Shimano Ultegra FC

From £133.60 Incl. 24% VAT
Manufacturer: Shimano

The new Shimano Ultegra FC is the ultimate evolution of one of Shimano's most popular mid-priced reels. Containing many of the latest technical features found on top-of-the-range Shimano reels like Stella, at a price that defies reality, the new Ultegra FC range offers remarkable value. You will find suitable sizes from finesse jig fishing to seatrout fishing and light pike fishing.

The combination of Hagane Gear, MicroModule II, X-Ship and Silent Drive ensures the very best winding performance, even under pressure, with remarkable smoothness that enhances the fishing experience. X-Protect technology prevents water getting into the moving parts of the line roller and roller clutch, extending longevity and delivering failsafe performance. For distance casting, the Long Stroke Spool design and AR-C Spool enables the line to flow more freely during the cast and the addition of a CI4+ Body reduces overall weight for less fatigue when fishing for extended periods.

Features:

  • 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.
  • MicroModule II: Improved Micro Module gearing, making the reeling extreme smooth.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Long Stroke Spool: The long stroke spool has longer stroke compared to conventional spool designs. This longer stroke specification results in greater casting distance.
  • CI4 Plus: CI4+ is an advanced version of the original CI4. This highly technical material is 2.5 times stiffer than CI4 and is used on many highend Shimano reels to increase weight savings. Use of CI4+ for the body and rotor also delivers remarkable stiffness for better reel efficiency.
  • S ARB: Shimano S ARB bearings are high corrosion resistant ARB ball bearings with an extra shield for improved protection against sand, salt or dust.
  • 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.
