All the Numbers (1000, 2500, 3000, 4000, 5000, etc) simply indicate the size of the spool. The bigger the number, the more line you can spool to your fishing reel. Basically, the numbers are used to explain that a Shimano reel with 1000 spool can hold around 150 meters of nylon fishing line in size 1 (Japanese Sizing).
Shimano use a simple 2-letter date code, printed on each component or on a sticker or label. You`ll usually find this near the component`s serial code. The first letter indicates the year, the second stands for the month.
Shimano have 3 ratios PG, HG and XG, the lowest gear ratio is usually known as standard gear or Power Gear (PG), next is High Gear (HG) and finally eXtra high Gear (XG).
Please contact our Customer Service Team at 877-577-0600 or email us at [email protected] and one of our agents will supply a prepaid shipping label to have your reel sent back to us for further evaluation.
Model numbers are on the sides of the housing/body of the reel, and on the spool.

As the first step, Shimano started to manufacture reels. In 1971, it released the DUX spinning reel by harnessing technologies refined in the manufacture of bicycle components, such as gears and body structures. The market expectations were high because this was Shimano`s first spinning reel.
You may see reels expressed as 5 + 1 BB. That means there are five ball bearings and one anti-reverse bearing.
Contrary to common belief, Shimano reels are not made in the USA but in Japan. Here, at the company`s headquarters in the city of Sakai, all of Shimano`s high-end, premium reels are manufactured and shipped out to the world.
As one of the `big three` drivetrain component manufacturers (the other two being SRAM and Campagnolo), Shimano groupsets and parts are always well-made, usually well-regarded and often well-priced. If you`re looking for the latest news and reviews of Shimano products, this is where you need to look.

Spinning Reel Line Capacity

Most manufacturers are printing the number on the side of the spinning reel. It states capacity as a pound-test weight/length of line or diameter of line/length of fishing line. For example: 0.20mm/420Yds.

Typically when people think of a 4000 size reel, they think of a bigger, heavier, “do everything” reel. But there is not much difference between the sizing of the 3000 versus the 4000. The body frames appear to be the exact same size and there is only a fraction of an ounce difference in weight.
