Designed for inshore and offshore fishing, the Shimano Spheros spin reel has long been a favourite among Australian anglers. Available in five sizes, from 6000 to 18000, the Spheros FB is ideal for lure casting, jigging, surf casting and bait fishing. Robust enough to handle a few knocks, it features a waterproof multi-disc drag, cold-forged drive gear and slow speed oscillation for complete peace of mind on the water.
