Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 33 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid Performance - Very Reliable I own both this reel (Stradic FJ) and the lighterweight C14. This reel has a much more "solid" feel to it than the C14. Its quite a bit heavier, so it balances with more of my outfits than the C14 does. I use the C14 on my medium to light setups. If I had to make the choice between the FJ and the C14 I would personally go with the FJ based on personal preference. I just like the way it balances some of my med-heavy to heavy setups. Have had absolutely no problem with the reel. It is dependable, and the 3000 size reel combined with a medium-heavy rod allows you to get some big fish through thick cover. Handles 5 to 8 lb bass with ease... Great drag system... Works well with power pro and flurocarbon leader. It is my favorite reel; Hasn't let me down, and don't expect it to anytime soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice! I own four. Best spinning reels out there. Great product. July 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by STRADIC FJ UNBEATABLE!!! This is the first time i have ever wrote a review and i did so because this reel is WORTH it. Recently bought the ST3000FJ and i love it. This reel is worth every penny you will spend, even the tax. From the second it comes out of the box it starts to out perform every reel I have ever owned. I am currently selling my other HIGH end reels to start building an army of STRADICS. Propulsion Line Management System is awesome, SA-RB bearings make this reel operate like dream. Im not a salesmen i'm a blue collar weekend warrior who loves fishing, Two simple words and some advice. BUY IT!!! May 6, 2014

Details: 
I would like to pair a Shimano Stradic FJ Spinning reel (ST1000FJ) with a Browning Fishing Hi Power Spinning Rod (HP60LS). Are the two compatible? ie. will the rod holder of this rod PHYSICALLY fit the attatchment part of the Shimano reel? (I ask this because I have noticed that some reels have a 7cm x 1.5cm rod attatchment piece where others are only 5cm x 1.5cm.

A: 
My suggestion is if you already own this rod bring it into any local tackle shop and ask if you can try it on.

Most places will allow you to borrow the display model for a moment if you appear willing to buy.

I hope this helps

A: 
No spare spool. Most of the higher end reels out there no longer come with a spare spool. Spare runs a little over $60. But I will most likely order one anyway. Always good to have on hand.

A: 
No, sorry no extra spool. It is worth it to buy an extra spool if you fish with braided line. When my braid gets worn I pop off the spool put on an empty extra one and wind it one.

That way the old braid is at the bottom and the new stuff is the only stuff that typically touches the water.

I hope this helps

A: 
Do not put a $180 spinning reel on a $60 rod. Start with something comparable to a Shimano Compre or a Abu Garcia Vendetta. Extra dollars spent on the rod will enhance your fishing experience (and your success) more than spending dollars on a spinning reel.

A: 
I have mine on a 5'6" IM7 Berkley but the rod would really depend on your style of fishing. I would also pair this up with a bionic blade or the matching carbonlite. For something a bit less expensive perhaps a crappie maxx spinning rod on the IM6 blank. This is what I would purchase if I needed to replace the Berkley I currently have.

A: 
The difference between the two reels are the 3000 has 15 pounds of drag while the 4000 has 20 pounds of drag. The 4000 has more line capacity, and also it is a bit heavier than the 3000. Other than that they are pretty much the same!
