so how did you go? Got any more info? 

So far I’ve found out the nasci has 5+1 bearings it looks a lot better then the nasci FB and the new nasci (nasci FC) is silver and has a screw in the handle like the Stradic FK or Stradic ci4+FB a screw in with a hinge . If they keep it the same price which I think they will it will be a decent upgrade from the previous nasci im pretty sure it has a gear upgrade to I think the gear upgrade is a worm gear oscillation system now instead of the locko motive level wind system that was in the previous nasci although this is not confirmed yet overall pretty decent upgrade

 

. The new nexave is pretty much a upgraded sienna FG unfortunately the new nexave range only goes up to a 5000 no bigger 8000 size reels that was found in the previous series . The nexave features the same gearing system found in the sienna FG has the same ball bearing count but has a non plastic drag knob which is sealed a slightly better drag upgrade to .the handle is the same as the sienna FG but has the same knob as the Stradic the new nexave is also a black and blue reel .overall pretty decent upgrade and would pay the extra $20 for it over the sienna the new nexave looks like it would be good enough for regular lure fishing to. 
 

the new sustain is black and gold has 8+1 ball bearings and basically is a slight upgrade from the vanford has all the new silent drive and mirco module And the rest of new technology’s found in the new Stradic/vanford range . It’s basically like when the Stradic FK and Stradic Ci4+FB came out the sustain come out .slightly better then the Stradic series it’s the same case here with the new Stradic/vanford range although it’s a big upgrade from the 2016 models .

 

and finally Shimano brought out another spheros and exsence which I don’t know much about but I assume they are similar reels to their older model just with all the new tech and maybe a added ball bearing or weight reduction or maybe more seals or water protection

So like previous models, it's a dressed up stradic (this time FL) and an extra bearing? (oop, this time 2 extra!)

 

I have no doubt Shimano will be sure to charge an extra $50-100 a pop for the visual pleasure.  😜

 

My first foray into Sustains was the one before FG, then owned a few FGs for a  while before wondering why I bothered over a stradic. Sold them all to shift to Stradic FLs which feel better. Now it just seems like the Stradics offer way better value for money.

Yeah I looked into the sustains before and I’ve just found they are overpriced.  stradics preform just as well in my opinion and it seems it will be the same with the new sustain . This video explains all the differences between the 2016/2017 stradics compared to the 2016/2017 sustain

I’ve had a play with the new nasci and definitely a great little reel for the price point ($169)

Yeah I might look into purchasing one to fit 30lb braid the 5000 size but not until atleast a year i got enough reels for now and I already got a 5000 sedona  and gonna spool it up with 300m of 20lb . They look like great reels and there price should be around $140-$150 the RRP is always higher  on the shimano site usually then new shimano reels come out they are fairly expensive for example I spent awhile looking at my Stradic FL until I saved enough money and I luckily managed to get one for $250 at BCF with their price beat policy I found another one online that was cheaper then BCF but when they first came out and for the first year they were 2019-late 2020 they were $269 at cheapest for the 1000/2500 now the absolute cheapest is like $230-250.

I’d stay far away from these reels many people like Alan hawk tackle advisors and many regular fishos don’t have anything nice to say about these reels . Most of these reels are made out of cheap weak parts . ATM for spinning reels the most reliable brands are daiwa Shimano penn not in any order there are a few good spin reels outside these brands such as  1 or a few by okuma fin nor ATC and other brands but for the most part the top 3 daiwa Shimano penn are the most reliable and best value for money when it comes to spin reels . As for a bait runner I’d have a look at the okuma ceymar and see if they are any decent if they aren’t decent you’ll most likely have to buy a shimano if you want a reel that will preform well and last

I love my daiwa and shimano gear but they are pricing themselves out of the market for me.

Link below is from Choice magazine.

Has anyone tried these and what is you opinion on them?

Several months back I was thinking about getting the "sharky model" but I was going to get one based on the fact that if any parts broke or  needed replacing then I would most likely have to throw it in the bin, as dealing with Chinese companies selling cheap products from past experience can be problematic at best.  I looked at a few vid's on youtube where the guys in the USA have bought some to try out and they said they weren't too bad (considering their price point) but no long term reviews.

In the end I opted out of getting one as the reliability of it would have always been on my mind when fishing and just ended up buying another Penn reel. Actually I bought the cheapo Abu reel first but returned it straight away after noticing the flex in the reels neck and then bought the Penn.

