The Shimano Hyperloop reels feature classical styling, coupled with high-tech features like the Super Stopper and Varispeed line lay.

Weight: 320g 1 stainless steel bearing Line capacity (mm/m): 8-240/10-200/12-160 Gear ratio: 72 Varispeed: Shimano’s revolutionary ‘Varispeed’ System uses two specially designed gears (one is oval and the other a remarkable square shape!) forr good quality line lay, giving precise, long and accurate casting.

Great beginner & shallow water sea reel I bought my 4000FB independently but I’ll review it here.I was looking for a low cost reel to marry up with a offshore boat-based 8ft 1-2oz (15lb line rating) 244g spinning rod, after asking on a forum this was recommended and duly ordered. I’ve loaded the reel with Spiderwire ez-braid 20lb and 300 yards fits on the spool perfectly – allowing less than a millimetre to the top of the spool lip.A couple of statistics that are on the shimano site:Weight: 310gMax Drag: 6Kg (the rear drag is less – hence choosing the front drag)The innards are a proper multi-disk drag with a single tabbed disk, the spool is plastic so this is a decent drag system but don’t expect to be pulling in big fish for long fights as the drag may give up the ghost due to heat. Initially I was concerned with the slight wobble that the spool has when the drag is light, however in use that didn’t pose a problem with lures of 20g-42g (1.5oz) and tidal flow drag setting…
