Rated 4 out of 5 by skiffman Good overall reel
I got this reel to go along with my 7' shimano teramar. This reel is very smooth and casts excellent. I have the 3000 model and it holds plenty of 20lb braid. the only complaint I have about this real is occasionally it gets glitchy and gets stuck when you first try and reel it after a pause. its not a huge issue but it is a bit of a bother... overall 4 stars

Rated 5 out of 5 by CWilson Great reel!
I have had this reel for about 3 years and have loved it ever since. I fish for bass in ponds and for fish of the ocean shore! Great purchase for beginners all the way to experts...

Rated 5 out of 5 by spinman solid reel, great value
This is my back up reel to a Stradic FJ, I have the 1000 paired with a shimano clarius ultra lite. I dont feel that I lose much quality at all when I go to this setup! Great reel, super smooth, very sturdy feel. This reel performs like a much more expensive reel! Buy one, you won't regret it. Casts well, nice drag system!

I bought this reel to replace my Abu Garcia Soran which is now on the bottom of Quabbin reservoir in Ma :( I would of bought another Soran but its not made anymore. I used to own an old model Shimano sahara and loved it. I figured the new model would be better. The first time I took it out fishing I knew I would be returning it! No matter what lure I had on it felt like I was reeling in a ton of bricks. It was obviously a defect in my reel, but instead of replacing it I returned it for the cheaper Shakespeare President. So far so good with the Shakespeare. Haven't used it enough yet to comment on it. I also have been using a BPS Johnny Morris reel for about 5 years now. Definitely consider this reel for 2 reason. 1 its strong and smooth. 2 if anything goes wrong with it BPS will most likely fix it for free. I had the bail repaired once. I'm sure if you get a new Sahara you wont have the same problem (That's why 3 stars instead of 1) but I thought people should know.
