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, ST4000FJ:

    I have only used this Reel for about a month. This is the most expensive Reel I have ever purchased. It is so smooth , and perfectly balanced for my 6'6" inshore Rod.
    The drag is flawless , it is salt water rated and with braided line it casts 1/2 mile . I fish from a fishing kayak and it really is perfect for catching big Bull Reds. I ordered a second one.
