I have a 6000 paired up with a 10' rod for the surf that I have been using for the past 4 seasons. This reel has been dunked numerous times while deep wading and still shows no water intrusion. The line lay is perfect, drag is smooth and I have had no issues controlling stripers up to 45lbs with it. I fish a lot of boulder fields where getting control of big fish quickly is crucial and the Saragosa 6000 has no problems putting the brakes on them. I highly recommend this reel!

I have the Saragosa in the 6000 and 8000. They are great for pitching at dolphin and cobia and also are a superb reel for jigging up snapper and grouper. Smooth drag and solid construction make this reel feel like it will last a long time. I couldn't be happier.

I am out here in Montana and I wanted some heavy duty gear to go paddlefishing. Tackle direct recommended this one and it couldn't have performed better. I was fishing in the Missouri River. Our group caught 7 fish with this reel, biggest 90 lbs. The drag was great and could stop any fish we hooked. The retrieval rate was also excellent and really helped cover water fast.
ProsRetrieval rate, smooth drag

Power with a lock down drag!!

Used this reel late summer and early fall to catch big bull reds. It has enough drag to stop a big bull red before he even gets started making his run. It has the power to turn his head and winch him to the boat.

This has been my go to reel this season and it been very good to me. I have taken a good number of keeper sized Stripers including one to 48" and it has performed great. It is very similar to the Spheros I have and the only differences I can tell from using is the Saragosa is a little smoother and faster.
ProsDrag Line mgt Durability (have gotten it wet quite a few times w/o issue)
ConsA little lighter would be nice

It feels solid, casts excellent, has great drag. Versatile reel, Strong smooth drag. I have used it for jigging, trolling, live bait, and bottom fishing. With all the species I have gone after with this reel a solid performing reel is important. Handles Gags, sails, Dolphin and Kings well.
Pros- Very Strong - Very smooth drag - Can handle any species. - perfectly sealed
Cons- price can be a but high for average angler.

I have recently switched 90% of my reels to all saragosa sw with the exception of a stradic fj and a saragosa 4000f. the reels are smooth, durable, pretty lightweight and can take a beating. I've got the 5000, and a couple of 6000. will be adding a 10k and 20k for heavy jigging soon.

Outstanding Reel
June 25, 2015
This reel as previously mentioned lives up to the Shimano aspect in every sense; well under a 1000 and even under 500 - The drag system takes a beating and keeps on giving. The rigidness of construction gives you the confidence to put all the power needed to bring in the most demanding species without flex in handle or frame. With every little attention to detail; maintenance is simple - sealed construction means less time spent lubricating and internal cleaning due to ambient conditions and saltwater. Using high strength, small diameter Japanese line, I do wish the line capacity was a little bit more. Those feisty yellow fin in the 100lb class will pull a lot of line on the initial run. Have had my reel stripped to 7/8 on several occasions
Prosconstruction, drag, looks, performance

I have used this reel and the SRG5000 for over a yearl and both have held up well. The drag system is the best I have ever used and I have had no problems. Be aware the bail is manual, Shimano doesn't tell you that in any literature but if that's no concern, this is a reel you should consider.

from Ada, Mi asked:
December 18, 2015
I am looking for a new spinning setup for casting surfaces poppers and waxwing jigs with for tuna in the Gulf of Mexico. What size reel and what rod would you recommend? I was thinking about loading it up with 65 # braid. What type of knot or wind on leader would you recommend to connect 60-80 # fluorocarbon to my main line?
As far as the reel goes I would probably recommend the 10000 size. It would be the best for the Smaller blackfin and yellowfin you'll run into for the most part. You can go up to the heavier reel, but it may feel overpowered for the smaller fish. Rods you have a ton of options, personally I am a fan of the popping rods from Black Hole. If you wanted to stick with Shimano I would look at the Terez series. As far as line connection goes, I wouldn't even bother with a wind on leader due to the line capacity that you will end up losing because of it. I would just use a Uni to Uni or Albright knot.

I was given one of theses used. Can it be used for offshore popping. Bluefin yellowfin. Northeast. What rod options would you recommend.
This reel would be fine for offshore tuna popping. Black Hole and Shimano makes rods that can be used for tuna popping.
