        Comments about Shimano Sahara 3000 FD Spinning Reel:

        Great little real for smallmouths all the way up to muskies & stripers. Smooth and powerful drag system. The only negative IMO is that the line capacities are only indicated in yds/lbs. Should also include capacities for line dia as well.

            This thing is a beast. I especially like the stop feature. It allows for zero handle movement and solid hook set.
