Featuring a 1000 size spool on a 750 body, the Shimano Saros FA brings new meaning to light tackle. The new Paladin Gear Durability Enhancement adds serious strength to the gear system while maintaining the smooth maneuverability you'd expect from a Shimano. 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.

Yes we can spool the reel for you. If you order online, write out your spooling instructions in the comment section. You can also place the order over the phone and just tell us what you would like. As for a spare spool, we do not carry them. You can order them directly from Shimano off their website and go to "shop now", "parts". You could also contact Shimano directly at 877-577-0600.
