EFTTEX Awards 2015 - Best Fixed Spool Reel

Shimano Stradic FK HG

The extremely durable Hagane gear provides confidence in any fishing conditions.

The stiff hybrid XGT-7 and aluminum body creates enough stiffness to keep the power on the handle directed straight forward.

With its X-Ship system and shielded A-RB bearings, all internal parts run smoothly, giving this reel enormous cranking power and smooth rotation. The drag has a fine adjustment area and the Rigid Support Drag eliminates any wobbling of the spool when set to minimum drag.

The screw-in handle minimises the play and loss of energy because it’s in direct contact with the gears.

Price range: Between €101 and €200.
