Shimano ST4000XGFL Stradic FL Spinning Reels
The Stradic FL 4000 is designed for more demanding inshore saltwater applications. With its larger line capacity and increased power, it can handle larger fish species, such as redfish, snook, tarpon, and smaller offshore species. The Stradic FL 4000 is also suitable for freshwater applications where increased line capacity is necessary, such as when targeting larger bass or pike.
Featuring a robust HAGANE body construction, the Stradic FL reels offer unmatched rigidity and strength. This solid foundation eliminates flexing, ensuring optimal power transfer and providing the stability needed to handle hard-fighting fish. Additionally, the X-Protect technology delivers remarkable water resistance, safeguarding the reel's internals from the elements and enhancing its longevity.
Smoothness is at the heart of the Stradic FL series, thanks to Shimano's MicroModule Gear II system. The precisely crafted gears ensure a silky-smooth retrieve, reducing friction and allowing for seamless power transmission. The result is an incredibly fluid operation that enhances casting distance, accuracy, and overall angling performance.
Shimano's Propulsion Line Management System sets the Stradic FL reels apart in terms of casting efficiency. This innovative system optimizes the line lay, minimizing the chances of tangles and enhancing casting distance. Whether you're targeting distant bass or finesse-fishing for trout, you can count on these reels to deliver precise and controlled casts.
The Stradic FL series also incorporates Shimano's advanced drag technology. The reliable and responsive drag system allows you to adjust the line tension smoothly, enabling you to battle hard-fighting fish with confidence. Whether you're targeting trophy-sized bass or battling aggressive inshore species, these reels provide the stopping power needed to tame even the toughest adversaries.
Ergonomics play a crucial role in ensuring a comfortable and fatigue-free fishing experience. The Stradic FL reels feature an ergonomic handle design that provides a secure grip, allowing for extended fishing sessions without discomfort. The lightweight construction further enhances user comfort, enabling you to focus on the thrill of the catch rather than straining under the weight of your gear.

Shimano Technology in Stradic FL Spinning Reels:
- 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.
- Hagane Body - A reel body with high rigidity, which virtually eliminates body flexing due to its stiffness and impact resistance. The result? An angler's actions are more efficiently transformed into cranking power. It's efficiency through strength.
- 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.
- MicroModule II Gear - State-of-the-art gear design makes use of smaller gear teeth and more of them, which results in a more efficient gear train and much smoother retrieve.
- Long Stroke Spool - By increasing the height of the spool, the line is able to be laid on the spool without the spool having to fully oscillate as frequently. This results in the line having to change direction while coming off the spool fewer times during a cast, resulting in less turbulence going through the guides for a smoother and longer cast.
- SilentDrive - A long list of fine-tuned internal micro adjustments and enhancements that reduce any handle play and noise from moving parts.
- X-Protect - By combining a water repellent coating and a specially designed water channeling labyrinth construction, X-Protect provides high-level water resistance without adding weight or sacrificing light rotor rotation.
- 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 angler's hand position. This shift in weight and balance helps to reduce fatigue and enhance casting comfort.
- S A-RB Bearings - These bearings undergo the same anti-corrosion process as Shimano's A-RB Bearings, with the addition of shields on both sides of the bearings to reduce the possibility of salt, dirt, or other foreign objects inhibiting the bearing's rotation.
- Cross Carbon Drag - Allows for a wider range of drag settings, enhanced drag washer durability, and the smoothest Shimano drag performance ever.
