Shimano Stradic FJ Spinning Reels 4.9 5 11 11
Great reel right under a stella Great reel very smooth like a stella and durable at great price. February 17, 2015
PRO RATING Ive fished with just about every reel brand known, whether it be other shimano reels, penn, Okuma, Mitchell, etc. but this reel absolutely gets the job down the best out of all of them! I used to use the Shimano Sahara in the 2500 FE model, that was a really nice reel but couldnt with stand very frequent fishing after 3-4 years of use. I have had my Stradic 2500 FJ for 2 years now and its just as good as one straight out of the box! I would reccomend this to fellow pros and anyone I talk to, over every reel made, in my opinion the Stradic Fj series is the best! December 28, 2014
best spinning reel I have ever used Bought a Stradic 4000 to replace a broke down Abu Garcia Orra. I use it regularly skipping flukes under docks teamed with a seven foot Falcon bucoo. Absolutely awesome reel, I am going to buy another Stradic 2500 as a small lures reel to carry in the boat. You cannot beat these reels. November 29, 2014
Stradic I bought a Stradic from Dick about 17-18 years ago for about $55.00, in Canada it was $150.00 so even with thirty percent exchange on it, it was still a great deal. I have caught 25-30 pound Chinook Salmon on eight pound test in the Whirlpool Rapids at Niagara. These fish can strip the reel down to the last few feet, and it can still take an hour to finally land them. Even after all these years it is still a fine smooth real. I also have a Diawa Regal Z also 17-18 years old, and it is also a great reel. I would buy a Shimano any time. These reels will probable outlast me. I would give it five stars. October 18, 2014
Awesome reel! Before buying this reel, I had a Penn Battle in the 4000 size. I was having nothing but issues with the Penn. I took it back to Dicks and upgraded to the Stradic FJ. This reel is the best I have ever owned! It is built like a tank and has tons of power! If you need a good reel, look at the Stradic FJ. August 26, 2014
The finest reel I own The reel is as sweet as it gets just right for inshore fishing and can handile large fish well made I enjoy fishing with it I mostly ues it for lures casting made easy 4000 FJ is great with 10 pound test brade I tryed 30 but to heavy for casting far June 29, 2014
A great product worth buying to share with all my friends. Hello all, Shimano Stradic is one of my top products in my collection. I would recommend this product to all my friends. And, you should try it to find out yourself. You will not regret of buying this product ! Good luck and good fishing, Vinh August 6, 2013
Great fishing reel This reel is truly amazing I almost bought the EXO but figured it wasn't worth the extra $30 bucks. Dicks on the other hand really ticked me off I waited 15 minutes to talk to someone and gentlemen who came to help me knew nothing about fishing reels or anything of that nature. July 20, 2012
