Sienna spin reels have been part and parcel of the Shimano lineup for well over a dozen years now, and the latest incarnation certainly raises the standard when it comes to entry-level performance.
Gear ratios in the 1000 FE and the 2500 FE are 5:1, while the 4000 FE is slightly faster at 5.2:1. They punch out 4kg drag and the AR-C die-cast aluminium spools hold a generous amount of monofilament and a lot more of braid.
The compact XGT-7 body has a changed centre of gravity, which makes them comfortable for newcomers to fishing to use, while one ball bearing and one roller bearing combine with Dyna-Balance to makes winding delightfully smooth. So if you’re just starting out in fishing or the kids are showing some interest that requires something more sophisticated than just a basic handline, check out the new Sienna FE range.
