The Shimano Dendou Maru series is at the pinnacle of electric fishing reels within global angling. After years of development from the experts of Shimano, anglers now have a reel capable of truly exploring the deep reefs found on either side of the Continental Shelf. Pulling monsters from the deep is a speciality of the Gigamax (formally Z9)
With a name like Beastmaster, it comes as no surprise that this model features an eye-watering 25kg of drag power. Deep-water species like Bass Groper, Blue-eye Trevalla, Gemfish, and Hapuka wont be able to resist the power of the Beastmaster.
Amazingly, this model of electric fishing reel can provide you with ever-changing information gathered from the depths. You will then have the luxury of making instant changes to settings by adjusting retrieval speed and tension settings.
Shimano has incorporated a direct drive level (DDL) winder to ensure that fishing line is gathered perfectly by the spool. It is possible to halt spool rotation with the aid of the mechanical brake knob, while also preventing backlash from the rig as it drops.
In terms of the reel’s electronics, an efficient 12-volt battery (not included) powers the reel. However, the reel also has a power cord socket in the event that you require energy from a secondary source. Shimano has ensured the socket is waterproof, reliable, and safe above all.

The Shimano Beastmaster Electric Reel is specifically designed to target deep water species such as Blue Eye, Bar Cod, Bass Groper, etc. Since the loads on these rods are substantial we recommend a stout short stoker style rod rated to 37kg plus with a solid tips section and heavy duty guides and roller top(optional). We also recommend deep drop rods with use of this reel. Contact us at the Fishing Tackle Shop if you require further assistance in choosing a fishing rod for this reel.
