Spinning Reels

Spinning reels are now the most popular choice amongst fisherman in Australia and Shimano Australia has been supplying top quality spinning reels for over 30 years. This year’s range includes a number of exciting releases that are sure to become favourites among spin fishing fans. Shimano’s size their spinning reels from smaller 1000 models right through to larger 4000 or 5000 sizes, which means that they are able to cover a vast range of targeted species. For example there are models for bream fishing, bass fishing, and saltwater river fishing right through to larger offshore fishing sizes that are more suited for species like snapper or kingfish.

Spin fisherman are continually trying to find an advantage over their scaly foe and Shimano are always looking for ways to improve the fishing experience to give anglers that extra edge needed to land that prized catch. With lure casting becoming ever so popular, Shimano developers saw the need for a light but extremely strong spin reel that could handle the rigors of Australian conditions. Enter the new CI4 bodied range of reels that offer anglers a Carbon infused graphite reel which is extremely light and very strong, allowing for hours of fighting tough, hard pulling fish.
