Shakespeare Synergy Titanium Ti6 Underspin Reel
Shakespeare® Synergy® Titanium Ti6 Underspin Reel
I'm very pleased with the two reels I bought. I use them for crappie fishing and I've haven't had any problems with them. They cast very well. Loaded them up with Mr. Crappie 4lb super vis yellow line and the reels have no problems reeling in 15" plus crappie. I highly recommend them. In fact, next time I order I'm replacing my ultralight spinning reels with more of these. Great reel for the money.

The beauty of this reel, once you have placed the correct line on it, is the dual pick-up pins which guarentee instant line grab, unlike most the the higher priced competition which have only 1 pick-up pin and miss the line A LOT because the line has slack and is over the pin. Well recommended.

2 strikes, it's out
I had the same exact issue that another reviewer had, with two of these Shakespeare Synergy reels. I know you get what you pay for - got this brand new on sale for $7, but still, very disappointing. After a few uses, the reel would fail to retrieve lighter lures such as plastic lizards. Unless there was a decent amount of tension on the line, the reel would fail to retrieve. Two reels, exact same results. If you are looking for a reel you can use more than 2 or 3 times without experiencing problems, look elsewhere.

I love to use under spin reels and i thout i would try this one, it looked good, and had a realy good price. But after the first fishing trip i had problems getting the reel to retrieve line. Found as long as i was using a heavy lure the reel was fine. But i trout fish and rarley use heavy lures. Maybe i got a lemon. I wouldnt recommend this to anyone who trout fishes or uses light lures. I trashed this reel and bout a pfluger441 it seems to be doing fine but only fished about 3 trips .
