The HG FB is a worthy successor to the legendary Stradic name and like its predecessors it makes a subline lure reel. We have always rated the Stradic from the first FA model and Shimano still somehow manage to raise the bar with each new model. This FK is so light and smooth that you just want to pick it up and turn the handle to remind yourself how gorgeous it is.
Fishing performance is as good as you would expect and it will make you late home time and again as you just have to have 'one more cast' to enjoy how nice the reel is. Once you hook a fish the powerful retrieve and silky clutch keep you in control as you play your catch to the bank.
