Product Specifications

The Shimano Spirex FG ultralight spinning reels are designed with their Propulsion Line Management System that features a Propulsion spool lip, Power Roller III line pickup system, and an S-Arm Cam that prevents bail tripping during hard pulls from big fish.  Each reel features 5 shielded stainless steel ball bearings, and a lightweight graphite frame, sideplate, and rotor to ensure smooth operation and a lightweight feel in your hand.  The cold forged aluminum spool prevents flex even when you have big fish on the end of the line.  Dyna Balance and Shimano’s Fluidrive II drivetrain provide a balanced feel that doesn’t bounce around when you’re reeling in line.

What I Think

Like other Shimano reels the Spirex FG is a dual purpose ultralight spinning reel.  Whether you are fishing in the freshwater during the morning and switching over to saltwater in the afternoon, or just want to make sure that you’ve got a reel that will work in both situations you will love the Spirex FG.  It’s approved for use with mono, fluorocarbon, as well as PowerPro braided lines and has a dual knob ported handle to keep the weight down, and make it easy to grab when you get ticks and thumps on the end of the line.

A reel this good doesn’t come along often, especially at the lower price tag that the Spirex FG is sporting.  If you are looking for a high quality ultralight reel that isn’t going to break your budget the Spirex FG is exactly what you need.
