increasing the rigidity of the entire handle. For 5000 size reels and larger, primarily used for power shing, a cold-forged handle shank is used to prevent exing and distortion while preventing internal torsion. With these new features, handle rigidity tests show a 35% increase in rigidity. Even under high load, the energy applied by an angler can be directly transmitted to cranking power. BAITCASTING NO LOSS OF CRANKING POWER! Handle shaft MULTIPLIERS The use of thicker titanium wire dramatically increased the rigidity and impact resistance of the bail arm. The nature of the metal makes the bail lighter and provides excellent corrosion resistance. A super-reliable bail system has been created by combining a onepiece bail wire, an SW barrier coat big roller reinforced with Diamond Like Carbon (DLC), and a high-strength hard coated arm cam. RIGID BAIL IS ACHIEVED WITH SUPER STRONG THICK TITANIUM WIRE SURF CASTING SPECIMEN SINGLE PERFORMANCE IS NOT ENOUGH FOR THE ULTIMATE DRAG SYSTEM The contact type triple-lip structure is introduced to the roller clutch, the pivotal point concerning water resistance. In this structure, the rst lip prevents water from entering through the space between the rotor and the body. In addition, the special grease between the second and third lip - where it makes contact with the rotor collar located at the upper part of the roller clutch - not only resists water from entering but also minimizes friction resistance. TRIPLE LIPS AND SPECIAL GREASE FOR PROTECTION REAR DRAG HEAVY DUTY SALTWATER Ultimate toughness was sought for the main gear to withstand the maximum drag needed when tackling o shore pursuits. The di erence is obvious; the new main gear is thicker and stronger. With its additional special surface coating, a maximum of 38% greater durability is achieved over past STELLA reels. This is a super tough gear suitable for the heart of the new STELLA SW, designed for perfection in the most extreme situations. RIGID GEAR ULTIMATE TOUGHNESS ABLE TO BEAR ENORMOUS LOAD By providing dependable sealing structures and gaskets at necessary points, including the reel body and lid joint and the contact point of the spool and drag knob, possible water ingress is blocked.

It’s a reel designed without compromise and literally includes the best of everything Shimano has to oﬀer in a sleek futuristic body that is ﬁnished almost totally in black with subtle chrome detailing. The magnesium and CI4+ body components produce remarkable lightness, which in turn increases rod speed when casting. The combination of the AR-C spool, Aero Wrap II and super slow oscillation (approximately 100 turns of line per full oscillation) produces the most perfect line lay and the inclusion of X-ship engineering ensures maximum cranking eﬃciency when playing ﬁsh. A prestigious 8 Shielded A-RB bearings, plus a roller bearing, makes this model the smoothest Shimano ‘Big Pit’ you can own and a few turns of the slim proﬁle handle reveals it’s true pedigree. The inclusion of a line guard guarantees trouble free performance and prevents any chance of the line getting under the spool.

Finished is stunning gloss black, the ‘XT-C’ has an alloy body which contains X-ship engineering, 7 Shielded A-RB bearings, plus a roller bearing. These combine to produce smooth, eﬃcient and totally reliable ﬁsh-playing performance. The combination of the AR-C spool, Aero Wrap II and super slow oscillation (approximately 100 turns of line per full oscillation) produces the most perfect line lay which signiﬁcantly reduces line drag on the cast and the Baitrunner II spool can be easily tightened down for distance casting to prevent ‘spool slip’ under extreme pressure. The XT-C also features a line guard for protection. NEW XT-B The use of CI4+ delivers a substantial weight saving on the compact Ultegra body making rod speed easier to generate when distance casting. To further increase casting performance the Ultegra uses 2 Speed Slow Oscillation line lay and an AR-C spool ﬁtted with a Shimano Baitrunner mechanism.

RODS SHIMANO RODS INTRODUCTION / TECHNOLOGY GLOSSARY 63 ROD MATERIALS ROD COMPONENTS AND FEATURES Shimano High Pressure Carbon is a process which creates stronger, more responsive blanks. Pressure is applied to the blank surface during curing (heating) which evenly distributes the resin through the carbon ﬁbre matrix. The result is a much stronger, more consistent performance and improved responsive. Adding Bioﬁbre reinforces the carbon ﬁbres in all directions. This gives outstanding strength, shock resistance, lightness and power. Shimano use PAC BAY components on salt water and freshwater rods. High quality aluminium reel seats are used on the best Shimano boat rods and lightweight Pac Bay Minima guides are becoming popular on telescopic rods. Fossil Wood is used on some Shimano reel seats. Created by compressing organic raw materials into a carbon like state using over 1000 degrees of heat, the resultant material is much stronger than wood and each component is both unique and resistant to moisture Shimano Low Resin Carbon uses less resin to hold the carbon ﬁbres together. This results in lighter more responsive blanks. Low Resin Carbon is usually used on lightweight rods where balance and action are very important. GeoFibre is a naturally derived component that provides rigidity and high tensile strength when added to rods in the lower to mid-price rod band. For high quality salt water rods, Shimano often select ALPS guides and reel seats. ALPS roller guides have a reputation for excellence which perfectly matches the expectations of Shimano. The unique SDR construction process eliminates any spine forming during manufacture, meaning the blank action remains uniform, regardless of which way the rod is bent. FLY SURF BOAT TROUT TELESCOPIC 3M™ Powerlux™ Composites is nano-silica-resin technology that enables designers to develop rods that are incredibly strong and durable, and also lighter and more sensitive. Shimano is one of the few companies in the world allowed to use 3M Powerlux. XT Carbon is used throughout the Shimano rod range. The number following the XT (XT100), denotes the quality of carbon ﬁbre used. The higher the number, the stronger the carbon. Where diﬀerent types of carbon are combined to create the required action both numbers will be shown (XT60/40). Fuji are one of the leading rod component companies in the world and have a close working relationship with Shimano. Fuji guides are used extensively on Shimano rods. Fuji reel seats are also used on many high quality Shimano rods. Power Cork is tactile, ergonomic and lightweight yet it does not absorb moisture and is more resistant to bacteria. Created from natural cork, with an exclusive Shimano treatment, it does not degrade or age cosmetically. Power Cork is washable and used on many Shimano rods.

