Reviews
Shimano IX Spinning Reel is rated 4.8235 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've been looking for this reel for a long time. It's one of my favorites. It was my first reel I started fishing with. Thank you. John VT

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value at This Price ! Haven't used it, but seems of fine quality. The jury is still out on the bail flipper, but quality seems good, however time will tell, as bail springs are usually an Achilles heel, for spinning reels. Short on line capacity & big for an UL, this will be a backpacker and 'planter' trout reel for me, where the fish don't grow too large. Overall seems of good value for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST starter reel. I was given this reel for my 10th birthday and 15 years later is still being used for my panfishing addiction. Little care and loads of use haven't stopped this reel. Just bought another one, and for the price you have to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought the same brand/product 20 yrs ago from a local store. It is a low priced reel for pan fish fishing. Excellent quality for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my two favorite budget reels. Lasts forever with great performance you would expect from Shimano. Why spend $50 or more when you don't have to?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent reels for the price. I put this reel on a 7 foot light action rod with 6 Lb. Silver Thread line. This setup works great for crappie.
