SHIMANO RARENIUM CI4 + 2500 FB

Rating: 4.9

SHIMANO RARENIUM CI4 + 2500 FB

If we start from the measurements of all the previous nominees of the rating, then SHIMANO RARENIUM CI4 + 2500 FB represents a completely different level of coils. The line intensity and the scale of the spool are left at the mercy of lightening and twisting to the maximum of other parameters, thereby achieving optimal conditions for aggressive twitching. The maximum load on the clutch can be nine kilograms, which makes it possible to pull out even a trophy fish without hindrance.

To achieve perfect running smoothness, the SHIMANO RARENIUM CI4 + 2500 FB is equipped with six shielded bearings that are immune to sand, salt and dirt ingress. In general, great attention has been paid to external protection systems on this model: the above-described friction brake, the discs of which are protected from any contamination, also fell under general protection. This is by far one of the finest twitching reels in the segment, available exclusively to professional anglers.

Advantages

  • deliberate reduction in the dimensions of the spool for the sake of lightening the spool (up to 205 grams);

  • significant load forces on the friction clutch (up to 9 kilograms without blowing the fishing line);

  • reinforced protective elements;

  • sharpening for long-distance casts, aggressive wiring.

disadvantages

  • not detected.

Daiwa Freams 2000 (2011)

Rating: 4.8

Daiwa Freams 2000 (2011)

Despite its rather long production year, this twitching reel continues to enjoy respect and popularity among experienced anglers. Mainly for its “indestructibility”, as many continue to confidently use the model they bought more than six years ago. The body and rotor parts of the Daiwa Freams 2000 are made of high modulus graphite called Zaion. In a combination of lightness and strength, there was a place for a good load capacity: the coil friction was able to withstand up to four kilograms of force. Exceeding this number causes a slow and persistent blowing off, which gives anglers the ability to carry a large predator. In the end, the Daiwa Freams-11 2000 takes the form of an exemplary reel for aggressive twitching, which is able to cope with almost any task.

Advantages

  • optimal combination of price and quality;

  • high popularity among users;

  • spectacular customization;

  • precise clutch adjuster.

disadvantages

  • not found.

Mitchell Mag-Pro Extreme 2000

Rating: 4.7

Mitchell Mag-Pro Extreme 2000

The product of a collaboration of Chinese and Japanese engineers, ranked by selective (and successful) strengthening of key components of the mechanical structure. The main application of the Mitchell Mag-Pro Extreme 2000 was found among fans of twitching – the demeanor of the model is very well adapted for jerking. The line intensity of the composite spool (for its dimensions) is colossal: about 300 meters of thread with a section of 0.25 millimeters.

The gear ratio of the Mitchell Mag-Pro Extreme 2000 (5.2: 1) makes it prone to rapid, unexpected actions – 86 centimeters of line is placed on the spool in one handle rotation. Unfortunately for beginners (and amateurs), all this splendor has one small drawback, expressed in the cost parameter. As a result, with a very “strong” performance, the reel is not very popular among the fishing masses, completing mainly professional spinning rods.

Advantages

  • reinforced titanium shaft of the mechanism;

  • lightweight composite body (as a result, 231 grams of net weight);

  • imprisonment for maneuverable actions;

  • low susceptibility to aging (higher working life).

disadvantages

  • high price.

Okuma Helios HSX-20FD 8 + 1bb

Rating: 4.7

Okuma Helios HSX-20FD 8 + 1bb

The Okuma Helios HSX-20FD 8 + 1bb light reel, sharpened for durability and good strength conditions, also deserves getting into the rating. The body of the twitching reel is made using the proprietary Torsion Control Armor technology, which increases the rigidity of the structure and allows you to control the twisting of the line. Eight stainless steel bearings significantly improve the smooth running of the rotating parts and reduce the chance of seizing. The line intensity of the spool (in comparison with competitors) is not the worst: 220 meters with a cross section of 0.15 millimeters will fully satisfy the needs of light twitching.

As for the opinions of consumers, the main factor for them is the lightness of the coil. 180 grams is the best result in the selection, giving the minimum increase to the total weight of the inventory.

Advantages

  • light weight (180 grams);

  • eight bearings in the mechanism;

  • robust and lightweight anodized aluminum gear train.

disadvantages

  • not found.

SHIMANO EXAGE 2500 FD

Rating: 4.6

SHIMANO EXAGE 2500 FD

A lightweight mid-range twitching reel, suitable for more gentle jerking. The 250 gram reel has a spacious spool that can hold up to 240 meters of line with a cross section of 0.20 mm. The friction brake starts to lower the line already at 3 kilograms of load, which is frankly not enough for twitching. But the smoothness of the movements leaves a pleasant impression, ensuring high accuracy of actions and proper winding of the line when fishing for fish. Actually, the smooth running is provided by four rolling bearings with increased service life (and with protection against salt exposure).

As noted by users, SHIMANO EXAGE 2500 FD is excellent when fishing on the seas, rivers and mountain waters. In view of this versatility, the cost of the model does not look too high, but it can still scare off beginners.

Advantages

  • spare spool included;

  • optimal gear ratio for tweezers (5.0: 1);

  • imprisonment for light and ultralight;

  • The optimum ratio of price and quality.

disadvantages

  • low load capacity of the braking device.
