      Comments about Shimano Sahara FD Spinning Reel, SH500FD:

      I use this real on my ultralight long crappie rods. This rod is very light and reduces the weight at the butt of my rods. With the light weight, I'm allowed to fish for crappies and bluegills for hours without becoming very fatigue. The reel casts really good and I haven't had any problems with its performance.
