Shimano Nexave FI Spinning Reel - Shallow Spool

The Shimano Nexave reel is a front drag spinning reel which can be used for all kinds of freshwater fishing.

The new Nexave FI is the updated version of the well-known Nexave FE. This new reel is a front drag spinning reel which can be used for all kinds of freshwater fishing, from fishing light to moderate lures for trout, perch, pike and zander up to match and feeder fishing. Due to the 3 shielded stainless steel ball bearings the reel runs smooth and as can be expected from a real Shimano reel, the drag is perfectly adjustable and will help you fighting big fish without any problems.

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

Let's try explain things here:

  • BFS = Bait (Baitcaster) Finesse System
  • DC = Digitally Controlled (fool proof!) casting system
  • 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.
