Shimano Stradic FK

For 2016, the engineers at Shimano redesigned the Stadic offering a more balanced, more efficient and most of all the strongest Stradic ever! Every part has been designed to improve the anglers experience on the water. The new Stradic FK utilizes Shimano’s latest technology while drawing on ways of the past. For inspiration, Shimano looked back to their Japanese roots deep in the ancient world's sword making mecca. Their heritage in expert metal transformation methods stands out above the rest, forging the purest and strongest steel alloys, Hagane.

Shimano Stradic FKFeaturing Shimano's Hagane design concept the Stradic FK is for anglers who demand durability and quality. The Stradic FK has Shimano's exclusive Hagane Gear (cold forged main gear), Hagane Body and Shimano's X-Ship precision cut gears for the smoothest cranking power.

 ▪ Hagane Gear - amazing strength and durability, the Hagane gear is at the very heart of the reel. Shimano, through the application of state of the art technology give the long lasting smoothness. No cutting work is applied to the teeth of the main drive gear. Instead the entire surface is calculated in minute detail by special 3D design and then formed by Shimano's cold forging technology. Shimano's inexhaustible pursuit for durability; the strength and power of forged metal continues to represent the fundamental concept of Shimano Reels.

 ▪ Hagane Body - the Hagane body is a metal reel body with high rigidity. The body stiffness and impact resistance virtually eliminates body flex. The result transforms the angler's actions directly into cranking power. It's efficiency through strength.

 ▪ New rotor design is very strong and rigid yet still lightweight for fluid cast and retrieve style fishing.

 ▪ The heart of the reel's oscillation system was updated for more efficiency and strength. Shimano's engineers have moved the oscillation system's worm gear to the other side of the main gear. It allows for a more compact body (lighter and stronger) that balances unlike any other reel. Also, this design maintains proper alignment and smooth powerful cranking ability and eliminates the possibility of gear slippage (which some reels on the market encounter) when flex occurs tight on a big fish.

The Stradic still offers the one piece bail wire with power roller to reduce line twists, machined handle for the lightweight power that Stradic is known for. Offering drag power range from 7-24 lbs.
