The Shimano Syncopate FG series of spinning reels allow for reliable service without a hefty price tag. Casting lures one-handed employing the Quick-Fire® II system means you can cast effortlessly and land your soft plastic or hard bodied lure just where you want it every time.

Propulsion Line Management System casts great distances with less effort. Varispeed® alters the oscillation cam speed for excellent castability. DynaBalance® eliminates wobble by counterbalancing the rotor and bail.

Four shielded stainless steel ball bearings. Graphite frame, sideplate and rotor. Propulsion spool prevents backlashes. Power Roller® II reduces line twist.

The Syncopate FG is ideal for those wanting an entry level reel when targeting trout, salmon, cod, trevally, kahawai, gurnard and snapper.

Superior aircraft-grade Aluminium material. A6063 aluminium is used for it's increased corrosion resistance and A7075 is used for its extremely low mass resulting in lower start-up inertia.
Normal oscillation systems use a constant rotation of the oscillation gear that, when translated to the cam, provides an inconsistent spool speed. This results in line lay that stacks at either end of the spool. By using an oval oscillation gear, we are able to alter the speed of the oscillation cam to provide a consistent spool speed. This results in an even line lay that provides excellent casta...
A system used for easy and fast one-handed casting. The line and trigger self-center, and are within easy grasp of the angler's index finger. By pulling the line and the trigger with one hand, the bail opens and is ready to be cast.
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.
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.
