Hey guys,

I was looking at the Shimano forumn on another board and saw a post from the Shimano rep about some new saltwater spinners. Here is the link:

2CoolFishing - New Saltwater Spinning reels and accessory kit

Alot of folks are always looking for entry level spinners, prefering not to spend their money on a Stella right away, and the new Saragosa models, the big ones, look like they could be a great reel that is priced right. 44lbs of drag and only $299, with alot of the Stella style features. The Spheros is also listed and the big ones also get 44lbs of drag, at under $200.

Anyway, just thought I'd pass the info along.

Thanks Tom .... good info.

I have a Spheros 14000 that I upgraded with carbon fiber drag washers that handled the yellowfins pretty well on our last trip. I don't have the specs on it in front of me but I noticed that the new 14000s were a little pricier. I'd like to find out a little more about them.

I've got two spinners that seem to be working for me now so a new one will have to wait until I break one of these. I'm no tackle Ho .... ya know. :rolleyes:

While the new Saragosa looks interesting, does anyone feel funny about their "max drag numbers"? I'm not sure I believe those numbers considering a Trini or Saltiga conventional doesn't put out that much drag, even with the mondo drag washers under their main gears. How much max drag does a Stella or Saltiga spinner get? :confused:

I don't see a Saragosa in my future. I'm sticking with the proven ones. Is the Saragosa replacing the Sustain?

Sometimes it's hard to pass on a great deal. Yesterday afternoon I was searching on ebay and found a just listed "Buy it Now" brand new Accurate Twinspin 30.
I don't need it, but I couldn't resist the price and the seller had good feedback. He's got a couple of more great deals on Accurate reels. I might pull the trigger again today. Sold for: US $659.95

I don't know how much drag you can get out of a Trini, but the Ocea Jiggers, basicaly the Trini 40 Narrow do put out over 40lbs of drag.

Here is a sheet on the Stellas:

You might ask when they will be available on the 2Cool Shimano Forum. Bantam1 could answer that question.
