The Shimano Exsence is perfect for light inshore fishing and bass anglers. It's lightweight, saltwater safe, and features a magnesium hagane body for that all day comfort. It's made with Shimano's water-repellent coating and specially designed, water channeling, labyrinth construction. The X-protect feature of this reel provides high-level water resistance without sacrificing light gear and rotor rotation.

Incredible spinning reel
I saw a few reviews on this reel and couldn't wait to get it. This reel is on par with any high end reel out there. Smooth as silk and it lays the braid on the spool so evenly it's incredible. This reel had now become my favorite fishing reel. Keep up the great work Shimano and thanks Tackledirect for having it in stock and getting in to me in a timely manner.

Great reel for Inshore shallow water
I bought the 4000 series and first impression was - what a great looking reel. Blacked-out look really is easy on the eyes. Second thought was - weight. This reel is light for a 4000 series. The lightest I have used in this size. It is only .3 Oz more than my Twin Power XD with 20% more drag. Bearing system seems smooth and the mag body is well balanced. It should work well for anything from smaller specks to medium/larger bull reds. Reel case is well made and seems durable.
ProsSmooth retrieve. Blacked out look is eye-catching. Reel bag/cover included.

1 Answers
The St. Croix VIS70MF Avid Inshore Spinning Rod - 7 ft. would be a great match pairing it with the Shimano EXS4000MXG Exsence Spinning Reel.
