The Catana is for many years Shimano’s most sold spinning reel in Europe! And that’s no coincidence: the Catana is strong, solid, smooth and reliable for years, while the price is very competitive. When compared to the previous series , the reel has a new, modern and striking black stealth design. It rotates very smooth and all parts are made to last. Many parts inside are updated and that makes it possible to upgrade the drag power massively, compared to the FC model. This makes the reel also more powerful and ready for fighting big fish! The Catana can be used for many ways of fishing. Of course for predator / spinning / trout, but also very suitable for feeder/match/coarse/commercial fishing, because it is equipped with the anti-retour lever which is liked by many anglers. Because the range is extended with also HG versions, the reel is even more versatile than the previous generation! There are four reels in the re-launched Catana range, from 1000 to 4000 size, with the 2500, C3000, and 4000 HG having high retrieve ratios from 5.8 to 6.2:1 thanks to the presence of zinc DC gears. Perfect for freshwater, estuary and light offshore applications, the larger reels are capable of dialing up a whopping 8.5kg of drag power. The AR-C spool lip design increases casting distance, controls the development of wind knots, and creates less slap on the stripping guide. They come with two SUS ball bearings, plus one roller bearing, so it’s smooth sailing all the way with these value packed reels.
