Shimano Alivio RC Reel

The Shimano Alivio RC Reel is a fast action spinning reel that has been designed to give anglers on a budget the kind of quality they deserve. Constructed from XT-7, Shimano’s go-to material when it is looking to construct a reel that is hardwearing, tough, and lightweight, this Alivio RC is an outstanding performer for its price point. Fitted with an AR-C spool, Shimano’s trademark design with an angled spool lip, this reel gives you outstanding line lay every time. This line lay is aided by Varispeed, Shimano’s oscillation technology that has revolutionised casting and ensures a parallel line lay each time – enabling you to achieve the precision you require on the bank.

The retrieve gives equally as precise results. Super Stopper II eliminates rearward backplay when the handle is set in anti-reverse, giving this reel extreme fish fighting power. Dyna-balance aids the retrieve further by reducing reel wobble, ensuring you are in full control at all times. With an impressive gear ratio of 4.6:1 you can be confident even when you are tackling the biggest and most hard fighting of fish. Two ball bearings (including one roller ball) ensure that this reel performs smoothly and won’t experience any premature wear and tear.

The Shimano Alivio RC is available in four sizes. The 1000 size is 235g, the 2500 size is 275g, and the 4000 size is 375g. The 3000 size has been designed with a shallow spool, making it ideal for those anglers who want the casting power of the Alivio without holding excessive amounts of line of their needs. This size is 280g. As you can see, all the reels are exceptionally lightweight, making them ideal for the junior angler looking to get to grips with spin fishing. Shimano has been producing reels since 1970 and this Alivio RC showcases all the experience the company has gained over the past 40 years.
