Shimano's strongest and largest ever. A true BEASTMASTER MD 12000 that conquers even the super big and deep sea.

The BEASTMASTER MD 12000 is Shimano's most powerful and largest electric reel ever, created to deliver the overwhelming power and speed needed to catch big fish in deep water. Giga-max motor, with 2.5 times* the motor torque and 38kg of practical winding endurance. The drive power that combines overwhelming speed and power is supported by a reinforced gear system that incorporates Shimano's superior durability and attention to detail. The drag force, which is the decisive factor in a fight with an ultra-large fish, reaches an astonishing 43kg, making it Shimano's most powerful ever for reeling in huge fish with unparalleled power.

The Hagane body, a highly rigid metal body, houses this astonishing power. The body is protected from heat generated by the drag section by means of a heat dissipation system, enabling the angler to fight for long periods of time. The 80/92mm long handle makes it easy to reel in the fish when fishing near the boat's edge.

The strongest and largest ever Shimano power reel. The BEASTMASTER MD 12000, a "true beast" boasting power and speed never before experienced, marks a new chapter in big game and deep sea fishing.

GIGA MAX MOTOR is only available on the BEASTMASTER series. The greatest feature of this motor is that it is a brushless structure motor without brushes made of carbon or copper, which are employed as one part that conducts electric current, so there are no parts that wear out and it has a long service life. At the same time, it also has the advantage of being able to deliver strong power even at high temperatures, when performance tends to deteriorate. The BEASTMASTER MD 12000 is equipped with an upgraded GIGA MAX MOTOR that has been enlarged to achieve overwhelming power and speed. Motor torque achieved an astonishing 2.5 times*. The wind-up power and speed tests also recorded unparalleled speed and strength. From the moment you wind it up, you will experience a new dimension of motor power.

Heat dissipation system: Improved heat dissipation and body reinforcement.
Improved heat dissipation in the side plate section. During a long, high-load extreme fight, the temperature of the side plate section rises if the drag is allowed to slip for a long period of time. BEASTMASTER MD 12000 uses aluminum for some of the side plates, which improves heat dissipation by 60%* and strengthens the body.


Enhanced Gear System.
Gear system with ball bearings for amazing durability. The gear system has been significantly strengthened, including bearing support for the reduction gears, to achieve a threat of durability. The synergistic effect with the NEW GIGA-MAX MOTOR provides unprecedented winding strength, speed, and stability. This is a reinforced gear system for long-lasting battle along with a brushless structure motor that boasts high durability.


80/92mm long handle.
When using a large 200-300 bait for live-lining, manual reeling with the handle is the standard operation after frequently repeatedly taking up the bottom or reeling in a large fish near the boat's edge with an electric motor. The 80/92mm long handle allows for powerful hand-winding without compromising a single moment*. The specifications have been carefully designed for fighting with large fish.
*Handle length can be changed between 80mm/92mm.
