1000 or 2500 size spinning reel?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for either a 1000 or 2500 size Symetre or Sahara. It will be going on a 6'6" med. ex. fast Compre and will be used mostly for shakey heads and wacky rigs. I will be spooling it with 8lb test. I haven't had a chance to check out either in the store yet but was hoping to get some input here first. Thanks.

The first two points that jump out at me:

- 1000 size will be lighter

- 2500 size will have wider spool that should help with line management (i.e. less tangles & better casting)

2500 IMHO is the perfect size for bass fishing

Wouldn't buy either one.

I'm using  supremes 8725 & 8730, both hold more than enough line for bass, plenty of horsepower and what I like the best is not a dinky handle, but a larger more comfortable one, plenty smooth and very light.

Although I generally agree...the 1000 series seems

to be a better fit for shorter rods. I only have one

(Stella 1000FA) and it's matched up with an Avid

AVS66MLF. This rig is sweet!

I have a 2500 Shimano and a 103 Cardinal.

For bass I use the 2500, panfish the 103..

I think the 2500 would be a better fit for the rod you are going to put it on. If you were going to go with a ML rod or smaller I would go with the 100

I use a 1000 on an 5' UL st croix.

I use a 1000 on a 6' L.

Looking at a 3000 for a 7' Med.

I use a 4000 on a 7' Med Hvy.

I am thining on selling a 2000 and a 750 symetre as I like the above better.

The 2500 and 3000 are same size but the 3000 has a bit more Line capacity (deeper spool) and better handle.

The 1000 FJ and 750FI are about the same size.  I have put a 750 FI spool on a 1000FJ.  1000 FJ has faster gearing.  I use it for small stream smallmouth or trout. 

2000 is a great reel but heavier than the 1000FJ.

I have the 2500 Sharha on a 6'6" MF..6 lb yoZuri ultrasoft. I use it for most plastic's i.e. DS, T ridg, C rig ect...I think the 2500 is the way to go.

I have that same rod, with a Symetre 2500FJ on it, and it is a great combo. I spooled 6lb. PLine CX on it. It balances great, and doubles as a Walleye rod too.

I do have a 1000 size reel that I use for Steelhead/Panfish with 4lb. PLine on it, and it works for 25 in. Steelhead, and 2lb. Crappie.

I have three Symetre reels: a 1000 on a 5 1/2' ultra light; a 2500 on a 6 1/2' medium; and a 4000 on a 6 1/2' medium heavy rod (but I should have bought a 7'er).

I would suggest you go with the 2500 for that rod.

Thanks for all the input so far. I had kind of guessed the 2500 size would be best but I wanted to get a little head start before I actually went to a tackle shop and checked them out.
