Reel Shimano Catana 4000 FC
One look at the strong aggressive red Catana tells you this is a reel of quality and excitement. The superb design of the Catana FC features two stainless steel ball bearings and a roller bearing, providing smoothness usually found on much more expensive reels. A strong lightweight aluminium spool comes as standard making the Catana FC ideal for both mono and braided lines. This model is an excellent all round reel that can be used for a wide range of styles and features Dyna-Balance for exceptional smoothness and performance and Super Stopper II for instant hook setting and assured fish-playing. Without doubt the Catana FC is the outstanding reel in its price class.
Reel uses the patented Shimano systems :
Shimano has a worldwide reputation for producing some of the best reels in the world, but it is also a company that understands the needs of all anglers, irrespective of ability, age or spending power. In 2005 we developed the P3 Concept range to satisfy the millions of anglers across Europe who wanted to own a Shimano reel. This was a huge success, with more anglers enjoying the benefits of owning and using a Shimano reel than ever before. For 2011 Shimano have developed the P4 Concept. Working on the same principles used to develop P3, but with an AR-C spool, playless handle and a new designed body with rear protector. Shimano P4 stands for Power, Precision, Performance and Pleasure and combines uncompromising quality with mid-priced affordability.
Dyna Balance :
Reduces reel wobble and allows produces ultra smooth performance.
Power Roller :
The special design of the Shimano Power Roller significantly reduces line twist during the retrieve and is a big advantage when using thin mono and braid.
Super Stopper II :
With the reel set in anti-reverse mode you'll find zero free-play on the handle thanks to Super Stopper II. Unerringly positive every time, its practical benefits include micro increment settings of quiver tips or specialist bite indicators and faster hook setting.
AR-C Spool :
A spool design with a V-shape spool lip ensuring that the line comes off the reel in smaller loops for further and more accurate casting. The AR-C spool will minimise the risk of backlash.
Good quality line lay is the most important feature for precise, long and accurate casting. Shimano´s revolutionary Varispeed System consists of two specially designed gears. One is oval and the other a remarkable square shape!
