Shimano "Sahara FE" Series Spinning Reels debut a distinctive look while delivering enhanced, top-drawer performance at a modest price point. Lightweight but impressively strong, Sahara FE Series Reels sport a graphite frame, rotor, and sideplate for a weight savings you'll feel in an instant. Sahara FE Series Spinning Reels feature a smooth, four-bearing system that's more than a match for that larger-than-life trophy you may encounter.

Great reel

I have never had an issue with Shimano reels. I own a Sahara 2500 and have been using it for probably 4 years now. The reel has nice features and is really smooth. Its a good quality reel for the price!

Smooth and light Reel

This reel is amazingly smooth and strong! It is light and perfect for going after the big bass, northern pike, and excellent for going after the saltwater fish! This is the perfect reel for doing both fresh and saltwater fishing. As silly as it may seem the handle part fits perfectly in my hand makes reeling in the line a breeze on my wrist! It makes fishing for hours on end no problem!

    • Replacing Foot Braces.....?
    • Not really...I would have thrown that kayak away out of frustration before the brace ever had a chance to break. I still say upgrade!
