Shimano Stradic FL 4000 XG Spin Reel

Stradic FL Spinning Reel
Every couple of years it seems the Shimano technical people grab hold of the Stradic spin reel lineup and make a great reel even better. Well these reels continue that tradition — big time. Firstly, a reel of this standing couldn’t be without the new Hagane Body. This metal frame delivers high rigidity, so there’s no flexing when under load and no loss of cranking power either. This is complemented by the Hagane Gear system — not cut gear teeth, but 3D design cold forging for increased resilience and longer durability. The new Stradics have an additional SA-RB bearing and they’re all high 6:1 to 6.2:1 plus gear ratios, so cast lures will really motor on the retrieve. Aero Wrap II, the AR-C spool, One Piece Bail and G-Free Body all demonstrate that these reels are going to be are a repetitive caster’s delight to use, with better balance in the hand. While the new gen’ Stradics can be used just about anywhere, the presence of Coreprotect on the roller clutch, the drag, the body and the line roller, indicate that these reels are going to be perfectly at home in the world’s harshest environment — the salt.

The Extra High Gear (XG) Shimano Stradic FL 4000 XG Spinning Reel is ideal for a range of estuary and inshore environments. Weighing in at 260g and suited to using braided line from 15lb to 20lb and is designed to match rods in the 3-6kg up to 4-8kg line class. Featuring 6+1 bearings, a 6.2:1 gear ratio and an upgraded Cross Carbon Drag system with 11kg of power.

Hagane Body and Gears
The new Shimano Stradic FL4000 XG Spinning Reel is enhanced by its Hagane Body and Hagane Gears, complementing the G Free Body design for better all-round performance. With amazing strength and durability, the Hagane gear is at the very heart of this reel - giving long-lasting smoothness and feel. Its entire surface is calculated in minute detail by 3D and formed by Shimano’s cold forging technology. And what's more, the reel’s rigid Hagane body is impact-resistant which virtually eliminates flexing – transforming each action into cranking power.

Anti-Rust Bearings are made of Stainless Steel that has been through the A-RB process. At least 10 times more corrosion resistant than standard Stainless Steel ball bearings. Easy Maintenance-no shield design allows for easy flushing of debris and easy lubrication. Increased Bearing Speed-no shield design and lighter viscosity lubrication reduce friction and allow the bearing to spin faster and longer.

This reel features X-Ship, which not only makes the fishing experience much more enjoyable with ultra-smooth retrieves, but also gives you more grunt when cranking in those larger saltwater species. By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with S-ARB bearings and integrating a bigger drive gear, Shimano increased the gearing efficiency and power of this rod. This results in a fishing reel with ultra-light handle rotation.

Micro Module II
State-of-the-art, gear tooth surface design and MicroModule Gear II, are further advanced through Shimano's exclusive manufacturing technology. The surfaces of the drive gear and pinion gear have been analysed and updated from the ground up in pursuit of perfection.

Silent Drive
From the fundamental, 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.

One Piece Bail
The one piece bail wire has no gap for the line to snag on during normal operation. Made of stainless steel, it reduces friction and allows the line to get into the line roller quicker.

By combining our water repellent coating and our specially designed, water channeling labyrinth construction, X-Protect provides high-level water resistance without sacrificing light gear and rotor rotation.

Long Stroke Spool
The long stroke spool design improves casting performance when compared to the previous model due to the improved line flow from the spool.
