Shimano spinning reel sizing help!!


Recommended Posts

  • Super User

I prefer 2500 or 3000 size reels for bass fishing.

It's all about line capacity for me.

More is better.

The two reels on the right are 3000 Diawa Tatula SS.

Rest are 2500 (white) & 3000 size Shimano.

The only reason I can think of using a size 4000 spinning reel for bass fishing is Mono/copoly/FC line diameter over .010 diameter. Larger diameter spool accommodates larger diameter line. Keep in mind the IPT also increases with spool diameter.

Have a nasci 4000 on a tfo heavy spinning rod..but seems a Little big for a mh spinning rod ..are the 3000 same size body just bigger spools?

Sometimes 2500 / 3000 reels are the same size and weight, but the 3000 has a Deeper spool.

I when with a 4000 series Vanford on my victory 7.10 hair jig rod.  It was suggested to me the heavier 4000 reel would balance out the extra long rod.  It seems okay to me.  All my other spinning reels are 2500s
