The Shimano Stradic FK ST3000HGFK Spinning Reel begins to wade into the waters that trophy fish inhabit. Saltwater anglers rejoice – there’s finally a 3000 sized reel that can hang with the big boys while staying light and agile during the fight! A larger CF Cold Forged aluminum spool sits atop the body of the 2500, giving you much needed braid capacity when targeting larger predators like redfish, stripers, snook, weakfish, sea trout, and more! You’re looking at about 135 yards of 30# braid, putting you in range of these bigger and angrier specimens. Shimano’s new Hagane gear and body technology ensures excellent rigidity and 20# of waterproof drag give you some serious stopping power in a small package. Anglers here in the Northeast love this reel for light back-bay or North Shore fluke bucktailing – match this baby on a 6’6” medium action rod for a killer kayak jigging combo. The Shimano Stradic FK ST3000HGFK Spinning Reel has a quick 6:1 hear ratio, and 6 Shielded A-RB ball bearings inside will make the retrieve almost stupid smooth. It’s crazy.

I haven't received it yet but if it's like the one I bought thirty years ago for around sixty dollars I'll be greatly satisfied.
