The SW technology which was previously exclusive to the flagship Stella adorns the Twin Power family. With sizes from 4000 through to a powerhouse 10000 size, these are seriously tough reels, appealing to saltwater anglers seeking all sizes of fish including big game blue water species. Freshwater spinning experts will also appreciate such top-end quality. Bristling with advanced features including AR-C spool, SR one-piece bail arm and Waterproof Rigid Support Drag. Gear ratios range from 4.9:1 on the 8000PG model, to a pacy yet perfectly measured 6.2:1 on the 5000. Powered by S A-RB bearings, these are true thoroughbreds.
Pinion Gear: Super hard brass
Stainless steel bail

Hagane Body: Metal reel body with high rigidity. The body stiffness and resistance virtually eliminates body flexing. The result transforms your actions directly into cranking power. X-Ship: Provides greater power transmission efficiency through the use of large precision cut gears with increased bearing support X-Rigid Rotor: shape and thickness of the aluminum rotor creates high rigidity that results in more fish fihgting power. Increased mass of this rotor generates more inertia resulting in easier fishing of heavy jigs and high resistance lures X-Tough Drag: Applies pressure from above and below the drag washers and distributes that pressure across a larger surface area. This results in a stable, tough drag system. X-Shield: By placing sealing gaskets in 12 critical locations throughout the rigid aluminium body, thus a water resistant structure that can hold up against the toughest conditions and fish out there. X-Protect: The first lip in the proprietary three-lipped rubber seal system is designed to keep low pressure water out. Then grease between the second and third lips resists high pressure water while enhancing a smooth rotor rotation. Sealing at the roller clutch is the optimal location to prevent water intrusion.
I used my friends a few time and it is incredible, very comparable to the stella

Awesome Tuna Jig Reel.

lower gear ratio than the 14k with almost the same size spool. I spooled it with 65 braid and put this reel on the shimano game type J 605s and had the perfect setup for inshore tuna. Took fish to 68â€; on the jig with no problem.
Really? 4000XG comes with felt drag washers...

Really? 4000XG comes with felt drag washers...
Everything is fine except the handle and drag washers. 1. 4000XG handle is 60mm long with EVA knob vs. 5000XG handle is 65mm long with CI4+ knob so, I upgraded 4000XG handle to 5000XG handle. 2. 4000XG has the felt drag washers so I upgraded to the Carbontex drag washers. 3. I added O-ring to Handle Screw Cap

Currently using this reel in 3000, 4000, and 8000 sizes. Almost everything feels nice out of the box, but does it last? These reels are used hard, and have continued to preform at the highest level. My absolute favorite for everyday fishing. From speckled trout to tarpon its my favorite.
Prosexcellent drag great handle durable

I have seen these in person before at a local shop and was impressed with the smoothness of the retrieve, but i didn't think it would be used for mahi or even bigger fish (the guy who worked there was not very fishing knowledgeable), and couldn't even tell me the line capacity or drag. I usually don't like spinning reel setups and prefer using my Penn international 975 baitcaster reel setup when i fish for mahi. This reel does look like a monster though with 62 lbs of drag.....are you kidding me. You could probably tow a small car with that.
Prosbeautiful spinning reel. Smooth. 62 Lbs or drag.....What

A Must Have Reel

This is a must have reel that can do almost anything. The drag is Unbelievably smooth at top end - we catch everything from snappers to Yellowfin tuna on this reel. Great product for the Angler Who is focused on quality and performance

Best reel ever
April 6, 2017
This is the smoothest, strongest reel I own. The drag is smooth and strong and it casts like a dream. I use it for spinning of the beach. I know I can handle whatever takes the bait!!!
September 18, 2016
Super smooth and powerful. Similar features to the stella at half the price. It is my go to boat plugging reel. I love it. I have it paired with a custom 8' medium heavy rod.
Nice, not a Stella

Shimano twin power SW spinning reel
September 30, 2015
The twin power is light, strong and has the same top end features as the Stella at half the price. I have 2 Stella SWs and after using the twin power feels like it will be my go to reel. I also use the twin power in fresh water application.
ProsLight, strong and same feature as top end Stella at half the price
The Shimano Twin Power 14000 is a tad large for that rod. I would go down to 10000 at the most. An 8500 would likely be the best pair. The types of lure this rod is rated to use are not large enough to need such a capable reel. If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to ask.Â
It's difficult to recommend a rod for the reel without knowing what you are planning to target with that set-up. In the most general terms, a 7ft to 7'6 inshore rod in the Medium-Medium Heavy range would be the deal. If you have a specific purpose in mind for the rod, please give us a call and we can walk you through some options!
I am looking at this reel(10,000 or 14,000) to use for jigging, casting and potentially trolling for Mahi and other game fish off the coast of NC. I was looking for a shimano rod would there be a recommendation from the new Ocea plugger line or the Terez line of rods. i use the rod off shore and inshore depending on the weather and wave heights. Thanks
Shimano TZS72MBLK Terez Spinning Rod Black would fit well with the stella 14000.
would a shimano game type J be a good rod for this reel? Casting for bass and blues and drop fishing for fluke. Thanks Tim
I think that it would be a good fit. I have not had a chance to fish these rods yet, but I am impressed by the way that they feel. I think that paired with a Twinpower, these rods would be great for blues, striper, and flounder.
Will this reel paired up with an 8'6" Medium or 8' Medium Ocea Plugger Flex Limited be good for catching Tuna, Mahi, Wahoo, and Kingfish around the 30-40 lbs. range? And maybe even an occasional Sailfish?
This reel and that rod would be an excellent combo for those fish, the reel especially.
