Shimano Sustain FG Model SA6000FG Spinning Reel
Delivering top-shelf performance and the latest in Shimano's
spinning reel technologies, the Shimano Sustain FG Spinning
Reel also features a clean, classic black finish that pairs perfectly
with any rod series. Incredibly lightweight and powerful as well
thanks to its rigid X-Ship construction and Paladin Gear Durability
Enhancement, the Sustain FG has the cranking power you would
expect from a premier spinning reel. It also features a convenient
Reel Stand, which really helps protect it from damage on you
boat deck. The Propulsion Line Management System greatly
improves casting performance, and the Aero Wrap II Oscillation
Wrap System ensures uniform line lay and winding shape.
Smooth as silk and tough as nails, the Shimano Sustain FG
Spinning Reel lives up to its reputation.

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.
Aero Wrap II is a worm gear oscillation system with a specially
designed pitch to create optimal oscillation speeds for the
Propulsion Spool Lip design. It provides uniform line lay and
winding shape to prevent loss of energy during the cast while
providing longer casts than other oscillation systems. So,
casting distance increases with less effort required. (Aero Wrap
II is not available on Saros reels, which are equipped with Slow
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
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.
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
•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
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.
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.
