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
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.

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!).

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..
