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.

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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by joethefish its a shimano
just like any other shimano ive ever had this one also works great. light weight super smooth and i have no doubt that it will last many years. after using other reels such as penn, ive pretty much decided that if its not a shimano, im not buying it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SpinnerbaitCrankbait 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.

This reel is a dream when it comes to the gear ratio for retrieve and the drag smoothness is above the rest. The reel is durable and well built. Best value for quality and what you spend.
