Shimano Aernos C 5000 FB
The Shimano Aernos FB Reel has been developed as part of Shimano’s impressive P4 series. This is a series with power, precision, performance, and pleasure at its heart and Shimano aims to provide all four in conjunction with mid-range affordability. This is why this reel features many of the best loved features from other, significantly more expensive, Shimano reels. With its combination of outstanding technology and mid-range price point, this is certainly a reel for anglers who want all the technical qualities of a top end Shimano reel but who don’t want to break the bank.
The body of the Aernos FB is made from XGT-7 carbon. This is an improved version of Shimano’s favourite tried and tested XT-7 carbon composite which has been seen on many of its low-mid priced reels over the year. Lightweight and stiff, XGT-7 creates reels with durability and high performance credentials – Shimano terms this new body MCompact, highlighting its impressive performance-to-size ratio. This MCompact body houses five shielded stainless steel ball bearings. These ensure that the reel is a dream to use and is incredibly smooth no matter how difficult the conditions.
This impressive reel is also fitted with Shimano’s revolutionary X Ship technology. X Ship operates within the gearing of the Aernos FB reel – ensuring that you are able to achieve massive cranking power in the gear system. This is ideal for those anglers who want to be able to target those larger, hard fighting fish with confidence. The cast is every bit as smooth and powerful as the retrieve on this reel. With an AR-C spool, the Aernos FB boasts an angled spool lip which ensures that your line flies from the spool friction free – enabling it to maintain every bit of speed from your impressive power cast. This makes distances casting a pleasure rather than a chore. The Aernos FB is a top quality spinning reel, perfect for a variety of angling situations across the disciplines.
