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.

So what do all these letters and numbers mean?  I hear you say...

Let's try explain things here:

  • C = Compact body, slightly smaller than the standard
  • HG = High Gear, faster retrieve than the standard
  • XG = Extra Gear... even faster than the HF version, these letters don't determine size
  • S = Shallow spool, ideal for braid
  • DH = Double Handle
  • Ci4 = A lightweight material!
  • MGL -Magnumlite, a reel with components, often spool made from a lighter metal than others, 30% lighter than Ci4!
  • F or R = If the model name has F or R at the beginning, this is Front or Rear drag. The letter following the F determines the release age, so FK is newer than FJ. A little like the old car number plate system. 
  • 1, 2, 3000 etc = Determines the size which goes up with the number although the 2500 and 3000 are the same size, just the 3000 has a larger spool and sometimes different shaped handle... YES I know it is a bit confusing, but hopefully this helps a little in choosing the perfect reel for you.
