Product Details


The FORCEMASTER 9000, a must-have item for deep-sea fishing for snapper and red snapper, as well as for big game fishing such as yellowfin bream and swim-around fishing, has undergone a model change. The newly equipped Tankenmaru scale makes it easier to catch fish at the bottom of deep zones, preventing problems such as root snagging. In addition, advanced technologies such as the highly rigid HAGANE body, a powerful drag system that achieves drag force comparable to that of the BEASTMASTER 9000, a cold-forged aluminum clutch lever, and the Heat Free System II that enhances heat dissipation of the motor provide powerful support for hard-core deep sea fishing. The newly adopted CI4+ handle knob enhances the stability of the grip and gives the lure the appearance of an adult's tool.

The HAGANE Body is a metal reel body with high rigidity. The body rigidity and impact resistance virtually eliminate body flexing on the reel while fighting a fish. The result transforms the angler's actions directly into cranking power.

The e-Exciting Drag Sound is an electronic drag sound from the reel when a fish makes a run. This creates a modern solution to the mechanical clicker while adding excitement to an angler’s experience.

S A-RB bearings are put through the same process as Shimano’s A-RB bearings but feature shields on both sides of the bearings. These shields reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting the rotation of the bearing.

A-RB stainless-steel ball bearings are specially treated to drastically increase the corrosion resistance of the bearing.

Fine Dot LCD Display provides ultra clear resolution in full sunlight.

Models determined usable in saltwater.





The result is a lightweight and sensitive blank with exceptional lifting power and durability. To effectively leverage this, reliable componentry has been used through the build. Aluminium Oxide Seaguides provide trouble-free line management with both monofilament and braided lines, while graphite reel seats and slim EVA grips provide optimal comfort and performance. You can rest assured, when selecting a spin rod from the Backbone range that you have a purpose-built rod designed specifically for your fishing application.
