An interesting Shimano tidbit...

Recommended Posts

Look at the names of all of Shimano's reels and try to think of what they have in common.

It's something that didn't occur to me until yesterday.  Eating dinner at a chinese place, contemplating another reel purchase when it hit me.

Anyone care to venture a guess?

I put the names of many of the reels through a Japanese/translating dictionary/thersaursus and they all came out as another word for...

Overpriced. 1moon.gif

Wow I see now that the Shimano reel causes the same kinda of mind set as a sidelocked double. Those who had them knew how great they were, those who didn't were completely satisfied with the gun they owned.  It could cause problems in the field, I routinely ran into people that unless you owned a sidelock double, you weren't worthy of sharing the field with. Granted many of these guns easily exceeded 6 figures with a year wait to get it from the factory, oh and a trip overseas was a prerequisite to be measured. I have owned sidelocks, boxlocks, pumps, automatics, O/U's, Benellis, Remingtons, Brownings, and some you probably never heard of. But I never had that attitude, spending time in the field with good dogs, friends, and some good dog work was what it was all about for me. One thing I've learned is that at the end of the day it is the enjoyment you have on the water not the sticker on your real that matters.

There is a fun division of fans here

THE SHIMANO POSSE: whose sheriff is Road Warrior and their head buster is Burley

The FLOOGER MOOKS, no leadership and always in a state of complete anarchy and disarray.

Most of what is said is in gest, and for those not following the thread one said Burley has been on an everything but SHEMANO bashing march to the sea

Easy does it fellas this is all in jest and has been going on for a few weeks

Are you simply agreeing with Sam, and your question has not been answered, or are you saying that he answered your question?

Sam answered the question.

Other than a couple of older spinning and trolling reels, all of Shimano's casting reels feature names that start with C.  All of their spinning reels feature names that begin with S.

Burley Burley Burley.  Your 'discovery' isn't the type of thing you admit to others, much less on an open forum.  Where have you been?  That's day one stuff.  Even the slow kid next-door who was born with water on the brain knows about Shimano's system, and he doesn't even fish.  ;D

You really earned your graham cracker and milk tonight.

Not all Shimano casting reels started with a C. Back in the 70'  there casting reels were called Bantam's. I have 5 Shimano Bantam Magnumlite 2001 Plus. Their spinning started with a C CustomX2000GT  :(

Shimano makes spinning reels that don't start with the letter S.

Thunnus, Baitrunner Fx, Tx and Biomaster just to name a few.
