Would be cool if the gosa got a remodel. I still love mine tho

No mention of that at least on the docket for up to early spring....Though what's going public stateside right now may be an attempt to not be stupid like daiwa....and set up dealers correctly for the yokohama show which is starting now.

Beware though...they have both x protect and x shield listed on their website....

I worry the smaller sizes get x protect.....

That would suck, I’d probably just buy a FL in that case. I’m pretty interested in the 6K with the magic 30# 300yard number....but only if it has the same sealing as the 8K and up.

We are not getting all of these models here but at least Shimano Japan knows how to do a great website with extensive pics and info. Unfortunately I don’t speak Japanese.

No stopper switching mechanizm, That is not good. There is a need for those. Especially when you are sitting.

New video...

 

Take a look at the 2020 Twin power FD! We took the 2015 Twin Power FD model and have revamped the reel making for incredibly smooth reeling action and a long stroke spool for increased casting distance. Some added information for our Shimano fans, the new Twin Power has the name rotor as the Stella FJ and the same body tooling as the Vanquish FB!

I'd ask if you were serious buy you're Glos....from the planet narnia....a gay ninja who wants to make fishing rods out of seatbelts.

 

There hasn't been a need in the salt for an ar switch in a very very long time.

I've never once heard anyone requesting one...you would be the first.

 

Look at ever shimano saltwater reel and tell me if you see one....not a single complaint....it's actually a major advantage.

 

Shimano, Daiwa, Penn etc.....don't have them..

 

You should write them a letter....I'm sure they'd file it with G

Find the differences. :)

 

 

Shimano Twin Power.jpg

Long stroke spool

Ci4 non reel foot side of the frame

Alu rotor on 2500 and up with springs in the non roller side.

Modular line roller bearing

New Clutch found in the Stella FJ, Stradic FL, Vanquish

 

Assumed better feel overall on the retreive (safe assumption since it's an upgraded stradic fl)

(i'd take a stradic fl over the previous twinpower)

Cool spool cosmetics

 

:)

I`m not gay, but you have a stubby fingers.

And I have used it and needed to use those a lot.

Type in feeder fishing and try to wrap your head around it.

 

I was once all against that feature, because when I was spinning, using lures, it really didn`t matter. But there are situations when it is.

Nice to see the new bling from Shimano.  Meanwhile this crappy anti reverse roller bearing still exists in great reels like the Conquest. Shimano can make a better product to hold up in a salty environment.

SO when you went on and on about being like a ninja, prefered being with men to woman, and all that stuff...that was just make believe?

 

I'd rather have stubby fingers than be a heterosexual ninja idiot from narnia.

 

Oh...and Don't think I didn't see that disgusting post you made last week...

 

Trash.....pure trash....
