 Leaning toward the Shamano Stradic C14 in the 3000 size.
Anyone using this reel? I would appreciate your comments.
Thanks

   I haven't used one, but from Funky  8/16/2012 9:08:28 PM
 hear very good things from a couple friends that have! I don't think you can go wrong with it or the FJ.


   I have two and love them from MikeF  8/17/2012 8:20:59 AM
 It's a very good freshwater spinning reel at a reasonable price.

 From the Revo Premiers. I have had ample time to study the design from the inside out. I had not worked on any and have two in the shop for mainenance. The most over engineerd reel I have ever seen. Way too complicated with some strengths but the Anti Reverse mechanism is weak. Very week. The whole reel has way to many and complicated parts that combined make a smooth reel but too many things to go wrong. The reel is way more complicated than say a Shimano Stradic but the Stradic is just as smooth if not much smoother, has a better and stronger Anti Reverse mechanism and is a much simpler and better designed reel.

 I have a CI4 2500 series and just bought another that hasn't made it here yet. The reel is very light compared to the other spinning reels I've used. I also have the other Stradic in a 2500 and the CI4 just makes the rod feel better because it is so light. I couldn't get used to using the C14 and then switching to the heavier model.

 After using the Revo Premier for 2 years, I'll recommend it. Yeah, it's a bit heavier than comparable reels but it's a tank. No drag issues whatsoever, actually has a bearing under the spool/on the shaft for silky smooth performance.
