Shimano Sedona FD Spinning Reels
I fish hard and often during the season. The Sedona reel performs well, however they only last one season for me. They start to grind and freeze up by the end of the season. For the price they are excellent reel.

I own about 6 fishing rods and 3 of them run Shimano Sedona Reels. I have the 500FD on two Ultra Lites and i have the bigger version on my Medium action. for the price ur getting a great reel with smooth drag, great retrieve... the bail on my one 500FD is starting to stick but thats just a maintenance thing on my end. Take care of these reels and they wont let you down!

Good reel for the price
On first day out with this reel, caught a 3 lb large mouth bass. Reel held up well under pressure of bass pulling on drag. The following day caught an 18" wide body saugeye, again the drag held as this fish was pulling out line from this light reel on a 5 ft St Croix ultra light rod. The last time I used the reel on the third outing, I noticed the spool was somewhat loose and I needed to tighten the nut holding the spool. Other than this adjustment, I am please with the reel

As the headline says this is a great reel. I gave it 4 out of 5 for 2 reasons. 1 being that the handle has a wide grip and not the thumb grip like the picture. (easy to get over that.) 2. I'd like to see some replacement/backup spools for sale. I'd like to be able to change from heavier to lighter line and not have to fork out the money for another reel. Other then me being cheap this reel is a great buy for the money. Its very smooth, compact enough to pack in the trunk an carry around, feels solid like it can handle the wear and tear, and has very nice casting distance. I'd buy it again and may still go and get another for a back up/different line test.

Nice reel, lady!
We've used this reel on two other rods and have been very pleased with it's performace. The action is smooth and for the price, you can't beat the value.
