      Comments about Shimano® Symetre® FJ Spinning Reel, 12/160:

      Fish from the shore in salt and fresh waters, this reel casts a mile with ease. Line leaves the reel smoothly and reels back even smoother. Paired it up with a Gundog med-fast rod making it fun to catch any size fish. Good ratio bring the line back quickly. Definitely a great reel for one so light weight

        I have used the Shimano Symetre reels for years and fish almost every weekend. I have never had a problem with these reels, they always cast great and have a smooth retrieves. I bought these two for a trip I am taking to Canada next month.

          I have always been a fan of Shimano's upper end of their spinning line. This reel does not diappoint. I purchased the 4000 for the heavy walleyes, pike and deep lakers in the Quetico of Canada. The drag worked great.

            I have owed this reel for 6 years and fish with it 50+ times a year. I am a lure guy and cast continuosly. If I were to guess the amount of casts made it would be over 250,000. Reel has never failed me. I've caught everthing from blugill to musky on it. I have tried them all and will now only buy Shimano.

              Bought it for my steelhead rod. I have had a 2500 series I use for walleye/pike/smallmouth for several years now that has been a workhorse. It's one of those products you don't need to think about; it just works.
