This question is to the Saragosa owners out there. Is there suppose to be play when you hold your spool and push and pull on it? My new Saragosa 18000 does; however, my Cabo 80 doesn't! Any feedback would be great!

Thanks
Eric

I felt that on mine and was worried I did something wrong when changing the drag washers. Glad to see I'm not the only one.

Can I just ask what you all think about the line lay on your 18000 sar's.
I think mine is pretty poor,it leaves ridges of line as it goes around the spool.
I have 2 spheros reels which have an awesome line lay.
I would have thought the Sara's would have been the same.

When I had saragosa it did the same but diminished after a few fish. Although still visible it was not as bad when new.

I watched the bail arm as I was winding the handle today and it was very noticeable how quickly the oscillating system was laying line over the spool.
All other shimanos I own have a very slow oscillating bail arm.
I wonder weather this design was done for a reason ?

Is it a Saragosa 18000 or a smaller Saragosa?

I noticed when I was spooling mine with braid it made three distinct ridges initially, but then went away as the spool was nearing being full.

Mine was opposite.
The ridges where smaller at the start and then got bigger.
What line dia and make of braid did you spool your sara up with.
