The Nexave FE spin reels represent great value for money for an entry-level series,
perfect for newcomers and kids who need the right start in fishing.
An XT-7 body keeps weight down, while 3 shielded stainless steel ball bearings and
1 roller bearing makes winding the single-piece aluminium handle as effortless as
can be. The drag is perfectly adjustable and will help you fighting big fish without any
Casting is enhanced with Shimano’s ARC Spool. This is a patented spool design
with an angled spool lip design that enables line to leave the spool with less friction
and in smaller coils resulting in longer, more accurate casts. ARC spools reduce
backlash and wind knots when using braid.
If you want to chase Bream or Whiting in the estuaries on lures or bait, try the smaller
1000 and 2500 sizes. If you are after bigger fish like flatties and snapper, the 4000
and 5000 might just be the right size for you. Chasing bigger fish like Barra,
Mulloway, Murray Cod, and offshore Snapper? Step into the largest reel in the range –
the 6000 and 8000.
Gear ratios range from 5.0:1 through to 6.2:1 depending on the model. The Nexave
FE series is available in 7 models from 1000 through to an 8000 model, giving
enormous scope for anglers looking for Shimano quality at an affordable price.
