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 specialty of the brushless, high-torque, high-speed, and durable GigaMax Motor that packs a winding strength of up to 290 pounds. The BeastMaster boasts an amazing 55 pounds of thermo-adjustable drag power with a 50% reduction of drag heat, so deep-water species like grouper, trevalla, swordfish and tuna will not be a problem. Anglers can halt spool rotation with the aid of the mechanical brake knob to prevent backlash from the rig as it drops into the depths.
