The Shimano Baitrunner ST FB spinning reel is a perfect choice of reel for beginners and those who want to try fishing with a fixed spool reel for the fist time. This small Baitrunner ST FB is a excellent reel that is available in two different sizes to suit your style of fishing.
The 2500 version has a small size and is ideal if you are fishing for the likes of carp. The size is suitable for feeder and bomb styles of fishing in smaller waters. The 4000 size is a great choice for general specialist fishing as due to it's larger size, it will give you more versatility and strength.
The incredible manufacturing and design features in the ST FB construction helps build this really into a small yet powerful reel. The Varispeed system uses a special computing process to create uniquely designed gears that make the line lay perfectly parallel and helps increase your fishing accuracy.
Combine the Varispeed system with the AR-C spool and you'll have a casting machine. The AR-C spool produces an angled lip design which allows your line to leave the spool with a reduced amount of friction and minimise coils. This will help give you much smoother, longer and more precise casts.
One of the further design features includes the Super Stopper II system which allows you to have your reel in anti-reverse and stops any free play or backwards movement. The main frame of the reel is made of XT-7 composite material to built a strong, durable yet lightweight reel with lots of power.
Similar in design to the Baitrunner DL FB and available in the same sizes, the difference in the Shimano Baitrunner ST FB is that it has 1 shielded stainless steel bearings and 1 roller bearing as opposed to 3. This is what makes this reel a great choice for a beginner or even as a spare.
The Shimano Baitrunner ST FB is a black reel with silver highlight accents and is supplied with it's own instruction manual. Among the many Shimano Baitrunner reels, the ST FB is certainly a dark horse that will be sure to impress you.
