The Shimano BeastMaster is at the pinnacle of electric fishing reels. After years of development by the experts at Shimano, anglers now have a reel capable of exploring the truly deep reefs. Pulling monsters from the deep is a speciality of the brushless, high-torque, high-speed, durable GigaMax Motor, with a winding strength of up to 290-pounds. With an amazing 55-pounds of thermo-adjustable drag power and a 50% reduction of drag heat, deep-water species like grouper, trevalla, swordfish and tuna will not be able to resist the Beastmaster. It is possible to halt spool rotation with the aid of the mechanical brake knob while preventing backlash from the rig as it drops.
The HAGANE Body is a metal reel body with high rigidity. The body rigidity and impact resistance virtually eliminates body flexing on the reel while fighting fish. The result transforms the angler's actions directly into cranking power, increasing efficiency through strength.
E-EXCITING DRAG SOUND
The e-Exciting Drag Sound is an electronic drag sound from the reel when a fish makes a run. This creates a modern solution to the mechanical clicker while adding excitement to an angler’s experience.
The GigaMax Motor utilizes a brushless design to provide high torque and high speed while maximizing durability.
THERMO ADJUST DRAG
Thermo Adjust Drag is a control function designed to suppress abnormal heat generation of the drag to maintain stable drag performance. If the drag slips while the motor of the electric reel is on, the gear will idle and cause an abnormal heat generation in the drag portion of the reel. As a way to suppress excess heat, the speed of the motor is automatically reduced by the Thermo Adjust Drag when the drag begins to slip.
CROSS CARBON DRAG
The Cross Carbon Drag material provides a wider range of drag settings compared to traditional drag materials. The Cross Carbon Drag provides the smoothest Shimano drag performance ever while providing anglers with increased durability.
HEAT FREE SYSTEM II
Heat Free System II dissipates motor heat by allowing the heat produced to be released from vents in the side-plate, ensuring reliable performance and peak power all day long.
