The Shimano IX-2000 and IX-4000 are the best spinning reels I've ever owned. I bought one of each about 6-years ago, figured for the price, I couldn't go wrong...hey, Shimano makes bicycle gears, so they gotta know what they are doing, right?

Well, as an old Shakespeare and Zebco guy, I figured if they were half as good, I'd be fine with the product. Boy, was I surprised. The spinning action is super-smooth, like what you'd expect in a $100 reel. I've owned several Penn Senator spool reels, and the Shimano smoothness of action really does compare to the Penn Senator line. The drag is super smooth and adjusts infinitely, as well. The Shimano bearing and gearing can't be beat. I try to tell everyone I can, hey...if you want a lightweight reel that can handle 10-12 pound test, fight a 5-pounder easy, then go with the Shimano IX-2000RC. If you are more into lunker catfish and need to go up to the 16-20 pound test, then you want the IX-4000 reel...an almost exact copy of the 2000, but bigger and beefier. I've taken 25-pound rockfish with the IX-4000 easy...and the gearing in both are just right for their design, so you don't feel like you are cranking your guts out, or cranking forever to move it a foot, either.

These are better than good, they are great reels folks. I like them so much, I just bought another IX-2000RC for a new pole I got. The older ones work like new still, too...with thousands of casts on them now.

This is not the best reel on the market. It is far from it. But for the price, it simply can't be beat. It seems to be the standard Shimano reel design only made with cheaper parts. It is mostly graphite, which feels more like hard plastic. And to top it off, it is usable in saltwater, although I have not personally tested it those conditions.

If you have never fished before and aren't ready to make a large investment, this is the reel for you. If you are an experienced fisherman and need a lightweight or backup reel, you can't go wrong with this. It was less expensive than the Shimano FX which has an aluminum spool and a light counterweight, but this version has an interesting trigger for one handed casting that was pretty easy to figure out. I paid $11-$12 at the local Sport Chalet for the IX R1000 size and it has a nice fit and balance on my lightweight and med-light poles.

I balked at this reel at first because I thought it was too cheap to be any good, but it is the perfect reel for your secondary or backup reel, but also suitable as your everyday go-to reel for those looking for a bargain.

I bought a pair of these as economical spare reels for my fishing gear. I was pleased to find they were smooth geared work horses and well worth the scant 10 dollar price. This reel is $36.00 at other well known commercial outlets. After catching several large trout on my first outing with them and enjoying the easy casting, smooth drag feel, I would buy these again in a heartbeat!

I got it for my gf to use mainly. She likes it a lot. I got the 4000 model which is actually bigger than I expected and can even be used for bigger salt water game.

Size Name: IX-1000RC Verified Purchase
This is my first really good reel. Smooth action, easy to operate. Kicks fish butt. Love the action of the drag. The rod i bought for it makes for an awesome combination. Of course, i'm used to trying to cast crap so this thing sails through the air with the greatest of ease, ending up in bushes and tangling in trees, but when i do manage to hit the water it's a great, great experience. In any event, a bad day fishing is better than a good day at work. I'm happy.

I got this as a backup reel because my ancient Abu Garcia reel I have used forever is getting to be a little ragged. For $13 you cannot go wrong at all with this reel. The weight is perfect, the reel is SMOOTH as can be, and I was able to use it with ease as a left handed caster. I put Cajun line on it and had no problems whatsoever. I like this reel so much, I might buy another one! For such a low price, this is great quality!

Ok. I'm gonna be honest. this reel is awesome. ive everything from snagging kokanee salmon up to 6lbs on 15lb coploymer mono line to real light tackle: 2lb mono with trout magnets. the reel stands up to water, dirt, everything so far. if you are reading this review wondering if you should get the reel. GET IT! id buy 20 more if needed.
