Comments: Ok here it is short and sweet, this is the lightest, strongest, most efficient reel I've ever owned. I fish here in SW FLA,Charlotte Harbor and all surrounding waters. I pared this reel on a 7'6" Falcon, and it preforms like no rod and reel I've ever owned, I have not always used Shimano equipment, but I have changed my tune, totally no problem handling Reds up to 30", and Trout fall victim to this set up. PS it's nice to go home after fishing without my arms aching.

Comments: Great reel if you want quality and reliability..Saw it dominate on #BeyondTheCast with #JPDerose and decided to give it a whirl..Virtually a #Stradic but made with #XGT7 Graphite (feels like a plastic) so its 30 bucks cheaper. Performs like champ with 20lb #PowerPro SuperSlick..Makes me laugh at people who use braided line and think their reel is broken because it's a noisy line

From: Corbin: Hamilton, Ontario, Canada

Comments: Reel makes an awful noise, Sent it into Shimano to get it fixed. When I got it back and took it out on the water it makes the same noise

From:  Oliver

Comments: Excellent  quality and incredible value. Used it for Pier fishing in Lake Ontario tributaries and landed numerous salmon including  a 37.5 Chinook on 15 lb braid(4 lb mono equiv.} Super smooth drag , great cranking power, and awesome casting distance with braided line. Highly recommended.

From: Roberto: Toronto, Ontario

Comments: The 1000FA is very nice for a light setup. Very smooth retrieve and solid feel and X-ship is a nice feature (yes it is a feature on this reel!).

From: Bob: Hayes, VA

Comments: uhh yes it does

Comments: The description states x-ship technology dishes out incredible cranking power, but this reel doesn't feature x-ship technology. hmmm..
