The Shimano Speedcast is an efficient, long-range sniper of a reel. The combination of Shimano features in its spool and mechanisms give it a huge range, and it retrieves at a rate of 103cm per turn. All of this makes it phenomenal for long-distance casting. In addition, it has a 4.3:1 torque, giving it the power to make reeling in your catch a breeze. And on top of all this, it possesses the Instant Drag mechanism, making it fantastic for specimen anglers too!
Fishing Republic dates back to 1985 when the company’s founder and Executive Director, Steve Gross, established a business selling fishing flies and fly tying materials to fishing tackle wholesalers. In 2005, Fishing Republic opened our first store in Barnsley. Since then the company has grown to be the Largest Fishing Tackle retailer in the UK.
With the extensive angling knowledge within our company and the exceptional customer service we offer both in store and online, it’s clear to see why Fishing Republic is Number 1.
