Shimano STC3000XGFL Stradic C3000 FJ Spinning Reel
Beefed up and jazzed up, the Shimano® Stradic® FL Spinning Reel sets a whole new performance standard for its price point, with extreme technology representing the latest goodies from Shimano – including SilentDrive, a total redesign of all moving parts to eliminate noise and vibration. As always, you get a whisper-smooth, strong, incredibly durable reel that can match up to any quarry in freshwater, as well as inshore saltwater. Its ultra-hard Hagane® cold forged drive gear is now twice as strong as before, for unstoppable power; it combines with Shimano's advanced MicroModule Gear II and X-Ship pinion gear-support system to ensure perfect gear mesh at all times, for unflinchingly smooth control and exceptional durability despite heavy loads. The sleek Hagane body prevents flex during the fight; X-Protect waterproofing helps maintain system smoothness and longevity; and the high-end Long Stroke Spool makes every cast as long and accurate as possible. 6 S A-RB shielded stainless steel ball bearings (plus 1 Super Stopper II Anti Reverse roller bearing) are backed by the high-efficiency Propulsion Line Management System. Additional performance features include vibration-eliminating Dyna-Balance®, line twist-reducing Power Roller II, SR-Concept, and friction-reducing Aero Wrap® II. 3000–5000 sizes feature rugged Cross Carbon drag for enhanced saltwater performance; 5000 size comes fitted with a power handle.
