What our customers are saying:


"If you are looking for a super quality reel that doesn’t break the bank - the Stradic FL is the one for you.
Lightweight, smooth and effortless" - John B on Oct 25, 2021

The Shimano Stradic is already highly regarded, household name in the world of spinning reels, used and appreciated worldwide by many top anglers. I defy you to find an angler who uses Shimano who does not know about the reputation that precedes this amazing front drag spinning reel from the company at the forefront of reel design and manufacture, Shimano! Like all it's predecessors who have gone before it, the brand new Stradic FL represents the same amazing build quality, slick appearance and value for money that we have come to expect over the decades of the Stradic's existence.

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.
