Shimano Stradic FK Spinning Reels are constructed with a Hagane body to provide stiffness and impact resistance to virtually eliminate body flexing. The Hagane gear gives you long-lasting smoothness, while the cold-forged spool provided strength and durability. These reels offer improved balance and weight to help reduce fatigue. Stradic FK reels are equipped with Shimano's Propulsion Line Management System with Aero Wrap II Oscillation, setting the standard for design and durability.

Stradic FK Spinning Reels feature Shielded A-RB Bearings and Fluidrive II technology for extremely smooth operation. The Power Roller greatly reduces line twist to minimize unwanted loops and prevent line tangles. Every part of each Stradic reel has been designed to offer anglers the best in performance and power.

  • Aero Wrap II
    • This two-speed oscillation system layers the line onto the spool in a crisscross pattern that reduces line-to-line friction for longer casts. AeroWrap reels utilize a patented worm gear design to move the spool upward quickly and downward slowly to wind the line in a precise pattern, reducing friction, and giving smoother, longer casting ability.
  • CF Aluminum Cold Forge Spool
    • These spools provide increased strength and durability over diecast aluminum or graphite spools.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • SR-Concept
    • The SR-Concept combines the new concept of Reliance with all aspects of the S-Concept: Smooth, Silent and Strong. The Reliance Concept, or R-Concept, means that dreams in reel design are now evolving into reality. The result of the use of the new S-R Concept in design is the development of many exciting new features.
  • Super Stopper II
    • Uses a one-way roller bearing that eliminates back-play. This provides the angler with instant hook setting power.
  • 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 are eliminated. This will enhance the casting performance of the reel with lighter lures, and allow for longer casts.

Near perfection in design and craftsmanship (from prior model)
Pros: ultra smooth operation, best drag of any spinning reel available, durable, nice looking
Cons: no spare spool, anti-reverse always on - no backreeling
Best Uses: many freshwater applications
Comments: The impression you get when you first try out one of these is that all aspects of the reel operate with perfect smoothness - the bail, drag, handle et c., everything is perfectly made. The drag in particular is incredibly smooth and finely adjustable - spinning reels are not generally known to be the best for long running line pulling fish but in my experience the Stradic drag in combination with the line roller on the bail arm will handle it. You do not get a spare spool, which is a little inconvenient. There is no switch to disable the anti reverse so no backreeling with this reel, but the superb drag makes up for this. The 1000 series is for near ultralight application, the 2500 and 3000s for normal bass and walleye fishing (3000 for stream steelhead) and the 4000 for salmon, musky et c. Worth the money I'd say.

Pros:
Cons:
Best Uses:
Comments: I bought this reel ( Stradic fj ) in the 1000 size for fishing for trout in mountain streams. This reel is very smooth operating. Perfect for using the small trout spinners I prefer. It's also smooth enough to work small baits like single salmon eggs and small garden worms through holes. This is my second Stradic FJ model as I was very impressed with the other larger model I purchased.

Smarter then a Fish
Old Angler (from prior model)
Comments: I have come to believe, "if you are serious about fishing you need good tools". My first trip with my Stradic was to Eagle Lake, Ontario. I fished hard for walleye but, caught nearly everything else. I was reeling in a 26" Northern I hooked on an 1/8 oz Jig, when a huge Musky grabbed it. In 30 minutes I fought that fish, on six pound line, I brought him to the side of the boat three time. The guide said it was 56"-58" and 45+pounds. The Stradic 1000 met the ultimate test: a super smooth drag which held up to 30 minutes max a abuse; smooth powerful line recovery under load; and dependability I fished the rest of the week with this jewel. I mounted this reel on a 7' Light action St Croix Rod. I have four Stradic Reels. I may be dead with in the next 20 years but, I bet these reels are still going strong

STRADIC ONLY (from prior model)
Pros: Will Handel ANY fish, Reliable, Easy Casting, Smooth Reeling, Durable, Smooth Drag System
Best Uses: Jigging, Trolling, Shore Casting, River Fishing, Ocean Fishing
Comments: I own Stradics from as far back as the 2nd generations and after a thousand battles they are ready for more. My latest purchase of a 2500 was to replace one that rest at the bottom of Lake Charleston in Ontario Canada. Keep it clean, keep it oiled and that's that. Take care of your line as well. Why people blame their reels for line twist is beyond me. Line is going to twist sooner or later for a number of reasons. So pull a few yards off from time to time and change it as needed. The best stories I have concerning my 2500's are 2 of the exact same. While fishing for Bass and Pike in Canada I laid into a few GIANT Muskies. First time I panicked. I figured between 8lb test and a bass reel I was screwed. I was so wrong. With just a tiny turn of the drag the fights began. 56" and 64" and the reel wasn't even warm. The second and larger fish I landed on a much stronger line and had steel leads for both as well. The first was only 4" though. Bottom line the Stradics didn't even hic-cup. Now ya can even take em to the beach, I will never own another reel unless it is a gift or won. The Carbon model? I've been fishing over 40 years now and never complained over an ounce or 2. If ya like it buy it but I'm staying old school.

great & durable (from prior model)
Pros: Durable, Smooth Drag System, Reliable
Best Uses: River Fishing
Comments: I've been an avid northwest salmon/steelhead fisherman for 40 years. The past 10, I've done a lot of float fishing bait and jigs. Most spinning reals don't hold up to the riggors of fighting big strong fish.It's not uncommon to land 8-10 Kings in one day. Many spinning will handle that - but that's only one day in a long season. This reel handles it and keeps on performing. Most others don't. In our area King salmon are required to be released. The 15 pounds of drag the 2500 offers is invaluable in getting fish to the bank while still strong enough to favor survival after release. This is a quality reel that, in my book is underpriced. Simply awesome. Money very well spent.

Comments: Fantastic reel. Really smooth, well engineered, and the maintenance port is a nice touch. I use mine for inshore saltwater fishing in south Louisiana and its perfect for reds and specks. This is the second Stradic I own. The first one is 10 years old and still works great. All I do to clean it after saltwater fishing is to wash it down with a hose.

Comments: I've been using this reel to cast small jigs and stickbaits for smallmouth, and I have to say it is the smoothest operating spinning reel I've ever owned. The drag is superb and the reel is very well built. I would recommend this reel to anyone who is in the market for a high performance spinning reel...
