The Shimano Spheros SW Spinning Reels offer more to the angler with the new Shimano SW concept features.

  • X-Ship: X-Ship provides improved gear durability. By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with bearings, the pinion gear maintains precise alignment with the drive gear. This means the gears will stay in the same position under the heaviest loads. The added benefit is that friction between the spool shaft and gear is eliminated, enhancing the casting performance with lighter lures, and allowing for longer casts.
  • X-Shield: By providing dependable sealing structures and gaskets at necessary points throughout the reel, X-SHIELD is able to block water intrusion. This protection provides high reliability and durability when SPHEROS SW is used in extreme fishing conditions.
  • Shimano CF Gear: To deliver the toughness and performance level required by saltwater anglers, Shimano utilizes their cold forging technology to deliver a gear with incredible structural strength that provides the best protection against abrasion and damage.

A True Workhorse

This is a powerful reel with low gear ratio and Hagene body/gearing. I mainly use it as a winching reel for shallow water rockcod off SoCal coast, and it works better than any spinning reel I've owned. It does not exhibit any body flex under heavy load at all. With 50lb braid I could bring up 15lb ling cod easily. Highly recommended.
ProsZero flex under load.

Exceptional Reel - Spheros 6000
December 14, 2020
I’ve used the spheros 6000 extensively, it’s been completely submerged multiple times in surf, heavily jigged, and also used on my canal rod. I rinse after use amd almost two years later it’s as smooth as the day I bought it.

This is a saragosa, with one less bearing that has no impact on power or durability. It’s the exact same reel as a gosa. The larger 20000 model has two fewer bearings than the gosa 20000/25000 so if you’re going for large BFT probably go with a gosa. But otherwise the spheros is the reel deal, can’t say enough good things. I have a lot of reels and this is my go to, because it actually feels more sturdy and solid than my gosa 6000. Not sure why, but buy the spheros, you won’t be disappointed.

I use this mainly for surf and jetty fishing in NJ and it has proven to be extremely well made and durable. No problems to report whatsoever.
ProsGreat reel that isn't terribly expensive. Very durable on the beach.

So good I bought 2!

I bought the Gosa first, and after reading some online reviews, I purchased a 10000 Spheros, and then a 8000 because it was so good. The only difference between the Gosa and the Spheros is a bearing and the finish! I took the 10000 out on a tuna trip out of Galveston and it handles chunky football blackfin no problem, and horsed in a nice 70lb yellowfin as well. Still super smooth, still great drag as the Saragosa, but at a cheaper price. Highly recommended!
ProsAffordable! Smooth drag Nice power when reeling fish in

If you like the Saragosa consider this reel

The Spheros is a great saltwater reel that is a step down but similar to the Saragosa. But if you need to save money the 5k Spheros is almost $70 cheaper than the 5k 'gosa.

Hey guy and gals. Gonna leave my review for my Spheros SW 8000. I have had mine for about a year a half, and have used it for every thing from bait and chunking 40lb redfish to pitch baiting mahi in the gulf. I can say that this is one tough son of a gun. If you are looking for an all around do all heavy reel this is it, pitch bait, big mutton, poppers, vertical jigging, etc, this is your reel. I have a couple Saragosas 6000 and 10000, these are great reels for specific tasks, but the lower gear ratio really makes the spheros an all duty reel. The lower price tag is nice as well, compared to the 250-300 I paid for the gosas. If you are specifically looking for a pitch bait or vertical jigging tee check out gosas. Hope this helps anyone who’s looking for this info. Keep on fishing.
ProsSmooth, and stays that way as long as you don?t beat it to bad. Durable. Sealed well. Good line lay. Excellent even drag pressure on big fish. Overall great reel for the money.
ConsI had to put a little grease in mine when I got it but other than that none.

Tough enough to tame Florida's most sought after gamefish
November 9, 2018
What I love about these reels is their durability, line capacity and drag system. I fish these reels on G. Loomis E6X rods and 30 pound Power Pro braided line, and use them for everything from tarpon, big snook and big permit to sailfish, cobia and dolphin. They are an all-purpose reel that will put the beat down on tough gamefish. The manual bail is nice in that it prevents wind knots in the braided line. I mostly use the 6000 series, but also the 8000's, and there's only the rare occasion that I have to chase fish. The line capacity is outstanding, the drag system, even after two or three years of daily use is smooth as can be. I do maintenance on these reels once a year and they've held up and are still in use today, which is more than I can say for any other reels I've owned. Simply put, when you buy this reel, if you take care of it, it will provide a lifetime of fishing memories.

Solid reel

I've owned this reel for one year and love it. Felt like a had to do a reveiw on it after landing a keeper cobia off the pier, I felt in control the whole fight and was impressed with the cranking power. Great reel for the money.

this reel wobbles right out of the box. Reading on one of the striped bass sites I see others have faced the same issue. I am going to return it if possible.
Prossolid ar clutch - smooth
Conswobbles - 5k has very small spool for a 5k reel size. I would have gotten the 6k if I realized how small it was.
