  • Top-drawer performance at a modest price
  • Lightweight but strong construction
  • Graphite frame/rotor/sideplate
  • Four-bearing system
Shimano Sahara FE Series Spinning Reels debut a distinctive look while delivering enhanced, top-drawer performance at a modest price point. Lightweight but impressively strong, Sahara FE Series Reels sport a graphite frame, rotor, and sideplate for a weight savings you'll feel in an instant. Sahara FE Series Spinning Reels feature a smooth, four-bearing system that's more than a match for that larger-than-life trophy you may encounter.
Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Good except in Moist environments Love this reel when it stays dry but any sort of high humidity or spray causes it to operate like there is sand in the gears. It's very frustrating and i've never seen anything like it. I'll grease it up in the garage and it's super smooth and fishes great most of the time but tried fishing in saltwater last week in a kayak and it would almost get stuck sometimes and after a while will operate fine and then it's grinding again. Works well in freshwater. A bit of internet research revealed that Shimanos have a reputation for performing this way (something about a poor bushing design). Most are probably fine but no more Shimanos for me. June 3, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Shimano Rules Been working for a Japanese Robotics manufacturer for 25 years. For reliability, durability, and repeatability they are the Kings with miniature mechanics. This applies to the Shimano's. I purchased the 2500 and 4000 on sale for Kayak bass fishing and I could not be happier. It's the quality of the bearings not the qty that matters. My Shimano baitcasters are 15 yrs old and they are still my "go to" for power fishing. Get yourself some. June 2, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Shimano Starting to Disappoint I got back in to fishing about a year ago. Over the year I have purchased 5 different models of Shimano reels and 3 have already failed me. The Sahara has been the biggest disappointment. Its was the most expensive of them and yet the lowest quality. Yeah, I don't know how that works. Its has less bearings than the others and for some reason doesn't utilize Shimanos 1 piece bail system. Therefore, its no where near as smooth as the Sedona or the Sienna, which are both much cheaper in price. And you guys can probably guess the next issue... THE BAIL. It didn't take much for it to separate from the roller. Shimano does sell the replacement parts for these but I'm going to be putting my money in to another manufacture. May 6, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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 April 22, 2014
