            Comments about Shimano Sonora FB Spinning Reels:

            I have used these Sonora reels for 5 years. I fish most every weekend and use artificial lures only. ( saltwater only ). I have caught 33" Redfish and Snook on these reels and I have never had 1 problem. I have never had to take these reels apart for cleaning. Just rinse with freshwater after a day on the water. Shimano got it RIGHT!Tin Can Man
