Product Description
shimano The Stradic FJ Spinning Reel delivers unmatched smoothness during the cast and the retrieve that anglers around the world have come to appreciate. X-Ship allows closer and smoother gear meshing, providing rigidity and a tremendous amount of cranking power. Aluminum rotor, handle, spool, and sideplate resist corrosion. Paladin Gear Durability Enhancement uses a special cold-forged aluminum drive gear and a hardened brass pinion gear for maximum strength, durability, and smoothness in a lightweight gear. Propulsion Line Management System includes: Propulsion Spool Lip for longer casts with less friction, SR One-Piece Bail Wire for reduced chance of tangles or cuts to the bail arm, Power Roller III for reduced twist and line memory, redesigned bailt trip for reduced chance premature bail closure, and S-Arm Cam to keep the line in place and reduce risk of knots, loops, or tangles. Aerowrap II Oscillation for increased cast distance with less effort. SR Concept for smoothness, silence, and strength: SR 3D Gear, S-Rotor, and S- Guard. Fluidrive II polishes the gear surface to maximize tooth contact, increasing retrieve efficiency. Dyna-Balance eliminates wobble during the retrieve. Super Stopper II anti-reverse uses a one-way bearing to eliminate backplay, providing the angler with instant hooksetting power. 5 S A-RB (Shielded A-RB) Ball Bearings. Direct Drive Mechanism (Thread-In Attachment). WP Drag (Waterproof Drag). Maintenance port. Floating shaft. Repairable clicker. Approved for use in saltwater.

          Comments about Shimano Stradic FJ Spinning Reel, ST3000FJ:

          I own 2 Stradic 2500's, 2 Stradic 4000's and I bought the Stradic 3000 to replace an older 2500. I love them all. Really well made high quality reels with great drag and line handling. The one complaint (it's a big one) is that Stradic does not continue to make parts or service older reels that are out of production after a few years. That is why I checked off the con "difficult to maintain" and took a star away.
