I bought this reel for surf fishing in Southern Cal. Most of them people I fish and communicate with use Shimano, but I thought I would be differerent, plus I own a Slammer and like it. For the price I think it is great. It has lasted me through my first season with no problems. I have dunked it once and thrown it another time. I hand this reel to the shimano fans and they are impressed by the smoothness. The drag seems good, but I haven't hooked into anything big enough to put it to the test yet. Perfect in my opinion for a light surf fishing outfit, it is currently paired with a shimano convergance 12'6" L rod and spooled with 6 lb fireline crystal.

I own the Sargus 5000 reel and what a beauty. This reel has become my go to reel from popping plugs to chucking bait. It is smooth, casts great and has the drag and power to let big fish run, stop them and reel them in. I bought this reel in the early part of the summer of 2011 and I have caught many a striper, blues and fluke with it. Biggest striper to date so far was 41 inches, a 35 inch blue and a 25 inch fluke and the reel handle them all with ease. I have also reeled in two big skates with my reel, now they don't fight much, they just lay dead and bury themselves in the sand but this reel had no problem pulling them off the bottom, it also helps to have a great rod for that too. I even caught a nice 10 pound false albie from the surf with it. After four and half months of heavy use, my reel is still out of the box smooth. Only complaint is that it scratches too easily, but it is metal and that is what happens. Great reel, I also have the Penn Fierce 4000 and I just bought the Sargus big brother, the Penn Battle 7000 because of how much I love my Sargus and Penn reels.

I received this reel for fathers day. I have the 3000 series and have taken on the water twice. I paired this reel with a Penn Legion MH 7' rod. The combo works great while being really light. I spooled the reel with some Power Pro 30lb braid. This braid is the same size size as 8lb mono. I really like this reel. I would buy another for other family members.

I am not using it for fishing.
I like its large capacity spool, where I can load a lot of 15#-25# fishing line.
I am using it for setting the rigging lines up, in the >70 Ft. tall trees,
in conjunction w. the arborist slingshot or a crossbow.

I went surf fishing for the first time with this reel(model 2000), I had so much fun fishing for surf perch. The reel got wet and the drag worked just fine everytime, it never locked on me. Worth every single penny.

Ordered the 7000, got the 8000. Happy about that.. It's a beast of a reel yet super smooth. I own 6 of these now.
