The Shimano® Symetre® FL Spinning Reel features Shimano's ultra-thin M compact body design for a smaller profile, improved ergonomics, and reduced weight. There's also Shimano’s X-Ship technology for outstanding cranking power and smoothness. A favorite for all kinds of freshwater action—and even some inshore saltwater fun—anglers endorse the Symetre's Varispeed® II oscillation system that layers the line flatter onto the spool in two different speeds, improving its castability. Other features include an aluminum cold-forged spool, durable stamped bail, Dyna Balance®, and five-bearing system for smooth, consistent performance.

  • Four A-RB + one A-RB stainless steel bearings
  • X-Ship technology
  • XGT7 stronger and lighter frame technology
  • Aluminum cold forged spool
  • Super Stopper® II
  • Dyna Balance
  • Propulsion Line Management System
  • Varispeed II oscillation system

The Symetre Works I have 2 Symetre's (3000, 4000). I can count on the drag system each and every time. From pulling large Black Drum off the river bottom to working Red Fish and large Snook over oyster bars and mangrove lines. I paired them both with a 7' Shimano Clarus. I'll use the 3000 when wading and rig both when fishing from my boat. Free lined baits, swimbaits, jigs they all work. The 3000 has unbelieveable stopping power. Looking forward to purchasing another 4000 in the very near future. January 22, 2015
Best Value For Money When i first went shopping for a new inshore reel i was told that the Shimano Stradic was the only reel i should even think about. I wanted a reel that had Shimanos X-ship feature (which is really all its cracked up to be) so i went with the Symetre, Shimano's lowest priced reel with X-ship. I have fished a Stradic in 2500, 3000, and 5000 before. the difference between the Stradic and Symetre 3000 is not distinguishable. Great performace, smooth like all Shimanos, nicer color scheme and substantially less expensive. Blows away reels well above the $99 mark. Will definitely be buying more soon! March 30, 2014
Awesome reel. I bought this reel (500 series) for trout and this reel delivers. Casts awesome. Drag is awesome. Fought some good size 4lb trout and had no worries about the reel failing me like some others in the past. I paired this reel with the fenwick elite tech river runner rod. Its a $200.00 setup that is worth every penny. Looking to buy a couple more of these reels. Great job Shimano. November 30, 2013
good except for one flaw I used my 2500FL for the first time this past weekend and was impressed overall. My only complaint, and it is a pretty significant one, is that the lever for locking the anti-reverse setting for the spool is very small and hard to find in an emergency. When trolling of drifting and you get snagged, sometimes the only way to let out line is to flip the bail or let the drag work because you're not going to find the unlocking lever in time. Near impossible if you're fishing in cold weather with gloves. I wish I could order a longer lever that wouldn't hide so close to the reel body. Oh well, maybe I'll get used to it and it won't be a problem down the road. May 24, 2013

Hi, per the manufacturer web site, they do show this reel to be able to handle PowerPro Line as they give a Line Capacity online. Yes, you will want to added backing to braided line.

SY1000FL: 10/95,15/85,20/65
SY2500FL: 10/170,15/145,30/95

Picture it like this...
a 2015 Chevorlet Camaro with 400hp for 25k or a 2015 Cadillac Coupe with 300hp.

More bearings doesnt always mean a better reel, gives companies something to brag about thats for sure. In a shimano, youre paying for the pedigree. solid, reliable, and very well made reels. something pflueger cant beat by stuffing in extra bearings

tight line.

A: 
I don't know why the Shimano is so expensive, I just returned a Shimano® Symetre® FL 3000 for problems that the salesmen said many others are having with it. He showed me a Pflueger® President® and said they sell twice as many and have few returns. I now have 2 Pfluegers, and they are working just fine one is a Pflueger® Arbor and it is easy to cast long distance with a good rod. Stay away from the Symetre the reel is hard to turn when the bail is open and only gets harder after use. The line hangs up on the little plastic piece and cuts a groove in it. The Sedona is a better buy. without problems. The Pflueger® is the best bet.

A: 
Bearing count is a misleading number. Shimano is simply an engineering company that is the most innovative across the board. Shimano builds their reels from start to finish at their own facility and has a quality control department unlike any of the competition. Bearings can be put in many places that they are not needed to increase the count. The big thing to be concerned with is the quality of bearing and the because of the quality bearings that are used in Shimano's reels, they will be the same quality in 10 years as they are the day it is purchased, as long as reel is maintained and serviced correctly.

Absolutley. Just be sure to rinse it when you get back to the dock or at home. I rinse mine every trip then I turn them upside down in the garage so the water and diluted salts can run out onto the floor and not in the casing.

Shimano rates it for saltwater use. i use a $30 sienna and it works pretty good for inshore. DO NOT DUNK IN SALTWATER. I would never dunk any reel I wanted to use again in saltwater, except for a van staal
