I own a few different Shimano reels but this one is by far the best one yet. I have had this reel for about a month and a half and have had not one issue. I always have line twist with my other two and am constantly having to untangle them. I haven't had a tangle at all with this reel. It is so smooth and casts very well-I am gonna order a second one because I love this reel so much. Another feature that I love about this specific reel, which might sound dumb, is that is orange. I am tired of the gray and silver combinations. When I grab for a rod I will go for the brightest and I know it is the best of em all.

    Comments about Shimano Sonora FB Spinning Reels:

    I own many spin cast and bait casters but this is the reel I grab first every time. In a few months and caught many bass, pike, and trout with this reel. The retrieve is smooth and it casts far. I have 10lb fluorocarbon line and not once has my line twisted or become tangled. I love this reel whether it's twitching jigs, worms, casting cranks, or just live bait this reel holds up great!

        Comments about Shimano Sonora FB Spinning Reels:

        The only bad thing I can say about this reel, after you cast and you start to reel it can be a little difficult setting the loop back but other then that I love it, casts great never tangles the line over all awesome and my issue might just need to be used more to break it in.

            The reel is absolutely great for the price. If you want a better reel for the price you won't find it. Very smooth for a reel of its caliber.
