Shimano Catana 2500 FA

The Shimano brand is synonymous with the good biking and fishing gear. With a vast selection of fishing gear from the budget range to the downright lavish, the Shimano Catana FA is a reliable reel at a reasonable price ($80-$100 range). I was looking for a general purpose reel for light estuary fishing (bream, whiting etc) and something to use soft plastics and squid jigs with. I chose the 2500 of the Catana range, which is perfect due to its light weight and robustness.
