Good reel for the money!
Good reel for the money. I put it on a 10.5 ' medium action rod for surf fishing in Monterey Bay , CA. and it casts a mile. The reel is very smooth. I would suggest using backing on both the spools as it holds an incredible amount of 30 lb. braid. The drag is very smooth and adjustable. A couple of things that is troublesome is the bail does not lock open sometimes making it necessary to rotate the spool for it to lock in a casting position . Also the bail is hard to close by cranking the handle making it easier to manually close the bail. Overall ,weighing the good points over the bad, for the money, it's a good reel. :)

Long casting system
This reel has completed my long casting system. My very first cast with a 4 oz lead get over 120 yard easy with very minimal effort. I pair this reel with 12 foot gloomis imx surf rod
ProsWell balance with rod , smooth feeling

Great casting
Used a friend of mine reel last fall and had to go buy one myself. Great casting plus plenty of drag pressure to slow down the big game fish.
ProsComes with line spool adapters so if you don't want to wind on a full 400+ yds. of line. Smooth reeling and love the manual bail flip, don't have to worry about line snapping on casts when you try to get that extra distance.

This is a great reel. The ULT5500XTD is very light. I paired it with my 9ā€™ TFO for plugging. This reel casts very far with 30lb. Power Pro Slick 8. Iā€™ve used it numerous times in the surf and the drag is amazing. With proper maintenance this reel should last a long time! I ordered this reel on Black Friday, (2017), with the Power Pro, they spooled it and it was delivered on Saturday! One day! Very pleased! Thank you Don at Tackle Direct!

Long distance
Iā€™ve only had the chance to throw this on grass so far but paired with the right rod this thing will bomb it out there. Like the spool spacers because if using light braid you donā€™t have to pack it with mono backing

Great casting
I researched all of the currently available surf reels and found this Shimano to be a terrific value. The reel has a long spool to facilitate casting distance. It comes with spool reducers to be able to spool less line. It is light and balances well on my rods. I have four of these to use in surf fishing tournaments. Drag is smooth and with routine maintenance these reels should last a long time.

Not what i expected
The reel is not very smooth the reel feels like it's grinding on retrieving.maybe just a bad reel?

Great surf reel.
I spooled the reel with ULT5500XTD Sufix 832 super braid and I'm very happy with it's performance. I have it paired with a Tsunami Airwave Elite 9'6" medium rod to use as a light weight plug rod. The drag is smooth, adjusts easily, and is very effective for landing fish in the surf. The slow oscillation spool movement and Aero Wrap retrieve with long spool shape really enables long effortless casts. Not a sealed reel but I've had no problems with it getting soaked when hit be waves.
ProsLight weight. Excellent drag. Casts very well.

Best Reel
Since I fish less than 20 times a year, I was always hesitant in purchasing an "expensive" reel: I'm glad the Ultegra XTD has changed my mind. You really do get what you pay for. Casts amazing-Shimano is the way to go.

good casting reel
I own the penn spinfisher 7500 long cast version and overall it's a great reel but a bit on the heavy side. I decided to give the xtd 5500 a try since it's about ~10oz lighter than the penn and paired it with Daiwa Coastal Salt Pro Surf 10.6 (got the rod on sale @tackledirect for $99). I took it out for a spin this past weekend and I got about 100-120 yards on the combo and im no expert at casting by all means....and should mention that im using the 30lbs power pro super slick (which i think gets more distance due to its slick coating). Overall im happy with the xtd 5500 only drawback is that it's not water proof.
