A great reel gets even better with Shimano's new Sustain FE Spinning Reel. Completely redesigned under the SR-Concept, the Sustain FE features the new Propulsion Line Management System and Aero Wrap II Oscillation for extra-long casts and less line twist. The Sustain FE is further enhanced with the Paladin Gear Durability Enhancement, which adds considerable strength to the gear system without sacrificing any of the reel's smoothness. A new Direct Drive Mechanism was also directly attached to the handle, allowing power to be transferred through the handle more efficiently with less vibration.

The Sustain still has all of the durability and smoothness it always had with its 7 A-RB coated ball bearings. Weight was also reduced by adding a Graphite Side Plate and Rotor, as well as, a cold forged Aluminum Frame and Spool with a Titanium Lip. Add in WP Drag (waterproof drag), a Maintenance Port and Repairable Clicker for unprecedented reliability plus a host of other features and you have a new Sustain FE Spinning Reel that is as good as it ever was.