FRESHWATER SPINNING RODS 65 BX Built using HPC400LRC carbon with added Bioﬁbre the Lesath BX also features Shimano’s Steady Cast development. This feature delivers a spineless blank with reduced sideways torque, making casting more accurate. The use of lightweight Fuji SiC guides further compliments the casting performance and also improves the outstanding ‘special progressive’ playing action which is fast in the tip and parabolic in the middle section when put under pressure. The fast tip enables you to impart life and action to lures to entice ﬁsh to attack, whilst the parabolic middle keeps you in total control when playing the ﬁsh as it delivers controlled power combined with superb shock absorbing properties. Available in a wide range of lengths and casting weights to suit even the most demanding anglers, the Lesath BX Spinning is quite simply one of the most outstanding spinning rods in the world. 400LRC DX NEW TROUT FLY SURF BOAT The Antares is built on a HPC200 blank with the addition of Bioﬁbre, resulting in a fast, progressive action.

Components and areas of the blank have been stripped of weight to increase tip speed and recovery. Areas that receive critical amounts of pressure are strengthened to tolerate even the most aggressive casting techniques. The result is a ﬁnely tuned casting machine. HPC CARBON BLANKS HPC (High Pressure Carbon) is an exclusive Shimano process which increases blank strength considerably. Pressure is applied to the blank when curing, forcing the resin through the carbon matrix evenly. This reduces weak spots and improves overall strength. ANTI WRAP TIP GUIDES Lightweight Anti-Wrap 16mm Silicone Carbide Tip guides are better for distance casting and ﬁshing in weedy conditions. The reduced weight also improves tip recovery on the cast. Shimano Anti Wrap guides do not have a weld at the back of the frame. 50MM BUTT GUIDES Ultra light 50mm Silicon Carbide guides are available on all Tribal carp, spod and marker rods. This increases casting distance and limits ‘frap-ups’ that can occur when ﬁshing at extreme range. 50mm guides are perfectly suited to Shimano Super Slow oscillation reels. SAFETY ROD STOPPER A small abbreviation behind the reel seat locks the rod behind the rear rest ensuring it is not pulled in on a blistering take. PROTECTIVE LINE CLIPS Specially developed ‘soft touch’ line clips are ﬁtted to Tribal rod to ensure that line is never damaged when placed behind the clip.

A through action 11ft version is specially designed for the day ticket angler where shorter distance casting is required. The shorter length of this model vastly improves casting accuracy, gives more control in conﬁned swims and allows the angler to net ﬁsh closer in.

DESIGNED TO PRODUCE THE BEST POSSIBLE ACTION, THE SPEEDMASTER AND BEASTMASTER MODELS ALSO FEATURE COLOUR ROD BANDS FOR CLEAR IDENTIFICATION. Feeder - Red The Commercial range of feeder rods with a red band for identiﬁcation have built up a loyal following. The range starts oﬀ with quite possibly the ultimate commercial angler’s tool - the iconic multi length 9’-11’ Feeder available in both Speedmaster and Beastmaster. The 11’6” Feeder in both Speedmaster and Beastmaster has been speciﬁcally designed for more casting performance. The 12’6 Beastmaster Distance Feeder has been designed speciﬁcally for the long range ﬁshing on man-made ‘Commercial’ waters and combines power with a great playing action. Pellet - Yellow Pellet waggler ﬁshing has become the tactic of the last few years, and we at Shimano have come up with two rods for the job. Firstly the multi length 9-11 in both Speedmaster and Beastmaster which, when assembled at 9’, gives you the perfect rod for swims where space is tight and the ﬁsh are just out of pole range. At 11’, it’s a rod that really can cope with anything. The 11’6 model oﬀers that little bit more in terms of casting distance, whilst also having a little bit more in power to cope with bigger Commercial water carp. Put quite simply there’s nothing the 11’6 can’t do. With carp getting bigger in Commercial ﬁsheries, no range would be complete without power models and the Beastmaster range doesn’t disappoint with two options. The 12’ Power Float is ideal for everything from large pellet wagglers, splasher wagglers and conventional ﬂoat work for big carp in the margins. For anglers who want even more power there’s the Beastmaster Bagging Waggler. This power packed 12’ rod can cast 30g ﬂoats with ease and control large carp easily, making it the perfect rod for larger waters which contain larger than average carp.

ASUAX130 + 6 x GENXMPRA13KIT4 + 2 x SULTAXKIT4S + 1 x GENXCPAKIT4 + 1 x ASUAXSHEXT13 + HOLDALL 13.00 m The perfect matt ﬁnish for a pole. The silky smooth surface makes it easier to ship the sections of your pole. Because there’s no sanding process involved, the carbon ﬁbres stay intact and no matt paint is needed, therefore saving weight. In this process a layer is formed on the outer surface, which protects the ﬁbres from damage when scratched. Shimano Alignment system (S.A.S.) is a system to optimise the pole action. During production, the backbone of each section is found and marked. When assembled according to the S.A.S marks you get a stiﬀer performance. Available on some Shimano poles, this unique process results in a ﬁnish that is silky smooth for almost frictionless shipping and unshipping in both hot and wet conditions. It also provides great grip for breaking down sections and playing ﬁsh.
