The Shimano Stradic has been a solid performer in the New Zealand market for many years now and this model upgrade is no different. Shimano's engineers have done it again by creating a more lightweight, compact yet powerful mid-priced spinning reel.

The Shimano Stradic 2500 FK HG Spinning Reel is simply a delight to use, with better balance in the hand. It features the 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.

Every part has been designed to improve your experience on the water. The sleek G-Free body provides a better weight balance to reduce fatigue. Plus, the presence of Coreprotect on the roller clutch, the drag, the body and the line roller, indicate that this reel is going to be perfectly at home in the world’s harshest environment — saltwater. Whether you're casting light Rapala lures to Trout, softbaiting the wash or micro-jigging for Snapper, the Shimano Stradic 2500 FK HG Spinning Reel eats it up!

Hagane Body and Gears
The new Shimano Stradic FK HG 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.

Together with the Hagane cold-forged drive gear, Shimano combined X-Ship technology which results in a smooth, powerful and durable reel. By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with bearings, the pinion gear maintains precise alignment with the drive gear. This means that the gears will stay in position under the heaviest loads. The added benefit is that friction between the spool shaft and gear are eliminated. This will enhance the casting performance of the reel with lighter lures, and allow for longer casts.
