The Shimano Stradic Spin Reel 2500FK has a metal frame that delivers high rigidity, so there’s no flexing when under load, and no loss of cranking power either. This is complemented by the Hagane Gear system with 3D cold forging for increased resilience and longer durability.
The new Stradics have an additional SA-RB bearing with a high speed 6:1 gear ratio, and 6 super-smooth ball bearings plus 1 roller bearing. The Aero Wrap II, the AR-C spool, 1-piece bail and G-Free Body all demonstrate that these reels are going to be are a repetitive caster’s delight.
While the new generation Stradics can be used just about anywhere, the presence of Coreprotect on the roller clutch, the drag, the body and the line-roller, indicate that these reels are going to be perfectly at home in the world’s harshest environment.
