The Power Aero XTC/XSC certainly lives up to its name. Packed with advanced technology, this reel is engineered to perfection in Japan and exudes quality design and craftsmanship. Long casts, with the latest technology including Infinity Drive, and a sleek two-tone finish, the Power Aero is visually stunning and unparalleled in performance. The Power Aero is a reel for serious anglers and if that appeals to you, you're not alone. Since its launch it has built up a huge following and is trusted by many thousands of anglers across Europe. It looks great in either color, is packed with the best technology and designed to perfection. There are even anglers who prefer this model over the ultra high-end Aero Technium Mgs. In use you will immediately recognize the smoothness of Shimano and when placed under extreme pressure, in a fishing situation, you will be amazed at how the latest Infinity Drive technology works in harmony with HAGANE Gearing and X-SHIP to deliver a remarkably lighter feel to produce winding power. Packed with technical features such as HAGANE Gear, aluminum HAGANE Body, X-SHIP, plus Infinity Drive and Silent Drive refinements, it also benefits from X-Protect and is designed to perform to the highest standards. The addition of Parallel Body technology increases casting distance and accuracy by eliminating line slap during the cast. This is further complemented by the excellent line lay of Super Slow 5 oscillation, combined with the AR-C spool design and Rigid Cast technology. Equipped with the advanced and near-instantaneous Hi-Speed drag, you can instantly switch from freewheel mode to fight mode with just a very small twist of the drag knob, or lock the spool when you make a long cast. Supplied with two spools and sets of Line Reducers, the stunning Power Aero does everything superbly, with a minimum of fuss.
