Rated 4 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Performing Reel I got the 8000 for Bull Reds here in Florida. I was out today 8 miles and caught 9 + 50lbs Reds and a 127lbs Reef shark. Its a smooth and great performing reel. It can do a lot of drag and get some big fish on the boat! Great buy money well spent! March 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Top shelf spinner Ferrari of spinning reels. I have 5k, 6k, 8k,10k, and 20k. I do a lot of vertical jigging and they hold up remarkably. As with all top of the line Shimano reels service is amazing. 30 bucks and they send it back to you brand new mechanically always. December 26, 2013
