For the money this is one of the best spinning reels I have owned. Very smooth, light, and the drag has held up really well to Kings and steelys so far. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for an affordable, but reliable spinning reel. Shimano has never steered me wrong.
Pros: Cost, Performance

Solid Little Reel

Reviewer

About Me:
Casual/ Recreational
This is a pretty solid little reel. I have the 1000 and spooled it up with some 4lb test mono, casts amazing for such a compact reel. Very smooth on the retrieve, have experienced no line twist or tangles in 3 months of fishing since I got this reel, so a total of 10 fishing trips without issue. Haven't caught any real big fish yet with it, but I did crank in a good size pickerel with plenty of fight in him, the drag was pretty smooth but felt just a bit under powered to me. Overall, for the money, this would be a tough reel to beat for all around smooth performance with SUPER long casts.
Pros: Line Doesn't Tangle, Easy Casting, Smooth Reeling
Cons: none
Best Uses: Trolling, Shore Casting, River Fishing
Not a bad product for the price.

This is a well constructed reel; a good, economical way to go. Did you read: SALT WATER APPROVED? I will be purchasing a second reel for my kayak passengers. Note: I have not had this reel on the water yet. But by thorough examination, it should perform well.
