The Aero BB is a great value front drag reel that offers versatile performance for float and feeder anglers, and is fitted with an anti-reverse facility. The understated graphics fit perfectly with many Shimano rods, especially the Aero float and feeder rods.

Available in sizes 4000 and 5000 to cover most float fishing situations, and ideal for medium to heavy feeder fishing for larger fish like carp and bream. Feeder anglers will also appreciate the easy to use round metal line clip, which is perfect for accurate casting.

Inside the sleek body of the Aero BB is Shimano’s top rated 'Cold Forged Hagane Gear and X-Ship system'. This combination is renowned for powerful efficient winding and long lasting reliability, ensuring your reel will maintain its peak performance almost indefinitely.

Other features that standout are the AR-C Spool crafted from Cold Forged Aluminium for improved casting and line management, plus a handle that screws straight into the main gear for ‘play-free’ directness. Each model includes a line reducer to reduce the spool capacity of the reel, making all models perfect for both mono and braided lines.

Key Features:

  • G Free Body Technology - By moving the center of gravity closer to the angler’s hand, the G Free Body helps to reduce fatigue and enhance casting comfort.
  • Hagane Drive Gear is produced by Shimano’s cold forging technology - delivering a long lasting smoothness, strength, lightness and power at the very heart of the reel.
  • The spool has a special spool ring shape. This creates a rectifying effect on the line and realizes both suppression of line trouble and long casting performance.
