      Comments about Shimano Symetre RJ Spinning Reel, SY2500RJ:

      I own one of these reels myself and purchased the rear drag reel for a long-time baitcast fisherman to transition to spinning reels for jigging for Walleye. Not the cheapest reel out there, but it is worth it. This will be the reel that I look at for my next purchase when I need to replace one of my current reels. Front drag and rear drag are both smooth and solidly built.

        symetre 2500 reel with ''REAR DRAG'' is the lightest, smoothest, and most durable reel. The REAR DRAG is the BEST for fighting and landing a fish.

          MN Walleye Fisherman review

                Comments about Shimano Symetre RJ Spinning Reel, SY2500RJ:

                I use this 1500 reel on a St. Croix Avid. I fish walleyes with a jig or lindy and am usually fishing structure.

                My budget at the high end is $150-$200 for a rod and under $100 for a reel. I have 5 different rigs for walleye fishing and this one is the most expensive I own. [got three kids that get my minnow money these days]

                This reel is great. I could really tell the difference in how smooth and tight the action was. My other reels are $50-$60, and this reel was a step up.

                Would like to own another but when budget is tight, I spend the extra dough on the fishing pole.

                If you're in a higher tax bracket and money is no problem, then why are you even reading this. Go out and buy 2 and send me one. :-)
