Personally I think this is a great deal. I have a shimano sienna 500 - very smooth to use for crappie fishing. Going to get another one 4000 for bass fishing

Good reel. 19.99 + free shipping at Dicks for a while now. Got one at 17 during their last 10 hour sale.

Reel good find OP. Get it? Rep given. Well I don't want to be a "drag" (last one) but this reel is at an awkward product line entry point; by the by, I would think you'd want a bait caster for crappie?
I use a spinning reel on the lake (just crappie and blue gill) but that's just because trout is my my primary and it's easier to make due with a spinning reel occasionally on the lake then vice versa.
Anyway, don't get me wrong. The sale is right but Shimano has an entry/beginner/back up reel, IX2000RC that's ~$10 every day.

You would have more choice and variety in picking up a second hand reel at around $20 that would have nearly double the bearings this one has.
Fishing equipment is certainly one of the products you can pick up (especially since it's off season) on the second market with good piece of mind.

90% of fishing equipment is bought with good intentions before the season but they get their line wet maybe once before it sits in a closet the rest of the season.
Even if you get a reel that was
used to fill their tags more often then the weekend warriors, you can run an exhaustive multi point inspection in a matter of minutes... except for the the baitcasters from the 50s and 60s.
I inherited several middle grade rods and reels that I tried to do basic maintenance to but it never failed to come back together with extra parts; if you're lucky enough to get some user documentation on them before striping them down then it never failed that the manual left off steps or had an indecipherable diagram that looks like the artist drew it without being in the same room as the reel.

In the end, they were so sensitive and prone to bird's nests when were brand new that you reassemble one flawlessly and it's "normal" functioning was about as dependable as the ones that I had serviced with extra parts Smilie.

Sorry for the tangent there but it's because I so love vintage fishing equipment but I have to always caution myself of whether I want to spend half the time on the water troubleshooting with a "classic" or have my line in the water the entire time with a less exciting aluminum "lump".


It is really remarkable about how any reel we choose even in the bargain bin, they will be superior in function to any of the high end "heirloom" equipment of our father's generation.

Now that graphite rods have plateaued and become the affordable norm, I can't tell much differences between my newer, lower end, vanilla "backup" rig and my "twice the price" setup I bought ten years ago.

The Ugly Stik GX2 is an astonishing value in a dozen varieties and specifications; if anyone is looking for an economic rod to partner with their new bargain Shimano reel, thanks to OP, I can't say enough good things about the Ugly Stik.

I was doubtful of it and was bitter about the Shakespeare brand growing up but they have made me a believer.

Great price. I've rarely seen these below about $25. Just note that all of them except the tiniest 500 size are "rear drag" models. Some people prefer them because it's easier to get your hand on it in a fight, but they are less smooth and less powerful.

If you're looking at the ball bearing count and you're disappointed, don't be. These reels are plenty smooth and better than anything else you're finding at $20. Shimano says they are approved for salt too.
