Offering some of Shimano’s flagship technologies and uncompromising quality in a package that even the budget-minded angler can enjoy, the Shimano Nasci is an exciting new reel that both freshwater and saltwater anglers can make use of. Featuring Shimano’s HGN Gearing, the Shimano Nasci offers long-term gear durability not normally associated with spinning reels in it’s class. X-Ship technology is also employed in the Nasci. X-Ship makes use of a dual bearing-supported pinion gear that keeps precise alignment with the drive gear leading to a more connected feel under heavy loads, less friction between the spool shaft and gear, and years of dependable operation and performance.

Adding to the list of features is one rarely seen in a reel of this class. CoreProtect protects three critical areas of the Shimano Nasci - the roller clutch, the body, and the line roller from water intrusion. Couple this with the use of Hagane Gear which uses state-of-the-art manufacturing processes to produce an incredible durable gear system and you have a spinning reel that can take whatever you throw at it and continue to perform, all without breaking the bank.



Shimano Technology Found In Nasci Reels :
  • CoreProtect - The concept of CoreProtect is simple – to provide exceptional water resistance without creating any additional rotational resistance on the retrieve. The reel is treated at key areas such as the roller clutch, body, and line roller to resist water intrusion.
  • G-Free Body - G-Free Body technology enables the reel’s center of gravity to be moved closer to the center of the reel seat, and therefore the anglers hand position. This shift in weight and balance helps to reduce fatigue and enhance casting comfort.
  • Hagane Gear - Boasting amazing strength and durability, Hagane Gear is a process in which the gearing is calculated in minute detail and cold forged instead of being cut. This application of state-of-the-art technologies gives the angler reel smoothness from the first use through years of enjoyment.
  • Super Stopper - Super Stopper anti-reverse uses a one-way stainless steel roller bearing to eliminate back-play in the reel and provide the angler with instant power when setting the hook.
  • X-Ship - By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with bearings, the pinion gear remains in precise alignment with the drive gear and stays in the same position under even the heaviest of loads. This eliminates friction between the spool shaft and gear which translates to better casting performance and increased gear durability.

OK Budget Reel But Leaves a Lot to Be Desired
I have owned this reel in the 5000 sized since it was released. I have owned many other Shimano reels for the past 15 years, Daiwa, Abu, Penn and others. I usually buy the mid to flagship range reels but wanted to give this reel a shot to see what the hype was all about. I have to say that this reel is quite sloppy in the tolerences in the handle and knob. From day 1 it has always has had a geary lump on every 1/3 turn of the handle like an off kilter wheel. When reeling in bigger fish, the handle seems to have a lot of flex, so much so that i've felt I might break it. I've also tested the drag at ~18lb under controlled conditions and there is an uncomfortable amount of flex in the rotor. I love Shimano products but if you plan on using this reel for larger game (~10lb drag or higher), go with a more solidly built reel.
ProsBudget friendly
ConsA lot of flex in the handle and rotor Possible quality control Wouldn't use it for big fish or even close to it's stated drag numbers

This real rocks
This real is lighter than all my penns and is smoother I have been able to catch big snook and Jack ladyfish but my only downfall is that the handle does not go directly into the gears therefore I don't think it'll last as long as my penn spin fisher or my penn slammer

NASCI 3000
This is a fantastic, smooth reel for the price. I use it mostly for bass fishing along with some inshore for reds and strippers. It casts well, and the drag has enough umph to make it a good inshore reel. If you fish heavy grass/lily pads in freshwater and live close enough to the coast to fish inshore, I recommend the smaller NASCI sizes. It will be hard to find a better reel for at the $100.00 price point.

NASCI 5000
Just purchased thus reel and tried it out a few times. Works very well like most Shimano reels. Very smooth, and good balanced feel. I have yet to see how the drag system works on a big fish running. But overall it's a good reel for the price.

amazing. tough. smooth.
Had a chance to use this reel today in less than perfect conditions, snow on the ground, dodging ice flows and 30 degree water. This reel functioned in an environment that literally causes most reels to simply explode. This is the smoothest reel I have ever used, the gears are nothing short of amazing, SO SMOOTH, SO POWERFUL, JUST SIMPLY AMAZING! I plan on buying the 5000 size when I get the chance.
ProsEXTREMELY SMOOTHNESS, AMAZING DURABILITY, AWESOME FIT AND FINISH, AND TO TOP IT OFF, I LOVE THE BLACK AND SPARKLY BLUE COLOR. This will become a legendary reel.
ConsABSOLUTELY NONE!!!!!!

Good reel but one issue I found
Reel feels as smooth if not smoother then my fk Stradic, 2nd cast I had on this reel I hooked into a nice 28" red fish and functioned flawlessly reel was as smooth as could be. The only problem I found was flex in the body, not to say it's not going to last a long time but flex like that in a reel is never a good thing to have.
ProsEverything besides the body

Awesome Reel for the Price!!!
Bought this reel, the 2500 model, for light back bay fishing. Tackle Direct is my favorite saltwater fishing supplier. Stopped by the showroom while in AC. The staff could not say enough about this reel. As soon as I picked it up, I was impressed by it's lightness and extreme smoothness. 2 days later, I was lucky to break it in the back bay with stripers up to 30'' on poppers. The drag is really smooth. Like the guys said in the store, "if you have a $100 to spend on a spinning reel, this is the reel to get" Well done Shimano and thanks again Tackle Direct, you guys are a step above the rest!!!
