For the HAGANE design concept of the Stradic FK Spinning Reel, Shimano has crafted premium features for anglers who demand toughness and durability in their tackle. The HAGANE body is a metal body with high rigidity, eliminating flex and transmitting the angler's strength into cranking power. The heart of the reel is the HAGANE Gear, providing power with a cold-forged drive gear and giving you the long-lasting smoothness and pleasure you feel when you first use a reel, over and over again.
The CF Aluminum Cold Forge spool also increases strength and the Power Roller II minimizes unwanted loops and line twists. S A-RB bearings feature shields on both sides of the bearing to reduce salt or sand build-up, and the Super Stopper II anti-reverse bearing eliminates back-play, providing unprecedented hook-setting power.
X-Ship improves gear durability and increases efficiency and power by using a double bearing-supported pinion gear. Other technologies include Aero Wrap II and the Propulsion Line Management System for longer casts, and Fluidrive II and Dyna-Balance work together to increase retrieve efficiency.
