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.

8000 Shimano Saragosa
June 30, 2019
The Saragosa is one of my favorite offshore spinners for general offshore use. It is as smooth and capable as Shimano’s higher end line and has proven to be just as durable in all my applications.

Before purchasing you should know that the bail is 100% manual and requires you to flip it back over after you cast. I don’t see this as a negative but if you are used to an auto bail engagement it will take some time to get used to it.
ProsWaterproof/sealed bearings and drag system

Dropped it in the surf, like nothing happened!

Shimano Poducts Are Great
September 14, 2018
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.

Hello,  I currently have the SW5000 paired with a Trevala TVS66MH which I use for slow and fast jigging.   I fish and jig with this current setup in anywhere from 60 to 800 ft of water between the gulf and the keys.   It feels like I can go up to the 8000 or even the 10000 to get more line capacity and in hopes of being able to fight a bigger/stronger fish.  What would you recommend?  Thanks

The 8000 Shimano saragosa would be a good match also the Penn slammer 3 6500 would pair up well.

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.

Hi, I was wondering which Saragosa would go nicely with a century ss 1328 spinning rod. A 6000, 8000, or 10000 for the cape code canal. Thanks!
1 Answer
I would recommend the 10000 size Saragosa with 50lb braid spooled on it. Alternately, the Shimano Stella 14000 would be the perfect reel for the canal if you wanted to do that instead.

1 Answer
Hello Damian. Based on the information you provided you would need AT LEAST a 10000 series reel or higher. Which from that point would be based on what exact fish species and weight class you would be targeting.

Summer in South Florida has been rolling on without a hitch. Heat, humidity and lots of bait. Our bait run started several weeks ago with huge schools of pilchards and sardines arriving on the rock piles offshore and the inshore waters alike. These baits can... Read More
