SHIMANO STRADIC FK REEL (MEDIUM SIZES)
4000 and 5000 size reels are medium sized reels and are generally considered all-rounders. They’re great for just about all inshore applications and have the capacity to hit the beaches, ocean rocks and tackle light offshore work. For many, the tag of all-rounder has some negative connotations, the main one being, ‘jack of all, master of none’. The assumptions is, that to handle such a broad range of angling applications, compromise has had to be made. This view is misguided and usually attributable to the purist, blinkered in their own ideas as to what represents high end, specialist fishing. While just about all manufactures make and entry level all-rounder popular with the weekend dangler, there are a few manufacturers that recognise the significant value of a top shelf reel that can be pointed at fish across a range of environments.
The Shimano Stradic FK 4000 and FK5000 is a spin reel so blessed with the latest features that even the most discerning purist could not fault its phenomenal performance. You have all the sensitivity you need to cast the light lures, while at the same time enough grunt to wrestle a belligerent pig from his rocky sanctuary. With the Stradic FK, there is no compromise, simply broad access, where finesse and brute strength dance in perfect synchronicity to provide you unrivalled access to an astonishing array of species from a jaw dropping list of locations. You have all you need to tackle a flathead from a river hole, then follow it up with a 15kg Mulloway from a perfect surf side gutter. Perfection is assured, compromise a foreign language. Get yours now.
