FX FB Feature Details
  • Varispeed
    Normal oscillation systems use a constant rotation of the oscillation gear that, when translated to the cam, provides an inconsistent spool speed. This results in line lay that stacks at either end of the spool. By using an oval oscillation gear, we are 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.
  • Super StopperSuper Stopper anti-reverse uses a multi-stop ratchet that nearly eliminates backplay in the rotor for solid hooksets. The Super Stopper anti-reverse can be turned off to allow backreeling for special techniques and situations.
  • Dyna-Balance
    This feature eliminates wobble during the retrieve by counterbalancing the rotor to enhance sensitivity and smoothness. By using computer balancing, an approach similar to car tire balancing, we are able to redistribute the rotor weight to create smooth rotation and eliminate vibrations caused by the reel.
  • Power Roller II
    This 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.

Excellent smoothness and reliability
April 6, 2014
Shimano's FX FB reel is a good example quality which is demonstrated in the reel. The reel is smooth, durable and can be used in both fresh and saltwater. And if used, little maintenance is required. The reel is not very heavy and quite compact for a reel with many features.

Is this reel good for Surf fishing or hitting the inter-coastal canals?
Armando this is not the best reel for saltwater fishing, it does not have any protection from salt water. If you are looking for a great reel for canal and surf fishing take a look at the Stradic Fj.

how to maintain it???. Please show by video.
We do not have a video for maintaining this reel. Rinse it with freshwater after each use in saltwater. Wipe down the exterior of the reel with a clean cloth that has been sprayed with WD-40. For info on interior maintenance, please contact Shimano directly.
