The Shimano Sustain FG SA6000FG Spinning Reel basically bleeds power! It’s got enough cojones to tangle with trophy class muskies, pike, king salmon and steelhead, as well as crossing over to the saltwater world and hunt monster stripers, redfish, and small pelagics including mahi, schoolie tuna up to the 50# class, and king mackerel to name a few. There are so many applications that this reel can easily tackle, and this is one reason why it’s one of the best selling Sustain models here at J&H. With such a diverse fishery in New York State, anglers have a shot at basically every prized gamefish with just a few notable exceptions (snook, tarpon, yellowtail and bonefish) – everything else is right in the wheelhouse of the SA6000FG! The waterproof drag system is capable of pumping out a stout 28#, which for you surf guys is a mere 2# short of the original VanStaal reels that have been deified over many hard years in the surf. Although you can’t swim with the Sustain SA6000FG, you can EASILY fish the open beach with mucho success using this reel – and the dexterous handle and power knob will keep you in fine tune with your hardware. Offshore, this reel will be a true monster – capable of jigging up stubborn pelagic predators thanks to the powerful 4.8:1 gear ratio and X-Ship system. The Shimano Sustain SA6000FG Spinning Reel comes equipped with a CF Cold Forged Aluminum spool that’s braid ready, and you can squeeze just about 300 yards of 40# standard spectra onto it.
