Shimano 2500fb Reels


Recommended Posts

You are referring to the 2500 Stella FB.

The FB is the old model. I had an SR1000 which is the same except it is the local Japanese model and it was a great little reel but, it had a tangling issue.

The new 2007 models don't have this problem. I have both the 1000 and the 2500 and they are fantastic for soft plastics and squid jigging or any fishing style where your reel is constantly picking up slack line. :biggrin2:

Beware the FB series IMO :thumbdown:

Mate that reel is pretty much the beginners reel....great little reel that will take a beating.....but you will upgrade in the end so i suggest you got the beter reel first and save you the trouble and money
