Shimano Sustain FI Spinning Reel
The Shimano Sustain FI Spinning Reel is packed with advanced technologies and features for maximum performance. The Hagane gear and body provides the power and strength to handle a variety of fish fighting situations. This reel utilizes X-Protect technology, a water repellent coating to protect the rotor and gears from high-level water damage. The Shimano Sustain FI Spinning Reel features a 25% lighter magnumlite rotor for a light and smooth feel to enjoy hours of fishing without feeling any hand fatigue.
- The ultimate in lightweight design.
- Cross Carbon Drag
- This drag material provides a wider range of drag settings, along with the smoothest Shimano drag performance ever.
- G Free Body
- G Free Body technology has been developed to shift the reel's center of gravity closer to the rod. By moving the center of gravity closer to the anglers hand position, the G Free Body helps to reduce fatigue and enhance casting comfort.
- HAGANE Body
- The HAGANE Body is a metal reel body with high rigidity. The body stiffness and impact resistance virtually eliminates body flexing. The result transforms the angler's actions directly into cranking power. It's efficiency through strength.
- HAGANE Gear
- With amazing strength and durability, the HAGANE Gear is at the very heart of the reel. Shimano, through the application of state-of-the-art technologies, gives you the long-lasting smoothness and pleasure that you feel when you first use a reel, over and over again. No cutting work is applied to the teeth of the drive gear. Instead the entire surface is calculated in minute detail by special 3D design and then formed by Shimano's cold forging technology. The result is assured resilience. It's the fruit of Shimano's inexhaustible pursuit for durability; the strength and power of forged metal continues to represent the fundamental concept of Shimano reels.
- MGL Magnumlite Rotor
- The Magnumlight Rotor is 25% lighter, offering better balance and requiring 22% less inertia, making it easier to start and stop your retrieve for an overall smoother feel.
- 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.
- 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.

Beware !!! NO SPARE SPOOL - IT'S A PROBLEM
by Slava K. -
Great reel, awesome reel, but where is the spare spool? This is the first reel when I bought a reel that didn't have a spare spool! Many reviews suggest the Sustains from Shimano always come with a spare spool. A spare spool for Shimano Sustain is at least 100USD - 1/3 of the reel price! It feels like I got ripped off here.
