Best bang for the buck
This inexpensive reel works very well. Its mostly plastic, but is well engineered to perform like a shimano should. I chose this product because of the name and price. I am not disappointed and would recommend this to any one looking to save a little money. Very happy with my purchase.
ProsLight weight yet solid. Inexpensive reel made by a quality manufacturer.
ConsMostly plastic not very attractive.

Classic Reel
This classic Shimano Reel is a durable die hard. I have used it for carp fishing and caught carp up to 15 pounds. The drag works great. The quick shoot trigger is a nice feature also. The line capacity is more than generous . I use mine on a European style 12 foot Avon float/match rod for my carp fishing and it balances out nicely. For the price this reel will last a long time.
ProsGreat drag and smooth operations with a classic old school look

Awesome reel
I have been fishing with a Shimano IX1000 for 15 years, and wanted a 2000 for bigger bass. Still a great reel for an insanely low price

Great reel for the very cheap price!
For the price of $9.99 Canadian for a brand new reel and it's actually pretty good for quality, who can beat that !!!
ProsI find it light to hold, like having the drag at the rear, reels very smooth, I use braided line and it works very well with that type of line, I would recommend it to anyone.
Consnone to comment on for this deal.

quiet and tough!
These are great if inexpensive reels. They handle harsh condition on sandy beaches very well. The spool design keeps crap out of the reel and the unique drag system works great when battling a good size fish. These reels are a steal!!

Great Reel
I just got to use this and it performed flawlessly. For 10 bucks you cant go wrong. Better than most 30-40 dollor reels. Use it with light 4-6 lb test and it will cast far.
ProsSmall light weight, casts far
Consonly problem i see is the auto abil hook, alittle flimsy, but a washer fixed that right up

Love these reels

Can I add 20lb braid on the ix4000r and does it does it do good with 25 inch redfish?
1 Answers
You should be able to get right around 300 yards of 20# braid on the reel. The 4000 size would be suitable for redfish of that size.

I'm new to spinning reels, how does the quick fire system work on the shimano reels?
1 Answers
Hello Murman. The quick fire system centers the line to be easily grasped by the users index finger to allow for faster one handed casting. Please feel free to contact us if you have any other questions!
