- MICROMODULE II
Light and Smooth Reeling Micromodule gear II has evolved with the most advanced tooth surface design to create the ideal gear tooth shape. This reduces noise and creates smooth reeling.
Seamless Gear Engagement From the fundamental, whole body design to the most intricate parts of the drive train, including the drive gear, wormshaft, wormshaft pin and wormshaft gear, every piece has been carefully reviewed, and the smallest clearance gaps and wobbles have been eliminated to the highest tolerances.
Superior Saltwater Resistance By combining the internal water repellent and the labyrinth structure, it achieves performance that can repel water without losing the lightness of rotation. This features in the line roller section and the roller clutch assembly (anti-reverse). As a result, the durability of the line roller has been improved more than five times (compared to our conventional product).
Upgraded and More Robust Gearing Hagane Gear has become the cornerstone of many of Shimano’s finest spinning reels. With Shimano’s own precision cold forging technology, the new Stradic, has improved gear durability and is equipped with a newly designed Hagane gear with equivalent strength to the upper model.Hagane Body
Highly Rigid Body Design The Hagane body is a lightweight metal body that suppresses impact under extreme loads and power loss due to deflection and twisting.
G FREE BODY
G Free technology has been developed to shift the reel’s centre of gravity closer to the rod. Having the centre of gravity closer to an anglers hand position, we reduce fatigue and enhance casting distance.
NEW BAIL DESIGN
Providing a smooth feeling at the time of opening to make a cast. A wide opening and closing angle improves cast feathering. It also prevents sudden bail return.LOW FRICTION ROLLER CLUTCH
The NEW Stradic is equipped with a low friction and compact roller clutch. Resistance is reduced and the rotation is lighter than the conventional model.DRAG WASHER SELECTION
Sizes 2500 and below use 1 set felt drag washer system and the C3000 sizes above use a higher grade 3 set cross carbon washer system with excellent wear resistance.LONG STROKE SPOOL
The long stroke spool design improves casting performance when compared to the previous model due to improved line flow from the spool.AR-C SPOOL
A spool that has been lightened with Shimano’s original processing technology in order to balance the two goals of “without trouble” and “extending flight distance”. The special shape of the spool ring ensures the best line release
