Shimano Sienna Spinning Fishing Reel
About this deal
Comments: What a great reel for a reasonable price! I like that it's so light and can use it all day long. Shimano reels are consistently good. I prefer the 2500 series.
Comments: I've had this reel for a year and a half and this was the reel i started fishing on and this is a good reel for the price and its been beat and thought everything rainstorms and 30 degree weather and its holding up perfect and i havent had any maintenance done on it and its a overall banger reel for the price i have the 2500 size and in the old navy blue with sparkles colorway which is way better. As you can see from the official Shimano specs, the 500 model is comparatively light at 6.3oz, and the weight for the largest model (the 4000) ranges up to 11.3oz.This reel – paired with either braid and with a fluoro or mono leader or a high-quality monofilament line straight through – is also suitable for throwing lures for walleye and other freshwater and estuary-dwelling sportfish. Comments:Got the 2000 & 3000 for inshore fishing. They handle real good in salt. Very smooth and easy to cast. Using 10lb on the 2000 and 15lb on the 3000. Mainly using this with finesse type lures and popping corks. Awesome reel for all levels of fisherman but especially good entry level if you want to get into Shimano reels. Highly recommend this reel. I have tested this reel over the last few months, on several different fishing trips and multiple outings. I used 12 lbs. test mono, and mostly spinnerbait and jerkbait lures.
Comments:I only use a spinning reel once or twice a year, but when I do, the Shimano Sienna takes care of business. I am always tempted to get a Stradic, but simply haven't felt the need. It is quite remarkable how good the less expensive Shimano reels are. If you are an experienced angler looking to buy a reel for a new fisherman, a youngster or perhaps you want a spare reel for your own use, you’ll be surprised at how good the Sienna feels. Whilst it might not have the technology of the more expensive Shimano models, it is still a Shimano and that counts for a lot. It’s a reel that any young or inexperienced angler would want to own and use.
You are starting to move into a different class of spinning reels here. The Shimano Sahara has a G-free body, and Hagane cold forged along with corrosion-resistant bearings, which boost longevity. It also has X-Ship technology, which helps ensure the pinion gear and bearings remain in perfect alignment, and boasts a graphite frame, rotor, and side plate. One for someone looking for a more quality and more durable reel than the Shimano Sienna and Shimano Sedona reels can offer. Comments:I love the new Sienna Fg. The 2000 model is very smooth, and quiet and for the price. The quality can't be beaten.
