Great Trout Reel
October 26, 2015
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.
Pros:Fighting drag is great. Bearings very smooth
Cons:Quickfire 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
