Shimano Poducts Are Great
I have recently changed out all of my vertical/ speed jigging gear. Since July I have purchased 2/6000 and 1/8000 Shimano Sargosa spinners. Also added another Trinidad 16N. All of the reels are on new Shimano Trevela rods of various lengths. There is a lot of good gear out there but I am brand loyal to Shimano and where it fits in to my price point ( max I can go). Love the Shimano drags. I have never had an equipment failure while using and the maintainence has been close to nothing. All of my new tackle was purchased from Tackle Direct. Their selection is great.
ProsIt is a Shimano
ConsAmazon Prime has spoiled me with shipping cost and the timeliness of the deliveries If I buy a rod/rods from you I don't want to pay another $7.00-$12..00 for a cardboard tube for shipping. My local tackle shop is free delivery.

Great All Purpose Reel
Recently purchased a Saragosa 10000 for jigging and as a general boat rod/reel combo. It’s lightweigt and compact but still has good line capacity on braid and can put the breaks on some decent sized fish making aggressive runs. Easily handled some large Bonita, Kings and Mahi on its first day out on the water. Would definitely recommend as an all purpose rod or for vertical jigging.
ProsLightweight Well built Good amount of drag Good line capacity Smooth reel
ConsDefinitely not cheap Would prefer slightly higher line capacity No notching or plastic/rubber on inner base of reel to secure initial line knot to

LIGHT, POWERFUL, SMOOTH
Just purchased this awesome reel! This 6000 on my st croix avid vis80hf is the absolute best setup I have ever owned, it might be overkill for slot size snook, but when you have a keeper you want to get it to the hand as fast as possible and this reel is the winch for the tow truck, lol you wont be disapointed!
ProsFor the money so far it cant be beat. From my experience with penns, cabos, and okumas, this is Shimano smooth, light, powerful.
ConsI'll let you know in a year if it holds up to the big snook, reds, and tarpon. But the true test is the BIG Jacks!!! If it stays solid I'll buy some more.

Great for all inshore
I don't own many spinning reels but after fishing with many professionals and seeing them use the reel I decided to give it a try. I love the smooth feel, great drag and even the look. It is a little heavier then I anticipated but not too heavy that I wouldn't buy another. FYI the bail does not flip after you cast or let line out. You have to manually close it. I got used to that in one trip. I reccomend this product for sure. I use it for blackfish, fluke and Stripers in NJ
ProsSmooth, look, power
ConsHeavy, bail doesn't flip after you cast automatically

Saragosa 10.000 drag pressure problems
Have used the Saragosa 10.000 now for a season on our charter boats in Kula Rompin for Sailfish (www.rompin-sailfish.com) In the beginning the reel performed perfectly, but after about 100 Sailfish fights the drag pressure decreased a lot during fast runs from Sails. Otherwise no problems and a very smooth reel
ProsSmooth, great looking reel, handle is great
ConsDrag pressure decreases a lot during long and fast runs from Sailfish

Saragosa SRG6000SW Fabulous Reel
I have this reel paired up with my Tsunami TSAWEBC-701MHJ Airwaves Elite Braid Casting Rod. Awesome match up. I use this combo for both inshore and offshore fishing, primarily for strippers and cocktail blues. It performs very well, it's sealed, light weight, extremely smooth drag, I've had no issues with this reel since I got it. I'm sure that I can probably use this reel with one of surf fishing rod and it will still handle extremely well. Can't say I surprised at all! I have two other Shimano reels Shimano's ULCI45500XSB Ultegra CI4 Plus XSB Surf Spinning Reel. I'd highly recommend any of the Saragosa spinning reels.

I have this reel paired with a St. Croix VIS80HF Avid Inshore and love the combo. It is super lightweight combo that can catch big fish, but its light enough for me to throw lures all day. I have been historically a Penn guy so I was not used to the manual bail, but after using it a few times and not getting broke off from the bail slamming shut I fell in love. Super smooth drag.

1 Answers
The Saragosa 5000 would be a good fit with a 9 foot rod in terms of size. The Saragosa is not a fully sealed reel and will be susceptible to damage if it becomes full submerged. The only submersible reels we offer are the Van Stall VS and VR series.

November 8, 2014
Hi I live and fish in Lanzarote part of the Canaries Islands targeting Bonito, bluefish and Dorado up to 30lb though I've yet to catch one that big I have been using a Shimano Stradic 5000fj nearly every day exclusively with lures for the past 7 months so it's constantly being cast out and reeled in it rarely gets salt water in it I now have to replace a few worn parts which considering the amount of use it has gone through I think quite acceptable I'm thinking of getting the Saragosa 5000SW would this be a better reel than the stradic
1 Answers
While the stratic is a great reel, the technology Shimano has put into the saragosa is superior. Give one of our product specialists a call and we will be more than happy to get you all set up!

for the SRG20000SW , which rod (OTI tuna sniper, TEREZ ) is the best match for popping, and can i go with that match for 80-100 lb tuna? tx
1 Answers
The OTI gives you a lot more backbone for fighting but is a stiffer rod. Either rod will work well for Tuna in the range you stated.

what is the best rod for the SRG20000 SW ?
1 Answers
That depends on what you are fishing for and how. If you are jigging Tuna, a 350 gram jigging rod would be great. If you are popping for Tuna, either a Black Hole popping or OTI Tuna Sniper in the 7-8" range is great. If you are going for Sharks and Tarpon, the popping rods would be great.

I bought a 9 ft 6 in Century Slingshot and need to pair up a light weight reel. I have a Saragosa 6000 from 2012 and it weighs 220z. I cast it a few times with century and the balance seems off. I love the reel and was wondering if the new 160z Saragosa 5000 is a good choice and will be noticably lighter. Was considering a 14 oz Quantum Cabo 50 but heard the Saragosa is better if it gets wet from saltwater. Can't afford a Van Staal this year...any other suggestions would be appreciated. Thx. John
1 Answers
The Saragosa 5000 would balance out the Century better than the 6000. The Cabo 50 is a great reel and would balance even better. If you do not regularly soak the reel in the surf, you will be fine with the Quantum. I have been using one for 6 years as my bait reel and it is holding up beautifully.

What is a good rod to matchup with the Saragosa 10000 for jigging?
1 Answers
I would recommend taking a look at the Shimano Tallus Blue Water Spinning rods or the Shimano Terez would both make a good choice for jigging.

The Shimano website has been updated. It now lists the Saragosa SW 5000 as weighing 16.0 oz.. A tester on Stripers on Line has posted that the Saragosa 5000SW that he field tested weighed 15.1 oz with line. Would you please weigh a Saragosa SW 5000 and 6000 and let me know what they weigh out of the box? I am very interested in picking one up for my wife. Thanks, Greg
1 Answers
