AX® 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 Stopper® II
    Super Stopper II anti-reverse uses a one-way bearing that eliminates backplay. This provides the angler with instant hooksetting power. In some reels, the Super Stopper II 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.

No doubt.
First, this reel is mounted on a Penn Inshore Squadron 7ft med rod. My first trip I landed a slightly smaller Bonnethead. This was my second trip yesterday and the reel got put through the paces. This puppy was in excess of 4 ft. The drag got a workout and performed flawlessly. Have no doubt about it, this reel can perform, It cast very nicely, retrieve is very smooth and is just the right weight for all day fishing without tiring you out. Holds up to salt water just fine so long as you do a proper rinse down when finished for the day, but i generally do a breakdown cleaning and lube twice a year anyway since I fish year round. Loaded with 30 lb. Spiderwire Glow-vis braid with several yards of 12 lb mono backing. The reel has proven itself, just writing to remove any doubt and answer any questions you may have about this Shimano Ax4000fb. You do not need a $200-$300 rig to catch fish. Always check your knots.
ProsPrice. Oversize line roller works exceptionally well. Comfortable weight . Drag works flawlessly.
ConsNone yet.

More For Less.
I bought 3 of these Shimano AX Spinning Reels for the kids for use when we go bait fishing for Brown and Rainbow Trout In the lakes of central Victoria. I was so surprised at what kind of smoothness and just plain quality goes into these bargain priced reels from Shimano. I bought another one and keep it loaded with line inside the lifejacket compartment of my 4.3 meter Tinny and am always ready just in case of a REEL emergency. The kids have Power Baited Dozens of 10 to 25 inch trout with their Catanna Rod/ AX Reel combos and the reels are still functioning amazingly well.

can it take the strain of big fish - Northern/ Salmon in the subzero ice fishing conditions?
It should be able to handle those conditions. We have not had any feed back from people using it for ice fishing, so we cannot say for sure. As for the drag, it is plenty strong.

can it take the strain of big fish - Northern/ Salmon in the subzero ice fishing conditions?
Yes, it can handle large fish. The drag is plenty strong. As for standing up to subzero ice fishing, we have not had feedback from other ice fisherman about this reel. It should be fine.
