Great reel

I've had this reel for about 4 months now and haven't had a single problem. It has smooth retrieve and a smooth drag. Great for snook

Smooth, light weight reel
January 5, 2015
I paired this reel with a Shimano SE Teramar 7' rod for light surf fishing. The two are a match made in heaven. Although the rod is limited to the weight it can load adequately, the Symetre handled it all with ease. The largest fish I've landed so far was a 30" striper, but using the right drag setting, the reel had no problem keeping up with the fight. After a quick dunk in the ocean, I quickly found out how sensitive the gear are when just one grain of sand infiltrates the gear box. I had to take it apart, rinse with water, clean all the parts, and re-grease. Works as good as new now!
ProsVery smooth, easy to handle, absolutely no wind knots.
ConsDon't get it wet in salt water, as some parts are not completely compatible.

Can the symetre 4000FL hold enough 17lb berkley trilene .017 dia.
No, I would not recommend using this reel if you want to use that pound test.

I have a shimano symetre 4000 RH and am wanting extra line spools. What I need to know is if all the 4000 series FG, F1, FJ, RJ, FLC, etc.will have spools that would work in my reel. Does anyone know if the 4000 series has interchangeable spools ? The actual part number I am looking for is 6979, the aluminum spool or 6980, the graphite spool.
The best thing to do is contact Shimano directly at 877-577-0600. They will be able to talk to you about compatibility and availability of spare spools. We do not carry the spools.
