Having used the new 3000 sized Technium SFD reel model with the Speedcast feeder rod, I would recommend the slightly larger bodied 4000FD reel, as it has a much beefier presence and substance to it.
All Shimano reel fans will be pleased to notethat the latest five-reel 2014 Technium range is every bit as good, if not better, than ever. All boast tremendous cranking power thanks to their X-Ship gearing. They are tireless workers that will haul the heaviest of leads all day long without fail. Faultless oscillation gives an ironed-flat line lay, and the reels have superbly smooth front drag systems. All these features combine to put them up there with the best all-round coarse fishing reels anywhere.
