When it comes to the right reel to tackle saltwater fishing challenges, anglers know gears are one of the most important features to consider. Shimano now offers its Hagane cold-forged drive gear in the newly-designed Socorro SW spinning reels, available in four models - 5000SW, 6000SW, 8000SW and 10000SW - to take on the harsh saltwater environment and species including stripers, bluefish, black sea bass, tautog and fluke.

Due to Shimano's cold-forging capabilities, the Socorro SW reels feature the durability needed for weekend-after-weekend fishing use. Shimano's X-Ship Technology provides increased bearing support for power transmission efficiency and perfect gear alignment, increasing power and enhancing smoothness when hooked into a big fish. Anglers will also appreciate the Cross Carbon Drag to handle fast, powerful fast runs from pelagic and large inshore species.

True durability to tackle nearly anything in the salt best describes the new Shimano Socorro SW spinning reels. Equipped with long-lasting Hagane gearing, the Socorro reels give anglers the strength for both inshore and offshore action, and with X-Ship Technology, they offer the ultimate in smoothness and power. Fish with confidence. Socorro SW reels are ready.

We offer the Shimano Socorro SW Spinning Reels in four sizes: 5000SW, 6000SW, 8000SW and 10000SW. Please see chart below for reel specs.

Socorro SW Reel Technology

Cross Carbon Drag

This drag material provides a wider range of drag settings, along with the smoothest Shimano drag performance ever.

Hagane Gear

With amazing strength and durability, the HAGANE Gear is at the very heart of the reel. Shimano, through the application of state-of-the-art technologies, gives you the long-lasting smoothness and pleasure that you feel when you first use a reel, over and over again. No cutting work is applied to the teeth of the drive gear. Instead the entire surface is calculated in minute detail by special 3D design and then formed by Shimano's cold forging technology. The result is assured resilience. It's the fruit of Shimano's inexhaustible pursuit for durability; the strength and power of forged metal continues to represent the fundamental concept of Shimano reels.


X-Ship provides improved gear durability. By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with bearings, the pinion gear maintains precise alignment with the drive gear. This means the gears will stay in the same position under the heaviest loads. The added benefit is that friction between the spool shaft and gear are eliminated. This will enhance the casting performance of the reel with lighter lures, and allow for longer casts.
