  • Bearings 4+1

  • Weight, 2000 model 220g, 3000 model 250g
  • Ratio, 2000 - 6.0:1, 3000 - 6.2:1
  • Line capacity, 2000 - 0.14mm - 170m, 3000 - 0.25mm - 210m

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.
