Surfcasting Spool by MV Spools for Shimano Ultegra 14000 This is an ultralight Surfcasting Spool by MV-Spools. These spools are ultralight and designed to maximize line delivery for optimal distance casting when fishing. They can also shave some serious weight off your reel and improve rotational performance when reeling in. I bought a pair to test them out but decided this product is not for me, it takes certain level of experience and expertise to use successfully. In other words they are harder to use compared to the original spools because the line just wants to jump off the spool naturally so they require more attention and practice to master. They have been barely used so if you have been wanting to test this type of spools, this is a good chance. Weights only 71 gr (As a reference, the Ultegra 14000 stock spool weights 120 gr) Compatible with most Shimano Ultegras 14000 and some Techniums. Full list of compatible models here Link CNC precision machined This is the Straight model, it is not conical or tapered Made in POM-Teflon, which has very good structural rigidity and impervious to oxidation Nice progressive carbon drag and nice clicker This particular model is the so called Type 3, designed to be used with small diameter lines. Manufacturer stated Line capacity 0.16 mm/300 yd -0.18 mm/270 yd -0.20 mm/215 yd In my tests, the real world line capacity is about 20-30% less I would recommend braid in 0.13-0.15 mm (8-15 lb test), this way you can spool about 250 yds which is plenty for a nice long cast to target say Pompano or Whiting at long range. PRICE: $24.99 per spool (Shipped within the US) I paid $35 for each shipped from Europe **I have two spools available**
SHIMANO Power Aero XTB 14000 Surf Long Cast Reel (EDM) - MADE IN JAPAN This reel needs no intro but all I can say is that it is superb. If you do Surf fishing and need distance, this reel is for you. It is a recent model so it has all the newest Shimano technologies: Super Slow Oscillation, X-Protect, Waterproof drag, One piece bail, Antitangle fin, Forged Aluminum frame, etc., etc. It is rigid and it feels precise in every movement. The line management is sublime. It really adds pleasure for us Surf casters. Last, this is the lightest Surf Long Cast reel manufactured by Shimano, with the exception of the Technium, it weights only 505 grams. Selling it because I bought two, being overzealous, but I only need one. Condition: Reel has not been fished more than 8 hours. I am OCD and it is clean as new. Only minor detail is that there are a couple of scratches in the reel foot from mounting it on my rods. Includes: Everything as when it came new (see pics).

Shimano Ultegra 5500 Ci4+ XSC Selling because I am upgrading. I have two of these reels, both have been used very lightly for about a year. I am obsessive when I take care of my gear, cleaned and lubed after every outing. Reels are tight as the first day. You will fee like you received a new reel. Key facts: This is the exact same reel as the Ultegra 5500 Ci4+ XTC that currently retails for $330, only think that is different is the color.
