Re: My new shimano spinning reel

If your going to get a ci4 get the 3000 its 7.2 oz and the 2500 is 7 oz so the 3000 is better. The 3000 has good line capability so you can put 30 lb braid on it.

You get what you pay for. If anyone thinks that a pflueger stacks up to a high end daiwa or shimano they have not fished those reels.

It's nice to keep your set up as light as possible and not be fighting the reel as you move your lure along. I have one sustain, a ci4 a
couple of shimano ultegras, an Abu Garcia 801 & 802 and 6-7 daiwa fuegos. Not to mention a Quantum te pti10 and a Okuma vs30 and vs40.

The heavy stuff gets little use because it is not that fun or enjoyable to fish with. The only pflueger I would be interested in checking out would be the new Patriarch. The rest of their crap is dead to me.

Tight lines to all and if you have the means, I highly recommend that you kick up your fishing game.

Re: My new shimano spinning reel

but $500 is worth it for a stella. Its so smooth and smoother then any other spinning reel. You don't have to try as much to reel a fish in the gears will do it for you. Yeah theres the shimano sustain and a stradic thats way cheaper and will last a lifetime, but those reels are no stella. You have to hold one yourself in bass pro to find out. Pflueger reels don't even come close to shimano and daiwa reels. A daiwa cetate will outpower any spinning reel even a shimano stella. Its just less smooth. Watch this shimano sustain 3000 in action most reels wont hold up to this

I myself have several stradics from the 10000 to the 40000 and several Calcuttas from the 200 to the 400 series and they don't even come close to the Pfleugers reels and less expensive. Just bought another Pflueger President for $59 and with 9 bearings it will last a lifetime. Buy what you like and buy what you can afford. Most of all you have to use the gear to get your monies worth instead of letting them sit in a corner collecting dust and taking pictures then saying, these reels lasted me 10 yrs...

Missed you F&F! You got rid of all of those viruses in computer? Bet your going blind... .

If you are beating the heck out of them to only make them last a year, it has nothing to do with the quality of the reel, it is user malfunction. There are also a whole lot of 100 dollar range rods that will do the same. I am not saying it is bad to buy some real high quality gear, but where do you draw the line? For 500 bucks, i could buy a new trolling motor, or pay for a long weekend fishing anywhere around here. Just my 2 cents. I will say, it is a very nice reel, enjoy!
For $500 you can buy 10 UglyStick combos and still have money for pizza beer and a couple lap dances.

Re: My new shimano spinning reel

Nice gear! I also picked up a stradic ci4 for this season and already own a Core 100Mg. I love these reels! Gonna pick up some rods and another baitcaster for throwing crankbaits. Shimano reels are awesome! Enjoy, and hope the fish put some good wear on those reels for you!
