Shimano's new Ultegra Series spinning reels include X-Ship technology for increased smoothness and efficiency, a HAGANE Gear for incredible smoothness and durability, Aero Wrap Oscillation for longer casting and perfect line winding, and CoreProtect for water resistance without that heavy rotation feeling. These features work together to create a reel that responds quickly and positively in a wide variety of fishing situations.

The HAGANE Gear is produced by applying nearly 200 tons of pressure to the raw metal. This technology is unlike any other in the world, and requires no cutting work, forging a high-precision gear with micron accuracy in a single process.

Light, smooth, and packed full of features Ultegra is a great value!
This reel is a great option for folks that don't want to spend the extra cash for a Stradic. Support smooth retrieve and very little start up inertia giving it the feel of a high end feel at halfthe cost.

Very smooth and light weight
I was looking for light weight reel for casting lures(1~2oz) at surf with 9~10ft rod.
This reel is perfect size and weight for that.

Would the 5000 ultegra pair up with a 8' mojo surf

from New Jersey asked:
March 9, 2017
Very similar specs to the Stradic FK. What differentiates the two and what is the main reason for the $60 difference? Will be used for inshore saltwater fishing, and planning to pair with a M/MH rod and 20-30lb braid. Thanks.
1 Answer
The main difference is the handle feature for the larger reels with the FK model and the FK series has Aero Wrap II: is a worm gear oscillation system with specially designed pitch to create optimal oscillation speeds. This provides great uniform line lay to reduce loss of energy during the cast shape and thickness of the aluminum rotor creates high rigidity that results in more fish fihgting power. Those are the two features that separate the two models.

1 Answer
A Shimano Saragosa 5000 or Penn Clash 4000-5000 would pair up well with an 8' Avid.

Winter is clearly in our rear view mirror now, and as lakes and reservoirs around the state lose their final coverings of hardwater, northern pike get on the prowl for their spring spawn. There’s no finer time to target pike as live baiting... Read More
