For the Rock hoppers and Surf anglers on the hunt for a new spin reel, if ever there was a unit that immediately commands attention on first look, it’s the new Shimano Aerlex XSB. After a significant upgrade the new Aerlex XSB is a force to be reckoned with. Serious cranking power and superb casting manners make this a perfect option to strap to your 10+ footer for surfside and ocean rock expeditions.
The key feature is the ARC spool coupled with Aerowrap II. It is this combination that allows for the prodigious casting distances most rock and beach angler’s desire. The lip of the ARC spool provides a massive reduction in friction. Friction is definitely one of the biggest distance killers. The other distance killer is a poor line lay. It is Aerowrap II technology and the slow oscillation that provides an even, uniform line lay that allows your mono or braid to peel of like lightning every cast.

This, plus a drag max of 15kg gives you an indication of the sort of fish you will be chasing. Cast Poppers, Hard body lures or metal slices from the rocks for Trevally and Yellowtail Kingfish. You can be sure that Queenfish and Mackerel will also take a fancy to a well worked lure as will massive Tailor and Aussie Salmon.
