Featuring a 1000 size spool on a 750 body, the Shimano Saros FA brings new meaning to light tackle.

The WP Drag (waterproof drag) also ensures no water can foul your drag system. In conjunction with the Propulsion Line Management System and Slow Oscillation for super long casts and no tangles, performance is nothing short of awe inspiring!

shimano saro sar4000fa spinning reel 5/14/15
good reel for the money, cast very far with the right set up of rod and braided line, strong enough to handle big stripers and hybrids in strong current, i plan to get one more of this reel in the future
Consi make sure that the roller on the bail catches the line when im retrieving, if it doesnt the line would be loose on the spool and this would create bird nest when cast again

Ultralight Dream
I have the smallest reel of this particular brand and use it for ultralight fishing on the Chesapeake. Great retrieve, can cast a mile and have had no issues with birds nest or line tangling. No hint of corrosion anywhere.
