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.

from israel asked:
February 12, 2015
What is the main difference between this and the spheros. what makes this 2 Oz lighter?
Alon, the main difference between the Spheros and the Saragaosa that makes the Saragosa lighter is the metal that is milled out on the bottom of the Saragosa's spool.

can you tell me the difference between the saragosa sw and the srg model?
"SRG" is just Shimano's model code for the Saragosa. Therefore, all Saragosa SW are identified as SRGXXXXSW
