The Sedona series reels have been an important part of the Shimano entry level collection for many years now. The FE is the latest incarnation of this enduring model and hits the shelves having undergone a complete makeover and the results are spectacular. The Sedona FE looks fantastic. Aesthetics aside, the FE is also jammed pack with some of Shimano’s flagship technologies yet maintains the accessible price it has always had. Entry level pricing does not for a moment equate to entry level performance. The Sedona puts its contemporaries from other brands to shame, as its styling, sensitivity and overall performance resembles that of far more expensive spin reels.
The Shimano Sedona 4000 or 5000 models are big enough to hit the rocks and beaches for fishing light such as to target whiting or dart and are also fine to venture into the blue water without precluding the sensitivities required for the rivers, lakes and streams. Its all-rounder status does not for a moment suggest compromise but moreover, greater specialisation in a broader range of applications. The Sedona is a go-to work horse, well enough equipped to be employed for every fishing session. Reliability is assured, as is an awesome fight where you will maintain the upper hand.
