great reel for the $$
I needed a new reel for light tackle striped bass I got a 4000 which I loaded with 30lb braid...caught some nice 20lb plus bass during the fall run which this reel handled with no problem...very smooth drag and great performance..used with soft plastics-bucktails and jigs-casts a mile !!

9-yr old son wants to start fishing....
A Shimano Sedona is a fantastic entry level spinning reel, made in Malaysia, by a Japanese company. That means great quality control and overall quality. The Japanese brands are famous for being the best in the buisness. Personally, I’d go to a local tackle shop and get help from them.

Disappointing Reel
I recently purchased the Sedona reel for my son-in-law. Such a disappointment. Tried different fishing line in hopes the reel would be smoother. No such luck.!

Almost good...
It seemed to work great the first few times I used it, but I put it through its first full day of fishing today. It got wet a couple of times, which is to be expected when you're wading a stream, and each time it would become very difficult to reel in line. Like something inside the reel was jamming...
