Shimano Biomaster 4000FB with FREE Power Knob Spinning Reel Fishing Power Pro.
Owning a Biomaster FB reel is no ordinary business. It will take you well beyond the limits of conventional fishing, challenging you to perform at a level past anything you will have encountered in your civilian life. You are likely to learn more about yourself and what you are capable of, both physically and mentally, than you would have thought possible.
It is the Shimano high end reel common features that is allowing this Biomaster range to execute a full-frontal assault to its noncombatant opponents in Australia’s new market of spinning reels.
Just like an Army Commando that works hard for long hours and must be all round tough, this spinning reel is able to run incredible smooth, even under heavy loads, with the new X Ship system. As we tend to fish heavier with smaller reels, the drive gear material changed to ultra strong and light aluminium, as well as the body material into aluminium, to operate effectively and without signs of undue stress, panic or excessive fear when exposed to heavy duty fishing conditions!
Its direct-action type commando camouflage façade, coupled with the ‘SR’ Concept of smooth, strong, silent and reliance, ARC spool technology, Aluminium Frame, lightweight XT7 rotor, 7 ARB bearings and 1 roller bearing, makes is respond effectively to any lethal fishing challenge.
But beware, because of its military appearance, people will be nervous about approaching you when you are using this Biomaster!

Shimano Special Features:
Aluminium - Superior aircraft-grade Aluminium material. A6063 aluminium is used for its increased corrosion resistance and A7075 is used for it's extremely low mass resulting in lower start-up inertia
X-Ship - By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with our S-ARB bearings and integrating a bigger drive gear, Shimano increased the gearing efficiency and power. This results in a fishing reel with ultra-light handle rotation; less effort and power giving a perfect rotation even under heavy loads
Paladin Gear Durability Enhancement - Using a special cold forged aluminium drive gear and a hardened brass pinion gear. Reels equipped with the Paladin Gear Durability Enhancement will retain their out-of-the-box smoothness much longer than before. In fact, testing has shown that this combination is more durable than an all-stainless steel drivetrain while maintaining the smoothness that Shimano is famous for.
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 it has been determined that this new spool lip design provides longer casting distances than a standard spool lip design while preventing backlashes and wind knots from forming. It also allows the line to flow off of the spool in smaller loops during the cast which means less slap on the stripper guide. This means longer casts with less friction. The Propulsion spool also utilises a long stroke design to further enhance the casting distance. Furthermore, there is less bouncing of the line on the spool lip like on a standard spinning spool. Because of the unique shape of the Propulsion spool, the line flows consistently off of the spool. So, with a standard spool, friction alternates from heavy to light as the line slaps the spool lip. This causes backlash and inconsistent line speeds. The Propulsion spool lip provides consistently light friction to overcome these situations.
Aero Wrap II Oscillation System - Aero Wrap II is a worm gear oscillation system with a specially designed pitch to create optimal oscillation speeds for the Propulsion Spool Lip design. It provides uniform line lay and winding shape to prevent loss of energy during the cast while providing longer casts than other oscillation systems. So, casting distance increases with less effort required
S A-RB Bearings - These bearings have been through the same process as our A-RB bearings, but feature shields on both sides of the bearings that reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting the bearing's rotation.
SR-Concept - The SR-Concept combines the new concept of Reliance with all aspects of the S-Concept: Smooth, Silent and Strong. The Reliance Concept, or R-Concept, means that dreams in reel design are now evolving into reality. The result of the use of the new S-R Concept in design is the development of many exciting new features.
Cold Forged Aluminium Spool - These spools provide increased strength and durability over diecast aluminum or graphite spools.
Power Roller - The special design of the Shimano Power Roller significantly reduces line twist during the retrieve and is a big advantage when using thin mono and braid.
E.I. Anti-Corrosion Surface Treatment - After the anodisation process is finished, a second layer of surface treatment is added. This treatment is forced into the remaining surface impurities. This gives salt no hideout and also results in an extremely smooth to-the-touch finish. A reel with E.I. treatment has more than double the corrosion resistance of a standard anodised reel.
Dyna Balance - Reduces reel wobble and allows produces ultra smooth performance.
Super Stopper II - With the reel set in anti-reverse mode you'll find zero free-play on the handle thanks to Super Stopper II. Unerringly positive every time, its practical benefits include micro increment settings of quiver tips or specialist bite indicators and faster hook setting.
AR-C Spool Management System - Through tens of thousands of casting tests and computer simulations it has been determined that this new AR-C spool lip design provides longer casting distances than a standard spool lip design while preventing backlashes and wind knots from forming. It also allows the line to flow off the spool in smaller loops during the cast, which means less slap on the stripper guide. This means longer casts with less friction.
