Shimano Sedona Reel

An excellent match for a Shimano Sojourn spinning rod, the Sedona 1000FD provides top-of-the-line features in a smooth, effortless reel perfectly suited for trout and panfish, while the 2500FD is ideal for bass, pike, and walleye. These lightweight spinning reels are constructed with four shielded stainless steel ball bearings, a precision-cut gear system, and a cold-forged aluminum spool for lightweight durability. The Propulsion line management system reduces line twist and allows the line to flow consistently and evenly off the spool. Imported.

Excellent Shimano Sedona Reel,
August 27, 2013
By: FarandFine
from Alexandria, VA
"This is an excellent ultra light spin fishing reel that incorporates many of Shimano’s top-of-the-line features at an affordable price. I purchased this reel as part of the outfit paired with the great Shimano Sojourn 5’6” UL spin rod. I have been away from spin fishing for 15 years and find the quality and casting performance of this reel simply amazing when compared to older gear of my youth. Through a summer of hard use, I have not experienced any “bird nests” or line twists common to lesser quality reels. For the outfit, Orvis spools the reel with 4lb test mono; I recommend not spooling the reel below 2lb because of the reel’s two-piece bail and bail head design. Kudos Orvis for offering these reels."

Best spin reel,
January 28, 2013
By: TNBud
from Smoky Mountains, TN
"This is the best spin reel I've seen for a reasonable price. I own both the 1000FD and 2500FD and wouldn't give them up for any other spin reel. These are great for chasing smallmouth and browns on my local rivers. After 2 years of heavy use I've yet to have a problem. Glad you picked up this excellent product Orvis."
