The Aero XR is a technically advanced match and feeder reel containing all of the attributes required by top competition anglers. These include an anti-reverse facility, lightweight CI4+ body and rotor, and advanced HAGANE gearing for peerless performance. If you are a competition angler, or fish using a float or feeder, and want a reel to match your ability, the Aero XR is the solution. All of the reels balance perfectly with Shimano’s best Aero X5, X7 and Pro match and feeder rods, giving you an enviable combination that offer a competitive advantage. With their super smooth waterproof drags, and an additional anti-reverse facility, you can play fish directly off the drag when using stronger lines, by back-winding when using fine lines, or by using a combination of both. The smallest 3000 size is perfect for all float fishing and close range feeder fishing, the mid-sized 4000 is ideal for larger float work or mid range feeder fishing and the largest 5000 size is ideal for longer feeder work or mid-range heavy feeder work. With a G-Free CI4+ body and rotor all models are remarkably light, with the 4000 size weighing only 250g, which is a noticeable reduction compared to competitor models of the same size. An additional advantage which you can feel is the precision of the lightweight rotation, which is a result of the CI4+ Rotor construction and the HAGANE Gear, X-SHIP, Silent Drive technology. Additional features include the best AR-C Cold Forged Aluminium spools, (including a spare spool) with a line reducer to reduce the line capacity of the reel. The larger 5000 model has an additional reducer for use with braid when feeder fishing at long range. Power is delivered by a very direct screw in handle and a metal line clip, that is strong and line-safe, reinforces the XR’s feeder fishing pedigree.Visually, the understated ‘stealth-like’ looks of the Aero XR are stunning and combined with the advanced engineering technology can’t fail to inspire your confidence to perform at the highest level.
