The Shimano Stradic FK ST4000XGFK Spinning Reel is your go-to all purpose reel that can perform equally well when either bucktailing fluke or throwing light tins at cruising stripers and blues. Down south, use this reel for targeting reds and specks in marshy, back-bay areas as well as throwing plugs at larger predators like snook and tarpon. You can feel confident that your ST4000XGFK will hold up under serious pressure thanks in part to the incredibly rigid Hagane gearing and body system, new to Shimano in 2015. The XG notation means you’ll get a quicker 6.2:1 gear ratio, making for lightening-fast retrieves that will generate ferocious strikes. The CF Cold Forged Aluminum spool can hold just about 200 yards of 20# braid, giving you more than enough line capacity to throw down with some serious predators. Still, weighing just shy of 10 ounces, the ST4000XGFK doesn’t hold you down with overbearing weight yet can put the screws to broad-shouldered with 24# of waterproof drag! The Shimano Stradic FK ST4000XGFK Spinning Reel will balance perfectly upon a 6’6”-7’6” medium to medium heavy fast action graphite rod.

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.
