by Hernann8 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.

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!
