STUCK on a last minute gift ideas this Christmas? Look no further. Fishing World has complied what we believe are the best 10 fishing gifts this Christmas. There’s something below for all budgets and various styles of fishing.

Shimano Stradic FM

SHOWCASING reel technologies passed down from Shimano’s flagship spinning reels, the redesigned Stradic FM adds InfinityXross technology for unequaled gear durability and synergy by extending the gear teeth horizontally to distribute gear load more evenly. 

Shimano’s cold-forged HAGANE gearing – with the refinement of MicroModule II – translates into smooth and dependable winding. 

The addition of InfinityDrive increases cranking power under load, while the new Duracross Drag System provides silky drag performance with increased durability. Shimano’s X-Protect water-repellent coating and water-channeling labyrinth construction ensures a lifetime of dependable performance by stopping water penetration in key areas – without adding a heavy rotational feel! Finally, the introduction of a new Anti-Twist Fin — seen in Stella FK — dramatically enhances line performance.

The all-new Stadic FM is the most complete Stradic in a long lineage of performance. Available in 1000HG, 2000HG, 2500HG, Compact 3000HG, 4000XG and Compact 5000XG sizes.

$379.00~ $429.00 (RRP)
