Shimano Sahara RD Spinning Reel

Product number:

The fishing comfort of the easy to use Sahara RD spinning reel equipped with a rear drag is improved by the handy Fightin’ Drag that incorporates a lever that can be used to check the drag setting with a glance. In fast-paced situations, this may be the deciding factor providing added efficiency. The precisely adjustable rear drag of the reel is conveniently located near the fisher for improved fishing ergonomics.


• patented aluminum A-RC spool
• rear drag
• fighting drag
• bearings: 3 x ball bearing+ roller bearing special purpose bearing (corresponds to a traditional solution with 7 ball bearings)
• Varispeed II spooling
• Super Stopper II anti-reverse system

AR-C spool
One of the patents held by Shimano is related to the design of the leading edge of the AR-C spool. This allows the line to unspool almost directly towards the first guide when cast. This minimizes the friction at the guide nearest to the reel and eliminates the need for oversized guides.

Fightin’ Drag
The Shimano Fightin’ Drag system is adjusted using a separate lever, which is located at the rear of a spinning reel equipped with a rear drag. The lever is used to quickly switch the Fightin’ Drag from one standard setting to another, for example, from catching tension to fighting tension while jigging or from a nearly free line to catching tension when using a bait fish. The Fightin’ Drag is easy to use as the lever position can also be eye-balled. This makes it easier to adjust the drag output correctly and precisely, especially in fast-paced situations.

The Roller Bearing special purpose bearing developed by Shimano supports the reel shaft firmly in correct lining. Replacing this bearing would require 3–4 traditional ball bearings and therefore Shimano’s reels should be compared with other manufacturers’ reels that use 3–4 more ball bearings.

Varispeed spooling
This high-quality spooling system works reliably with multi-fiber, monofilament, and compound lines. Shimano Varispeed spooling provides an even line stack on the reel-side, enabling tangle-free, accurate, and easy casting.

Shimano SuperStopper refers to anti-reverse gearing in the reel. The gearing or the handle cannot move in the opposite direction at all. This allows the gearing to last for years and makes it long-lasting.
