picked up a sahara 500fd spinning reel for trout fishing last year a i love it. it's light, well balanced on my 8' ultralite, and has a smooth drag.

So this year i was gonna pick up another one. was just about to buy one when someone gave me the inside scoop that shimano was discontinuing this model and releasing a new model soon. did a search on the web and found one. check it out.

Shimano have always made quality gear IMO. Recently purchased a baitrunner reel and was amazed it carried a 10 year warranty.

been using the old sahara 500fd for trout fishing with no complaints. has a smooth drag and is lite weight. use it on a 8' spinmatic and it balances out the rod nicely.
