    Comments about Shimano Sahara FD Spinning Reels:

    I use this real on my ultralight long crappie rods. This rod is very light and reduces the weight at the butt of my rods. With the light weight, I'm allowed to fish for crappies and bluegills for hours without becoming very fatigue. The reel casts really good and I haven't had any problems with its performance.

      Comments about Shimano Sahara FD Spinning Reels:

      First reel was faulty and returned. I own several Shimano reels so I knew that was an isolated issue. No problem with the replacement reel. I use this reel exclusively for trout fishing and it has perform very well as expected. There is now a newer model that is lighter but being so small that really isn't an issue. A quality product and purchased at a super price from GM.
