The Shimano Sustain FJ Spinning Reel is a head-turner for more than its looks! Shimano re-examined and redesigned the Sustain. One of the strongest reels in the MagnumLite series, the Shimano Sustain rotor is revamped for light start-up rotation, faster hook sets, and increased sensitivity. The FJ's aluminum HAGANE Body holds sturdy against larger game fish when retrieving line. Even though the Shimano Sustain FJ is lighter than its previous version, casting distance improves due to the Long Stroke Spool. Smooth reeling performance is brought about through the Micro Module II Gearing System in conjunction with Shimano's HAGANE Gear and SilentDrive mechanisms. This spinning reel is a head-turner – it's strong, sensitive, and good-lookin' to boot! You'll be able to turn both inshore and freshwater fish with a Shimano Sustain reel!

  • Micro Module Gear II
    • State-of-the-art, gear tooth surface designs are further advanced through Shimano's exclusive manufacturing technology. The drive gear and pinion gear surfaces have been analyzed from the ground up in pursuit of perfection.
  • X-SHIP
    • 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 is eliminated. This will enhance the casting performance of the reel with lighter lures and allow for longer casts.
  • CI4+
    • CI4+ is an advanced version of the original CI4. This highly technical carbon material maintains 2.5 times more rigidity than CI4. While improving lightness and rigidity, the body and rotor are further reduced in size and weight.
  • MGL Magnumlite Rotor
    • The Magnumlight Rotor is designed to improve overall balance. The MGL Rotor achieves a 14% reduction in rotational inertia to increase sensitivity. The evolution of rotors is not limited to just reduced weight. When compared to conventional models, the rigidity for the MGL Rotor is up to 30% higher and contributes to enhanced drag performance.
  • Silent Drive
    • From the fundamental, whole-body design to the most intricate parts of the drive train, including the drive gear, wormshaft, wormshaft pin, and wormshaft gear, every piece has been carefully reviewed. The smallest clearance gaps and wobbles have been eliminated to the highest tolerances, ultimately creating an overall quieter and smoother reel operation.
  • 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 angler's hand position, the G Free Body helps to reduce fatigue and enhance casting comfort.
  • Propulsion Line Management System
    • The most obvious component of the Propulsion Line Management System is the Propulsion spool lip design. Through tens of thousands of casting tests and computer simulations, it has been determined that this spool lip design provides longer casting distances than a standard spool lip design while preventing backlashes and wind knots from forming.
  • Rigid Support Drag
    • By strengthening the spool support of the main shaft, the play and fluctuation of the spool during drag operation are suppressed, allowing smooth drag delivery even under high load.
  • S A-RB
    • These bearings have been through the same process as Shimano's A-RB bearings, but feature shields on both sides of the bearings that reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting the bearing's rotation.
  • Cross Carbon Drag
    • This drag material provides a wider range of drag settings, along with the smoothest Shimano drag performance ever.
  • X-PROTECT
    • By combining Shimano's water-repellent coating with a water-channeling labyrinth construction, X-PROTECT provides high-level water resistance without sacrificing light gear and rotor rotation.
  • HAGANE Body
    • The HAGANE Body is a metal reel body with high rigidity. The body stiffness and impact resistance virtually eliminate 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 continue to represent the fundamental concept of Shimano reels.
  • Manufacturer's one-year limited warranty
