A-RB™ Anti-Rust Bearings

A-RB Anti-Rust Bearings

How are Anti-Rust Bearings at least 10 times more corrosion resistant than standard stainless steel? Shimano's innovative A-RB™ process concentrates the most corrosion-resistant element in stainless steel, chromium, at the surface of the bearings to achieve this incredible durability. The bearings are then crafted with a no-shield design that increases potential speed and makes for easy cleaning, and each is coated with a low-viscosity lubrication that promotes longer, faster and smoother rotation. You'll be amazed by the super-slick performance and incredible longevity of every reel featuring this new technology.
