5Shimano Saros 1000FB Front Drag Spinning Reel
By Charles Lagreca
I have a 3000 size Saros that is a great all-around reel. I wanted something lighter for trout so I bought a 1000 size. It has a much nicer feel for 3 or 4 lb fish. I use both reels at the same time but the 1000 is clearly the more enjoyable one. Of course the lighter rod I use with it has a lot to do with that.
I believe the Saros is the sweet spot between very expensive and lower quality models.
I'm now sold on Shimano because of a recent experience with one of their rods. I crushed it in a door jamb. That was a Monday. I sent it off to Shimano and the following Thursday there was a brand new, no charge rod on my door step.

5Wonderful reel
I purchased the Shimano Saros 3000 for trout and walleye. The reel is the nicest I've owned. The mechanisms are smooth and it handles large (20 inch) trout well. The reel is smooth and the drag is easy to release or tighten. I've had the reel for the summer and fish just about every weekend, so I've used it many times and it performs beautifully.I would receomend this reel for serious fishers. Its worth the price.

4Great reel for the $
By Joseph T. Sowder
This is a really good spinning reel, but not my favorite, which is the Shimano Spirex. This reel is well balanced, casts well, and is really smooth. It doesn't have the double handle like the Spirex, and it doesn't have the 'back-up' feature that puts the bail where you want it every time. It does have great ball-bearing action and is super smooth like all Shimano reels.
