Shimano Socorro SW Spinning Reels are designed for the challenges the saltwater environment can have on an angler and a reel. The inspiration for these reels comes from the knowledge of extreme conditions and excitement for saltwater fishing. The Socorro saltwater reels provide anglers with the confidence to fish in harsh saltwater conditions.
Hagane Gear: Allows for the reel to hold up in the saltwater with the cold forged drive gear.
X-Ship Construction: Keeps the gears in perfect alignment, increasing power and enhancing smoothness.
One-piece, highly rigid handle shank provides more cranking power.
Cross Carbon Drag: Provides long lasting smoothness to withstand fast, powerful runs from pelagic and large inshore species.
I would highly recommended this reel for beginners or long time fishermen overall great reel

Everything you can ask for and expect from Shimano with this price. Very comfortably weighted and capable of most tasks.
Smooth action and affordable

I bought these reels to use with a couple of saltwater Ugly Sticks for pier fishing. They're strong, smooth and affordable. No complaints, other than the round, hard plastic handle knob isn't as nice as the rubber ones found on the more expensive Shimano reels.

With a big crankin handle, Socorro lifts the groupers from the depths of the Gulf.
