Shimano SIENNA 4000 Spinning Reel
Sienna spin reels have been part and parcel of the Shimano lineup for well over a dozen years now, and the latest incarnation certainly raises the standard when it comes to entry-level performance. The compact XGT-7 body has a changed center of gravity, which makes them comfortable for newcomers to fishing to use, while three ball bearing and one roller bearing combine with Dyna-Balance to make winding delightfully smooth. There are three general purpose sizes: 1000, 2500 and 4000, which cover all manner of light line situations, from bait fishing to Squidgy soft plastic and hardbody lure casting. They punch out 8.5kg drag and the AR-C die-cast aluminum spools hold a generous amount of monofilament and a lot more of a braid. So if you’re just starting out in fishing or the kids are showing some interest that requires something more sophisticated than just a basic handline, check out the new Sienna reel.
