Under the hood, you will love the impressive feel and reliability of Hagane gears. This perfect, strong mesh is beautifully supported by 5 shielded anti-rust bearings for a silky smooth, yet determined crank. Corrosion resistance is indeed a feature with Shimano Coreprotect providing superior corrosion mitigation for a long working life out in the salt.
The AR-C Spool and Aero Wrap 2 technology work in concert to provide outstanding casting manners. The inclusion of X-ship technology with the rigid XGT-7 body ensures all the power transfers smoothly to the business end of the battle, with no power bleed or loss of torque. The Shimano Ultegra FB Reels work brilliantly while under load.
The sizes listed below will excite the finesse anglers as well as those looking for a reel that will cover most inshore applications. The freshies will chase Bass, Trout and Yellow Belly, and the salt anglers will poke it at everything the estuaries and rivers have to offer from Whiting, Bream and flathead, with the Shimano Ultegra 3000 FB reel is very capable when pitted against smaller Mulloway and a host of other fish species.
