a saltwater-rated ultra light -- what a concept. spooled up and ready to jumpt into the ocean. i do wish, however, that it came with a spare spool. ultralights are subject to getting spooled or broken off.

In addition, I'm greatful to FishUSA for their product knowledge,(they answered a question I had about this reel that Shimano didn't)good price, [...]Thanks FishUSA.

Shimano Syncopate 1000 - Great Reel

Erie, PA

About Me:
Avid Fisher
I have been fishing trout streams in PA for many years and have used a good many reels. I like the Quick-Fire feature of this reel, especially with lures. I used the 1000 model with 6 lb. test. Usually I have a lot of trouble with birds nests in the line. This season I did a lot of fishing and I had virtually no birds nests. And I can cast farther with this reel than with other reels. I have had no problems with it. I highly recommend this reel.

Pros: Reliable, Easy Casting, Line Doesn't Tangle, Smooth Drag System, Durable, Smooth Reeling

I use this reel for jigging for bass, walleye, and trout, I fish every chance I get, at least twice a week, and this reel is great. The quick fire casting system makes one hand casting a breeze, and the reeling action is very smooth. It is a great reel for the money.
