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.

I have not had the Saragosa 5000 long but it has taken a beating. Sand, accidentally dunked a few times, and lots of drag pulling hookups. I am impressed and I am looking forward to knowing if it stands the test of time.
ProsSmooth and tough. Enough drag to keep you in the game.
ConsPersonal preference but I wish it had a bailless feature from the factory.

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

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 ( 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

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.

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

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.

It took awhile to catch on up north, but southern anglers in the Chesapeake Bay area were onto the striped bass technique of Mojo balling, (a derivative of Parachute jigging), years before the madness trickled up into the New Jersey and New York... Read More
