The latest evolution in the Stradic range brings anglers into the next generation of fishing. This evolution brings with it improved casting, smoother reeling and increased durability, meaning this generation of Stradic outperforms all its predecessors.
For the first time in the Stradic class, the reel now features Silent Drive a seamless gear engagement. From the whole-body design to the most intricate parts of the drive train, including the drive gear, wormshaft, wormshaft pin and wormshaft gear, every piece has been carefully reviewed, and the smallest clearance gaps and wobbles have been eliminated to the highest tolerances.
Micromodule Gear II is also a feature that has evolved with the most advanced tooth
surface design to create the ideal gear tooth shape. This reduces noise and creates
The Stradic FL series incorporates Long Stroke Spool for better casting distance while durability has been further improved with increased gear strength and X-Protect Water Resistance. By combining the internal water repellent and the labyrinth structure, X-Protect Water Resistance achieves performance that can repel water without losing the lightness of rotation. This features in the line roller section and the roller clutch assembly(anti-reverse). As a result, the durability of the line roller has been improved more than five times (compared to our conventional product).
Upgraded and robust Hagane Gear has become the cornerstone of many of Shimano’s finest spinning reels. With Shimano’s own precision cold forging technology, the new Stradic has improved gear durability and is equipped with a newly designed Hagane gear with an equivalent strength to the upper model.
The Stradic’s body has likewise been looked at with the use of G Free technology that has been developed to shift the reel’s centre of gravity closer to the rod. Having the centre of gravity closer to an angler’s hand position reduces fatigue and enhances casting distance. Couple this with the Hagane body that is a lightweight metal body that suppresses impact under extreme loads and power loss due to deflection and twisting and the latest Stradic is packed with features.
With four models in the Stradic FL range, light line anglers will rejoice. Finesse anglers chasing Redfin, Trout, Estuary Perch, Bass, Whiting and Bream will adore the 1000 size.Anglers chasing more substantial targets such as mulloway, snapper, Murray Cod and even Barra will love the size and performance of the largest 5000 Stradic – essentially there is a Stradic to meet your fishing needs
