Description

Shimano Sustain FG Spinning Reels feature Shimano's X-Ship reel technology which provides rigidity and a tremendous amount of cranking power. By using a large diameter drive gear and moving the pinion gear closer to the center of the drive gear Sustain FG Spinning Reels provide 20% more power. The pinion gear is supported by two A-RB ball bearings providing a smooth, almost effortless retreive while eliminating pinion gear twist and rotor flex common in most spinning reels.

Sustain FG Spinning Reels also feature Magnumlite CI4 Rotors designed to reduce resistance on rotation and to add overall strength. The waterproof Rapid Fire Drag system allows anglers to quickly adjust the drag to the ideal setting during the fight.

With other standard features such as the Paladin Gear Durability Enhancement and the Propulsion Line Management System, Shimano Sustain FG Spinning Reels offer anglers a true state-of-the-art experience, ready for any freshwater or saltwater challenge.

Sustain a perfect bonefish spinning reel....

About Me:

I fished for bones with the 3000 Sustain on an 8-1/2' medium action St. Croix V steelhead rod... in the Bahamas... This rig w/ 12# Nanofil line will cast a 1/4 oz jig out of sight, or a shrimp on a #2 hook with a small slip lead. The long rod is the closest feel to a fly rod you can get with spinning gear. The 3000 reel will hold enough line for the first run of a 6# bone in 18" of water, might go to a 4000 for safety though... got really close to spooling it. Can't get a better bonefish spinning outfit for under $600.
Pros: ease of long casts
Cons: None
Best Uses: light lures, fast fish
Great bonefish reel

On an 8-1/2 foot St Croix V NSi medium steelhead rod with 12# Berkeley Nanofil translucent line, the 3000 Sustain reel is EXCELLENT for bonefish on the flats of Abacos, Bahamas.  Will throw a 1/4 oz skimmer jig out of sight.  Haven't been spooled yet... but would consider the 4000 for fish larger than 5#!!!

Pros: Exceptional drag for fast, long running fish.
Cons: None
Best Uses: All medium spinning needing substantial, light line capacity and smooth drag

i gave two 2500 series reels to my son Alex for a belated birthday gift. Speed of shipment and the overall quality of the reels far than exceeded his and my expectations ! They worked flawlessly in the winter temps in Northern Florida (low 30's) catching flounder and speckled trout with smooth performance without fail....I will be getting more shortly for the Spring fishing turn on in March.
Pros: Reliable, Overall quality
Cons: Wish i owned more
Best Uses: All around fishing
