Shimano’s new Stradic FK won Best in Show for freshwater reels at ICAST 2015, but anyone who knows the Stradic line knows this is a crossover reel that is at home on saltwater as it is on fresh.
The Stradic FK has a Hagane cold forged drive gear gear that when combined with Shimano’s X-Ship gear support technology provides a smooth, powerful and durable reel.
