Shimano Sedona 2500 FI Spin Reel
The iconic Shimano Sedona has stepped up a gear for 2017 with the new FI series. In the pursuit of engineering excellence, Shimano has again raised the standard with the incorporation of the Hagane cold forged gear. With 6 models in the series ranging from 1000 up to 5000 sizes, all feature 3+1 bearings and the drag output varies between 3kgs and 11kgs depending on the model. The Sedona FI represents exception value at a price point that is accessible to all anglers.

AR-C Spool - Through tens of thousands of casting tests and computer simulations, it has been determined that the AR-C spool lip design produces longer casting distances than a standard spool lip, while preventing backlashes and wind knots from forming. It also allows the line to ﬂow off the spool in smaller loops during the cast, which means less slap on the stripper guide. This results in longer casts with less friction. A spool designed with a V-shape spool lip ensures the line comes off the reel in smaller loops, for longer, more accurate casting.
Dyna-Balance - The waterproof Digital Control system is self-energising: it recharges with each cast and needs no battery or other power source. During the initial moments of the cast, the energy generated by the rotation of the spool is stored in the Digital Control circuit board, which powers the Digital Braking System on subsequent casts.
G Free Body - G Free Body technology has been developed to shift the reel’s center of gravity closer to the rod. By moving the center of gravity closer to the anglers hand position, the G Free Body helps to reduce fatigue and enhance casting comfort.
Hagane Gear - With amazing strength and durability, the HAGANE Gear is at the very heart of the reel. Shimano, through the application of state-of-the-art technologies, gives you the long-lasting smoothness and pleasure that you feel when you first use a reel, over and over again. No cutting work is applied to the teeth of the drive gear. Instead the entire surface is calculated in minute detail by special 3D design and then formed by Shimano’s cold forging technology. The result is assured resilience. It’s the fruit of Shimano’s inexhaustible pursuit for durability; the strength and power of forged metal continues to represent the fundamental concept of Shimano reels.
Varispeed II - Superior aircraft-grade Super Duralumin material. A7075 alloy is used for high strength, low weight as well as coating of Black Almite for scratch and corrosion resistance.
