Item number LGTMHThe Ultegra XT-D has taken the carp world by storm since it’s launch earlier in 2016. The matt black ‘stealth like’ visual appearance of this reel is perfect for the modern features on this model that combine to improve casting performance. The Super Slow 5 oscillation wraps 50 turns of line onto the spool per full oscillation cycle. This produces remarkably smooth line lay. Also, for the first time, there is Shimano’s new Parallel Body design. This aligns the spool parallel to the rod butt which in turn reduces line slap when casting. In practical fishing situations the new super fast Instant Drag only requires one full turn from off to maximum lock making fish-playing easier. Destined to become one of Shimano’s biggest selling Big Pit reels over the next few years, the new Ultegra XT-D is the reel carp anglers have been dreaming of for years.
