Product Summary

Performing at its peak when needed, the Shimano Symetre FL Spinning Reel has the M Compact Body design, along with X-Ship technology for solid cranking power. The Symetre FL features the Varispeed II oscillation system that layers the line on the spool in two different speeds for excellent castability. Its Super Stopper II uses a one-way roller bearing that eliminates backplay and instant hook-setting. SR-Concept combines the concept of Reliance with all aspects of the S-Concept: Smooth, Silent, and Strong.

This spinning reel's S A-RB bearings are shielded on both sides, reducing the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting the bearing's rotation. CF Aluminum Cold Forge Spool produces increased strength and durability over diecast aluminum or graphite spools. The Symetre FL also includes Dyna-Balance technology that balances the rotor's weight to create a smooth rotation, Propulsion Line Management System contributes to longer casting distances, while preventing wind knots, and Fluidrive II has a large master gear polished using a wrapping process to better the efficiency of the retrieve.
