Shimano Socorro 5000

Performance & Durability - The Shimano Socorro are very durable fishing reels, with a cold-forged aluminium body. It not only makes the Socorro incredible strong but also gives it a stunning finish aesthetically. With the X-ship and Hagane gear design, you can rest assured that the Shimano Socorro will fight any fish that you are going to hook up to.

Why buy a Socorro? The Shimano Socorro reels are a good all-round fishing reels that wont break the bank, and they are light, the only lighter in fact is the Biomaster, The Shimano Socorro is ultimately worth every penny spent on the fishing reel.

Socorro 5000, The Shimnao Socorro 5000 is an awesome reel for soft Plastics or bait fishing on inshore reefs and estuaries.

Socorro 6000, The Shimano Socorro 6000 will do what the 5000 Socorro will do but it has that little bit more line capacity for deeper water.

The Socorro and 8000, The Shimano Socorro 8000 is the perfect reel for light bottom bashing for plate sized fish in water anywhere for 15 to 150m deep. 300m of Power Pro Braid on it no problem at all, use Moss green if you are an East Coast fisherman as you will not get bitten off by Leatherjackets as much. 

The Socorro 10000, Personally used by us at Ottos the 10000 Socorro is an awesome reel for bottom bashing due to being so light, nothing worse than holding a heavy reel all day, but like all Shimano reels is still built tough and strong so it can still be used for wrestling big Kings away from structure.

 The Shimano Socorro covers all big fish applications from inshore to offshore, surf to pier, kayak to boat and saltwater to freshwater. Shimano Socorro is the new kid on the block and is proving itself in the harsh Australian environment. Shimano Socorro has proven again and again to be worth its very affordable price point. 

The Shimano Socorro  comes with a 10 year Shimano Australia Warranty
