Shimano Aero Spin 4000 FA Fishing Reel
The Aero spinning version is equipped with a relatively slow 4.8:1 gear ratio which delivers a more controllable performance when working all types of lure and increased torque and power when playing hard fighting predators.
Finished in metallic silver, the Aero spin features Aero Wrap II and an oversized AR-C spool which combine to deliver outstanding casting performance, even with lightweight lures. More recently, the Aero spin has become a firm favourite with match anglers, its low speed ratio, combined with a high cranking power, makes it perfect for commercial carp fishing.
Don't be fooled by the name, Shimano's Aero Spin reel is not only a great tool for the lure angler, but as many of our top match guys have discovered, it is also a great reel for big fish work. This is due to the immense cranking power that comes from it 4:8.1 gear ratio. In this video, top match angler Rob Wootton takes a look.
