The Aernos FB sets new standards in the hugely popular P4 series. For the first time ever a P4 reel features X-Ship gearing, once only found on Shimano’s most expensive reels. This addition increases winding efficiency and smoothness making the Aernos FB suitable for many freshwater fishing situations. The M Compact body is made from lightweight XGT-7 composite and contains 5 Shielded Stainless Steel bearings and a roller bearing for smooth assured performance when under pressure.
Finished in an ultra dark blue satin finish, with red detailing on the spool and handle, the Aernos FB has a distinctive look that sets it apart from many other reels.

X-Ship is a combination of features that work together to create much greater efficiency. By positioning the pinion gear close to the centre line of the large diameter drive gear, more power is transferred from the handle to the rotor. The pinion gear is also supported by two Shimano A-RB roller bearings. This creates more stability.
XGT-7 is an improved version of the tried and trusted Shimano XT-7 composite material. Used on some of the newest mid-priced reels XGT-7 is lightweight and stiff.
Shimano AR-C Spool is a patented spool design with an angled spool lip. This design enables the line to leave the spool with less friction and in smaller coils resulting in longer more accurate casts. AR-C spools are proven to reduce backlash and wind knots when using braid. AR-C spools are now standard on almost all Shimano reels.
VariSpeed II oscillation system moves with two variable speeds to lay the line flat and smooth onto the spool. This provides troublefree, longer distant casts. Varispeed is found on budget and mid-priced Shimano reels.
Super Stopper II eliminates backward movement and free play in the handle when the reel is set in anti-reverse.
Dyna-Balance reduces wobble during the retrieve by counter balancing the rotor to enhance sensitivity and smoothness. By using computer balancing Shimano are able to redistribute the rotor weight to create eliminate vibrations.
The special grooved design of the Shimano Power Roller significantly reduces line twist and is a big advantage when using thin mono and braid.
