Full Product DetailsBack to top

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.

  • CI4+
    • 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.
  • X-PROTECT
    • 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
    • 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   (from prior model)
Pros: Awesome reel
Cons: No spare spool
Best Uses: Jigging e.t.c.
Comments: 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.

Sustain FG 4000 (from prior model)
Comments: The sustain is the best spinning reel that I have ever used.

Sustain a perfect bonefish spinning reel.... (from prior model)
Pros: ease of long casts
Best Uses: light lures, fast fish
Comments: 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.

Great bonefish reel (from prior model)
Pros: Exceptional drag for fast, long running fish.
Best Uses: All medium spinning needing substantial, light line capacity and smooth drag
Comments: 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#!!!

too great a deal to pass (from prior model)
Pros: Reliable, Overall quality
Cons: Wish i owned more
Best Uses: All around fishing
Comments: 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: Smooth Drag System, Line Doesn't Tangle, Easy Casting, Smooth Reeling
Best Uses: Casting, Trolling
Comments: I live on a lake in Northern Minnesota. I wore out my old spinning reel (Shimano Symetry Spinning Reel)in 7 years. Decide to try a more expensive reel. The Shimano Sustain FE Spinning Reel works great and is very smooooooth.

The SA2500 is slightly smaller in size and has a smaller line capacity on the spool. The SA2500 size holds 200yds of 6lb monofilament and 140yds of 8lb monofilament. The SA3000 holds 230yds of 6lb monofilament and 170yds of 8lb monofilament.

This reel is perfect for steelhead fishing. Depending on the size of the rod you are using, the 3000 size should be a great choice.
