Aero FA Feeder

The Shimano Aero concept harnesses the power of Shimano's strong engineering background and Japanese roots to make a unique statement in high performance reel design. The three reels introduced under the Aero Concept have been designed for specific uses; Match, Feeder and Spinning. The Match and Feeder versions have been developed specifically for the UK match angler, taking into consideration the requirements of modern match fishing. The large diameter spool makes casting easier with the stronger line now being used on commercial fisheries and the front drags deliver smooth, confidence building performance when playing fish. All Aero reels have Shimano X-ship engineering which provides smooth and efficient power transfer from the handle to the rotor, even when placed under excessive stress. The Aero Concept reel with the fastest gear ratio (5.8:1), especially selected for medium and long range distance feeder fishing, retrieves 104cm of line with each full handle turn! The oversized AR-C spool improves casting performance, especially when using heavy mono main lines which have become more necessary in recent years as fish get larger. Along with a prestigious line up of top Shimano features, the Aero Feeder comes with two different sized line reducers enabling spool capacity to be changed to suit personal preference. For anglers who prefer a double handle for feeder fishing an additional handle can be purchased from your Shimano dealer.
