        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.

        The 500 size is just right on a jig stick for my Winter fishing and will work well fishing ultralight in the open water.
