Aernos FB

The Aernos FB sets new standards in the hugely popular P4 series. For the first time ever a P4 reel features X-Ship gearing, once only found on Shimano's most expensive reels. This addition increases winding efficiency and smoothness making the Aernos FB suitable for many freshwater fishing situations. The M Compact body is made from lightweight XGT-7 composite and contains 5 Shielded Stainless Steel bearings and a roller bearing for smooth assured performance when under pressure. Finished in an ultra dark blue satin finish, with red detailing on the spool and handle, the Aernos FB has a distinctive look that sets it apart from many other reels. Available in a wide range of sizes from the smallest 1000 size for finesse fishing with lightweight sensitive rods, to the compact bodied 5000 size for feeder or heavy lure fishing, there is also a shallow spooled 3000 model suitable for use with lightweight mono for float fishing or braid when predator or medium range feeder fishing.
