  • Walleye fishing

Comments about Shimano Symetre FL Spinning Reel, SY3000FL:

I used the reel on a recent fishing trip for walleye and white bass in the Maumee River. Performance was outstanding.

I appreciated the reels ability to release line and retrieve line evenly with the constant casting and reeling in line when you do this kind of fishing.

Not a single line mess-up. I was very impressed with the quality this reel exhibited.

No complaints at all.

Comments about Shimano Symetre FL Spinning Reel, SY3000FL:

Just an awesome reel. I was a bit skeptical at first because of the $100 price tag, but don't let that sway your decision making. I wanted an upgrade from my 2500 Sedona and so I got the 3000 Symetre for more line and I just wanted something a little nicer. I bought the reel 3/31 and went walleye fishing 4/3. I paired the reel with my 6'6 Med Fast rod. I fought some nice 3-5lb walleye and the reel did not disappoint. It was smooth casting accompanied by smooth reeling action as well. I got to test the drag and it worked great, I even dropped the reel in the water a few times by accident and it still worked to perfection. Bottom line is you get what you pay for, and I definitely got my money's worth.
