Shimano value at its best
February 13, 2015
What can I say, it's a Shimano spinning reel. Quality and function are great. This is probably the best spinning reel for money in my opinion. Works flawlessly. If you're looking for a spinning reel and are in this price range, buy it! Granted it doesn't have 15 ball bearings; it doesn't need it. Shimano spinning reels are quality and last forever if taken care of.

Solid Spinning Reel
November 9, 2013
I just purchased a Symetre 2500 about 4 months ago and it has been a great reel so far. I have fished Shimano reels exclusively for 25 years, from $25 models up to $300 models. Taking that into consideration a Symetre is not as light as feather or have the beefy drag of a Sustain, but for the price I don't know what can beat it. I use my 2500 for fishing smallmouths in the rivers and dropshot fishing largemouths. So far the reel has been smooth, has a great drag, and can make long casts. Since buying the reel I have had it spooled with P Line Floroclear, 8lb. test, and apply line conditioner after every other fishing trip. With this set up I have had very few loops from line twist which has lead to more fishing and far less time untangling line. If $100 is the price point, I don't think you can go wrong with a Symetre.
Great drag Smooth operating Long casting Very little line twist

Dollar for dollar, best spinning reel out there
August 18, 2013
I find it hard to shell out 8 hundred dollars for a good spinning reel when these out there for a hundred. Anal retentive fishers may go on and on about it, but , I'll spend my money on bait, beer, and these Shimano Symerte reels. The drag is near bait caster quality, the smoothness and function is very close to the best out there; and all for a "C" note. Come on now, spend your money on a quality rod instead.

under priced
