Offering the performance and reliability Shimano is known for at an incredible value, the Shimano 2021 Nasci FC Spinning Reels boast updated features and technologies often seen well outside of its price bracket. This versatile reel series is perfect for a wide range of applications in both freshwater and saltwater. This latest generation of Nasci Spinning Reels includes the same great features that made the previous generation a favorite of many anglers, including the cold-forged HAGANE Gear technology that provides unparalleled gear durability compared to reels with diecast or machined gear construction. Also returning is Shimano's X-Ship and CoreProtect technologies to maximize winding power and keep your reel's internals protected from the elements. New to the lineup of features is SilentDrive, a technology brought down from Shimano's premier line of spinning reels. SilentDrive increases gear tolerances to a micron level to reduce unnecessary noise and vibration for increased reeling performance. With a size range spanning from ultra-light and ice fishing to a variety of inshore applications, anglers of all varieties will be able to find the perfect spinning reel for the job. Engineered to perform with Shimano quality and attention to detail, the newly redesigned Nasci FC punches well above its weight in typical Shimano fashion.
