SHIMANO Sedona Fl Freshwater Spinning Fishing Reel Product Review

Shimano combines their signature flagship Hagane gearing system with beautiful designs to offer phenomenal engineering and value for money.

The new Sedona FL is Shimano’s lowest price spinning real to include the upgraded Hangane cold-forged gears.

Cold-forged gears are designed to eliminate the cutting work that’s applied to the teeth of the drive gear.

Gear material and cut are vital mechanics that anglers can be quick to forget.

The circular, toothy units determine how strong and smoothly a reel turns, which is crucial in battles.

From experience, cheaper reels with lesser gears can feel like wind-up toys. If you’re an experienced angler seeking superior gearing, you should undoubtedly consider the Sedona FL.

This reel features double-anodized machine-cut spools for increased line capacity while the Propulsion Line Management System prevents wind knots and backlashes.

The new Sedona comes in sizes 1000 to 5000, and the G Free Body provides excellent comfort because the internal parts of the reel are closer to the rod.

Additionally, the weight has been reduced across all sizes to minimize jigging and fatigue during long days of casting.

Overall, the new Sedona Fl conforms to the core Shimano principles, it’s lightweight and built with quality materials at a competitive value.
