OHUB Review: Shimano Miravel Spinning ReelOHUB Review: Shimano Miravel Spinning Reel

Shimano reels have all the time been a staple in my family. Browing up fishing saltwater, I used to be launched to my first Shimano and I put that reel via the ringer. Since then I’ve constantly bought Shimano reels which leads me to my newest one – the Shimano Miravel spinning reel. 

Let’s begin out with what this reel is. The Miravel is a fairly priced ($139) reel that is available in 5 totally different sizes: 1000, 2500, 3000, 4000, and 5000. 

I bought the 2500 and paired it with a Shimano Intenza spinning rod that was 7-feet lengthy.

On my first few casts, the very first thing I observed was how gentle it was. The reel specs at 7.2oz. and was extraordinarily clean throughout my first forged. I used to be fishing a small river known as the Bouge Falaya in Southeast Louisiana. The river is teaming with largemouth bass and I used to be throwing a KVD spinner bait. 

Throughout my retrieves, the reel was very clean which was to be anticipated because it had 6 ball bearings. One other optimistic with this reel was the rigidity. The reel had no flex in any way which is the results of a carbon-infused CI4+ physique and Hagane gearing with X-Ship expertise. Shimano has finished a fantastic job with all their C14 reels. 

I used to be solely in a position to fish for about two hours however throughout that point I put the drag to the take a look at when a 4-pound bass smashed my KVD. The fish made a tough run and the Cross Carbon drag system was as much as the problem. One factor that I search for in a fantastic drag system just isn’t solely how clean the road leaves the reel because the drag let’s line out, however the way it sounds. This reel sounded virtually precisely how my Shimano Stradic Fl sounds which is one thing to be mentioned.

After throwing the KVD, I converted to a lighter, weightless Fluke Jr. The reel carried out effectively with the load change which might be due to its excessive gear ratio which makes it a flexible reel for working numerous lure kinds. 

Ultimately, I used to be very glad with the efficiency of my new Shimano Miravel spinning reel and advocate this reel for each freshwater and saltwater fishing. The reel hovers simply beneath the premium price ticket, which is interesting to each execs who desire a workhorse reel and inexperienced persons who need to take one other step up of their seek for a top quality spinning reel.
