Shimano Symetre 2500 RD   (from prior model)
Pros: Rear drag is GREAT, Easy Casting, IT DOES THE WORK, Reliable, Smooth Drag System, Smooth Reeling
Cons: No spare spool for price
Best Uses:
Comments: I own several of the 2500 RD reels. I particularly like the rear drag system when fishing at night for walleyes and wipers. I also like the fact if I need to change spools I can do so quickly. The symetre reels have proven very dependable in a variety of fishing conditions. I like the anti reverse system that allows me to troll using rod holders and keep the line away from the reel and rod holder. The reels cast very well and are very smooth. About the only complaint is that shimano no longer includes a spare spool like they used to when buying a new reel.

GREAT REEL FOR THE MONEY !!!   (from prior model)
Pros: Rear drag is GREAT, Reliable, Smooth Drag System, Smooth Reeling, Durable
Cons: No spare spool for price
Best Uses: Trolling, Shore Casting, River Fishing, Lake Fishing
Comments: Shimano are very well built reels. This replaced a 30 year old ultralight that caught 1000's of fish and never let me down. Rear drag is a GREAT concept when playing big fish, as no fumbling with the front drag. Only wish they included a spare spool, couldn't be that much more.

I NOW OWN 4 SHIMANO REELS   (from prior model)
Pros: Smooth Drag System, IT DOES THE WORK, Line Doesn't Tangle, Durable, Reliable, Smooth Reeling, Easy Casting
Best Uses: Trolling, Shore Casting
Comments: MOSTLY LAKE FISHING BOTH TROLLING AND SHORE CASTING. THIS REEL GETS OUT THERE JUST A LITTLE FURTHER THAN THE OTHERS WITH EASE AND WITHOUT LINE PROBLEMS LIKE OTHER REELS IN THE PAST. THE QUICK ADJUSTABLE DRAG IS MY FAVORITE WHEN A BIG FISH HITS AND I NEED TO ADJUST TO THE CONDITIONS OF SIZE AND SURROUNDINGS. BOUGHT SECOND REEL AS RESERVE AND TALKING PIECE IN TROPHY ROOM.
