Shimano Aerlex 10000 XTB Spod reel
Anyone who owned the old Aerlex 7000 XTA Spod reel will know what a powerful workhorse of a reel it was. This new larger 10000 version has not only been improved cosmetically, it has all-new gearing and offers increased retrieval ratios.
Bringing in a whopping 115cm of line for every turn of the handle. The larger diameter AR-C spool, Aero Wrap II line lay and two-speed oscillation combine to offer enhanced casting performance. The spool features three separate line clips allowing you to have multiple spots clipped up at the same time without having to repeatedly use the same line clip which is much kinder on your line. The Aerlex 10000 XTB Spod reel retails at £84.99. On paper this reel ticks all the right boxes. Sure, it looks the part with its all black-styling, but it’s the features and performance that set it aside from other dedicated spod reels.
