SHIMANO STRADIC FK XG FIXED SPOOL REELS
The new Stradic FK utilizes Shimano’s latest technology while drawing on ways of the past. Hagane cold forged drive gear gear combined with X-Ship provides a smooth, powerful and durable reel. The sleek G-Free body provides a better weight balance to reduce fatigue. Every part has been designed to improve the anglers experience on the water.
Becuase the Stradic FK is designed for both freshwater and saltwater anglers Shimano put extra work into enhancing durability in all environments, and the Stradic FK features "Coreprotect" elements including a protective coating that causes water to bead on the surface to prevent water from flowing into the small crevices near the roller clutch area. The body area is also protected through a series of seals and a flat body joint with the Coreprotect treatment. As a final precaution the anti-reverse switch has been completely removed from the body to eliminate another possible point of entry for contaminants.
