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 116 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for the money I bought the 2500 about 3 years ago and it finally needed to be replaced but then again I threw it pretty hard into the back of my truck after my brother broke the tip of my pole which is why i think it starts to get a little sticky. Up until then this reel is the only thing I have ever bought. I currently own the 1000 and the 4000 as well. I use the 1000 soley on rivers for trout. Then i use the 4000 for striped bass and cats. Just because the line capacity is limited with 12 lb on the 2500. I target fish in the 20-24in range and the 4000 works wonders for that. I fish anywhere from 7-8 times a month. Then during summer even more. All my reels are on Ugly sticks. The 1000 is ony a 6'6 ultra light and my 4000 is on a 9' medium and my 2500 is on a 7' medium. However I am replacing that for a bait runner because like i said it has gotten its use. Reason for giving it 4 stars is because after a long period of use, the line guide started to get a notch in it where the line dug into the little plastic piece so i would sometimes have to move the line back into the line guide. I noticed it after about a year or so. Other than that if you take care of it and not throw it around like I did, it is a great buy for the money. April 14, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by 2500 is JUNK! Never buy Shimano reels again After just 2 years of normal use for bass, the handle SNAPPED CLEAN IN HALF. The reel was never abused, always hung up or placed gently in my garage or boat. Tried to set the hook on a 1lb bass and BAM, it just broke. Checkout the picture for proof! No more plastic/graphite reels for me. PENN full metal from now on! Spinfisher V is THE BEST reel "normal" money can buy. Who cares if they weigh a bit more. They will last a lifetime! Shimano is only quality if you spend hundreds of dollars. $729 for a Stella 2500?!!! April 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fish catcher The best reel ever used. I fish two or more times a week with a minimum of 360 casts a day. I have now used this reel 5 days. Still as smooth as the day I took it out of the box. October 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by SEDONA Smooth as silk. High quality and alot of reel for the money October 8, 2013

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....

well it can and it cant. what you would need is a 6 lb line and a very light rod. also the longer the farther. like a 7 ft ul or light yould cast what your trying to do. it sounds like your trout fishing i yould try the st croix triumph 6'6" ultra light with 6 lb flurocarbon

I have used a similiar BPS PQ Reel for years, and it is a good reel, however, I like my Shimano better for drag smoothness, and all around smoothness (reeling etc). PQ's do tend to corode a bit on the chrome parts.
