Last night I think I had just hooked into a personal best for Chain pickerel. I got so excited I woke up. Will have to make that dream a reality in 2012.
I like Shimano reels and have put in a lot of hours watching Bob Izumi fishing. So I'm not sure what possessed me to buy a cheap rod and reel combo that wasn't from Shimano.
Let me tell you briefly what happened with that combo. First, like I said, it wasn't a Shimano system.
It's so easy to get overwhelmed when you walk into a fishing supply shop. I guess I should have put on my Shimano blinders so I could ignore the other reels and combos.
I am not gentle with my fishing gear. Actually I can be quite tough on my fishing rods and reels. I throw them down to grab another, sometimes step on them and seldom clean them. Am I bad or what but I buy good equipment that lasts for years, even with the treatment I give them.
Shimano fishing reels are designed to last and handle most fishing situations. So let's take a few minutes and look at three sturdy Shimano fishing reels I am sure you'll like.
Shimano Stella SW
The Shimano Stella SW, a saltwater fishing reel that will give you that long distance cast you need, every time. These Stella SW reels are designed to handle the big fish like Tuna and even Marlin without any difficulty.
Shimano has designed the sturdy drag system that can quickly tire out even the biggest fish.
This reel also has an Anti-Corrosive coating that of course resists damage brought on by saltwater corrosion. This will keep your Shimano Stella SW catching fishing for years to come.
Shimano Stella 2500 Fe
The Shimano Stella 2500 Fe is a fishing reel for about any situation and has a number of unique features to help get the job done.
Shimano has models for both freshwater and saltwater. The Stella 2500 Fe also includes a protected corrosion resistant ball bearing compartment. And to make your reel last even longer the drag system has been waterproofed.
The size of the gears has been increased by the new X-Ship which keeps everything in exact alignment.
Shimano Sustain 8000 Fe
Fishers all around the globe put the Shimano Sustain 8000 Fe reel at the top of their list. The reason is the Sustain Fe is both durable and will last. It makes for a great fishing experience.
The Sustain FE features the new Paladin Gear Durability Enhancement, Propulsion line Management System and Aero Wrap II Oscillation. That doesn't mean a lot to me other than it can cast a country mile, year after year.
These are just some of the features of three top class Shimano reels and they are worth every dollar spent on them, reliable and durable they are reels that will give many years of great service.
