Shimano Sustain FI 2500HG Spin Reel

The Shimano Sustain series has long been a favourite amongst anglers from around the world. By leveraging the benefits of the aluminium Hagane Body, the Sustain FI possesses the rigidity of a metal outer shell that maximizes impact resistance whilst eliminating body flex under load. To provide enhanced sensitivity, a Magnumlite Rotor has been fitted to the Sustain FI series and offers effortless low inertia rotation. This is a significant improvement on the previous Sustain FG model, as the bail trip lever has now been moved to the opposite side of the line roller, negating the need for heavy bail hold support. The cold forged Hagane Gear and X-Ship combine to provide a gearing system that is smoother and stronger than any other available in the market. This gives the reel a much smoother gear transition, but also unrivalled pulling power to handle larger predatory species.

HAGANE Body
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
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.

MGL Rotor
Magnumlite Rotor for effortless low inertia rotation.

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
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.

X-Protect
By combining our water repellent coating and our specially designed, water channeling labyrinth construction, X-Protect provides high-level water resistance without sacrificing light gear and rotor rotation.

S A-RB
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.

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.
