The Stradic from Shimano is a very popular reel with anglers around the world. The Stradic FL is the latest version of this model to be released, and it is stacked with the latest Shimano reel technology.

A significant change from previous models, is the introduction of a long stroke spool. This has resulted in an increased casting distance, which is proving very popular among anglers.

Another area of improvement is the corrosion resistance. Significant effort has been made in the design process to keep water out of the critical parts of the reel. This makes the reel perfect for use in harsh saltwater environments, and equally at home in freshwater. The Stradic is the perfect reel for kayak and jetski fishing, being able to handle the high exposure to saltwater.

The reel comes with 7 ball bearings, combined with a carbon drag system, producing a maximum drag of 7 lbs. – 24 lbs. depending on the reel size. This all combines to produce a very smooth, lightweight, high performance reel. Which is what expect from the much loved Stradic range.
