By far the finest 3000 series reel Shmano has ever produced. Upgraded from Sustains. Drag rating and feel are "best in class" They have a winner on their hands with this reel.

Purchased (2) of the 4000 models six months ago. Always been a huge shimano fan and probably own over 40 different reels and models. This one is a real winner and the 4000 & 5000 are the best I have ever used. A little pricey but worth every dollar

I have several of these reels and ordered them before they were even out last year! Jury is back on the performance. Amazingly passed all the test with flying colors. Awesome reel, my reels were used to catch fish from 1lb to 60lb and did not miss a step the whole way. At the end of the season, had them cleaned and they are back in service again. Outstanding quality reel! I do recommend. Get the quality of a Stella at a much better price point. IMO
ProsJust feel the high quality while using! Durable, strong, and user friendly for all ages!
ConsHigher price point than most spinning reels, BUT you get what you pay for,, I'm a believer.

Very light and holds up to Saltwater

Typical Shimano smoothness.
Light - much ligher than the SW version and so far holds up fine using it in the surf.

Does not feel as sturdy or beefy as the SW version but does not seem to be an issue.

This is on my main boat rod Gloomis greenwater. The very smooth but yet powerful reel I have laid my hands out with my tight budget.
Proscircle knob is a plus. lightweight and carbon drag.
Conslittle pricy

Great reel
September 18, 2017
I am extremely happy with these reels. Long time user of upper line of 4000 and 5000 size Shimano reels, Stradics, Sustains, and various Stellas. I now have 3 of the new Twin Power XDC5000 reels, all purchased from Tackle Direct. Reels are used for surf fishing, repetitive casting and fast retrievial of predominantly 2 oz. lead lures. Casting distance, light weight, and fast retrieval speed are key. The TP's are near perfect in every way. Been doing this for nearly 20 years and have used a bunch of different reels of many brands in the never ending quest to improve. These by far are the best for my use to date.

As usual, great service from Tackle Direct. Courteous, fast, good inventory, and competitive pricing.

Smooth as glass
July 19, 2017
While I had intended on testing the Twin Power XD 3000XG and the 5000XG in Florida for a week of fishing inshore for Tarpon, Snook and Redfish and offshore for Permit and Cobia and Snapper on the wrecks in and around Naples the weather prevented me from getting out for four straight days. I was able to able to catch some Bluefish and Striper in NJ this Spring and early Summer. The reels are smooth as glass (both cranking and drag). While these reels are pricey, I do plan on using them for a very long time.
ProsSmoothness, Casting. Drag
ConsThe handle knob on the 3000 size TP XD is too small.

I bought this real to go with my 7' St Croix legend Trek and its a dream! I fish the surf for fluke and I feel with this setup I can handle much larger fish on very light tackle. The reel is shimano smooth and it fits 150 yards of 15lb super slick. Great looking reel and packed with all the features of Stella at half the price.
ProsSuper strong Feather light Looks great

I was debating between this reel and the Van Staal VR50. I'm looking for something light, strong, and durable. Any feedback or suggestions?
