Enjoy a smooth, strong and reliable Shimano Sedona FD Spinning Reel for an affordable price! Shimano redesigned their Sedona FD Spinning Reels to incorporate top-of-the-line, performance-enhancing features such as their Propulsion Line Management System and the Power Roller III to give anglers the reel confidence required to meet any challenge. The Sedona FD Spinning Reel's lightweight graphite frame, sideplate and rotor provide tremendous strength and durability, with the Sedona FD's cold forged aluminum spool works in tandem with the Propulsion Line Management System's new spool lip design to deliver increased casting distance by minimizing friction and preventing backlashes. Although Shimano engineered the Sedona FD with improved features, the revamped Sedona FD still offers many of the same premium features found on Shimano’s original Sedona Spinning Reel including: exclusive S Concept technology, Dyna-Balance® system, Super Stopper® II, Fluidrive®, 4 shielded stainless steel ball bearings plus one roller bearing and cold forged aluminum spool.

Propulsion™ Line Management System: Five key components (spool lip, bail wire, roller, bail trip and cam) have been completely redesigned to reduce friction and promote uniformity of line movement. The result: more distance, less friction, fewer backlashes and wind knots, and greatly reduced line twist.

Super Stopper II is Shimano's exclusive instant anti-reverse system. Built with a one-way roller bearing that eliminates all back-play in the handle—for instant hooksetting power.

Power Roller III Part of the Propulsion Line Management System, Power Roller III reduces line twist by as much as 50%. Special grooved design assures that the line will wrap evenly on the spool.

Dyna-Balance® eliminates wobble on the retrieve by counter-balancing the rotor to enhance sensitivity and smoothness. 100% computer balanced!

Fluidrive® gearing means that your reel was manufactured with the highest tolerances and utmost control in the gear-cutting process, to ensure a smooth, powerful retrieve every time.

Shimano S-Concept features ensure that your spinning reel will perform beyond expectations. Features vary by reel model, but may include a specially designed rotor, guard, roller clutch, and/or arm cam.

Line recovery in inches per handle turn.

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 121 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Shimano Sedano I must learn to check to read the product manual,I thought this reel was a little bigger,frankly I was shocked to see how small this reel was August 5, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Smooth Reel I like this reel. It's extremely smooth, throws nicely, and fits my rod perfectly. I paired it up with some P-Line C21 line and it's a great combo. Line is super strong and the reel is very versatile. I can pitch it, toss it, throw it and it's got a good enough feel to do so accurately. In no way is it awkward to use. The only thing i don't like about the reel is the fast retrieve. You have to slow it down a little bit to make a realistic presentation on some baits and lures. Other than that it's great. July 9, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Smooth and Solid Are there better spinning reels than the Sedona? of course but not at this price. you get way more than what you pay for with these. I stack them up against the highesr priced ones on the market. i mostly flyfish streams for smallies and trout when i can. but when not i use mainly baitcasters, for largemouth. but when i need to sling a "very light" stickbait or smaller jigs the 2500 is a great choice. And for Crappie and smallmouth i love my 1500's i have 2 of those which either are no longer carried at Bass Pro or discontinued but they are little work horses for 60 bucks. still smooth still strong 1500's are on 5'6" light action Bionic blades with 6lb. flourocarbon... i love these little combos with the Sedona June 27, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great price, great performance! Purchased a 4000 about a year ago as my first reel. At first, I was a little skeptical cause of the low price, however it has never failed on me. Really smooth! Since then I got another one for my floater rod. May 21, 2014

I am looking at using the Sedona 1000 with a 6.5 Berkley trout dough rod, 4# fluorocarbon line. I am a newbie fishing lakes in CA for trout and occasional small mouth bass. Am I on the right track with this set up as far as the trout are concerned? Any suggestions?

A: 
skip the fluorocarbon and go with a good mono...I've used Stren Magnathin 4# for over a decade and usually outfish many others...the 6.5 may be a bit long to balance with the little 1000 size reel...look at a slightly shorter rod unless you really need to cast very long distances...that little reel only holds so much line and will not cast a really long ways

A: 
This reel is not much different from any other fresh water reel. Over time if you dont keep it rinsed and well maintained if will show some pitting in the reel. If you only want a salt water reel I would look for a saltwater series. Otherwise just keep it well rinsed after every saltwater use as well as oiled and greased and you should be fine.

Yes and yes. We have ours lined with 20-pound braid. We use them for speckled trout with just a hook and a live shrimp...same for reds. Also use them offshore for sight casting to chicken dolphin to medium sized mahi again with just a single hook and bait.

A: 
Like everything else in sports "it depends"! Line weight, line material, hook size, worm/egg, etc. size and weight, and importantly, the rod length and weight. A long, soft rod will let you lob light bait a good distance if you have a light, limp line....as to the size of the fish, I have used a 1000 for reds up to 12 pounds and speckeled trout and flounder with no problem. I regularly use a 1000, a 1500, and a 2500 on freshwater and inshore saltwater almost interchangeably without concern. The reel doesn't lose fish, the fisherman loses fish. The 1000 is a great reel for whatever you are after; if the fish whips you with a small reel, strong line, and an appropriate rod, at least you have had a great time fighting him....
