The Shimano Stradic FK has stepped away from its iconic
white colour and been reborn as a completely new reel, both technically and
cosmetically. This reel is part of Shimano’s Hagane design concept, which aims
to make reels smooth and durable, thanks to the company’s unique metalworking
Strength & Durability
The Stradic FK is small and light for better control, but
still amazingly strong. The durable Hagane gear in the Shimano Stradic FK
provides excellent efficiency and strength. The stiff hybrid XGT-7 graphite and
aluminium body also creates the perfect protection and support for the X-Ship
X-Ship reels like the Stradic FK have a double
bearing-supported pinion gear. This offers extra torque, since the 2 shielded
A-RB ball bearings eliminate gear twist and rotor flex when fighting a fish. The
screw-in handle also minimises the play and loss of energy, because it's in
direct contact with the gears.
The Stradic line is famous for its smooth drag. The waterproof front drag on this model has a fine, controlled adjustment. The Rigid Support Drag eliminates any deviation of the spool when set to minimum drag.
Shimano Stradic FK Model Comparison
The Stradic FK 2500 has a bigger line capacity than the 1000 and retrieves 4 inches more line per crank despite only weighing 40 grams more. The maximum drag on the 2500 is only 4lb less than the 4000, but 13lb more than the 1000, which makes the 2500 more suited to bottom fishing than the lighter model.
