Review 1 for Shimano Syncopate Front Drag Spinning Reel

Exceptional Value

This reel is the blister pack version, as shown, so the parts list and full instructions are not included; but you can download them if you need them (reels aren't rocket science). There is a boxed version available that does include instructions.
This is absolutely the best reel that I have ever owned, save for the 1000FG model, that is! I purchased this reel to replace an aging Shakespeare Cirrus reel that had the same QuickFire-like trigger system; however, this reel is superior in that the line does not wrap around the trigger as the Shakespeare model did. This reel is far more balanced and smooth when compared with the Shakespeare.
The best feature of this reel is definitely the Quickfire II; for a kayak angler, setting the bailer at the right position is one less thing to have to worry about!

There is no need to buy any other reel for spin casting. This reel is 99% perfect, my only minor gripe is that the bail will rotate a half turn before locking to set the hook, but you should have your hand on the handle anyway to prevent this. Reel casts smoothly. I'll never go back after using quick fire II, it is the fastest one-handed casting solution and works perfectly every time. Never a birds best with this reel and it is smooth as glass. Love it combined with my ugly stik.

Light. Smooth.

Inexpensive reel but feels very nice and smooth. I was surprised by how how much I liked it. Great for freshwater bass fishing. It probably won't last forever but it's a great value for a cheaper backup reel or for a person just wanting to have some fun without spending a ton.
