Solid Performance - Very Reliable I own both this reel (Stradic FJ) and the lighterweight C14. This reel has a much more "solid" feel to it than the C14. Its quite a bit heavier, so it balances with more of my outfits than the C14 does. I use the C14 on my medium to light setups. If I had to make the choice between the FJ and the C14 I would personally go with the FJ based on personal preference. I just like the way it balances some of my med-heavy to heavy setups. Have had absolutely no problem with the reel. It is dependable, and the 3000 size reel combined with a medium-heavy rod allows you to get some big fish through thick cover. Handles 5 to 8 lb bass with ease... Great drag system... Works well with power pro and flurocarbon leader. It is my favorite reel; Hasn't let me down, and don't expect it to anytime soon.

GREAT REEL A SUPERIOR REEL. THE FAVORITE OF ALL I OWN. EASY TO USE. July 5, 2012
Saltwater - No Problem!!! Recently bought the 8000 FJ to use offshore. It handles fish up 25-30 lbs without a problem. I had it spooled with 50 lb Powerpro Slick it is wicked! We've yanked snappers off of wrecks, live baited for Kings, and caught tons of bull reds with this thing. It delivers with power and smoothness of some of the more expensive reels. Throwing live bait or light plugs are no problem and it casts a mile. I'll definitely being adding another one of these to the boat soon. June 17, 2012
A bit over priced! I received the FJ 3000 as a replacement for the first FI I bought. The first FI I received was louder than a sewing machine! Must say that Shimano has a super customer service! My new FJ is a bit louder than I expected a $180 reel to be, but compaired to the first one it's very quiet! It also has a lot more plastic than expected, and also no spare spool! But the reel does perform very well! I haven't caught big fish with it yet, but the Brooke trout that I have caught, were of descent size! In the 12" to 18". The X-Ship works well, there was difference in the retrieve, it casts very well, haven't gotten any loops on the spool yet, which is a good thing! All in all the reel performs great, just a bit over priced. June 13, 2012

I would like to pair a Shimano Stradic FJ Spinning reel (ST1000FJ) with a Browning Fishing Hi Power Spinning Rod (HP60LS). Are the two compatible? ie. will the rod holder of this rod PHYSICALLY fit the attatchment part of the Shimano reel? (I ask this because I have noticed that some reels have a 7cm x 1.5cm rod attatchment piece where others are only 5cm x 1.5cm.

A: 
My suggestion is if you already own this rod bring it into any local tackle shop and ask if you can try it on.

Most places will allow you to borrow the display model for a moment if you appear willing to buy.

I hope this helps

A: 
No, sorry no extra spool. It is worth it to buy an extra spool if you fish with braided line. When my braid gets worn I pop off the spool put on an empty extra one and wind it one.

That way the old braid is at the bottom and the new stuff is the only stuff that typically touches the water.

I hope this helps

A: 
Do not put a $180 spinning reel on a $60 rod. Start with something comparable to a Shimano Compre or a Abu Garcia Vendetta. Extra dollars spent on the rod will enhance your fishing experience (and your success) more than spending dollars on a spinning reel.

A: 
I have mine on a 5'6" IM7 Berkley but the rod would really depend on your style of fishing. I would also pair this up with a bionic blade or the matching carbonlite. For something a bit less expensive perhaps a crappie maxx spinning rod on the IM6 blank. This is what I would purchase if I needed to replace the Berkley I currently have.

A: 
The difference between the two reels are the 3000 has 15 pounds of drag while the 4000 has 20 pounds of drag. The 4000 has more line capacity, and also it is a bit heavier than the 3000. Other than that they are pretty much the same!
