Shimano Sustain FJ Spinning Reel – SA2500HGFJ - Review
The Shimano 2021 Sustain FJ Spinning Reel is designed to provide anglers with increased strength and sensitivity for tackling tough inshore or freshwater species. As part of Shimano's MagnumLite series, the Sustain features a MagnumLite (MGL) Rotor that allows for lighter start-up rotation and faster hooksets, while also offering increased sensitivity. The MGL Rotor is not only lightweight and responsive, but it also has a rigid construction that can withstand heavy drag pressures without straining or flexing.
The reel's Aluminum HAGANE Body adds to its strength by reducing flex when reeling in hard-fighting fish. Combined with Shimano's cold-forged HAGANE Gear, which offers smooth reeling performance, the Sustain FJ provides anglers with exceptional performance. The reel also utilizes SilentDrive technology from Shimano's flagship level reels, which enhances its fine-tuned and low tolerance feel, making fishing more enjoyable.
