I paired the 2500 series with a 6'8" Fenwick River Runner for trout fishing. Had a chance to use it several times during a recent camping trip.
I thought it performed very well. It was pretty quiet while reeling in the line and I found it to be on the smooth side.
I utilized the drag quite often on a few catches and that performed great as well.
At one point, my reel fell in some sandy type of dirt. Upon casting the line, I felt a bad grinding when I was reeling in the line in. After taking the handle and bail off, I submerged everything in the lake water to clear the obstruction out. Surprisingly, the reel was like new when I put it back together and did not have the grinding problem anymore.
Overall, I thought this was a great reel for the price with a brand name I have always trusted.

Not as smooth as the last gen. My Sahara FD is still much smoother.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chopper11 Great Reel
I have 3 shimano sahara reels, 2 2500fb that I have used for the last 5 years. Just purchased the 3000FE this year. Smooth as silk and a very solid reel. Have all of them set up on a medium heavy 2 piece Bass Pro Bionic Blade. I have caught a ton of bass and pike. The reels not only look great but I haven't found anything that comes close for the price. Great buy!
