I’ve had this reel for multiple years now and it has been my best reel in my arsenal still. It’s strong, smooth and as always reliable.
ProsGreat drag, smooth, reliable
ConsSo far none

Use caution purchasing this real. I'm a huge Shimano reel fan, but the drag on this reel is unreliable. Have used it for two years and lost several fish due to the drag locking up. Once, it locked up so tight that pliers were required to loosen the drag knob which now bears permanent scars. There is considerable forum information about this known issue. Having said all that, with extra care to free up the drag and set it prior to each use the reel is smooth problem free otherwise. Still not a good investment.

My husband has been looking at this reel for along time asking friends, people he has seen fishing with this reel every question that you would imagine if it was any good. I finally decided to buy him one he loves it. It's smooth reeling,drag strong,holds braided line of 30 pounds just right for the type of fishing he uses for I would recommend this real.

By far my favorite freshwater reel. I fish on a lake next to my house and there are Crappie, bass and pike. I catch them with ease with my Sustain!

I have 2 of these reels that I use for stripers, blues, albies and bonito. Very light but they have held up well. The drag is smooth and sensitive. I highly recommend these reels.

My third Sustain in the FG line. So far I have used this reel for bass ponds, whiting in the near surf, specks and redfish. It has not been a disappointment. Very smooth action and reliable drag. Handles over-slot reds easily.
ProsSmooth. Great drag. Very versatile.

I owned numerous Stradics over the years and enjoyed them all.I tried other high end reels but nothing compares to the Sustain. It's smooth and I never got the casting distance that I get now.
Worth the Extra Money
January 30, 2014
After owning several stradics I finally decided to step up to the sustain and I have never looked back. The reels are extremely light but still retain the drag to pull that big slob out of the bushes. The reels also look great with their black and silver color scheme.
November 18, 2013
The sustain reel is definelty worth every penny I paid. I have owned Stradics and this has become my new favourite spinning reel.So much power and finesse at the same time. Drag is incredible.

very nice reel! super smooth and casts superfar! have 50lb power pro line and am very pleased with this reel.
Prosquality feel, lots of cranking power, looks
April 13, 2013
very nice reel. t.d. spooled it up with 15# power pro superslick and it casts twice as far as my conquer! the reel stand is a nice touch for people who don't like to get there reels scratched up. i'm one of those people because at 349.00 dollars, this is a pricey reel. the quality is worth it. i saltwater fish about 25 days a month catching jacks about 12 to 18 inches long and this reel performs great! another quality product from shimano. buy it you won't regret it!
Proslooks casting ease and distance reel stand drag system (rapid fire)
Conscrappy reel bag for pricey reel price
amazing crank power!!!
