Like many of the spin reels in the huge Shimano range, the new FK Stradic reel has a list of inclusions that reads like the who’s who of reel technologies. You’re not simply buying a reel here, you are purchasing a complete fishing experience where the latest in cutting edge reel technology has been fused to the traditions of ‘made to last’. Made to last is a feature not widely available in just about any product since the early 60’s. Shimano’s incorporation of Hagan technology is at the heart of this contemporary press for reel longevity. Shimano accepts your fishing reel is likely to see some pretty harsh treatment, so the Shimano Stradic FK reel has been constructed to handle it, and handle it well into its fishing future.

The sizes 1000, 2500 and 3000 are considered small fishing reels and are incredibly lightweight. These diminutive creatures are finesse style spinning reels yet more than ready to deal out serious punishment to larger fish unaccustomed to doing as directed hen hooked through the mouth. The precision and sensitivity has to be felt to be appreciated. The action you’ll impart on your small lures will be unsurpassed and the feedback you get will be as though you are holding the lure in your hand. From vibes to unweighted plastics, you’ll dominate the rivers and estuaries with a level of precision in which you will soon become addicted. They are perfect for casting at Bream and Bass from you land based launch pad. Work a stream for Trout or drift a drop off for Whiting and Flathead.

Confidence is the primary feature. You can fish with a focus on the hunt knowing your equipment is more than up to the task. They are incredibly robust with a staying power as unfailing as yours. After a thousand casts or so, several larger than expected fish and a few bumps, your FK Stradic will beg for more. Get yours now before word gets out and the shelves are stripped
