The seller I purchased it from did have quite a delay in the turn around from once I ordered it to actually shipping it to me. I contacted them and my question as to why were not answered by the representative. The reel deserves 5 stars but the shipper that I bought it from on Amazon does not.
I live in Corpus Chrisi, Texas and this specific reel (Shimano IX4000R) was purchased to replace the same exact model that failed after 7 years of salt water inshore fishing.
The outfit: Shimano IX 4000R on a 7' Ugly Stick GX2, with 20lb Spider Wire braid as my main line. I use this rig to try and target Specal Trout and Mangrove Snapper along the jetty rocks in the bay.
As an "entry level" reel this is a fantastic purchase. When I am fortunate enough to introduce someone to fishing, this is the reel I recommend they start with.
Rinsing with freshwater after salt water fishing, kept my last one going for YEARS.
Now if you get a big fish on and it is screaming line out and you need to adjust your drag. You have to get your fingers very very close to that line to adjust it. With a good sized fish on the far end that light is tight, and moving fast. Brush up against it and it is almost like feeding a finger into a saw. It can burn, cut, slice your skin quickly.
So I like rear drag reels, but rear drag spinning reels seem to be going out of style.
So when I noticed these I thought this is a good chance to get 2 more solid rear drag reels in my box of gear.
I was not expecting a lot from a 15$ reel, even one with Shimano's name on it. Boy was I surprised.
This reel is solidly built, silky smooth from drag, to reeling, to tripping the bail after casting. Smooth is the word that describes it top to bottom. No vibration, no wobble, no hickups, no problems. Just quiet smooth performance. Which is what you want.
Now I don't know how long this reel will last. It is winter up here in the Dakota's, it will be May before I start fishing.
If this reel fails before September you can bet you'll hear about it from me. But I don't think it will.
