silky smooth
very impressed with the construction and smoothness of this reel, particularly for the price! I also love the 1 handed casting feature.
I can't speak to the durability of it- but I have only had good experiences with Shimano in the past...

Can't go wrong with this reel
Botught reel for my wife b/c of trigger and self-centering, but I like it too. Withstood a week of surf fishig and great for freshwater bass, small to mid-size stripers, and redfish. Shimano's are smooth. All I buy now. Tackle Direct is great to work with. Great web site and fast delivery.

Stunning Shimano
What an amazing little reel. Heavy engineering so you know its sound, solid mechanism. Silent as a whisper.
ProsYou can feel the amazing quality from Shimano
ConsI wish I had a BIG one of these... twice as big.

2500 series
This is one of the few reels on the market that does not have infinite anti reverse. I like the feature that enables the handle to return to the same location before the next cast. There is a more expensive model with this feature but it has a goofy double handle sorta like a casting reel that is not comfortable to me
