Aero FA Match

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. As its name implies, the Aero match is the perfect reel for serious match anglers, with a versatile gear ratio of 5, 2:1 which retrieves 93cm of line per handle turn. Its large AR-C spool, combined with Aero Wrap II, ensures that casting performance is not reduced when using heavy mono reel lines up to 10lb, making it perfect for all commercial fisheries. The Aero Match comes with two different sized line reducers enabling spool capacity to bechanged to suit personal preference.
