Great reeel   (from prior model)
Pros: Reliable, Line Doesn't Tangle, Easy Casting, Smooth Reeling, Smooth Drag System
Best Uses: Shore Casting, Ocean Fishing
Comments: I mainly use this reel for inshore fishing. Along with the St. Croix Mojo Surf rod I get further distance casting which allows me to get my bait out in the channels where the big game fish are. The reel is easy to adjust to your comfort likings and balances the St, Croix MOJO rod out perfect. Defintely a great combo to have. I see better casting results as far as accuracy and distance with no tangle ups.

Comments: Having (2) Shimano 3000 @ 8 years old and working great, figure a 4000 will hold more line. Fishing the Columbia River for Salmon, this Salt Water Tund Rig meets the needs for the River just fine. Easy and light weight Thunnis is an pleasure to fish with on a 13' Noodle type rod.
