LIGHT, POWERFUL, SMOOTH
June 1, 2018
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.

Seragosa .... The Legend for a Reason
August 22, 2020
The Saragosa SW spinning reals are one of the best reels regardless of price. They are smooth, have great line capacity, great drag system, and are built to be rigid and water proof (essentially unless you submerge it for a while). I own in 8000, 20000, and 25000 sizes and absolutely love them!!!!! If you want a fantastic saltwater reel stop looking and buy a Saragosa.
ProsRid god construction, awesome drag system, water proof, great line capacity and SMOOTH.
ConsMay be a little more expensive then some bargain reels ... but worth the money!

Awesome saltwater spinning reel!
August 11, 2020
I bought the Saragosa 20000 for offshore fishing at the rigs in Grand Isle Louisiana.

The first fish I caught was a 36 pound Cobia. I didn’t realize what I had until I got it to the boat. My new Saragosa handled that hard fighting cobia like a champ!! I caught sharks, 30 pound bull reds and a quite a few red and gray snapper as well. I was extremely pleased with the performance of my Shimano Saragosa. I’ll be replacing two SW Penn reels with additional Saragosa’s for future trips offshore!!
ProsSuper smooth drag! Lightweight for its size.

I ordered 6000 instead of 5000. They're slightly different by a little. Fantastic reel for a 9 ft rod for jetties or surf fishing

May 16, 2020
This is a powerful reel from Shimano. Solid, powerful. I own the 10,000 and the 20,000. Will get another 20K. For offshore I paired it with Shimano Tallus Bluewater, unbeatable.
ProsGreat price for a fantastic reel. Shimano integrated some key features from high end Stella into the Saragossa, maintaining the price.

Saragosa Reels are Fantastic!!!!
March 20, 2020
Saragosa reels are fantastic reels. Smooth, light weight with large capacity and plenty of drag. I have an 8000 and three 25000 reels and absolutely love them. All the reels have Maxcuatro line to maximize line capacity. This is specifically important for the 25000 reels since they are setup to catch bluefin and yellowfin tuna and other big game fish and need the extra line capacity Maxcuatro provides. I use FG knot to attach either mono or fluoro top shot to the reels. Highly recommend and think Saragosa spinning reels are some of the best reels made.
ProsSmooth, light weight, strong, with plenty of line capacity and drag. They will last for years and years of saltwater fishing fun.
ConsThey are more expensive then some other reels but the Saragosa reels are worth the extra cost.

This is a superb reel, buttery smooth as typical for Shimano reels, but also very powerful. I've landed multiple tuna out of the Gulf coast with this beast. There's no noticeable flex in the rotor when handling large fish, and it will bring the big ones in. The drag is smooth and strong and responsive, and you won't break the bank like getting a Stella. Highly recommended!
ProsPricing vs Quality Powerful drag Powerful torque on fish Looks beautiful
ConsDoesn't have the rubber around the spool to seat braid, but that's a minor inconvenience

Can the 20000 be set up for right hand reeling? And if so, can it be ordered that way?
1 Answer
All Shimano reels have dual retrieve, the reel is also to large to ship with the handle attached already.

I have a SRG20000SW with OTI OceanXtreme Popping Rod 7'6", 60-80lb. What test braid (Power Pro) should I spool on? Is 65lbs braid as strong as 65lbs mono, just thinner diameter? Targeting medium YFT, Kingfish, Mahi Mahi, Queenfish, medium GT. Should I spool 100% with Braid (+/-500yds), or spool 100yds mono backing underneath? Thx
1 Answer
The 65 lbs power pro will have the same breaking strength of the same lbs mono, we would recommend filling it straight out with braid, or back it with a little mono and filling it with 500 yards of 65lbs braid.

from so. california asked:
September 1, 2014
How much 65 lb spectra can I put on the 10000 if I want a 100 yd topshot of 25 lb mono? Would the 20000 be a better choice? It would be for So Cal tuna fishing.
1 Answer
First, go with the 20000. You will be glad you did due to the line capacity and drag. You should get between 325-375 yards of 65 Spectra and the 100 yards of 25# topshot. The 10000 just won't give you the line capacity you will need.
