Reel Sustain FJ

A member of the Magnumlite series, the Sustain combines supreme sensitivity and lightweight operation, with the strength to overcome the toughest of situations. Elegant, sleek and unquestionably stunning, Sustain also matches perfectly with the rods of the same name.
When it comes to head-turning reels, the Sustain is right up there with the best of them. The satin black body with chrome accents looks fantastic, but the true beauty of this reel is in the way it feels and performs. You’ll immediately notice how remarkably lightweight it is in your hand and the rotation almost defies logic, with only minimal pressure required to set the rotor moving. The smaller sizes are perfect for sensitive finesse type set-ups, whilst the larger 4000 and 5000 sizes deliver power to conquer the toughest freshwater and inshore saltwater species.
The secret of the Sustains lightweight rotation is the Magnumlite (MGL) rotor. Built from Shimano’s ultra light Ci4+ composite and perfectly balanced, it delivers light start-up rotation, faster hook-sets and increased sensitivity. Inside the tough aluminium body is a combination of HAGANE Gear, MicroModule II, X-SHIP and Silent Drive ensuring the very best winding performance, with smoothness to enhance your fishing experience and enjoyment. And when you hook into a powerful fish, you can be sure that the Cross Carbon Drag will give you the power and reassurance you expect from a Shimano reel.
X-Protect technology makes the Sustain saltwater safe and for distance casting the Long Stroke Spool design and AR-C Spool delivers vital extra metres.

HAGANEGEAR_RL_SP
HAGANE GEAR

The HAGANE Drive Gear is produced by Shimano’s coldforging technology, without the need for additional machining. This delivers a longlasting smoothness, strength, lightness and power at the very heart of the reel. Traditional diecast, machined gears are less durable under heavy loads.


MICROMODULE2_RL_SP
MICROMODULEⅡ

The MICROMODULE Gear II has evolved with Shimano's unique manufacturing technology and a state-of-the-art gear-tooth surface design. The drive and pinion gear surfaces have been analyzed and updated from the ground up in Shimano's pursuit of perfection to further improve the smooth gear feeling and reduce sound.


XSHIP_RL_SP
X SHIP

X SHIP provides improved gear durability. By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with bearings, the pinion gear maintains precise alignment with the drive gear. This increased support allows the gears to stay in the same position under the heaviest loads. X-Ship technology also eliminates the friction between the spool shaft and gear to further benefit anglers with enhanced casting performance and casting distance of lighter lures.


HAGANEBODY_RL_SP
HAGANE BODY

The HAGANE Body is a metal reel body with high rigidity. The body rigidity and impact resistance virtually eliminate body flexing on the reel while fighting a fish. The result transforms the angler's actions directly into cranking power.


XPROTECT_RL_SP
X PROTECT

For medium and small general-purpose spinning reels, which require lighter spinning, we focused on a non-contact structure that does not compromise the lightness of the spinning. In addition to conventional water-repellent treatment, a labyrinth structure that suppresses water penetration is combined to achieve high water-resistant performance despite the non-contact nature of the structure. It is used in the stopper bearing section and line roller section.


GFREEBODY_RL_SP
G FREE BODY

G FREE BODY technology has been developed to shift the reel's center of gravity closer to the rod. By moving the center of gravity closer to the angler’s hand, the G FREE BODY helps to reduce fatigue and enhance casting comfort.


AR-CSPOOL_RL_SP
AR-C SPOOL

The spool has a special spool ring shape. This creates a rectifying effect on the line and realizes both suppression of line trouble and long casting performance.


LONGSTROKESPOOL_RL_SP
LONG STROKE SPOOL

The LONG STROKE SPOOL has a longer stroke compared to conventional spool designs. It contributes to improved casting feel and distance.


CI4+_RL_SP
CI4+

CI4 is a resin material reinforced with carbon fiber that is lighter and has a higher strength than conventional resin material. CI4+ is an advanced version of the original CI4 material.The rigidity and durability have been greatly improved from original CI4 material while maintaining the lightness of the material, making it possible to reduce the size and weight of the reel.


RIGIDSUPPORTDRAG_RL_SP
RIGID SUPPORT DRAG

By strengthening the spool support of the main shaft, the play and fluctuation of the spool during drag operation are reduced. The RIGID SUPPORT DRAG allows smooth and consistent drag delivery.


CROSSCARBONDRAG_RL_SP
CROSS CARBON DRAG

The CROSS CARBON DRAG provides the smooth drag release and the durability.


SA-RB_RL_SP
SA-RB

S A-RB bearings are put through the same process as Shimano’s A-RB bearings but feature shields on both sides of the bearings. These shields reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting the rotation of the bearing.


ONE-PIECEBAIL_RL_SP
ONE-PIECE BAIL

ONE-PIECE BAILallows the line to travel unimpeded to the line roller. The seamless design reduces friction and decreases the chance of tangles or the line catching on the bail arm.
