Loaded with high-end features that the casual angler can afford. Shielded A-RB anti-rust bearings are at least ten times more corrosion-resistant than standard stainless steel ball bearings. The Sahara also brings you smooth control with its Propulsion Line Management System. Super Stopper II, Dyna-Balance, Floating Shaft, Fluidrive II, and Power Roller III.
First reel was faulty and returned. I own several Shimano reels so I knew that was an isolated issue. No problem with the replacement reel. I use this reel exclusively for trout fishing and it has perform very well as expected. There is now a newer model that is lighter but being so small that really isn't an issue. A quality product and purchased at a super price from GM.