      Tonight the conditions look alright for a fish so I grabbed a few rods.
      setup 1 shimano stradic FL 1000 10lb Gliss 6lb FC leader matched with light short telescopic rod 
      setup 2 shimano stradic ci4+FB 2500 12lb braid 14lb fc leader matched with daiwa Td nero 2-4kg rod
      Setup 3 shimano sedona 5000C 19kg/42lb gliss 70lb mono leader matched with vintage Jarvis walker delux short stiff fibreglass rod 
      So I grabbed a few rods and headed to a Bay Area that is surrounded by 2 breakwalls leaving the name of the location out as i don’t want everyone to know the spot .
      anyway got to the spot first thing I notice when I walk along the jettie a school of yellow tail first thing I do is rig up setup 3 then grab setup 1 and bait a small hook with bread not long the bread is eaten by a yellowtail and I got a live bait for setup 3 I cast setup 3 out and wait . I try fishing with bread for a bit on setup 1 (note not near the yellowtail school ) and all I’m getting is my bait nipped by small butter bream and stripys so I try casting slightly under the jettie as I watch my unweighted bread slowly sink down I see a big quick silver flash come up from nowhere and it literally made my bread vanish 1 second later my line is flying off my spool into the water and I flip my bail and set the hook .after a decent fight My dad manages to land the fish . A nice quality bream was landed and after a few photos was brain spiked and bleed out .can’t remember if it was 33 or 34cm . Anyway no more decent size bream were around I got 1 small bream afterwards but nothing legal I grab setup 2 and put on a cheap metal vibe I got from eBay ages ago after some casting around I keep catching these things me and @AUS-BNE-FISHO. Think they may be a type of pony fish or something along those lines after I catch props 3-4 of these things I stop using the vibe and tie on a squid jig unfortunately no squid or cuttlefish takes the squid jig . I rig up a simple bait rig and put a little piece of mullet on setup 2 intended for flathead or bream after I do that I check setup 3 . Setup 3 had a liveie on it for over a hour now so I assumed the liveie either died or got nipped at . I bring it up and the liveie is in the same condition as it was before I caught it for live bait it was alive as anything I release the liveie back into the water and it swims off fine I then rig up a mullet fillet on setup 3 and cast it out hoping for a bully or a big Jew .time goes by and I decide to grab setup 1 again and see if anything wants to take the bread the same fish I was catching on the vibes kept smashing the bread left right and Center I ended up keeping 4 of these fish for crab pot bait . After that I decided to call it a night and pack up as I bring setup 3 in notice there is barely any bait left just the skin so something definitely had a good go at my bait just don’t know what .
      Basic conditions 
      Last 2 hours of the run out tide 
      time 6:30-9:00PM
      moon waning crescent 7 days till new moon 
      temp 20 degrees

      less then a week ago I won a eBay auction and got a shimano stradic ci4+FB 2500 second hand with a full spool of decent 12lb braid for $195 reel is in great condition smooth and light weight. I took the reel apart last night to remove a little excess grease as it was serviced by shimano before being sold on the eBay auction.reel is running nice and smooth now other then that I’ve given it a good wipe down and got rid of any dust I could find on and inside the reel also I stripped about the first 2 metres of braid off that reel as that first 2 metres was damaged the rest is in good condition Gave the braid a coating in silicone spray and it’s ready to fish . Awesome reel will be matching it up with a atomic arrows estuary 3-5kg 2pc when I get that rod although the reel is light enough to use on my bream surface so I might give it a test run on the bream surface .when I get the arrows estuary the reel will be mainly used for flathead tailor snapper

      I recently bought a Stradic ci4+FB the 2016 model and gave it a good wipe down and took it apart to make sure it was in working order . After that the reel was excellent but whenever the spool gets low to the spool when I’m  reeling it in it makes a sound and I think it touches the rotor . It’s very minor and and barely noticeable and if I lean the reel slightly downwards it doesn’t do it but I was wondering if anyone knows how to fix this minor  problem/issue

      hey just seeing if anyone has any bushy lure legend series around Brisbane they want to sell ? 
    • By Breaming with bro
      I’m thinking shimano are bringing out a new nasci and sedona just like i theorised as they are 4 years+ old now .
      Daiwa brought out a bunch of new reels to they seem pretty interesting it also seems they don’t use as much labelling anymore lol daiwa had a label for almost every part of the reel before like for their special line clip and also their added gear support silent oscillation and also their CRBB
