I don’t think there is another spin reel that could get a higher recommendation for the novice and intermediate angler than the Shimano Nasci. The Nasci packs some serious technology for this price bracket. In fact these sorts of inclusions are what you might expect at twice the price. Hagane gears, X-Ship, Coreprotect and an AR-C spool complete the balanced G-Free Body. That’s serious punch. Precision and durability.
The new Nasci reel is the best features of the Symetre, Aernos and Technium spin reels rolled into one with additional features rolled off from higher end models. What’s more, it is a very fine looking reel as well. The 3 sizes listed below allow anglers to fully equip for the inshore waters, both fresh and salt. The 1000 is a brilliant reel allowing anglers to get into finesse techniques with quality inclusions at a low price. Finesse kit is usually priced at a premium for the quality. In this case however, everybody can access quality. For those wanting to chase bigger fish, the 2500 and 3000 provide plenty of max drag power at 9kg respectively as well as very generous braid capacities.
It is this capacity, coupled with features such as X-Ship and Hagane that allows anglers to point these diminutive fishing reels at angry predators such as Barra, Mangrove Jack and Mulloway in say The 3000 size and it will provide awesome sport for Inshore Snapper. Look to the 2500 or 3000 for pegging hard bodies at the elusive but hard fighting big flathead or yellowbelly perch. The 1000 will cover all of your fresh applications like Bass and Trout but provide brilliant feel for casting light soft plastics at the racks for Bream or the weed beds for Flathead.
Here’s an idea. For a relatively small outlay, purchase all 3 if your wallet lets you and see all of your inshore applications covered. You’d get a great quality arsenal for the price of one mid-bracket spin reel. Definitely worth a thought. But if not and only one will do check out the features and specs below to assist you in buying your next new Shimano Nasci fishing reel

Fishing Applications and Fishing Rod Suggestion Guide
The Shimano Nasci 3000, 2500 or 1000 size reel are all designed primarily for light fishing styles so for those chasing bream around the racks, flathead on the flats, trout in the streams, bass in the creeks, (you get the picture) this is what the small size Nasci reels are good for.

Purchasing the 1000 2500 or 3000 is a fantastic way to get into the world of finesse and ultralight fishing with an excellent reel and a mere entry level price tag.
