The Shimano Sedona FE Spinning Reels feature a more compact body, machined handle, and double anodized and machine cut spool. They are more compact in design compared to the previous Sedona reels. The compact design features new XGT7 composite material. This design allows for this reel to be lightweight and with a rigid foundation. The Dyna Balance system eliminates wobble during the retrieve by counter balancing the rotor to enhance sensitivity and smoothness. By using computer balancing similar to car tire balancing Shimano was able to redistribute the rotor weight to create smooth rotation and eliminate vibrations.
Propulsion line management system: Reduces casting friction as line leaves the spool as well as reducing line-slap on rod guides
sweet on my clarus really smooth good all around reel
Conskinda got a cheaper feel, but for the price hard to beat

If you are looking for a starter reel (bought for grandsons) this is a great little reel. Smooth, good capacity and all the Shimano perks on a lower scale, affordable reel. Great performance in salt and fresh water.
ProsSmooth action, well built.
Shimano is the best

First let me say I am a Shimano fan in my opinion they make the best fishing reels. This Sedona is no different than most of the other Shimano reels I own. They give you all the have and some more.

I keep these on my kids small spinning rods. They absolutely tortured them last year with small bonita offshore and they still work great.

I bought this reel at a pawn shop because I wanted the rod it was attached to. It soon became my favorite ice rod and I have bought 3 since then. Super smooth and just amazing feel. Replaced all of my presidents with it.
