Today we’re taking a look at the Shimano Exsence Spinning Reel EXSC3000MHG. This is brand new just released at ICAST 2017 and the way I describe this reel to people is that: it’s the twin power for guys who are doing shallow water redfishing. You can see how shallow that spool is it holds. It’s a 3,000 size reel and it holds about 110 yards of 15-pound test braid.
It’s got a very specific function to it which is those guys in the Gulf fishing for redfish and trout who want a super high end reel that’s crazy smooth, incredible lightweight and powerful. It’s got a magnesium body carbon fiber rotor, the second-generation MgO loader and it weighs just 7.7 ounces. On top of it just completely smooth. I have been playing with this thing, this came in recently and they’re just amazed at how good the gearing is on. It’s like Shimano makes the best gears in the world I think everyone knows that some people don’t like to recognize that but it’s just true and what you get with that combined with the cross carbon drag system which is waterproof yet 20 pounds of drag in just a super powerful reel that weighs not a lot. It’s also got 11 corrode stainless steel, corrosion resistant ball bearings. In there 12 total bearings, 6:1 gear ratio and it’s just a really nice drill. With my other trip there is nice and smooth and it’s designed to be corrosion resistant. With those ball bearings also about their system in there which sort of focuses water out of the reel in a certain way, the body design to make it as smooth and efficient as possible and she wanted just poured everything into this reel and it’s just great just has a very specific purpose to it or specific design doesn’t mean you can’t use it for other things which are kind of limited in terms of your line capacity because of the school that’s on them.
It is at the top end but you’re getting a super high advanced technologically, advanced reel that is really incredibly lightweight, powerful and I also like the cosmetics on this reel. This is like the first high-end Shimano really done without any goal. It back with just a little bit of really, really tiny amount of silver in there.
