Haventbused the reel yet but i have an older generation version that i love and still use...shipping was quick now i just gotta find the time to fish
Solid reel, almost a Stradik fk minus couple bearings which I added from shimano site.
This is really my first 3000 series, and it holds up! Great for targeting inshore species like fluke, school sized stripped bass and the occasional blue fish. Love the fight this reel can put in
Picked up the Spheros Sw 3000 XG to pair with an earlier purchase of a Tsunami Carbon Shield II. Reel balances perfectly with Rod. With the rod @ 7.5 feet the combo comes in a 14oz. Unbelievably light and a pleasure to cast. As always Saltwater Edge delivered in less than 48hrs.
