Shimano Stradic FM Spinning Reels - The Legendary Legacy Continues

Step up your fishing game with the Shimano Stradic FM Spinning Reels, a true testament to Shimano's unwavering commitment to innovation and design excellence. With a rich history spanning over two decades, the Stradic name has been synonymous with quality and performance, setting the standard for spinning reels in the industry. Whether you're a freshwater enthusiast or an inshore saltwater angler, the Stradic FM offers an array of models tailored to your needs, ready to enhance your fishing prowess.

Cutting-Edge Technologies for Unrivaled Performance

At the heart of the Stradic FM lies the groundbreaking InfinityXross gear tooth design, a marvel derived from Shimano's flagship Stella reel. This innovation optimizes surface contact and meshing between the drive and pinion gears, ensuring unmatched efficiency, reduced stress points, and enhanced gear durability. Pair this with the robust Hagane cold forged gearing and MicroModule II technology, and you'll experience silky-smooth turns of the handle that remain consistent year after year.

Feel the power as you crank your way to victory with the Infinity Drive technology, offering enhanced cranking power under load. When the battle intensifies, rely on the improved Dura Cross Drag system, delivering the same smoothness as felt drags with an astounding tenfold increase in durability. This drag system is perfect for delicate lines and those heart-pounding encounters with high-velocity pelagic species.

Innovations that Enhance Your Experience

Experience hassle-free angling with the newly introduced Anti-Twist Fin, a smart addition that prevents line snags and keeps your line elevated for quicker hooksets. The G-Free Body technology shifts the center of gravity closer to the reel seat, reducing fatigue and enhancing casting comfort.

The One Piece Bail design ensures smooth line flow, reducing friction and tangles for uninterrupted casting. Plus, with Shimano's X-Protect technology, your reel remains resilient against water intrusion, safeguarding its performance for countless seasons.

Shimano Technologies:

  • Hagane Gearing: Cold-forged gearing for exceptional strength and durability, ensuring smooth performance from first use to long-term enjoyment.
  • MicroModule II Gear: State-of-the-art gear design makes use of smaller gear teeth and more of them, which results in a more efficient gear train and much smoother retrieve.
  • X-Ship: Eliminates friction between the spool shaft and gear which translates to better casting performance and increased gear durability.
  • Hagane Body: A reel body with high rigidity, which virtually eliminates body flexing due to its stiffness and impact resistance. It's efficiency through strength.
  • InfinityXross: The load on the gear teeth themselves is spread apart horizontally on a larger surface area, creating more efficiency, mitigating potential stress points, and improving overall gear durability.
  • Infinity Drive: Drastically reduces rotational torque, constructing a reel which can actively wind under heavy loads.
  • Dura Cross Drag: Utilizes cutting-edge materials woven into a unique pattern over the standard drag washer. This drag has felt like smoothness, with ten times the durability to counter blistering, high velocity runs for seasons to come.
  • Silent Drive: Reduces spool vibration and noise during casting, resulting in quieter and smoother rotations with minimal play.
  • Anti-Twist Fin: Enhanced line management for more effective fishing.
  • G-Free Body: Reduces fatigue and enhances casting comfort.
  • Long Stroke Spool: Results in the line having to change direction while coming off the spool fewer times during a cast, resulting in less turbulence going through the guides for a smoother and longer cast.
  • S A-RB Bearings: Undergo the same anti-corrosion process as Shimano's A-RB Bearings, with the addition of shields on both sides of the bearings to reduce the possibility of salt, dirt, or other foreign objects inhibiting the bearing's rotation.
  • One Piece Bail: A seamless design that allows the line to run unimpeded to the line roller. Reducing friction and mitigating line tangles is the name of the game.
