The Shimano Spheros SW Spinning Reels offer more to the angler with the new Shimano SW concept features. These reels come in sizes for off the beach, inshore action, as well as blue water use.
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.

Smoothest reel I've ever used
Bought this reel for a plugging setup for striper fishing this season and I have to say its the smoothest reel I have ever used and hasn't disappointed me when reeling in fish. Great buy I highly recommend investing in this reel.

I was using the 5000 Daiwa Procyon on my 9' Lami SS as a light surf set up for smaller Striped Bass with the occasional keeper until it had to be sent in for service. I have the 5000 Shimano Saragosa SW and really like the reel so I decided to replace the Daiwa with the Spheros even though I know I am not comparing apples to apples. I have used the Spheros a few times and have caught Striped Bass to approx. 34". The reel is nice and smooth, casts well and does a nice job managing the 30lb braid I have spooled on it. I really like this reel. I only wish it was just a little bit lighter.
ProsExcellent value. Nice drag. Good line mgt.
ConsWish it was just a little lighter.

Are the 5000 and 6000 the same size body with the 6000 having a bigger spool or is the 6000 body bigger than the 5000?
These reels share the same body. The spool on the 6000 size is milled deeper to hold more line. -Paul
