Details & Specs

Shimano® IX Reels with QuickFire®II bail levers are so easy to cast, you'll never go back to your closed-face reel again!

Thinking about making the move to an open-faced Spinning Reel? For my money, your best choice is Shimano! This new IX Series of Reels is perfect for beginners and budget-conscious anglers.

It sports Shimano's exclusive QuickFireII bail lever that makes one-handed casting just as easy as with your old push-button closed-face reel. And look at the price... affordable for anyone! Check out the chart below for specs.

Reviews
Shimano IX Spinning Reel is rated 4.7826 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Reel for the Money! I'm an advisor to a college fishing club. In the past I've often found myself looking for "loaner" equipment for new club members, many of whom have never been fishing.I was reluctant to buy "cheap" fishing tackle to fill this void as one often "gets what you pay for", but these Shimano reels helped me get good quality equipment into the hands of those students that need it, at a very low cost.I mate these reels with Shimano Stimula rods, also available from SG. I typically assemble two different set-ups, a medium-light action for smallmouth bass and a light action for trout, based upon availability of components at SG.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Reels for the Money Bought two of these for my son (2000, 4000) for panfishing and bass/pike fishing respectively. He dropped the 2000 in the drink this spring while crappie fishing and I haven't bothered to take it apart to lubricate it and it is still working fine. On the 4000 he just bagged a 25lb musky on a jig while we were bass fishing. It handled the monster just fine. So I highly recommend these reels!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shimano open face reel Excellent reel for the money. Nice to night fish with as bail centers and you lift line and bail with trigger.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ecellent reel for the price Bought for surf fishing, thought it would be bigger; but it operates perfectly and holds 200 yards of 12 pound line so can't complain for the price. Will be great for catfishing.

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.
