The Shimano FX Spinning Reel features a Propulsion Line Management System that provides longer casting distances and prevents backlashes and wind knots from forming. For a manageable cast, Varispeed Oscillation technology ensures an even line lay. The Fluidrive II gear increases the efficiency of the retrieve, while Dyna-Balance technology enhances sensitivity and smoothness. Super Stopper II technology utilizes a one-way roller bearing that eliminates back-play. This incredible, affordable reel will quickly become your favorite for walleye and smallmouth fishing.

  • Dyna-Balance
    • This feature eliminates wobble during the retrieve by counter balancing the rotor to enhance sensitivity and smoothness. By using computer balancing, an approach similar to car tire balancing, we are able to redistribute the rotor weight to create smooth rotation and eliminate vibrations.
  • Fluidrive II
    • Building upon the successes of Fluidrive, Fluidrive II features a large master gear polished using a wrapping process, increasing the efficiency of the retrieve.
  • Power Roller
    • Line twist arising from repeated casting and retrieving is reduced by as much as 50% on reels equipped with the Power Roller line twist reduction system. Power Roller's special grooved design assures the line will be wrapped on the spool to minimize unwanted loops and twists during the cast.
  • Propulsion Line Management System
    • The most obvious component of the Propulsion Line Management System is the new Propulsion spool lip design. Through tens of thousands of casting tests and computer simulations it has been determined that this new spool lip design provides longer casting distances than a standard spool lip design while preventing backlashes and wind knots from forming.
  • Super Stopper II
    • Uses a one-way roller bearing that eliminates back-play. This provides the angler with instant hook setting power.
  • 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.
  • Varispeed
    • Normal oscillation systems use a constant rotation of the oscillation gear that, when translated to the cam, provides an inconsistent spool speed. This results in line lay that stacks at either end of the spool. By using an oval oscillation gear, we are able to alter the speed of the oscillation cam to provide a consistent spool speed. This results in an even line lay that provides excellent castability and manageability.

Plastic...Need I say more 
Pros: price
Cons: plastic
Best Uses: children
Comments: I wouldn't recommend, the price is right, the brand name is right, but the reel just doesn't deliver. The exterior reel body or base is made of plastic and broke the first time I went out and had the pole leaning against the back of my pickup and fell over. The reel still works, but plastic is plastic and you get what you pay for.
