Shimano Miravel Reel Buying Guide
Built with the inshore angler in mind, the Miravel is an excellent choice for anglers looking for a lightweight and durable reel. Coming in size options 1000, 2500, 3000, 4000 and 5000, all you need to do is pair the Miravel with an appropriate sized and rated rod for your targeted fish species, and you've got the perfect set-up for some serious fun on the water. Let's dive in and take a closer look at all the models and what makes each sized reel shine.
Miravel 1000 - The lightest of the bunch, this reel is perfect for those targeting bream, sand whiting and trout with smaller lures or finesse techniques. The ideal rated rod for this reel would be in the 1-3kg class making for a great light set-up.
Miravel 2500 - A great all-rounder that will see you right whether you're targeting bass, flathead yellowbelly, redfin and just about anything in between. Paired with a rod in the 2-5kg range, you'll have the perfect set-up for most general inshore fishing applications from lake to river.
Miravel 3000 - sharing a similar physical size to 2500 but with increased line capacity, this reel is perfect for those targeting slightly bigger fish with lures or live bait. A 3-6kg rated rod will give you the perfect set-up for estuary fishing for species such as inshore snapper, big flathead, tailor and salmon.
Miravel 4000 - Built with enduring strength, the 4000 reel is perfect for those targeting Mulloway, barramundi, mangrove jack and mid-rate reef species found offshore on shallow reefs. If you're fishing bigger lures or baits in saltwater estuaries, lakes or rivers or fishing plastics offshore, this reel matched with a 4-8kg+ rod is the set-up you're after.
Miravel 5000 - The largest of the bunch, this reel is designed to handle bigger inshore species such as jewfish, barramundi and jack and can handle offshore reef fishing for small pelagic species or bottom-dwelling fish such as snapper. Murray cod and saratoga are well within the reels' target species range in the freshwater. Paired with a 5-10kg+ rated graphite rod, the 5000 reel will give you the perfect set-up for throwing bigger lures or baits in the hope of landing that trophy fish. The 5000 Miravel Reel also makes an excellent companion to any light graphite surf rod rated to around 5kg in the 8-11ft range allowing you to target a wide variety of saltwater species from the beach.
While many anglers in the know will have a pretty good idea of what they need before they start shopping around, for those just getting into fishing or looking to upgrade from an entry-level reel, the list above should give you a good starting point.
