Buyers Guide – Fishing Applications and Fishing Rod Suggestions
To assist you making the best decision on what size reel to purchase and what rods generally match we have crafted this handy little buying guide…
Small Size Models (1000 – 2000 – 2500 or 3000)
Shimano Sedona 1000 FI Reels are great little reels for freshwater and light saltwater fishing, ideal for targeting anything from bream, to whiting, trout and bass. We suggest matching with a graphite fishing rod with a line rating around the 1-4kg mark.
Shimano Sedona 2000 or 2500 size reels are that next step up for those that wish to fish with either slightly heavier fishing lines or for those that desire more line capacity in fact out of all sizes we sell the Sedona 2500 FI Fishing reel is our biggest seller by far. Such a great little versatile reel. We suggest pairing with a graphite spin type fishing rod with a rating of around 2-5kg.
Shimano Sedona 3000 FI Reel is that reel which suits the angler that desires a reel a little bit bigger for heaver inshore fishing targeting big flathead, or mulloway in lakes and rivers etc. A suitable rod for this reel would be ideally a graphite fishing rod that has a line rating of around 3-6kg.
Medium Size Models (4000 or 5000 size)
Shimano Sedona 4000 FI Reels are suited to heavier inshore fishing such as fishing for murray cod, barramundi, jewfish and can even be used as a heavier reel for bait fishing for bream, flathead and other estuary and lake fish species. The reel also makes a great light beach or rock fishing reel to chase bream, whiting dart and more. But it doesn’t stop there, the Shimano Sedona 4000 FI Reel makes a great light offshore reel as well for reef fishing and light sport fishing.
Shimano Sedona 5000 FI Reels are suited to the exact same specs as above the only difference is the line capacity, The Shimano Sedona 5000 Reel holds more line and weighs a few grams extra, that’s it! So, if you want a reel with a little more line capacity go a 5000.
When it comes to matching a rod with a Sedona 4000 or 5000 we suggest that it is matched up on a rod around 6-8ft for heavier inshore. Match it to a bait rod rated anywhere around 3-6kg mark or on a graphite lure rod rated up to 10kg for the likes of catching barra, cod and snapper. For light surf fishing we suggest a light 9ft to 11ft graphite coastal surf rod rated around 3-5kg+.
Large Size Models (6000 or 8000 size)
Ideal for beach, rock or offshore boat fishing the 6000 or 8000 size reel are the largest of class and suit 9-13ft beach and rock rods or 6-7ft boat rods rated around 8kg+ Ideal for targeting Australian Salmon, mackerel, tailor, bonito, kingfish, snapper and so much more.
