    Hi,

    I'm trying to decide between the 14000FA and the new 14000FB or 18000FB. I found some info citing the differences between the FA and FB series but i'm wondering if anyone has fished the FB's.

    Do the drags still need upgrading or have Shimano got it right?

    From what I have read i would say the drags still need to be upgraded.
    I have a new saragosa 18000. I have not been able to fish with it yet. I hope to next weekend. They are very similar reels.
    The saragosa is not very much more...

    FB is upgraded to Dartinium drag. Wear them out then go to carbontex
