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.
- Great reel that isn't terribly expensive. Very durable on the beach.
- Smooth drag
- Nice power when reeling fish in
- Smooth, and stays that way as long as you don?t beat it to bad.
- Sealed well.
- Good line lay.
- Excellent even drag pressure on big fish.
- Overall great reel for the money.
- I had to put a little grease in mine when I got it but other than that none.
- solid ar clutch - smooth
- wobbles - 5k has very small spool for a 5k reel size. I would have gotten the 6k if I realized how small it was.
Is it original export version 2014 or a JDM (Japan Domestic Market) version of the Spheros SW that had lower grade gearing and lesser construction?
While trying to take off spool because of string around my bail, the gear mechanism bounced over board and I am having a hard time finding parts for this reel. Where can I get this particular part?
