Precision cold-forged gears symbolize Shimano’s metalworking technology.
Unlike with hot forging, Shimano’s precision cold forging technology, in which metal is compressed at room temperatures, achieves excellent precision and strength. The HAGANE Gear is produced by applying about 200 tons of pressure to the raw metal. This technology involves no cutting work to forge a high-precision gear with micron accuracy in a single process, and this is unlike any other in the world. Such quality deserves to be called “transformed metal.”
MicroModule gear enables smooth reeling.
With the gear teeth super-refined to the limit, the “Micro Module Gear System” enables seamless engagement and power transmission. The System, without compromising strength, reduces noise and provides you with far better sensitivity. You will be able to sense even the most subtle strike from a fish. The highly accurate engagement of these gears is protected by the HAGANE Body, a metal reel body with high rigidity. A combination of the precise gears and the rigid body makes eternally smooth reeling possible.
