Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 38 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by What a Reel! I'm extremely glad I decided to spend a little more and get the Core, it was worth it. It's unbelievably light weight, and it's smooth as glass. It casts long and easy, and the light weight makes it an absolute pleasure to fish with. Can't say enough good things about it. Get one in your hand and see for yourself. July 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Reel Ever I rarely write reviews but after everyone else wrote one I thought I had to chime in. This reel is absolutely the best reel I've ever used and I have used several such as the Chronarch, Curado, and high end Revo's. It's extremely light and casts excellently with braid line. Even if I mess up, it rarely backlashes and is easy to get free. Paired on my 6'8'' worming GLX it's an awesome combination. June 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Casts a country mile! Solid construction, sleek low profile and easy to use. You'll be happy you spent the extra money on a proven winner. November 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Feels Effortless, No Backlashes Even when I mess up and expect a backlash it's not there. Throws light, weightless baits a good distance with no effort. I own many $100-$200 baitcasters and thought maybe there wouldn't be a big difference. Totally wrong, huge difference, well worth it. I spend a lot less time messing with equipment and a lot more time fishing. November 4, 2013

I certainly wouldn't use the Core in Salt Water... it's a brilliant reel for fresh water and I wouldn't take it near salt water.

I paired mine with a 6' BPS Extreme, IM9, medium action with a fast tip, it made an excellent lightweight combination, but a 6'6" would work just as well if you want a longer rod.

A: 
You dont pick the action of your rod by what reel you have. It totally depends on what you intend on doing with the rod. Jigging, moving baits, sizes and weights. There is a ton of variables that come into play when your trying to pick the perfect action rod. What do you intend you using the rig for?

I ask this because every other Shimano reel I have ever bought had an insert in the box that the reel sat securely in. Mine was just loose in the Shimano box in the small bubble wrap bag. Input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

A: 
There isn't a knob that clicks. The Core has a Variable Brake System that uses centrifugal force. You adjust the brake by turning on or off six internal brake weights (click out for on and in for off). The system works well and is very intuitive.
