WHETHER you flick Squidgies around for snapper, spin for tailor, salmon and small tuna, or cast for barra in a Top End billabong, Shimano says its Aero 4000SPA is the perfect reel.
With AR-C Line Management, Aerowrap II and a long cast cold-forged spool, the Aero is made to cast like a dream and is a pleasure to wind thanks to X-Ship, Floating Shaft II, and three A-RB bearings and one roller bearing.
The waterproof drag can be cranked up to eight kilos, and it holds 240 metres of four kilo nylon, or the equivalent amount of 15 pound Power Pro braid.
With a 4.8:1 retrieve ratio, it’s possible to rip in 86cm of line with each turn of the machined aluminium handle.
The Aero 4000’s compact body and rotor are made from XT-7, and with an all-up weight of a mere 330 grams, it remains enjoyable to use all day long.
