Product Specifications

Shimano’s Sustain FE ultralight spinning reels are designed with Paladin gear durability enhancement to ensure a long lasting finish under some of the toughest fishing conditions you’ll ever encounter.  Their Propulsion line management system consists of a Propulsion spool lip, SR one piece bail wire, Power Roller III drivetrain, S-arm cam, and a redesigned bail trip that provides super smooth, super reliable performance day after day.  The Aero Wrap II oscillation prevents any line twisting during your retrieve, making the next cast just as effortless as the last.  The sealed components make the Sustain FE suitable for saltwater ultralight fishing, as well.

What I Think

Shimano packed the Sustain FE with too many features to list.  They have built these reels to the highest levels of specifications and quality to ensure that you receive an almost bulletproof ultralight reel that will last you for a very long time to come.  If you’ve ever dealt with an unbalanced reel or line twists in the past, you can forget those days with the Sustain FE.  These problems are almost non-existent, especially with the Dyna-Balance floating shaft, and Fluidrive II drivetrain system.  Each reel can be washed down, and is suited for saltwater use so you don’t have to change setups when you change fishing destinations.

The Shimano Sustain FE is changing the way anglers look at ultralight spinning reels.  Over the past few years manufacturers have finally started listening to what UL anglers need from a reel and are working to provide it with each new model they release, including the Sustain FE.
