A classic for estuary fishos both entry-level and budget conscious, the Shimano Nexave 2500FD is a great all-rounder when chasing just about anything you typically find in your local estuary including bream, flathead, whiting etc.
On top of the reel, it also comes with a spare spool so you can run multiple lines and change it up quickly and without having to buy multiple setups. e.g. you could have one spooled with braid for plastics and lure fishing and one with mono for bait fishing, or simply have one with light line and one with heavier line.
The Shimano Nexave FD reels feature a lightweight XT7 body. Fitted with a Propulsion spool for easy and accurate casting the Nexave FD reels also contain a Shimano roller bearing and ball bearing for smooth performance.
