The best thirty dollar reel out there!
Pros: smooth casting, Reliable, quality reel for the price
Best Uses: all purpose
Comments: I own 3 of these ranging from the 500 for ice fishing to the 4000 for bass. All are very smooth operating reels. Better quality than other manufacturer's reels that sell for more. They lack some of the features found on the Shimano Sedona or Spirex models but for 29.95 you will be satisfied. Buy with confidence.

Great Overall Reel
Pros: Smooth Drag System, Durable, smooth reel, Lightweight easy crankin
Best Uses: Trout, steelhead
Comments: I got this reel for a trip to Erie after my old Shakspeare broke. Best reel under 50$ no doubt about it. I caught 5 steelhead all ranging from 24-31 inches and this reel performed flawlessy. so flawless i bought another one for my bass rod. you cant go wrong with this reel.
 Bang for the buck.
Pros: Value, Smooth Drag System, Reliable
Comments: Sweet reel for 30$. Own more expensive Shimanos, and while you can tell they are nicer, the difference is very marginal and absolutely not proportional. Very decent reel plan to enjoy for years to come!

Pros: Cost, Performance
Comments: 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.

Solid Little Reel
Pros: Line Doesn't Tangle, Easy Casting, Smooth Reeling
Best Uses: Trolling, Shore Casting, River Fishing
Comments: 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.

Best Uses: Shore Casting, River Fishing
Comments: My old spinning reel finally wore out and while I wanted a good quality reel, i did not want to take a 2nd mortgage out to pay for it. This reel has good performance at a reasonable price.

 Quality Reel for thrifty consumer
Pros: Smooth Drag System, Smooth Reeling, Reliable
Best Uses: Ocean Fishing, Shore Casting
Comments: 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.
