Product Code: SH500FD

Like most of Shimano's spinning reel lines, the Sahara 500 FD differs from the other Saharas in terms of inches of line retrieve per crank, pounds of maximum drag, line capacity, gear ratio, and weight. Shimano's most popular 4 bearing spinning reel because it has lots of other Shimano goodies. See technical specifications for details. The Sahara FD has Super Stopper II - a one way roller bearing that eliminates back play for solid hooksets, yet can be turned on or off for back reeling. Shimano Reels and Outlet Bait and Tackle make a great combo for anyone looking for a great price on a great reel.
