The Shimano Saragosa SRG10000SW Spinning Reel is the first entry in the lineup where pelagic hunting is the primary application. You can match the SRG10000SW on a 10 foot surf stick for a great big water setup, but it’s much more at home seated on a 7-8 foot heavy or extra heavy boat spinning rod hunting for tuna, dorado, kings, amberjack, or wahoo. The Saragosa 10000 has a heavy duty cold forged aluminum spool that’s capable of holding over 350 yards of standard 50# braid, and if you opt for a thinner superbraid you can fit even more! Packed with innovative Shimano features, the SRG10000SW is an amazing mid-priced saltwater spinning reel that performs like much more expensive reels of the past. Shimano’s proprietary X-ToughDrag system pumps out a brawny 33# drag, which puts this reel in true bluewater range. Even with a 4.9:1 gear ratio, the Saragosa 10000 really burns – cranking in 40 inches of line per every crank making this reel ideal for tossing iron or chucking poppers. The Shimano Saragosa SRG10000SW Spinning Reel utilizes Shimano’s patented X-Ship gearing system, which places an S-ARB ball bearing at either end of the Hargane pinion gear ensuring perfect gear placement even under extreme stress.

Took my new 20000 Saragossa to Florida with 500 yards of 80 lb braid. I matched it with 7.5 ft OTI tuna popping rod and love it. I caught grouper, big red snapper, and amberjack jigging butterfly jigs off the bottom in up to 300 ft of water. The nice part is the line retrieve rate, so it doesn't take so long to reel in. I will take it to Venice, LA in the spring for Yellowfin tuna. At 2:07 of this video is one of my victims: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQ-lhuxBQNI&list=UURjvuQEnYjHVWxvdYAGGt5g
i bought the 10000. feels heavy duty. feels slight bind. maybe its normal. not sure as this is my first saltwater reel. ive had the bail close one couple times on a cast. very minimal in feature but it gets the job done.
Monstrous reel and excellent customer service!
