Stay with us as we review the new Burning Shark spinning reel. This reel is in the 1000 size and is probably closer to what most would consider a 2000 maybe even a 3000 size reel. Drag is fairly smooth out of the box but after a weekend of using it definitely lost some of that smoothness. The Burning Shark is fairly loud when reeling in on a slow retrieve noticed almost a clicking sound which should probably not be there. Would say out of 10 would rate the Burning shark reel at about a 5.
