        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.
