The Aero XR is a technically advanced match and feeder reel containing all the attributes required by top competition anglers. It features anti-reverse action, a lightweight CI4+ body and rotor and advanced HAGANE gearing for unmatched performance. If you're a competitive angler, or if you fish with a float or feeder, and you want a reel that lives up to your abilities, the Aero XR is the answer.
All reels balance perfectly with the best Shimano Aero match and feeder rods, giving you an enviable combination that gives you a competitive edge. With their super-smooth, watertight drags and extra anti-reverse feature, you can control fish directly with the drag when using stronger lines, by reeling in when using fine lines, or by using a combination of both. The smallest size 3000 is perfect for all short-range float and feeder fishing, the medium size 4000 is ideal for heavier float or medium-range feeder fishing and the largest size 5000 is ideal for longer or heavy medium-range feeder fishing. With a G-Free CI4+ body and rotor, all models are remarkably light, with the 4000 size weighing only 250g, a significant reduction over competing models of the same size. An added benefit you can feel is the light rotation accuracy, which is a result of the CI4+ rotor construction and HAGANE Gear, X-SHIP, Silent Drive technology. Additional features include the best cold forged aluminum AR-C spools, (including a spare spool) with a line reducer to reduce the line capacity of the reel. The larger 5000 model has an additional reducer for use with braid when fishing long distance feeders. Power is delivered through a screw-on handle and a strong, secure metal line clip reinforces the XR's feeder fishing pedigree. Visually, the stealthy, understated look of the Aero XR is stunning and combined with advanced technology, it can't help but inspire your confidence to reach the highest level.
