The Shimano Stradic 3000 FI is a mid-cost spinning reel. This spinning reel's Dyna-Balance feature eliminates wobble during retrieve by counter balancing the rotor to enhance sensitivity and smoothness. The Stradic 3000 FI's Fluidrive II feature polishes the gear surface to maximize tooth contact, for a more efficient overall cast. This spinning reel is equipped with Super Stopper II, an anti-reverse feature that uses a one-way bearing to eliminate backplay. The Stradic 3000 FI spinning reel is equipped with the Paladin Gear Durability Enhancement system. This system utilizes a cold forged aluminum drive gear and a hardened brass pinion gear to help the reel retain its out-of-the-box smoothness. This model differs from the closely related 2500 FI model in that the 2500 FI has thirty-four inches of line retrieve per crank (as opposed to the 3000 FI's thirty-five inches), has a different line capacity (6/200, 8/140, 10/120 as opposed to the 3000 FI's 6/230, 8/170, 10/140), and a different power pro line capacity (10/170, 15/145, 30/95 as opposed to the 3000 FI's 10/235, 20/145, 40/110). The Shimano Stradic 3000 FI spinning reel is equipped with the Aero Wrap II oscillation system, which creates a uniform line lay and winding shape to prevent loss of energy during casting.
