Bought this little reel for my godsons first fishing rod and I was amazed at how smooth it was for such a little reel. Shimano makes some of the best stuff in the business and this little reel is one of them. Can’t beat the price to mess around with anything from snappers to large mouth bass.

This reel is just amazing , i have had it for over 3 years, and dumped multiple times underwater and it still works great. Definitely a win for the price tag.
ProsDurable Powerful Cheap
ConsNone for the price tag

Great inshore reel
April 26, 2021
This is a great inshore reel for up here in the Northeast for fluke, stripers, and blues. Looking forwards to getting out on the water with it.

Reel performed well with 15 lb power pro braid. Fought sheepshead all day long and never skipped a beat. Outstanding for its size.

Used it upstate NY for ice fishing. Smooth and reliable. Can't go wrong with Shimano reels, even the lower end ones!
ProsVery affordable, no issues pulling perch and blue gills trough the ice.

Good little reel

Very small, lightweight, one of the smoothest reels I have. If there is any negative is that it doesn't have anti reverse.

Excellent budget reel
June 11, 2020
I am very impressed with this reel at $30. Very smooth and light. It does have a very slight knock when the spool hits top/bottom but it's extremely subtle and not annoying in the slightest. I would definitely buy this reel again.
ProsPrice Weight Good line capacity Casts well
ConsOnly one version has a high gear ratio

Spinning reel nut keeps loosening up while fishing !

Spool nut keeps loosening up out on the stream , recently purchased rod/reel combo before season

Best for it's price class, hands down!!
January 6, 2020
When I received this reel, opened it up, and put it on a pole, I was really taken by surprise how smooth and FAST this thing is. You can pay twice or three times more for another brand, or you can buy this one. I prefer to save $..
ProsSpeed, smoothness, PRICE!
ConsNo option to switch from anti-reverse

I love higher end reels but phew
November 18, 2019
The price may make you question its quality but I would say this is one fine freshwater reel. I personally have a bunch of higher end reels but as a beginner I’d buy this. It’s buttery smooth for its price. Im especially fond of the 1000 version for trout and crappie. Also a great loaner reel that you wouldn’t be so hurt if it got damaged by your newbie friends

Best $30 real!
November 15, 2019
Bought 2 of them for light inshore and freshwater. Second time using it, I caught and released an 18 inch halibut off the surf and reeled it in with so much ease. Very smooth for a $30 reel.
ConsNone so far
