Description

Shimano Saros FA Spinning reels have been redesigned using Shimano’s newest proprietary XGT7 material. These reels feature a super strong high tech frame, rotor and sideplate construction providing an exceptionally solid feel. Combined with X-Ship technology for solid cranking power, the four new Saros FA also feature Rapid Fire Drag for easy and accurate adjustments when fighting fish. Just realized it’s bigger than you thought? Rapid Fire Drag will help you land it.

Saros Spinning reels bring new meaning to light tackle, but do not mistake its small size for timidness. Utilizing the new Paladin Gear Durability Enhancement and Propulsion Spool Lip, durability, reliability and performance are nothing to worry about. Add in Shielded A-RB bearings, a sealed Maintenance Port, and thread-in machined Aluminum handle, along with many other features, and the Saros FA will be a performer for years to come.

  • X-Ship Technology
  • Rapid Fire Drag

 Great reel
Pros: Smooth reel, Awesome drag
Comments: This is a great reel for the price. I have used this reel 8 different times now and have caught a lot of fish. I got the 1000 series for crappie fishing using 4lb monofilament and the drag is great, the reel is smooth and has great power. I landed a 5lb 4oz. Spotted bass and landed a 8lb blue cat at the lake last week crappie fishing and let me tell you this reel definitely passed the test. To add to this I again must thank fishusa for great and fast service.

ma, wor
terrible (from prior model)
Comments: [...] For this price i was expecting an amazing reel. Shimano really did a terrible job on this reel. It is not a smooth reel and just not worth the money. I would def. consider a different reel next time. I am stuck with this reel but looking forward to replacing it as soon as possible. I would not recommend this to anyone.
