The Shimano Sustain 3000 FE is a high-end spinning reel, approved for use in saltwater. With an aluminum spool featuring a titanium lip, durability is a focus of this reel. The titanium lip is part of the Propulsion Line Management System, and is designed to optimize casting distance. The Aero Wrap II oscillation system of this reel, which is designed specifically to work with the Propulsion Line Management System, has a pitch specially designed to create a uniform line lay. This helps to eliminate energy loss during casting, for more distance with less effort. As far as the retrieve goes, the Shimano Sustain 3000 FE spinning reel is equipped with a counter balanced rotor that helps to eliminate wobble, a feature Shimano calls Dyna-Balance.
