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.

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

I will definitely be buying more of these in the future. They deal with saltwater better than others I've bought in the past. I have this 6000 on an 8ft Shimano Teramar and makes one heck of a do it all rod when I'm offshore/nearshore.

Get the 6000 if you're considering the 5000
February 5, 2020
The 6000 is just 1/2 heavier, it has the same gear ratio with a bit more retrieve, maybe owing to the larger spool. and has a good deal more line capacity. It's also the same price.

What is the best fit for the Saragosa SW6000 with 30# braid, between a Avid Series Inshore Medium-Heavy (VIS70MHF) or Heavy (VIS70HF)? To be used for Tarpon/Snook fishing at Inlets.
1 Answer
I would personally lean towards the heavy. You'll need some backbone in that rod to help with the Snook and Tarpon.

Hi there! I am looking to purchase a saragosa 6000SW spinning reel, to fish for medium size jacks (~10-30lb) and other pelagics, from the rocks. Can you advise which rod would work best for this application?! Many thanks
1 Answer
There are a few rods that will pair well with the Saragosa 6000. The Shimano Teramar Inshore Southeast Series rods have two rods that would work well with your application. The TMS-F70H and the TMS-X70MH both are great rods to pair with. Here's a link for both to check out: https://www.tackledirect.com/tmsx70mh.html https://www.tackledirect.com/tmsf70h.html Another set of rods that will pair with the Saragosa 6000 are the St. Croix Mojo Inshore Spinning Rods. The two rod models that we recommend are the MIS76HF and MIS76MHF. Here are the links to check out the rods: https://www.tackledirect.com/st-croix-mis76mhf-mojo-inshore-spinning-rod.html https://www.tackledirect.com/st-croix-mis76hf-mojo-inshore-spinning-rod.html

Here are a few options for a 7' Medium-Heavy rod to use from the boat. To start off, Shimano has a few options.... The TES70MHB is a 7' Medium-Heavy rated 40-80 line weight. Here's a link to check it out: https://www.tackledirect.com/shimano-tes70mhb-talavera-spinning-rod.html Shimano also has the TLS72MHBBL which is a 7'2 Medium-Heavy with a line rating of 40-80. https://www.tackledirect.com/shimano-tallus-blue-water-saltwater-spinning-rods.html If you are interested in Star rods, you can check out the SGB70MH which is a 7' Medium-Heavy with a line rating of 15-30 Mono, or 30-100 Braid.

LOOK FOR SARAGOSA REEL HAVE HARD TIME CHOOSE BETWEEN 6000 AND 8000 REEL, ARE THEY THE SAME SIZE IN BODY JUST DIFFERENT SPOOL? I WILL BE USING IT FOR BOTTOM FISHING, THROW PLUGS, AND TARGETING KING MACKEREL20-40LB AT PIER. PLEASE HELP ME CHOOSE A RIGHT SIZE REEL. THANKS
1 Answer
The 6000 and 8000 sizes are different in body styles. The 8000 is 5 1/2 ounces heavier. I would use the 8000 especially if your fishing from a pier. You will have more line capacity and this reel can take more weight lifting the fish from the pier.

I've narrowed down to the Saragosa 6000 SW for all around, bottom fishing, jigging, free line, and trolling artificial reefs off Mexico Beach, Florida Gulf of Mexico,30 - 60 feet of water. I need recommendations on a rod. Looking at Shimano Tallus spinning rod. Need input on 6'9" or 7'2" and is medium ok, rated 20-50 lb. braid, rather than a medium heavy rated 40- 80 braid. I think I will put 50 Lb. braid on the reel. Please give input before I purchase site unseen a 7'2" medium with 6000 Saragosa. Thank you
1 Answer
The 6000 Saragosa paired with the 7'2" Tallus medium will be the best reel and rod combo for your applications. It will also perfect to handle the 50 lbs braid you plan on fishing with.
