If you are new to fishing you probably don’t want to spend a lot of money, but you do want to make sure the reel you buy is a good choice. That’s where the FX comes into the picture. FX is made by Shimano, who make some of the most advanced and expensive reels in the world. They have been around for over 100 years, so they know a thing or two about reels, which is why the FX is so good. Owning a Shimano reel is something to be proud of and many of the world’s best fishermen have started their journey with a reel like the Shimano FX. So, if you don’t have much money to spend, don’t worry, FX is a great choice.
With 2 ball bearings, a roller bearing and Shimano’s famous gears, the FX will offer you smoothness and reliably for many years. In fact you will probably have traded up to a more expensive model before your FX starts to run out of steam! And just so you know you are making a great choice when buying the FX, it also has some great technical touches like a strong XT-7 Body, and an AR-C long casting spool design, which is made out of aluminium not cheap plastic. It might not have a big price tag, but the FX certainly has the quality and credibility that Shimano is known for around the world.
