Shimano Soare BB C2000SS PG
- Brand: Shimano
At last! Shimano have finally bought their C2000 sizes to the UK! Based around a similar body size to the dinky 1000 size reels, the C2000 has a larger diameter spool. Wider yet shallower. Perfect for ultralight braided lines that we use today! Given the choice of any LRF reel sizes, this would be my pick.
The Soare BB is part of the Japanese range of LRF reels that Shimano produce. Incredibly well priced, they massively simplify your buying choices when looking for an LRF or ultralight perch reel. In short, just buy one of these if this is roughly what you're looking to spend.
The Soare reels look absolutely lovely in the flesh! It's a classy looking colour scheme. The reels feel ultra, ultra smooth and the soft foam handle is the best I've seen really. just the right size and shape for me.
All in all, this is currently the best circa-£100 LRF reel going!
