Comments: Nice reel and good quality. Just stay away if you have Real Man hands like me, It'l buise your knuckles. Great for you lady fingered men.Clearance is not great. I bought mine to go on my Loomis Bronzeback and the bail is just to close to the rod.

Comments: After reading the reviews here, I decided to check these out. I liked my sahara, but thought it was time to move up a step or two. So I go to my local tackle shop and try these on some different rods. Now I have big sausage fingers, and it is true, I even showed the salesman- It Does Bang My Knuckles!!! It was a bummer, because these are light weight, smooth ,and comfortable. In short it reminds me of when I was a kid and went clothes shopping- I had to get the Huskey sized pants. So, I think you need to try these on a rod before you buy them. They would be awesome, but for that. So I have to move up to the Saros if I want one to fit my fingers! LOL!

Comments: THIS REEL IS AMAZING. For the price its a very amazing reel. It is very smooth and I have the 3000 size which is small and dose me perfect for bass up to pike! I use this reel for everything. Paired up with 20lb Braid it is the best I have seen. Give it a try! Shimano NEVER fails!

Comments: I don't know why anyone would have any issues with holding this reel properly.  I have two now and it has worked just as well as my Stradics.  Best 100 dollar spinning reel on the market in my opinion!

From: Alan: IL

Comments: I have the same negative issue with the new compact design. I used the 2500 religiously and it was time to replace one of them. These are tiny the look like a 1500 or 1000 size and there isn't enough clearance to keep the bail from banging on my fingers and knuckles while reeling. What a shame. Time to try a daiwa or Abu Garcia.

Comments: been using this reel for a long time.. great reel is all I have to say..for $100 its well worth it.

From: Clor: MI

Comments: I have always used the Sahara models and decided to upgrade last year to one of the Symetre 1000FJ models to see how they performed. It is one of the best spinning reels I have ever used. This year I ordered 2 of the Symetre 1000FL (this years new and improved model). They came in just in time to spool them up to use in 2 day bass tournament. I found out on the water on the first day that Shimano has downsized the Symetre to the point that there is not enough room between the reel seat and the first bend in the reel leg for fingers. I tried fishing with them but after half a day and a bleeding knuckle I decided that enough was enough. These reels are useless to me and anyone else who was there at the tournament that I had try to hold them normally. I assume that this is the new Shimano M Compact Body Design; and I see that they now use the same design on the Sahara series. It is too bad that changes are made without thought to the end user's needs. They take an awesome reel and cheapen it to where it is not useable. I will be calling Tackle Warehouse about these although they did not change the reel design; Shimano did.

Comments: I have the Symetre 3000 and already plan to get at least 1 more, maybe 2 (I generally just fish 2 spinning combos, and about 8-10 casting but I may go 3 spinning this season). The Symetre is one to buy with confidence...and IMO spending 250-350 on baitcast reels is reasonable if you have hte money. The technology is there and effects the cast; i.e. spool weight, cast control system, bearings, line guide, etc. SPINNING reels on the other hand, I just don't believe the 250$ and up reels have the technology to make them worth spending it on them. I do not think a 250$ reel will outperform the Symetre by 150$ AT ALL. The Symetre is a workhorse...smooth, great looking, tons of Shimano's top features...good light weight...just a great reel. I will stay in the 99-150 range in spinning rods for sure.

Comments: The Symetre has taken care of my spinning reel needs for the past 4 seasons.  No complaints.

From: Jonesy: UP North

Comments: This real is awesome.. Got the 3000 with a TW gift card I received for Christmas and took it out for the first time this past weekend. Paired up with Sunline Sniper 8lb this thing is unbelievably smooth! I was shocked.. Shimano done this one right, and for $99 it is a steal. Don't hesitate to buy this one.
