3000 Series Shimanos

12 posts in this topic

All the new Shimano spinning reel series are now coming out with a 3000 model. A great fit for a lot of bass situations in my opinion. A great dock reel as well as jigging. They have the larger handle too. The new Symetre and Sahara are very nice and for the price they are excellent reels. Once you jump up to the Stradic you get the HEG gearing, some cool stuff.

I've been very pleased with the new addition of the 3000 series of the line-up of Shimano spinning reels. Looks like they're thinking about us bass guys smile

I went with the Saros 3000 instaead of my usual 2500 just to get the larger handle. Love the new handle design over what is on the 2500.

I agree! I got 2 of the Saros 3000's. One for docks and one for jig worms. Good product!

All the new Shimanos will have a 3000 series, at least everything from Sahara on up so far...

We have the new Sahara, Symetre, Saros, Stradic, Stradic MG, Sustain and Stella at Thorne Bros...

I think you will be very impressed even with the new Sahara, a big step up in my opinion...

The new Shimano Curado and Citica have not been released to the stores yet. We were told sometime in September or October...

We have a lot of the new Abu's in-stock. All the Revo's and soon we'll have the new Toro...

The only Quantum we carry are the Energy and PT Tourny Burners...

No Pfluegers...

What ever happened to the "quick fire" feature on spinning reels? I see Shimano doesn't offer it on most models any more.

I know there are issues with hook sets if you are careful since the reel will rotate backwards until it reaches the top position, but they are great for casting.

WIWF- They still offer that option on quite a few models. The Spirex is the top of the line with that feature. While Shimano sells quite a few with the quickfire, more people prefer the instant anti reverse.. and unfortunatly you cant have both...

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
