Shimano designed the all-new Catana FE family of spinning reels with precision, power and performance for the budget-minded angler looking to get out and enjoy a day on the water. Lighter than previous generations, the new Catana FE features a redesigned body and rotor combined with an upgraded handle knob and 3+1 bearings for smoother reeling performance. Catana FE also features Shimano's G-Free Body and Propulsion Line Management System for all-day comfort and trouble-free casting. Without sacrificing performance, anglers can rely on Catana to get out on the water and have fun.
G-Free Body technology has been developed to shift the reel's center of gravity closer to the rod. By moving the center of gravity closer to the angler’s hand, the G-Free Body helps to reduce fatigue and enhance casting comfort.
Propulsion Line Management System
The most obvious component of the Propulsion Line Management System is the new Propulsion Spool Lip design. Through tens of thousands of casting tests and computer simulations, Shimano’s new spool lip design provides longer casting distances than a standard spool lip design while also preventing backlashes and wind knots from forming.
