Shimano Ultegra Spod XTE
The Shimano Ultegra XTE Spod Reel is the ultimate tool for long-range spodding. With a powerful maximum drag force of 20kg/44lb and a gear ratio of 5.2, this reel is built to handle the demands of spodding. Whether you're looking to accurately bait up a spot at range or simply trying to cover a large area of water, the Ultegra XTE Spod Reel is the perfect tool for the job.
One of the key features of the Ultegra XTE Spod Reel is its impressive line capacity. With the ability to hold up to 425 yards of 10lb mono, this reel is capable of launching a spod over a considerable distance. The line capacity is further enhanced by the reel's ability to handle heavier line weights - up to 16lb mono or 0.40mm diameter braid.
The 4+1 ball bearing system ensures a smooth and reliable retrieve, even when under heavy load. The reel's powerful gearing also means that reeling in a fully-loaded spod is no problem at all. The 124cm/49in line retrieve crank provides plenty of power to reel in your spod quickly and efficiently, while the compact yet comfortable handle ensures a comfortable grip during those long sessions on the bank.
In addition to its impressive performance capabilities, the Shimano Ultegra XTE Spod Reel is also built to last. The reel's durable construction is evident from the moment you pick it up, with a solid feel and high-quality finish. The reel is also designed to be easy to maintain, with a simple yet effective drag system and easy-to-access internals.
Of course, no spod reel would be complete without a range of advanced features to enhance its performance even further. The Shimano Ultegra XTE Spod Reel is no exception, with a number of key features that set it apart from the competition. One such feature is the built-in line clip, which allows you to accurately measure your casts and ensure that your spod lands exactly where you want it. The line clip is easy to use and can be adjusted to suit your preferred casting style.
Another key feature of the Ultegra XTE Spod Reel is its compact design. Weighing in at just 635g/22.4oz, this reel is lightweight and easy to handle. The compact size also makes it easy to transport and store, while the included reel pouch helps to protect the reel during transit.
