Shimano Stradic FK Spinning Reel


The Stradic FK utilizes several of Shimano's latest technologies including X-Ship, Dyna-Balance and a Hagane body and drive gear.

X-Ship: Provides improved gear durability. By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with bearings, the pinion gear maintains precise alignment with the drive gear. This means the gears will stay in the same position under the heaviest loads. The added benefit is that friction between the spool shaft and gear are eliminated. This will enhance the casting performance of the reel with lighter lures, and allow for longer casts.

Dyna-Balance: This feature eliminates wobble during the retrieve by counter balancing the rotor to enhance sensitivity and smoothness. Using computer balancing, an approach similar to car tire balancing, allows redistributing the rotor weight to create smooth rotation and eliminate vibrations.

The Hagane body provides reel rigidity and impact resistance. The Hagane drive gear is cold forged for strength.

CoreProtect seals key areas to prevent water intrusion.
