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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by joeinjarrettsville Not a good deal SY3000FL
The anti reversing switch is a bad size, too small. When the bail is opened the reel is hard to turn. I replaced the bail trip rod to see if this would help, but it didn't get any better.The line catches on the little plastic part near the line roller and braid cuts a groove in it , had to order and replace that part after 3 months of light use. I looked at a number of these reels in the store and they all seemed to have the same problems. I have a number of Shimano spinning reels and all of them work just fine. I wanted to like this pretty green reel, but every time I took it fishing it had the same problems.

Rated 1 out of 5 by delaware1 they just don't work
i bought one of these, the 3000, and really liked the feel, weight, and it was just right for my type of fishing. so i bought 2 more. one of which, was bad right out of the box. the other went bad after a dozen uses. the drag went bad. now all three have broke. bass pro is now sending me a replacement. we'll see how this one works. but i would not recommend this reel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Trubaseballer011 Great reel
For the $100 price point, there is no better reel. This is my first shimano reel and I can't believe I've waited this long. I could not believe how smooth this reel was when I used it. The drag was better than expected too, sooooo smooth. Been using it for about 3 months now and no problems. I will definitely be looking to buy shimano's higher price point reels in the future and I will be buying another one if these for my other rods. Great reel for 100 bucks!!!!!

I am a charter boat guide that fish for Red Fish and Speckle Trout. I have been using the Symetre Spinning reels for 7 years consistantly. They really work well for clients that are not use to reeling in lots of fish, I have tried other brands but keep coming back.
