Shimano Spirex 1000 Spinning Reel Review:
This is one of my favorite reels. I love the quick fire component. With 1 hand -- actually 1 finger -- you can pull your bail over to cast. Instead of needing both hands, you can do it faster and smoother with just one hand. I have had this reel for years with no issues. I have caught everything from bass, to walleyes to northerns to crappies to sunnies on this reel. I have it paired with the Shimano STS66M2 rod and that works just fine. The drag works perfect -- never an issue plus the bearings still are as smooth as when I bought them. An excellent choice!
