The Shimano Catana is strong, solid, smooth and reliable for years, while the price is very competitive.
For many years Catana has been Shimano’s most sold spinning reel in Europe. And that’s no coincidence: Shimano Catana is strong, solid, smooth and reliable for years, while the price is very competitive. It rotates very smooth and all parts are made to last.
When compared to the previous series (FC), the FD reel has a new, modern and striking black stealth design.
Many parts inside are updated and that makes it possible to upgrade the drag power massively, compared to the FC model. This makes the reel also more powerful and ready for fighting big fish. The Shimano Catana FD can be used for many ways of fishing. Of course for predator / spinning / trout, but also very suitable for feeder / match / coarse / commercial fishing, because it is equipped with the anti-retour lever which is liked by many anglers.
This is Shimano quality and top performance at an affordable price for the rookies. The Catana FD is equipped with the Propulsion Line Management System which offers better line management and long distance trouble free casting, for a stress free day on the water.
Because the range is extended with also HG versions, Shimano Catana FD is even more versatile than the previous generation!
Features of the Shimano Catana FD:
- front drag
- diecasted aluminium spool
- ARC spool & Varispeed II
- 2 shielded stainless steel bearing + 1 roller bearing
