SHIMANO TWIN POWER THREADLINES

The new Twin Power threadlines join the Stella and Sustain families at the top of the Shimano threadline tree, and are sure to become popular with anglers seeking a high performance reel, but without a high performance price.

There are four reels in the lineup - the diminutive TP1000FB, which holds 140 yards of four pound line, the 2500FB that takes 200 yards of 6 pound, the 4000FB, which holds 240 yards of eight pound, and the big 6000FB that easily accommodates 265 yards of 14 pound.

Naturally, these line capacities are increased when using braided line.

All four reels have seven A-RB bearings plus one roller bearing, except for the 6000FB, which has eight A-RB bearings and one roller bearing.

A cold forged drilled-out Stella style spool looks extremely cool and keeps it nice and light, while a super slow oscillating system distributes the line neatly - an important feature when using braid.

A bearing-supported Power Roller on the bail arm cuts down friction and all but eliminates line twist into the bargain.

The hybrid aluminium and XT7 body keeps weight down and the Biogrip power handle means that all four reels are a pleasure to hand-hold during long casting sessions.

Throw in A Floating Shaft, Dyna-balance and a lubrication port to keep internals moving smoothly and a Twin Power reel becomes an extension of yourself.

A spare spool to accommodate another line class rounds out what is a very attractive threadline package.
