NASCI SPINNING REELS

NASCI SPINNING REELS

The new Nasci series of extremely affordable reels features Shimano’s X-Ship and HGN Gearing technology, usually found on its higher-priced offerings. At the core is a cold-forged aluminum drive gear supported by a pair of high-performance bearings, providing significantly more torque and a silky smooth retrieve. And the gears never flex, bend or twist, so you can’t burn out the reel fighting a big fish. Available in 10 models for everything from light freshwater to medium saltwater applications, the Nasci lineup covers the bases.
