Shimano Stradic FL C3000 HG Spin Reel

Stradic has always been a go to reel in the Shimano line up. Anglers who want a robust, strong reel with elements of finesse and above all else a high quality reel. Shimano have definitely delivered with the new Stradic FL. The new Stradic range comes very close to the same quality level as the Stella series. The new Stradic FL comes with the same durability, gear strength as the Twin Power XD, as well as, incorporating X-Protect for the prevention of water penetration.  With the addition of Micro-module ll and Silent drive and an overall lighter reel. The new Stradic is set to become the new bench mark in light salt water lure fishing.

The Compact 3000 sizes feature the same body design as the 2500 size, however, the reel possesses a larger line capacity making it ideal to fish both estuary and inshore environments.

HAGANE Body means this reel has a high rigidity and zero twist. The body stiffness and impact resistance virtually eliminates body flexing. The result transforms the anglers actions directly into cranking power. It's efficiency through strength.

Hagane Gear is at the very heart of the reel and creates strength and durability. The entire cold-forging process is calculated in minute detail by special 3D design and the result is precision durability.

G-Free Body
G Free Body technology has been developed to shift the reel’s centre of gravity closer to the rod. This has been achieved by moving the worm shaft oscillation mechanism 19mm up from the bottom of the reel to the top. By moving the centre of gravity closer to the angler’s hand position, the G Free Body helps to reduce fatigue and enhances casting comfort.

X-Ship stands for Extra, Smooth and High Power. By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with SA-RB bearings (on Stella models) and introducing a bigger drive gear, Shimano increased gearing efficiency and higher power. This results in a fishing reel with ultra-light handle rotation for less effort, even under heavy loads. This increases the efficiency of the reel, meaning it will stay smoother and perform at its peak for much longer

Shielded Anti-Rust Bearings are similar to A-RB, but feature additional shields for the ultimate in protection

AR-C Spool
Through tens of thousands of casting tests and computer simulations, it has been determined that the AR-C spool lip design produces longer casting distances than a standard spool lip, while preventing backlashes and wind knots from forming. It also allows the line to flow off the spool in smaller loops during the cast, which means less slap on the stripper guide. This results in longer casts with less friction. A spool designed with a V-shape spool lip ensures the line comes off the reel in smaller loops, for longer, more accurate casting.

The concept of CoreProtect is simple... to provide water resistance without creating a heavy rotation feeling. There are three key areas of the reel that require protection: the roller clutch, the body and the line roller.

One-Piece Bail
One Piece Bail allows the line to travel unimpeded to the line roller. Its seamless design reduces friction and the chance of tangles or cuts to the bail arm.

Cross Carbon Drag
This drag material provides a wider range of drag settings, for the smoothest Shimano drag performance ever.
