Anyone know much about the Shimano socorro reells. Am thinking of acquiring one to use for the larger yellowtail up in struisbaai . Read they quite good for jigging

these reels are just below the stradic range.
and above the exage range.

its just a money making range.

shimano claims that their top model this year will become next years 2nd model.

regtig, by now a shimano fx should have areo warp, bearings all over the show etc and still be the entry level reel.

what a joke ja
