Great Trout Reel
This is the best trout reel I've ever used. It's smooth, reliable, and built like more expensive reels. I use mine mostly for trout in rivers. The biggest I've caught so far was a 5 1/2 pound brown. This reel is bigger than most people use for trout, but I like that. The fighting drag is great. It lets me keep the drag a little on the loose side so teh fish doesn't jerk my rod around a lot, but I can quickly and dependably tighten the drag if I need to stop a run before the fish wraps around something. I like the rear drag a lot better than front drag. I can adjust it in mid-fight if needed without risking touching the line. I use 8 pound Magnathin line on mine. I like it so much I bought an extra so I won't have to cry too much when I wear this one out, which looks like it won't be any time soon.
ProsFighting drag is great. Bearings very smooth
ConsQuickfire lever and bail arm wore to the point of occasional malfunction after 4 years of heavy use, but those parts are about $4 total here: http://www.ereplacementparts.com/shimano-sr4000rg-spirex-spinning-reel-parts-c-200301_200302_200422.html

Great Pin Fish Reel
I needed a small light weight reel for bait fishing in the grass flats. This reel hits the mark. the single hand casting feature is great. I paired this reel with a shimano convergence rod. I really enjoy the light weight of the combination. i would recommend this bait fishing combo. Thanks Tackle Direct for the great pricing.
ProsLight Weight, Single Handed Operation, Very smooth reel.
ConsNone so far.

It works perfectly and I would say that it covers the written specifications. This is a reel I would not hesitate to recommend to a friend!

I have a Shimano Spirex 1000RG and want to purchase another like it. All the new ones I can find have a prefix lettering of "SR" while mine has no such lettering. Can someone please tell me what the letters "SR" or "FR" mean? Thanks.
SR is just short for Spirex. That has been current for 3-4 years now.

That is just the model number that Shimano assigned to this reel. On the reel, it does not look like it says the SR on the spool. Is that where is says it on the reel?
