Seems to be a variety of different manufacturers ideas on FS sizes. Been collecting a few reels for the coarse / pike fishing and even with the same manufacturer the sizes are different. Shimano baitrunner 5000 is smaller than a Shimano 4000 and the Shimano 4000 is larger than a Finnor 4000. Finnor 5000 is way bigger than the Shimano 5000. Freakin` minefield.

At your age it's hard to take it all in! Best stick to your high Heels Stan you know your size! lol.

"Big pits" Carp waffle.run bigger per numbers than baitrunners and spinning reels another size range in Shimano
Daiwa have there numbering system ranges and you have to convert between brands on that plus there just Japanese so are strange anyway.

It wouldn't be my first choice in footwear but certainly no shame in it.!
