SUSTAIN FI New Season


The much anticipated release of the Sustain FI has challenged Shimano to deliver a reel that exceeds expectations and sets a new benchmark for saltwater performance. With the challenge now set, Shimano has engineered a spinning reel that offers the perfect balance between rigidity and sensitivity.

X Protect technology provides the Sustain FI with Shimano's highest degree of waterproofing protection. Such technology leverages both a water repellent treatment and labyrinth structure that blocks any internal saltwater entry into the reels internals.

The cold forged Hagane Gear and X-Ship combine to provide a gearing system that is smoother and stronger than any other available in the market. This gives the reel a much smoother gear transition but also unrivalled pulling power to handle larger predatory species.

SUSTAIN FI FEATURES
These bearings have been through the same process as our A-RB bearings, but feature shields on both sides of the bearings that reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting the bearings rotation.

HAGANE Body means this reel has a high rigidity and zero twist. The body stiffness and impact resistance virtually eliminates body flexing. The result transforms the anglers actions directly into cranking power. It's efficiency through strength.

Through tens of thousands of casting tests and computer simulations it has been determined that this new AR-C spool lip design provides longer casting distances than a standard spool lip design while preventing backlashes and wind knots from forming. It also allows the line to flow off the spool in smaller loops during the cast, which means less slap on the stripper guide. This means longer casts ...
By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with our S-ARB bearings and integrating a bigger drive gear, Shimano increased the gearing efficiency and power. This results in a fishing reel with ultra-light handle rotation, giving a perfect rotation even under heavy loads.

Shimano New Zealand provides a TEN YEAR WARRANTY on all Shimano fishing reels, against defects in materials and/or faulty workmanship.


HAGANE Gear is at the very heart of the reel and creates strength and durability. The entire cold-forging process is calculated in minute detail by special 3D design and the result is precision durability.
