Shimano Spirex FG Spinning Reels - $59.99

The Spirex FG is a great choice for someone who is used to fishing a baitcast reel and wants some of those familiar features transferred over to their spinning reel. A Double-Paddled Handle and a Quick Fire II trigger in perfect reach of your index finger, make one-handed casting a breeze.

A solid reel for light tackle techniques, the Spirex FG is also a beneficiary of much of Shimano's new technology designed to combat inherent issues with the genereal spinning reel design, such as line twist and line friction. The new Propulsion Line Management System and new Varispeed Oscillation ensure even line lay and that line twist and friction are no longer a problem. In addition to these features and many others, the Dyna-Balance system eliminates wobble during the retrieve by counterbalancing the rotor and the Aluminum Spool uses Shimano's new cold forging technology, maintaining the metal's original strength without sacrificing molecular density. The end result is a spinning reel with excellent castability and line manageability along with some familiar baitcast finishes.

 

The Spirex FG features Quick Fire II for easy, one-handed casts and A-RB bearings for smooth-as-silk retrieves.

Comments: I have owned spirex reels since the 90s and I have NEVER had a problem, I fish all the time. I have 4 spirex reels , the first one I bought in the 90s still works as good as the day I bought it. I have also used that same reel in saltwater. This is the only reel you will ever need, its durable and dead reliable.

Comments: I have owned 5 of these reels some are over 15 years old and used in saltwater...still working. I also own sedona's,spirexs, stradics etc.  Same results over the years.  Maintenance especially in the saltwater.  Great price and very dependable.

Comments: My Grandpa gave me his stella last year, and can honestly say i have been finding myself using this real much more than the stella. Love this real i have it in the 2500FG and have caught anything from 6lb bass to 15 pound channel cats.

Comments: Not sure if I am doing something wrong, but can't get any distance on a cast with this reel.

From: Bryan: Doylestown, PA

Comments: I have three of these reels, 2 rear drag / 1 front drag, and for the $$ they are great reels.  The drag on the front drag model is smoother, but the I've have no problems from the rear drag models.  My reels are ealier generation from 3-4 years ago, but if you keep the reels clean and oiled properly they will not fail you.

Comments: great entry level reel. got it when i was 12 and it has performed 4 years flawlessly. trigger is great and i love the price. only reason i have upgraded to stradic is i love the low weight. if u only have 60$ to spend on a reel id go with this. i have it paired with a shimano voltaeus rod tht i wish TWH carried and also cost only 50$ the combo mentioned is a great entry level set up for the angler on a budget

From: Zach: Downingtown, PA

Comments: This is a pretty nice spinning reel.  i am strictly a quantum baitcast user, but i love shimano spinning reels.  shimano always seems to get by with a few less bearings than most other reels, but they are still silky smooth.  these reels are reliable and tough.  i like how the spirex has the double paddle handle and quickfire trigger, but with the quickfire, you do lose the instant anti-reverse feature which can be a little aggravating at times.  all in all, these are quality reels at an affordable price.
