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...

Hey Matt, I know this is a little of topic, but does Thorne Brothers have the new Curado or Citica? And do you have any of the new bait casters just released from Pflueger, Quantum, Abu? Lots of great upgrades for 2009, but can't find them anywehere yet.

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...

      leech, it does sound like an odd concocktion.  but you gotta try it.  225 for 2 hrs, helps if u use thin bacon.

      Man, I can see cream cheese but peanut butter? I may have to give it a go sometime, maybe the bacon will off set the oddness? :eek:  :)

    • Sorry I missed that. The brown and blue wires are the Transmit TX and Receive Rx wires for connection via single cable to NMEA 0183 compatible devices. nmea 0183 is the protocol for compatible devices, computer, plotters, auto piolet, Radar, radio, etc. All of these devices including your GPS can be connected to a single cable. The brown and blue wires allows the sonar to communicate to other devices. Google nmea 0183 compatible devices for a raft of information on what this is.

      My brother, a charter Capitan out of Cortez FL. uses these devices on his boat for off shore fishing up to 100 miles off shore. Nice to have to talk to other Capitan's ship to shore, radar, GPS and  to get back home without running into sunken islands.

       

    • Trump stumped on terrorist quiz as he can't identify the leaders of ISIS and al-Qaeda – but Carly Fiorina shows she knows her Nasrallah from her al-Julani

      • Radio host Hugh Hewitt asked Trump and Fiorina the same questions about terrorist leaders in separate taped interviews on Thursday
      • FIorina answered confidently and Trump seemed flummoxed, confusing 'Quds Forces' with 'Kurds forces'

      I ask the same thing about the other 2 candidates, especially the one that is your favorite.

      That would have been a fine answer.   Unfortunately instead he sat there with his mouth hanging open (figuratively) and looked like a total dolt.   This is the second time he has handled something in an interview poorly.  I guess he feels he needs the exposure but unfortunately he is not especially good at the interview thing.   At the very least he needs to practice deflecting the question.  Perhaps the "nobody especially" but "I prefer to look to American leaders of the past like (Calvin Coolidge, Teddy Roosevelt, Thomas Jefferson, William Calhoun, whoever he wants)" 

      He can't just sit there and and look stupid, which is what he did.    Maybe some role playing in preparation would have helped.   He can't be as ignorant and inept as he has come across in TV interviews.  

      What do you care? I thought he was irrelevant anyway?

       

    • Oh yeah.  I keep forgetting about all that modern computer stuff in cars.   So the computer would notice the tranny didn't shift all the way down as the car stopped?     There goes that theory.   

      And why only after a couple hours of driving?   Some sort of overheating of the transmission fluid?  cooler plugged in the flush process?   

      Here is a question for Carpmaster..... Is it different in the summer vrs winter?   Like you only have to drive 50 miles in summer and 200 in winter?  

      You guys that actually know can feel free to ignore my suggestions if you don't want to waste time answering.
