Manufacturer: Shimano

Shimano Stradic FL is already a well known and highly appreciated spinning reel which is used by hundred of thousands anglers, all over the world. Already for years and years, all these anglers have the same experience about Stradic: strong and reliable, a reel which will never let them down. The new Stradic FL - successor of the FK - will of course carry this same identity: strong and reliable.

However, there are some new exciting features on the FL: 1. Rotation Smoothness (MicroModule II, Silent Drive) 2. Durability (Increased Hagane Gear strength, X Protect) 3. Casting Performance (Long stroke spool). This proposition makes the Stradic FL the ideal all-round spinning reel. It can be used for any type of freshwater fishing and is very suitable for ways of fishing where reliability and strength are important (river fishing, big fish, bigger lures). At the same time this reel is an ideal choice for saltwater inshore fishing. Because the versatile range with many sizes and gear ratio’s, there will be always a suitable Stradic for every angler.


  • Spinning reel
  • Hagane gear: Produced by Shimano's coldforging technology, without the need for additional machining. This delivers a longlasting smoothness, strength, lightness and power at the very heart of the reel. Traditional diecast, machined gears are less durable under heavy loads.
  • X-Ship: Is a combination of features that work together to create much greater efficiency. By positioning the pinion gear close to the centre line of the large diameter drive gear, more power is transferred from the handle to the rotor. The pinion gear is also supported by two Shimano ARB roller bearings. This creates more stability.
  • MicroModule II: Improved Micro Module gearing, making the reeling extreme smooth.
  • Hagane Body: Produced from highrigidity aluminium or magnesium. This creates stiffness and impact resistance, while at the same time eliminating flexing of the body. The result is a rocksolid housing and support for the moving internal gearing and greater efficiency throughout the reel.
  • Silent drive: Removed clicking sound and handle play and overall improved smooth reeling.
  • X Protect: The contact type triplelip structure is introduced to the roller clutch, the pivotal point concerning water resistance. In this structure, the first lip prevents water from entering through the space between the rotor and the body. In addition, the special grease between the second and third lip  where it makes contact with the rotor collar located at the upper part of the roller clutch  not only resists water from entering but also minimizes friction resistance. Without jeopardizing the silky smooth rotation capacity, the vital feature of Stella SW, exceptional water resistance, has been achieved to withstand the crashing and splashing of waves and spray.
  • G Free Body: This technology has been developed to shift the reel’s centre of gravity closer to the rod. This has been achieved by moving the worm shaft oscillation mechanism 19 mm from the bottom of the reel to the top. By moving the centre of gravity closer to the anglers hand position, the G Free Body helps to reduce fatigue and enhance casting comfort.
  • ARC Spool: Patented spool design with an angled spool lip. This design enables the line to leave the spool with less friction and in smaller coils resulting in longer more accurate casts. ARC spools are proven to reduce backlash and wind knots when using braid.
  • One Piece Bail: The one piece bail wire has no gap for line to snag on during normal operation. Made of Stainless Steel, it reduces friction and allows the line to get onto the line roller quicker.
  • Long Stroke Spool: The long stroke spool has longer stroke compared to conventional spool designs. This longer stroke specification results in greater casting distance.
  • Line lay: Aerowrap II provides troublefree and long distance casts
  • Bearings: 6 + 1
  • Spool material: Cold forged aluminium
  • Body material: Aluminium
  • Waterproof drag
  • Handle: Screw in machined aluminium single handle
