    Shimano FX® Front Drag Spinning Reel.

    The Shimano FX® Front Drag Spinning Reel is extremely affordable... but that doesn't mean it's some kind of stripped down, bare bones model.

    The truth is, the FX is a Shimano through and through with loads of exclusive Shimano features:
    • Graphite frame, sideplate and rotor for reduced weight
    • Diecast aluminum spool for casting performance and durability
    • Varispeed¿, an oval oscillation gear provides a consistent spool speed for an even line lay for excellent castability and manageability
    • Super Stopper II® multi-stop ratchet system minimizes back-play for hook setting power
    • Dyna-Balance® system works as in balancing a tire, counterbalancing the rotor to eliminate wobble during the retrieve
    • Power Roller® II is an oversized line roller that reduces twist from casting and retrieving and is enhanced with a tapered area on the support to help line get onto the roller quicker
    • No-Fail-Bail¿ bail spring will never ever break thanks to its strong, lightweight and totally non-corrosive graphite construction
    • Bio Grip Stem is ergonomically designed to prevent hand soreness and fatigue
    • Smooth, precisely calibrated drag system.
