Buy a Saragossa
Not sure how the new ones are, but I have a 4000 and 6500 in old version.. Spend the extra $50 and buy a Saragossa

Awesome
For all those daiwa haters out there i just have to day this is the smoothest reel I‚€™ve ever seen. The drag is great and has this new magseal technology. Overall really good

not worth it over the bg
shares 95 percent of the same parts with bg, only difference is the air-bail which is a very minor change and mag seal which is useless in a partially sealed reel,water can get right into the gearbox not to mention the extra cost of sending the reel to daiwa for service of the mag seal, if you want a boat reel get the bg, if you want a reel that can be dunked the cheapest fully sealed reel is the spheros sw.

pretty good reel
I like the reel overall but the only thing that I don't like is the weight and size difference between the 4000 and the 4500 I bought the 4000 loved it but I wanted something with a little bit more line capacity so I got the 4500. The size of the spool just doesn't look right with the size of the body of the reel. Very heavy for a spool of that size. Other than that it is a very nice reel!
ProsGreat performance and durability
ConsThe spool sizes compared to the reel body

If you liked the BG series, then you'll love the Saltist!
Incredibly built! Just bought the 6500 Saltist. I also have the 6500 BG and there is a big quality difference. If you have the extra money to buy a Saltist, i would definitely recommend to buy it. Feels very reliable! I know some people wont like my idea, but i would compare it to Saragosa (except the max drag).
ProsQuality reel and not extremely expensive
ConsI wish the max drag was a little higher than 33lb....

What rod would go good on the saltist 8000 for fishing on the pier for giant tarpon, big king fish, Bonita, sharks?
1 Answers
The Daiwa Saltist 5000 with a St Croix AVSS96MHF2 Avid Series Surf Spinning Rod would be a better fit for pier fishing and the fish you will be targeting.
