Shimano have done a great job on the Sienna. About as affordable as its possible to get for a genuine spinning fishing reel, this item nevertheless provides a modest and effective range of features that make it well suited to beginners and anglers who occasionally fish.
It's best suited to smaller fish, such as pike, perch, zander and small trout. Its features include a thoughtfully designed spool lip that makes for longer casting distances. That same feature also helps prevent backlash and wind knots from appearing when in use - all good things for the newer enthusiast or occasional fisher.
Our opinion: If you're just getting into fishing and want a reliable reel from a trusted brand, you can't really get more than you do from Shimano's Sienna. It's an effective spinning fishing reel for smaller species, and its comfortable and consistent in the hand. Great stuff for an absurdly good price, if you ask the team here at Nihon Fishing!
