The SR-Concept combines the
new concept of Reliance with all
aspects of the S-Concept:
Smooth, Silent and Strong. The
Reliance Concept, or R-Concept,
means that dreams in reel design
are now evolving into reality. The
result of the use of the new S-R
Concept in design is the
development of many exciting
new features.
Fluidrive II

Building upon the successes of Fluidrive, which provides
extremely tight tolerances and control in the cutting
process, Fluidrive II polishes the gear surface to
maximize tooth contact. This increases the efficiency of
the retrieve for more power with less effort.

This feature eliminates wobble during the retrieve by
counter balancing the rotor to enhance sensitivity and
smoothness. By using computer balancing, an approach
similar to car tire balancing, we are able to redistribute
the rotor weight to create smooth rotation and eliminate
vibrations caused by the reel.

S-Concept represents Shimano's initial philosophy on
which many of our spinning reel have been designed.
The three basic ideas that are inherent in the S-
Concept are Smooth, Silent and Strong.
•Smooth rotation and comfortable retrieve, coupled with
excellent drag performance and longer casting distance,
leads to our smooth, flawless operation.
•Silent operation of parts within the reel's construction
represents the attention to tight tolerances, reducing
excessive noise and resulting in the silent operation of
our reels.
•Strong, solid and functional construction leads to
powerful torque and durable drivetrains. This gives
anglers the strength and confidence they need to battle
elusive gamefish.
•The new sizing of our S-Concept reels offers anglers a
bigger spool and smaller body, resulting in a lighter,
more comfortable fishing experience without sacrificing
line capacity.
The end result are reels offering anglers smooth, silent
and strong reels that are designed for years of fishing
use. The knowledge of fishing and the minds of
Shimano's engineers have given today's angler state-of-
the-art reels that are ready for any challenge.

X-Ship provides improved gear
durability. By supporting the
pinion gear on both ends with
bearings, the pinion gear
maintains precise alignment with
the drive gear. This means the
gears will stay in the same
position under the heaviest
loads. The added benefit is that
friction between the spool shaft
and gear are eliminated. This will
enhance the casting performance
of the reel with lighter lures, and
allow for longer casts.
Super Stopper II

Super Stopper II anti-reverse
uses a one-way bearing that
eliminates backplay.This
provides the angler with instant
hooksetting power. In some
reels, the Super Stopper II can
be turned off to allow
backreeling for special
techniques and situations.
Cold Forged Aluminum Spool

These spools provide increased
strength and durability over
diecast aluminum or graphite

The Shimano FX reel series come equipped with an
easily-adjustable front drag and offers Dyna Balance
for smooth retrieves, and Varispeed for even line lay
and long, accurate casts. This reel is a great choice for
any beginner.
The Shimano FX® Front Drag Spinning Reel is
extremely affordable... but that doesn't mean it's some
kind of stripped down, bare bones model.The truth is,
the FX is a Shimano through and through with loads of
exclusive Shimano features:Graphite frame, sideplate
and rotor for reduced weight Diecast aluminum spool for
casting performance and durabilityVarispeed, an oval
oscillation gear provides a consistent spool speed for an
even line lay for excellent castability and manageability
Super Stopper II® multi-stop ratchet system minimizes
back-play for hook setting powerDyna-Balance® system
works as in balancing a tire, counterbalancing the rotor
to eliminate wobble during the retrieve Power Roller® II
is an oversized line roller that reduces twist from casting
and retrieving and is enhanced with a tapered area on
the support to help line get onto the roller
