This light travel package is suited perfectly for any light and general estuary fishing conditions, meaning it's perfect when chasing species like bream, flathead, whiting, blackfish and many other typical estuary species. It's a high quality set up at a price you won't find anywhere else.
Why you ask? The 3 piece Sentire Nano rod was rod built for light fishing applications, and so to was the Stradic FK 2500 reel. The line (that's pre-spooled by us using our spooling machine) is the perfect all-rounder breaking strain, at 10lb you can fish for basically any typical estuary fish without issues. The 8lb leader is also great for just about any species, it's thin and light enough to chase bream and whiting, and strong enough for bigger or faster fish like flathead or salmon.

The Reel - Shimano Stradic FK 2500HG Reel
With the Stradic FK 2500 Reels Shimano have bettered the already efficient Stradic reels, and they've done so specifically to address the biggest issue in fishing gear durability - the salt. The Stradic FK reels have had upgraded features added such as Shimano's S A-RB anti-rust bearings, and also their Core Protect technology on the roller clutch, the drag, the body and the line roller, both of which ensure the saltwater is kept away from the most important areas of the reel and the durability is kept to a maximum.
The Hagane body implemented in the design of the reels allows an extremely rigid metal frame that won't twist or flex under load, so no crank power will be lost when fighting a fish.
The cold forged Hagane gears are also an awesome feature of the FK range as they provide a clean cut gear with extra strength and smoothness, which ultimately provides the most strived for quality in Shimano reels‚Ä¶durability.
