What Do You Think Of The Shimano Spirex?

Recommended Posts

Do any of you like this reel or dislike it?

I have two that have seen hard use over the last four years.  One of them in saltwater.  They take a licking and keep on ticking.

If the lack of IAR doesn't bother you, they're a good reel.

I started out using them but if I were going to spend 60.00 on a reel now , it would be the flooger president.

Have 2 and love them both.

I will be very disappointed if they ever do away with the autocast trigger.

X2, they are good reels, but remember to keep you hand on the handle when are setting the hook, I have lost several fish due to this, I have no switched to the Sahara.

I go along with Burley here.  I have one that is retired, still useable but a tad rough.  It served me well for 5-6 years and my oldest son used it another 5-6 yrs.  I tore it down last year, cleaned it up and relubed it and put in the box with the other functional retirees.  Great real in regards to how tough it is.  Kinda heavy like Micro said too.
