Great "BUT"
I have been using these for years because of the "quick fire". I feel I get about 20% more cast in a day and that accounts for more fish. It is a good reel for the price. Now for the "BUT" part. The frames arm, from the reel to the rod seat, on the 1000 & 2500 class are weak and will twist back and forth on large fish. We have broken several of them on larger fish and they will twist and flex back and forth as you try and reel in a larger fish. Just caught 20# King Salmon on a 2500 and thought for sure the reel armature was going to snap off the way it was twisting back and forth. FYI, I was fishing for 5-9# Coho's at the time so I had the correct size reel. Still they need to beef up the arm between the reel ans rod seat.
ProsBest "Quick Fire" available 20% more cast
ConsWEAK, WEAK, WEAK frame.

Great Trout Reel
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.
ProsFighting drag is great. Bearings very smooth
ConsQuickfire 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

Great Pin Fish Reel
I needed a small light weight reel for bait fishing in the grass flats. This reel hits the mark. the single hand casting feature is great. I paired this reel with a shimano convergence rod. I really enjoy the light weight of the combination. i would recommend this bait fishing combo. Thanks Tackle Direct for the great pricing.
ProsLight Weight, Single Handed Operation, Very smooth reel.
ConsNone so far.

Shimano doesn't list that as accessory in their catalog so I am going to say that is not possible.
