The Shimano Technium FC series of spin reels are a 'stepping stone' for fishos whom are getting into soft bait or hard body lure fishing with Power Pro line and who may not have the budget for a more expensive reel.

There are two models available in the Technium range; the 2500 FC for medium sized hard bodies, soft plastics and slow jigs and the versatile 4000 FC for larger lures and for targeting trophy sized salmon, kahawai, john dory, snapper and kingfish.

Three A-RB bearings and a roller bearing keeps the internal operation smooth, while Dyna-Balance eliminates retrieve wobble at any speed, from a gentle wind to a full-noise crank.

The Aero Wrap II system maintains even line lay with no hills or valleys, and the oversize Power Roller cuts down on friction as well as line twist. This assists in the line leaving the spool in the wake of a hot running fish.

A spare cold-forged aluminium spool, a set of adjustment washers to modify the winding shape of line on the spool, and a tube of oil for lubricating the main gear just underlines what incredible value for money the Technium FC spinning series are.

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.
These spools provide increased strength and durability over diecast aluminum or graphite spools.
This is an oversized line roller that reduces twist from casting and retrieving and is enhanced with a tapered area on the support to help line get onto the roller quicker.
Aero Wrap II is a worm gear oscillation system with a specially designed pitch to create optimal oscillation speeds for the Propulsion Spool Lip design. It provides uniform line lay and winding shape to prevent loss of energy during the cast while providing longer casts than other oscillation systems. So, casting distance increases with less effort required.
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 ...
This feature eliminates wobble during the retrieve by counter balancing the rotor to enhance sensitivity and smoothness. By using computer balancing, an approach similar to car tire balancing, we are able to redistribute the rotor weight to create smooth rotation and eliminate vibrations caused by the reel.
S-Concept represents Shimanos initial philosophy on which many of our spinning reel have been designed. The three basic ideas that are inherent in the S-Concept are Smooth, Silent and Strong. Smooth rotation and comfortable retrieve, coupled with excellent drag performance and longer casting distance, leads to our smooth, flawless operation.b Silent operation of parts within the reels construction...
After the anodisation process is finished, a second layer of surface treatment is added. This treatment is forced into the remaining surface impurities. This gives salt no hideout and also results in an extremely smooth to-the-touch finish. A reel with E.I. treatment has more than double the corrosion resistance of a standard anodised reel.

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