Shimano Nasci 2500FB + Catana Nano 7'3" Combo
Shimano Nacsi 2500FB HG Spin Reel
Imagine taking all the best features of Shimano’s legendary Symetre, Aernos and Technium spin reels, combining them into one super spin reel series with some high tech’ accoutrements — well that’s what you get with the new Nasci spin. They feature X-Ship, where the pinion gear is supported by bearings for better cranking power and torque, Coreprotect, which is a water repellent surface treatment on the line roller and clutch roller, and they have G-Free bodies, so the centre of gravity is moved closer to the rod and the worm drive oscillates at a slower rate for more compact line lay. The big inclusion for a reel at this price point though, is the cold-forged Hagane Gear, where improved mesh transition leads to increased strength and durability.

Double anodised machine cut aluminium spool allows for increased line capacity and the Propulsion Line Management System for longer casting distance. This reel is suited for both fresh and saltwater action. Upgrade your gear today!
Hagane Gear is at the very heart of the reel and creates strength and durability. The entire cold-forging process is calculated in minute detail by special 3D design and the result is precision durability.
Propulsion Line Management System
The new Propulsion spool lip design provides longer casting distances than a standard spool lip design while preventing backlashes and wind knots from forming. It also allows the line to flow off of the spool in smaller loops during the cast which means less slap on the stripper guide.
By using an oval oscillation gear, Shimano is able to alter the speed of the oscillation cam to provide a consistent spool speed. This results in an even line lay that provides excellent castability and manageability.
Smooth, Silent and Strong. Smooth rotation and comfortable retrieve, couple with excellent drag performance and longer casting distance, leads to smooth flawless operation. Silent operation of parts within the reel's construction represents the attention to tight tolerances, reducing excessive noise and resulting in the silent operation of the reel. Strong, solid and functional construction leads to powerful torque and durable drivetrains.
Shielded Anti-Reverse Bearings
These bearings have been through the same process as the A-RB bearings, but feature shields on both sides of the bearings that reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting the bearings' rotation.
Aluminium Cold Forged Spool
These spools provide strength and durability over diecast aluminium or graphite spools.
The Shimano Catana Soft Bait Spin Rod is every bit as sharp as the sword it's named after. This rod is built with a tough graphite blank, Hardloy guides, split EVA butt assembly plus graphite reel seat. This rod is perfect if for flicking soft plastic lures for Snapper.

The Shimano Stradic 4000FK Spinning Reel is simply a delight to use, with better balance in the hand. It features the X-Ship, which not only makes the fishing experience much more enjoyable with ultra-smooth retrieves, but also gives you more grunt when cranking in those larger saltwater species.
Every part has been designed to improve your experience on the water. The sleek G-Free body provides a better weight balance to reduce fatigue. Plus, the presence of Coreprotect on the roller clutch, the drag, the body and the line roller, indicate that this reel is going to be perfectly at home in the world’s harshest environment — saltwater. Whether you're casting light Rapala lures to Trout, softbaiting the wash or micro-jigging for Snapper, the Shimano Stradic 4000 FK Spinning Reel eats it up!
Hagane Body and Gears
The new Shimano Stradic FK reel is enhanced by its Hagane Body and Hagane Gears, complementing the G Free Body design for better all-round performance. With amazing strength and durability, the Hagane gear is at the very heart of this reel - giving long-lasting smoothness and feel. Its entire surface is calculated in minute detail by 3D and formed by Shimano’s cold forging technology. And what's more, the reel’s rigid Hagane body is impact-resistant which virtually eliminates flexing – transforming each action into cranking power.
Together with the Hagane cold-forged drive gear, Shimano combined X-Ship technology which results in a smooth, powerful and durable reel. By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with bearings, the pinion gear maintains precise alignment with the drive gear. This means that the gears will stay in position under the heaviest loads. The added benefit is that friction between the spool shaft and gear are eliminated. This will enhance the casting performance of the reel with lighter lures, and allow for longer casts.
Here comes a new challenger! The Shimano Shadow X Nano Spinning Rod is made with high-quality components without the premium price tag. It features Nano graphite blank for durability and custom EVA grip for a more comfortable hold. Plus, it's fitted with Fuji reel seats, Fuji rubber gimbals and the new Fuji MNOG guides - components that you can only get from expensive rods. Get ready to do some serious fishing!

Micro Module II
State-of-the-art, gear tooth surface design and MicroModule Gear II, are further advanced through Shimano's exclusive manufacturing technology. The surfaces of the drive gear and pinion gear have been analysed and updated from the ground up in pursuit of perfection.
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.
New HAGANE Gear
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.
One Piece Bail
The one piece bail wire has no gap for the line to snag on during normal operation. Made of stainless steel, it reduces friction and allows the line to get into the line roller quicker.
By combining our water repellent coating and our specially designed, water channeling labyrinth construction, X-Protect provides high-level water resistance without sacrificing light gear and rotor rotation.
